What our clients say…

We have learned so much from Stapleton Consulting’s coaching, as we have gone from being an owner-operator to a business with a growing team. They have taught us about how to protect our business and our people by using good employment practices. We understand now about employment legislation, the importance of having clear processes and how to get the basics right for good workplace culture.
