 The decision to hire you was the best decision Ive made!! Your insight was amazing and it allowed me to really relax in the interview which was important

. Thank you once again and I will be definitely spreading only the best feedback about you!!"
I received an email not long after the assessment informing me of my success and progression onto the next phase, the sim. As you could imagine I'm ecstatic! I can honestly say that without the help of both of you I would never have made it this far. Your coaching was amazing and provided me with the tools and confidence to get through the assessment. For that I thank you and will be sure to recommend you to my colleagues and friends. What you both do is amazing, keep it up!
I passed the pilot selection process, thanks so much for all the coaching. That was without a doubt, the difference. The interview went well. I know my story telling sufficed because they hardly probed me for further details. The interview was not too different from what we practiced. The fundamentals you taught me in structuring an answer helped me immensely, so I thank you for that. Wishing you all the best
"Thanks for your lovely postcard, I was successful with the air NZ process. Your wise words and coaching are the best, I just hope you know how amazing what you do is and that it helps blokes like me play the game at these interviews to get the jobs that change the rest of our careers"
