What our clients are saying…


There was a need to have my large geographically dispersed teams, at SA Power Networks, discuss Safety at the start of each workday. The first person I engaged was Murray to assist in developing and implementing a program of work to have everyone talking safety and sharing key learning’s.

Murray has an ability to engage all levels of business and his authenticity allowed for a quick roll-out of daily toolbox across the state by being relevant to the people who are actually doing the work. He continues to coach trades, supervisors and managers and his approach is responsible for an improvement in Safety culture.

I cannot think of a better person than Murray to role model the values of customer service, safety and diligence.
He is extremely impressive as the face of his organisation and is energetic in delivering on client expectations and resolving anything standing in the way of excellence.
Any organisation dealing in safety culture would gain from working with Murray.

Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality, to lift a person’s vision and performance to a higher standard.
This is indeed what Murray achieved for our Company in providing our leadership the vision and awareness of their strengths and abilities. Murray was able to provide the leaders and senior management, the passion to excel, to recognise their individual talents, and to capitalise on them.
Murray was able to work with the leaders and senior management to understand, how to create a clear vision and to turn the individual into a special type of person.

Catherine Miller

Former HR Manager, AllightSykes

As Maintenance Operations Manager for UGL, I wanted to get the best out of my management and frontline supervision teams. Each supervisor had a unique skillset important to the operation, but each needed coaching and development to fully recognise their potential, and get them working together in common direction.
Through applying strengths based assessments, and working one on one with my staff, Murray was instrumental in helping each team leader understand how they could get the best from their respective teams, and drive performance improvements in each areas of the operation. I observed Murray’s unique approach based on understanding individuals first, and then helping them to realise their own strengths and how to apply these to their individual circumstances.
I would unwaveringly recommend Murray from Inspire My Business, to anyone needing a unique blend of individual coaching and workshop lead facilitation to bring out the best in you and your teams.

Andrew Sommerville

Operations Manager, Hunter Valley, UGL

Leadership coach of individuals and teams – Murray supported our leadership team through understanding our strengths, and playing to them. Murray was effective as a ‘remote’ coach offering packing by phone as well as through face to face workshops and one-on-one sessions.
Murray’s workshops are particularly fun and productive – he works to keep up the tempo, keep participants engaged, get the desired outcomes, while allowing exploration of ideas.
Little reminders and prompts via email, text and even through Link-In posts complement the coaching and keep focus on being great leaders.
Murray certainly inspired me and our leadership team to be better that we thought we could be!
Oh – and he is great with productivity, improvement and leadership language tools, too. Perhaps it is time to put together a leadership encyclopaedia – Inspired by Murray!

What’s it like being a client of Murray Guest?
In short , inspirational and uplifting.
I’ve worked with Murray now on numerous occasions and have had the pleasure of not only seeing my self develop and grow but have seen first hand the positive effect he has on teams. A story i have shared many times is of the employee i inherited who was marked as “for removal”. Not willing to accept this i engaged Murray as a one on one coach and over a short period was pleased to see the changes in this employee that brought his “talents ” into use for the team and the business and is now thriving with positive feedback from those that previously sought his demise. I continually get to work with Murray with new teams and old and on myself and am continually amazed at his passion for seeing those around him succeed and his dedication to making that happen is second to none .A pleasure to work with and someone who i will look forward to working with in the future..

Senior Site Supervisor, Orica

Our team has worked closely with Murray for many years and it is always a great experience. In recent months, we have participated in Strengths Finder workshops with Murray which have been incredibly insightful and hugely beneficial to the development of my team and my own leadership skills. Murray’s coaching and guidance throughout these workshops (and also outside of these sessions) has been so valuable to me and the team. Murray’s style is super open, honest, engaging and respectfully direct, all topped off with a great sense of humour! I highly recommend Murray for any leadership coaching, team development, workshop facilitation and presentations. What a legend!

Brigette Landy

Murray’s workshops are certainly inspiring and thought provoking. His approach engages the audience through team activities, fact based data and certainly delivers on the outcome of the journey towards zero harm. I would highly recommend Murray to work with teams and individuals to help achieve organisational improvements.

Murray was engaged by our our business in late 2016 where the team needed support in leadership and safe delivery of projects for our customers. Since coming on board, Murray has supported all levels of the business from the CEO to the delivery teams on site, with improving their performance from a safety leadership perspective.
The feedback we have been getting from our customers is that we have had a marked improvement in performance. Practical and personable support is the at the core of Murray’s skills. We look forward to continuing support from Murray for the rest of 2017 and beyond.

Ian McLoughlin

I sought the services of Inspire My Business because I was looking for an innovative approach to strengthen our team of staff to increase employee engagement and overall cohesion.
Through one on one consultation Murray provided me with tangible strategies to build on my leadership skills, articulate goals and put in place steps to achieve them.
The strength based workshops conducted by Inspire My Business provided our staff team with new insight into their unique strengths and abilities and how they can each capitalise on them to improve their work performance.
