HSC & Company was established to facilitate new ways for the government to integrate philanthropic capital and corporate donations to match taxpayer funds to address social issues including health, poverty and education. Purpose and intent were hard-wired into this business while it was still just an enormous and ambiguous aspiration to create social value.
Success relied on the ability of the Founder to actively engage with senior business leaders who were also philanthropic leaders to pitch the model to the relevant Senators. Supported with some powerful conversations, self-reflection and an extraordinary growth mindset, the Founder discovered a whole new level of his own unique brand and influence working in this space.
In less than three months the HSC&Co team had established and tested a successful model and went on to become trusted advisors to Senators, their policy teams, ASX20 companies and prominent family offices with generational track records in philanthropy.
“It is impossible to process high volumes of important information without help from people who you trust and share your vision. Jacqui helped turn this information into a narrative that brought a group of disparate, high-profile leaders to the table and readied them to act as a unified team. To say Jacqui was pivotal is an understatement and I hope the next opportunity to work together is just around the corner. Your first step is to share your idea with her. It’s how we created an unexpectedly good future."
Phil - Founder and CEO, HSC & Co
Carmenza’s ASX20 organisation required a company-wide customer strategy to bring greater alignment to a number of separate business units. As the senior Customer Strategist for the Group, Carmenza was way out in Black Crayon territory with a diverse set of stakeholders watching on.
Through some honest and engaging conversations, Carmenza worked on creating new opportunities for collaboration and co-design, rediscovering an artistic talent she hadn’t utilised since her school days. Carmenza transferred her concepts from draft Powerpoint decks to a storyboard approach adopting visualisation and narrative building techniques to engage others in the process – hugely compelling when used in combination with her own energising signature style.
Carmenza successfully led the co-development of the One Customer strategy. Her approach revealed a new set of creative skills and helped develop a more collaborative outcome.
"Jacqui's coaching opened up my mind to new innovative ways of solving problems. The new approach unleashed my inner creativity, helped develop a more robust strategy and drove a more collaborative process with key stakeholders. Not only has Jacqui helped me become a stronger thought leader but she has also helped me become a more collaborative leader."

Paige left the corporate world in 2013 to start her own business. Her company grew quickly, maybe a little too quickly. As a consequence, Paige found herself finishing each day doing the things that needed to be done but with little time and inspiration for future planning.
Through a series of conversations that commenced in 2015, Paige found the space and the instinct to weave the perspective of her future self and future business into the day to day running of her business. Paige affirms a deep sense of empowerment from answering her own questions and unearthing her own solutions through the course of each conversation. Her company continues to grow and expand into new services and customer segments.
“What Jacqui has fine-tuned is her ability to create a safe, provocative space. She listens with every part of her being and then strikes like a bolt of lightning with the very questions that probe the foundation, the heart and the future of the situation. Each session is an empowering reminder that I instinctively have the answers - they have just become buried under the weight of the daily grind, the burden of finances and the clock of time-dependent decision-making. Time with Jacqui feels like a session in subtraction, removing the barriers to a powerful, creative and intuitive future.”
