“Listening to Michelle Duval’s ECM downloads were invaluable for me as a coach. Her style of mentoring other coaches is relaxed, informative and respectful of those who have varying degrees of coaching experience. The quality of the questions asked by the coaches in the program is very high, and I benefit greatly by reflecting on my own coaching style and coaching clients. If you are just starting out as a coach, or have been coaching for ten or more years, I would not hesitate in recommending you consider Michelle’s ECM program. I can honestly say, without a doubt, that I am a better coach for having listened to Michelle’s ECM sessions.”
Sue Anderson, Australia

Leadership Coach

“I know Michelle as a human miracle of talent, heart and creativity…Michelle is without doubt one of the finest coaches on the planet. She has many tools at her disposal, but her work is instinctive; her process informed gracefully by experience and thorough know-how. Her attention with her coachee is total. She is a ferocious and consumate coach, wholly supportive but placing accountability of the coachee to make progress and be true to themselves as paramount. Michelle is an innovative and successul entrepreneur. Her ideas work and she fashions and grows confidently on her own inspiring journey of life and change. To meet Michelle is to be honoured. To work with Michelle and co-create with her is a priviledge. Inspirational!”
Prof Angus McLeod, UK

Master Coach

“I have been part of Michelle’s Excelerate Coach Mentoring (ECM) group for several years now. I have been coaching for 10 years now and I believe that it is priceless to be able to be part of a mentoring group where you have live interactions with a world-class coach and other world class coaches who are at the top of their coaching niche. For furthering my professional development and broadening my exposure to different coaching approaches, I can’t put a price on this level of access. Experientially, the group is friendly, supportive and interactive. ECM is definitely part of my success as a coach”
Sarah Nanclares, Australia

Business & Life Coach

“The ECM sessions are a rare opportunity to peek inside the mind of a master coach. Michelle shares her years of acquired coaching expertise in a clear and conversational way so that the listener can walk away and model the process that she uses. For each issue brought to the ECM session, Michelle clearly breaks down the structure of experience. She offers guidance around which questions, distinctions and meta-programs are most relevant to the issue. For coaches looking for more details and examples on ‘what to do when’ – this program offers that and more. After each session I walked away saying ‘Wow, that was fantastic investment in improving my coaching skills.’ Being able to listen to the recorded ECM sessions over again is another important benefit because you want to make sure you hear every important detail. I recommend the ECM program for any coach who wants to be mentored by a master.” Janine Rosart, MHSc, Canada

Motivation Matters

“I feel almost guilty for having access to all these amazing ECM sessions! I have listened to the sessions many times, and always find gems of valuable information, tools and tips each time. The real life client scenarios and business development topics are very insightful, and it’s helped me to take my coaching to another level. Michelle revealed many of the frameworks she uses with her clients and I have modeled them in my coaching – there is no reason to reinvent the wheel when you can model a Master Coach!”
Marija Castellari, Australia

Leadership Coach

“Participating in the ECM program is fantastic! ECM provides a forum to confidentially discuss real coaching scenarios and it gives access to an expert coach who can offer their perspective and discuss the approach they would take. As well as insight about your own coaching, it was also really beneficial listening to the examples others brought to the sessions and questioning what you would do in the same situation. I found it very insightful and highly rewarding! Access to the MP3 link was also great as it allowed you to revisit the sessions and pick up missed details at a later date.”
Selina Ryan, Australia

Executive Coach

“I have known Michelle since 1998 when I established the coaching movement here in Australia and New Zealand. I observed Michelle’s involvement in the industry and profession and can testify to her unwavering integrity, passion and commitment she has for her profession. I can go one step further to say that the people that I meet who either know her or have had contact with her personally or professionally speak very, very highly of her! If you are consider working or engaging Michelle in any capacity you can’t go wrong”
Tony Fitzgerald, Australia

Anyone coached or trained by Michelle will appreciate her warmth and also know they have indeed been in the company of a Master.

Jan Canton, NZ

Executive Leadership Coach

“As a coach, since I am dealing with people’s inner lives to make real their dreams, I feel a great deal of responsibilities to those I facilitate in achieving their outcome. That’s why I am very dedicated to honing my skills, so I can be as clean and effective as possible. At the same time, I want to make a living in this business which is not always an easy task. The Excelerate Coach Mentoring program has been of tremendous value to me. Michelle has been an example for me both as a coach and an entrepreneur, but even more so as a human being caring about other human beings. I feel her love and care in all that she does, and I found great value in her honest feedback and expertise about coaching as well as the business side of things. If you’re serious about helping others through coaching, her mentoring will definitely take your skills to the next level.”

I highly recommend Michelle if you are interested in getting the best out of your business or life. She is simply the BEST Master Coach I have worked with in the 15 years I have been involved in the personal development industry!”
Timothy Carroll, UK

Executive Leadership Coach

“Excelerate Coach Mentoring is essential for a coach wanting to take their skills to the next level. Each session allows participants to bring their challenge to the forum and other participants are encouraged to give feedback. This allows each coach to practice their skill of articulating their challenges and the skill of feedback when speaking to others’ challenges. Both essential basic skills of a coach. Michelle then gives her guidance on how to approach the challenge. Michelle is a World-class Expert Coach. My motto for myself is ‘learn from the best if you want to be the best.’ Michelle is passionate and dedicated about growing each coach’s ability. Michelle’s support as a mentor goes above and beyond what I expected. Michelle is extremely generous with her knowledge and material. I listen to ECM podcasts each week and learn something new each time.”
Dina Cooper, Australia
