If you want to improve the communications skills and performance of your team, this is an excellent program. It is focused, has great content and delivers results in a relatively short timeframe. I’ve seen better communication, increased confidence and greater productivity.
Ken Gunderson Briggs – Partner, Gunderson Briggs Accountants
The program was excellent and the feedback from participants was very positive. The highly interactive nature of the workshops worked really well for our participants’ learning style. The different components of the program meant the learning was put into practice in a way that we don’t usually get with traditional training programs. Mark is great to work with, delivers real behavioural change and is excellent value for money.

At times workload and time pressures, coupled with ever-changing priorities, can have you feeling like you’re chasing your own tail. This can translate to a loss of focus on the BIG issues. Working with Mark provides me with a simple approach to focusing on the critical BIG issues and helps me structure plans that ensure we achieve our medium- and long-term goals.
Rob McKay, CEO, Wendy’s
The coaching with Mark was one of the best parts of our leadership development program. Mark challenged my thinking and encouraged me to explore ideas outside my comfort zone. He was a great sounding board and provided me with honest and constructive feedback which resulted in better thinking and decisions. I got a lot from the experience.

We have just finished our second workshop with Balanced Curve in our pursuit to become an even higher performing team. The workshop was fantastic and we are already seeing increased levels of collaboration and accountability within the team. I have no doubt these workshops and the ongoing coaching are going to result in increased revenues and efficiencies.
Ross Tomaino, COO, Innovation Ice Cream
When I’m looking for a coach, I’m looking for someone who can help me or my team find solutions or approaches that define new pathways. I’m not looking for ‘feel good’ input; I want firm, truthful insights. Mark has these skills and he applies them in a supportive and commercially firm style that most coaching consultants could well learn from.
Brian Newman, former CEO, Sydney Olympic Park Authority
Balanced Curve’s ‘Higher Performing Teams’ workshop was perfectly pitched to equip the senior members of our two key fundraising teams to work more collaboratively and effectively together. This was a high impact program that will help drive our future results. I’d certainly recommend it to other organisations.
Susan Henry, Head of People & Culture, Starlight Children’s Foundation
Mark Rosenberg had a tremendous impact on our team. He transformed us from a fragmented and non-cohesive group into a highly effective management team. As well as being a great mentor and coach, Mark has a wonderful ability to filter through the problem and find a creative solution or, even better, a new idea.
Alana Hay, Director, Milestone Projects
Mark acted as the mediator in a long-running dispute between Athletics Australia and the Australian Track and Field Coaches Association. Both sides were very pleased with the way he managed to engage us, understand the different perspectives and assist us work through the many complex issues to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement. On any objective assessment it was not an easy exercise and Mark did an outstanding job. We would have no hesitation in using Mark again.
Dallas O’Brien, CEO, Athletics Australia

He managed a diverse group of 30 Development staff from around Australia, keeping them on track and ensuring that the sessions ran to time. Â
Greg Meagher, Managing Director & CEO, Athletics NSW Limited
Mark Rosenberg just gets it. Having worked with Mark in various capacities over many years, I have complete respect for him as a business partner and advisor. At times (unknown to him) he’s referred to as ‘the smartest guy in the room’, when he talks, people listen, and this makes him invaluable to any organization. A key skill of Mark’s that I’ve always appreciated, is his ability to listen, absorb information, and formulate a succinct response, and be direct about it. This skill means he has the unique ability to get to the root cause and map out a solution more efficiently than most.
Toby McKinnon, Marketing Director Bank of Queensland
Mark is a strategic thinker who is able to help his clients analyse their environment, opportunities and develop game plans. I recommend Mark for anyone in need of quality advice either as executive coach or business consultant.
