Accelerate Your Career

Sharpen the Saw, Fasten your Seatbelts.


SharpIN UP

We're inviting you to join the Sharpin community. It's like having a team of professionals focussed on helping you accelerate your career. Imagine that: a whole group of people strategising your next promotion and pay increase. Do you agree that having that team behind you will help you get to your career goals faster than if you just went it alone? We do too. Join us.

SharpIN members are from all over the world. We meet to share and have access to the best advice, tools, and assistance in reaching their career goals.

Every month we have a one-hour Sharpin Masterclass with a high profile member of the business community who is sharing success strategies, tools and tips. Then you implement.

Then there is the Sharpin Mastermind. It's a facilitated group webinar where we workshop the chosen methodologies and increase accountability to implement.

Knowledge is only power when applied. And we're here to help you do that.

Your membership includes access to Sharpin Mastercourses, online courses for self-paced learning. These include:

  • Tim Wade's Promotion Payrise Express program

  • The Cache Group's Supercharge Your LinkedIn Profile

  • Get The Gig - Gold Star Interview Techniques from professional recruiters

  • Thought Leadership Mastery - building your personal brand for growing your career influence

  • Coaching Skills for Leaders

  • Motivational Team Tools

Everything we do is to help you sharpen the saw.

I was extremely fortunate to have been introduced to both John Merkus and Andrew Hurnard from the Cache Group. 

I first met John and Andrew when a friend of mine sent me a link to one of their free workshops.  Taking that step was the best thing I did.  

Their combined experience and knowledge of the current market and recruiter’s selection process was very impressive. 

I knew I was in good hands.  Working together we were able to create something unique that showcased my experience and achievements.  Providing me with input and insights that I did not even consider.

It was like giving my LinkedIn Profile and CV and make over.

Since my new LinkedIn profile was published, I have had people actively viewing my profile and recruiters approaching me with opportunities.  This experience boosted my confidence and allowed me to consider and submit applications for roles that I would not have normally considered.

And best of all I had fun doing it.  These guys made it look easy to achieve.  Seriously, this was the best investment I made.
