The follow are testimonials from a selection of our clients about the different work we have done with them.
MBF – BUPA
An organisational re structure immersed me into a new role requiring business acumen that up until now I did not require. I enlisted the support of High Performance for 1 on 1 business coaching and have never looked back. These sessions were tailored around my professional needs and have enabled me to transition into this role with ease and success. I would highly recommend Andrew and his team to anyone who wanted to invest in their own professional development.

Customised Workshops Achieving Outcomes
The Hobart Clinic
Over the past 12 months High Performance have completed a number of presentations and smaller training sessions for our staff. High Performance are extremely professional and tailor the content to suit the organisation. Christine and Andrew are very experienced presenters who adapt their presentation/session to the audience and always allow input, questions and encourage discussion on the topic being presented to ensure our outcomes have been achieved. For a small organisation we have found High Performance to be very cost effective and will definitely be contacting them again in the future.
- Alison Garrett (Finance & Administration Manager) The Hobart Clinic
When you run a small business, sometimes it is hard to see the wood for the tree’s. That is where High Performance comes in. Andrew and his team know what it is like to be in business, so they can quickly assess the situation and offer practical solutions making what can seem like huge problems easily solved. I thoroughly recommend them.

Meander Valley Council
Meander Valley Council has been using the services of High Performance for a number of years and find them to be an invaluable source of training in Tasmania. We have always been impressed with the content and presentation of the courses and their willingness to understand the unique requirements of our business. We highly recommend High Performance and will continue to work collaboratively with them to develop and deliver training into our business and local government.
- Tim Watson (Director Development Services) Meander Valley Council
Giving is just one of the many qualities Masonic Homes of Northern Tasmania prides itself in – and now it is giving back to its staff as well. At our two homes, the Masonic Peace Haven at Norwood and the Fred French Masonic Home at Newstead, all staff received training in customer service, communication and leadership with High Performance and this training contributes in part to the staff’s chosen qualification. The High Performance program is an ongoing commitment into the future of our staff to ultimately benefit our residents living within our organisation.
The benefits have been endless. We have gained skilled workers, which benefits our staff and our residents, with our staff being able to either master their craft and strengthen their skills further not only for the Masonic homes but also for themselves. The traineeships encourage more employment opportunities and appeal to the younger generations wishing to take on an apprenticeship. Our staff have definitely gained a more positive attitude towards work as the courses are aimed to benefit them.
- Jenny Hill (Director of Care) Masonic Homes
Solution Selling and Customer Service
Just a short note to say thanks for today’s training session.
Going in I was a little concerned about getting everything covered inside 4 hours, but your excellent presentation and printed support material not only ticked all the boxes but left us with plenty to chew on later. As I commented after the meeting, I have been too many presentations in all areas of radio operations over the years, this was easily amongst the best.

Partnering with our Clients
After 15 years in business the penny finally dropped and I realised it’s all about people. I needed to get my staff to share my vision for the company and get excited about being part of the journey if I was to succeed. High Performance created and delivered a training package which resulted in my staff being engaged and enthusiastic about being part of the big picture. High Performance staff are very professional and knowledgeable and they practice what they preach, nothing is a problem. I was pleasantly surprised with the cost of the training and what started as a one off training session has now become a working partnership between Cooper Automotive and High Performance, I highly recommend them.

The Theatre Royal Management Board
I’m delighted to provide a testimonial for High Performance. Over the past few years, The Theatre Royal Management Team has worked with Andrew Reimer of High Performance to increase our management skill, to help focus our use of resources, to develop new visions and to help build a more productive organisation. We will be continuing this working relationship in the future. Andrew brings great experience and wisdom to meetings; to our one on one coaching sessions and he is a skilful, engaging, entertaining and motivating trainer. I greatly value the contribution Andrew and High Performance Management has made and continues to make to our organisation.

Leadership Development and Employee Engagement
Over the past five years High Performance have been the preferred provider of professional services for Lady Gowrie Tasmania. These services range from developing and facilitating a leadership program for our management team, facilitating forums, undertaking assessments and analysis of the business. This ongoing relationship and engagement is a testament to the professionalism of Andrew and his team as well as the ability to gain a thorough understanding of our needs and customise services to meet such needs. Due to the high regard held for High Performance I have also recommended them to other agencies who similarly have accessed the services and been equally pleased with the outcome.

West Tamar Council
West Tamar Council has been associated with High Performance for a number of years and in that time the company has assisted with skills audits and training delivery. Andrew and Christine deliver excellent services, particularly, training courses and council looks forward to a continuing strong relationship with them and High Performance in meeting the future needs of the organisation.

Strategic Workshops and Customised Workshops
ANCA Insurance Brokers
ANCA has engaged the services of High Performance for several years, for professional customised training, private one on one coaching and more recently for facilitating a revised corporate management structure. For the management restructure, we initially discussed with Andrew our desired outcomes from the sessions, and through input, questioning and analysis, Andrew was able to meet our expectations and deliver results, in a concise, diplomatic and honest manner. Andrew is very experienced in his field, and secures your attention from the beginning to the end, encouraging participation from attendees and presenting to the highest standard. We would highly recommend High Performance to any company seeking growth, improved performance and employee engagement.

Not for Profit and Customised Workshops
Optia has used High Performance for a variety of training options state-wide, and we have been impressed with the efforts they have gone to customise training while considering cost and flexibility in delivery. Their consultants provide an excellent support service which includes a follow up meeting at the conclusion of the training. Feedback from the participants has been very positive, with many commenting on the professionalism and knowledge of the facilitator. As a not-for-profit organisation, sourcing quality training within a budget can be challenging and we consider High Performance to be a worthwhile investment.
- Mandy Hogan (Human Resources Manager) Optia
