Meet your ActionCOACHVanessa Moore
Vanessa Moore discovered in 2004 that there was a job out there that she could love doing. When she found out what Business Coaching was all about she just knew – This is it! Took the plunge, bought her licence and started her own business.
Vanessa has experienced everything business owners go through, excitement, fear, panic and loss as well as the positives of success, joy and achievement. Sound familiar?
Read on to find out why Vanessa’s skills as a coach make her unique:
Vanessa started work for the National Australia Bank in 1988, when banking was a service industry, and quickly discovered her aptitude for developing systems and dealing with customers. She worked there until 1999 when she decided it was time for a change. With Pacific Brands and Caterpillar she learned more about working with a team, the logistics that a business needs to have in place, as well as streamlining efficiencies to create a bigger bottom line. She also became an expert at developing reporting and recording systems.
Vanessa’s experience in both large and small business means that she will be able to understand YOUR business. And show you, that once you know how your company is tracking, you can make the changes that you need to GROW it. Following the majors, Vanessa moved through various roles until she worked for a small business, a 3rd party logistics company. This was the first small business she
had worked for and she learnt very quickly how different and difficult working for a small business is to the Corporates.
After a year Vanessa decided to move on again and went to work for Maersk shipping where her skills for debtor control were discovered and she was asked to complete a rather large task and bring their debtors and payment systems under control. (If you
have outstanding receivables – then Vanessa is your girl. That money should be in your pocket and not in limbo because you don’t have the tools to chase it up.) During this time Vanessa was approached by Bruce Frame, an ActionCOACH, and asked to work for him part-time working on the business development for his business. She agreed and worked for Bruce, as well as Maersk.
Just 6 weeks after commencing the role with Bruce, Brad Sugars presented his MindRICH seminar in Melbourne. Vanessa attended, with her now-husband Peter, and on the way home realised “I want to be a coach – this is what I want to do, I just love it!”
In August 2005 Vanessa went to Coach training in Las Vegas and has never looked back. Coaching is her purpose. Vanessa’s passion, drive and her unique set of accountability reporting skills will mean that YOUR business can grow in ways that you can’t imagine. Vanessa moved to Perth in June 2009 and had to re-establish her business in a new and unfamiliar environment. Her skills as a coach have enabled her to grow her own business and change the lives of many business owners that she has, and is, coaching.
Along the way, Vanessa has won ActionMAN awards at ActionCOACH Regional conferences in 2008 and 2009 and was also a finalist for Most Improved Coach of the Year in 2008. In 2015 Vanessa won a Global ActionMAN Award and in 2016 & 2018 Vanessa was awarded another ActionMAN voted on by her peers for her Community involvement with the Australia New Zealand group. Vanessa is also the First Female coach in Australia to be inducted into the Chairman’s club – 10 years with ActionCOACH. She does bring some special skills to her coaching; working with Team as well as creating systems, utilising what she learnt working for Corporates. Vanessa is able to
motivate her clients and their Team to do whatever it takes to achieve their vision.
Vanessa believes very strongly in the 6 Keys to a Winning Team and has proven that, if you work on this, your business will grow and function well. Behaviour and Culture are also very important and often business owners focus so much on the numbers that they miss the “taps on the shoulders” and their team stops performing. Coaching is not only her business but her vocation. Vanessa is dedicated to helping anyone in the business that asks for it, whether it is an appointment to discuss challenges and come up with solutions, talking about books to read or 1-2-1 Coaching. There is something on offer for everyone in business.

“ We have had the great fortune of working with Vanessa since October 2008. We have found the experience to be extremely positive. In the beginning….. Our company’s output had been growing at an unprecedented rate, so initially, I was slightly sceptical of the benefits of coaching as I believed we were doing pretty well on our own. However, upon closer examination (with Vanessa’s help) we discovered a multitude of problems; our internal systems, procedures etc remained outmoded, staff training was poor, debtors were getting out of hand, amongst many others. Recognising the need for extensive improvement, we signed her on. Working with Vanessa has enabled us to focus on and systematically improve upon those areas which needed fixing. Now you may think, “Well I can do that myself”, as I did. However I have found much greater success when working with Vanessa for a number of reasons; having someone to hold things accountable for, thereby keeping us on track, the objectivity and insight she brings to the business, having a knowledgeable professional, equipped with a wealth of business material to turn to for advice and to be able to discuss matters with. Furthermore, Vanessa has also been training key members of my staff. I have seen my staff imbued with a greater sense of purpose and focus, not to mention improvements in their morale and productivity. They are also working with Vanessa to create new systems and improve our existing processes to ensure we are efficient and able to cope with the growth we experience every year. In short, we have had, and continue to have, a great experience with Vanessa and highly recommend her services to all! ”

Coach Vanessa Moore
“ …Vanessa is fundamentally good with people. She is smart and learns quickly. She has earned everything she has including respect. Business coaching is not an easy business because people will resist change. It’s really about taking people who are serious about improving and helping them be the best they can be. If you don’t want to be better don’t waste your time or that of the coach. A professional athlete doesn’t employ a coach unless they help them win. And if you do want to be better, don’t expect it to be easy. Nothing worthwhile ever is. Vanessa challenged me in ways I didn’t expect and the two of us achieved outcomes that neither would be able to envisage at the beginning. It was a relationship. Certain tried and tested formulas work but business is fundamentally about relationships and getting stuck in and making things happen. The coaching relationship I had with Vanessa helped me get the results I needed and that’s all there is to it. ”
