What Our Clients Say…
Through completing the CMM course my reality has changed to one in which I can be financially free. I have learned so many tools and ways in which I can use my hard earned money to my best advantage. Who would have thought finance could be this much fun.
Jodie Williams – CMM Graduate 2016
I thought the training provided was a fantastic opportunity to upskill. Steve is a very good instructor – professional, knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and several times went beyond the call of duty to make sure the classes’ needs were considered. He did a fantastic job with teaching the classes as a whole, while ensuring adequate one-on-one time with each of us.

I was very impressed with the training Steve offered and have been recommending him to others. There’s a good chance we’ll be wishing to do more staff for LUV and a few others for 4WD course in near future.
Stephen Robson, Department of Conservation – 8/10/15
Please thank Steve on our behalf, we really appreciated that he came this distance to run the course. Murray and Casey appreciated the way he worked with both of us getting a lot out of the course. I also appreciated the easy and prompt communication I had organising with Steve.

I just wanted to thank you so much for making CSBM such an enjoyable, informative and inspiring experience! You are amazing at what you do and we are very lucky to have you in the Wairarapa. It must be very rewarding to know that you play a big part in turning dreams into reality for a lot of new business owners. I’ll be back to do CMM next year!
To all my class mates, what an incredibly talented, gutsy and creative group! I’ve loved meeting you all and know I’m going to miss our Wednesday catch up. Best of luck for all your new business ventures. I look forward to reading about them in the news!

I joined the CSBM this year to further develop my business. I have run a practice for nearly 25 years but I realised my business organization was poor. Each of the six topics taught me far more than I expected and the best part was it was fun. Jeanette runs a very lively class where apart from the incredible amount of support each person receives from her, the friends I made in class are always willing to share their skills. I have been energised by the understanding I have gained about running a successful business and strongly recommend it to all (friends and patients alike) that they will learn heaps from the course apart from being entertained by our lecturer. I have enrolled for the Money Management course next year already to be sure I get in.
Julianne O’Donnell (Student CSBM 2015)
CSBM has been vital for setting up the gym. The knowledge and tools we have been given throughout the course have been extremely helpful and we would not be as capable as we are now without it. Along with all the learning, the networking and friendships with other students have been just as valuable. Strength Nation would not be as successful today without CSBM.
Anna Keen and Matt Henderson, Strength Nation Gym, Greytown (Students CSBM 2015)
For me the CSBM course was a big commitment in an already busy life, but absolutely worth it. The course was well organised and professionally delivered by Jeanette.
I would recommend it as hugely beneficial and totally essential for anyone desiring growth in their business.
Deb Allen, Co-Owner, Avantiplus Masterton
Brilliant course, so comprehensive. A must for anyone wanting to start a business for the first time, but equally useful for anyone already in small business. Can’t recommend it enough! Even with over 15 years of being in our own small business, I found this course beneficial and still learnt plenty! Fully recommend this complete course.
Vanessa, Robertson Canvas, (CSBM student 2014)
I was at a time in my life when I needed to make some sound personal financial decisions. Whilst searching the internet I found the CMM course and spoke further to Jeanette about it’s content. I had little time to commit to study but attending night class (as I work fulltime) was appealing and it was only for a short period. I signed up and it’s been the best decision I made. Now I’m focused on my financial future, have goals to get me to where I want to be and knowledge to support my negotiation with banks and insurance companies. Finally I have taken charge of my money and how I spend it. Thanks Jeanette.
Bev Jack, (CMM student 2014)
I had spent a good long while contemplating doing the Certificate in Money Management course but finally took the plunge this year and how I wish I had studied it years ago!! The CMM course has been nothing but absolutely brilliant. It’s interesting, informative, challenging and without doubt the best thing I’ve ever done for myself and my family. Jeanette is a great tutor – warm, encompassing, funny and very knowledgeable. Everyone should do this course – it’s life changing.
Sally Duncan (CMM student 2014)
Having been a student of Jeanette’s on the Certificate of Small Business Management course, I can highly recommend it to those either thinking about starting up or those already in business. The course covers a wide range of relevant topics, resources are comprehensive and user-friendly, and no-one gets left behind. Having the choice of classes to attend provides the flexibility that busy people need also. But the real gem is Jeanette’s knowledge and teaching style – not only does she have the knowledge of the subject, but she has years of practical experience which she freely shares with us, and is one of the most engaging tutors I have come across. I have gained a huge amount of value out of this course, thank you Jeanette!
