The Mediator …

Michella Francis

Known as the NO-DRAMA QUEEN, Michella Francis, Founder and Managing Director of Venus Consulting has uniquely developed the Workplace Prosperity Program. Working with your business for 4 to 6 months, Michella will remove obstacles within your business which are of detriment to your profit and will furthermore assist you in achieving a non-comparable competitive edge over your market competitors.

After having her daughter back in 2014, Michella thought about getting back into the workforce and dreaded it.  She thought to herself: “why am I having such a big knot in my stomach thinking about going back to work again? Wouldn’t it just be wonderful if I would wake up every morning and go to work happy and motivated because the workplace culture was one of prosperity?” Michella thought about developing a program where the workplace culture is a drama-free workplace culture where everyone is feeling valued, guided and appreciated.

Join Michella as one of the guest speakers at the BWIB “Biz Expo & Family Fun Day” at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron on Saturday, May 26 from 1 pm for Workshop # 5. “Identify & Managing:  Bullying, Harassment & Sexual Discrimination “.  Entry is free but bookings for guest speakers are essential.
