Here is what other Australian and New Zealand based trainers have said about working with Compass Seminars:

"I have conducted training for a large number of organisations in Australia, North America and Europe. Working with Compass Seminars stands out as one of my MOST positive training experiences. All I need to worry about is the training..... I can be ABSOLUTELY confident that I do not need to worry about transport, accommodation, the room set-up, the AV equipment. A supremely professional organisation ( and I know that their paying customers regard them in the same way) oh, and they are friendly and hospitable too."

Michael Durrant, Director
Brief Therapy Institute of Sydney

“Working with Compass is a distinct pleasure. I have been ‘across the ditch’ to work with them on two separate occasions now and was extremely well looked after by their friendly and professional team. Everything was organised down to the finest detail, all I had to do was turn up and speak”

Peter Bazzana
NSW Institute of Psychiatry


" I worked with Compass doing a series of one day workshops across New Zealand. I have worked as a trainer for a long time and I was just delighted by the whole process, from the original conversation to the final flight back to Australia.

The attention to detail that the team at Compass brought to the organization of the tour was impressive. Everything was anticipated and happened the way it needed to; the flights, transfers, accommodation, and perhaps most importantly, the workshops themselves. And finally, for me this work is about more than a job, it’s how I spend an important part of my life, and so I particularly enjoyed the very human, personal and warm way all aspects of our work together were conducted. I would be delighted to work more with Compass."
