What Clients are Saying

“CotW’s advice and support through my first experience of founding and running a successful new business was invaluable. Merle has a rare capacity to understand the personal dynamics at play in any professional context and the leadership elements required to manage effectively through the myriad of challenges facing any modern CEO. Her advice is also informed by real world operational experience and views problems through the pragmatic lens on what is required to get things done in a corporate environment. It would not be over claim to state that I am a healthier, more grounded and a more effective leader for having sought Merle’s advice on a regular basis. I would not hesitate to recommend Merle’s services to any executive facing the challenges of modern leadership without easy answers.”
Paul Hunyor, Co-Founder of onebigswitch.com.au


“Merle has been instrumental in my personal growth over the last 9 months. She has not only provided a new perspective on situations, but helped enhance my presentation style and better engagement of all stakeholders within my company. Her pragmatic coaching style and genuine encouragement has contributed significantly to my recent achievements. I would highly recommend her for any Executive Management looking to grow their team’s capabilities.”
Lauren Hall, CEO iVvy


“I engaged CotW to assist in defining a strategic plan and communication strategy that I could deliver to a number of our business stakeholders. Merle helped to organise and crystallise our message and in turn a clear and coherent strategic plan was created for us to deliver to our investors. She provided me with both strategic advice as well as creating an easy-to-use document that captured our key messages. Her ability to clarify one’s thinking and to provide sage advice was extremely helpful in building out a comprehensive strategic communications plan.”
Guy Jacobson, CEO, Consolidated Cloud Services


“Merle is an intuitive expert. Her integrity and honesty allow you to trust her personalised process – of which only good things can come. Merle applies her corporate experience with her understanding of people and culture and gets results. She is skilled working both at a personal level or with a large diverse group.”
Maria Atkinson, Director, XO Group


“Merle Singer is one of the most dynamic and delightful individuals I have had the opportunity to meet and privilege to work with. As a business coach she is superb and has an ability to help resolve even the most difficult situations. When we first approached her, both Merle and myself did not think the situation could be resolved. However with dedication, patience, perseverance and hope, she worked with us to pull apart, breakdown and reveal underlying issues that we would never have otherwise been able to notice and resolve. I cannot recommend her highly enough. When you feel you are at the end and the only way is out- Call Merle!

I’m so grateful for all she has done for me and my business partner. We know that in the future should we find ourselves in a situation, it is reassuring to know we can contact her to work with us and guide us correctly. She is so warm, friendly and charismatic, you can’t help but enjoy working with her even through difficult conversations. She makes the experience a true life changing one. I have learned and grown so much personally and professionally. Thank you Merle Singer, you are one in a million!”
Sia Hendry, Co-founder, You by Sia


“[Boot&Soul] was a magical combination which led to relaxation, escape, rejuvenation, re-inspiration and a re-setting on the path we are all on. It wasn’t just the content (which in itself was wonderful) but more than that, it was how the two of you worked it together – every little detail that you had thought of and put into the weekend didn’t go unnoticed and was so very much appreciated. I will be recommending it to others and I will be coming again – try and keep me away!”
