Speakeasy generates HUGE results - quickly.
We build brave leaders and courageous cultures.
There’s nothing relaxing about the current pace of life and work – we’re all doing more with less, in environments that are faster-paced and more fragmented than ever before.
We work with leaders and organisations who don’t just want to keep up with the changes, they want to lead them. To us, this means taking an integrative approach to life, work and leadership. It means merging science with intuition, head with heart.
We equip individuals to create extraordinary lives and careers, and enable organisations to build innovative and collaborative cultures in which everyone belongs.
We deliver world class leadership and training programs focused on inclusion, belonging and psychological wellbeing. We’re proud to say that the results are in. Our programs work.
Our women’s leadership programs, Speakeasy, Ignite and Elevate, inspire women in their leadership journey and sets them on a pathway for extraordinary and sustained success and fulfilment.
Our revolutionising leadership programs, Level Up, Rise Up and Brave Leaders, create sustained shifts in mindset and behaviour that unlock individuals, teams and organisations to their full potential. Our outcomes are second to none: 99% of participants who work with us rate their courage and ability to give back to their organisations significantly lifted as a direct result of working with us.
Inclusion & Belonging
Our inclusion and belonging programs, Belong and Disrupting Bias, draw on best practice neuropsychology and performance psychology to equip participants with the self-awareness, strategies and skills to create teams in which everyone feels motivated and empowered.
I have had the privilege of working through two programs with the team at Inkling both as a participant, and a supporting manager of a participant. In both courses the changes have been profound in terms of taking experienced team members and helping to adjust their focus and grow their ability to a significant level. The Inkling team are extremely proficient at utilising cutting edge core material and thinking to generate programs that will be supremely beneficial to participants and managers across a wide variety of roles, industries, and experience levels.
Working with Inkling has been a joy both for us as clients, and incredibly impactful for those attending their sessions. The first time we commissioned Playing to Your Strengths it ‘sold out’ almost instantly, and we could have filled the room twice over. The Beyond Bias workshop was as popular, and the evaluations for Ascend are already race after just two days of the programme. – I love Inkling’s ethos, and their honesty, energy and enthusiasm is what makes them different to other leadership development providers.
Working with Inkling has not only been energising and exciting for our organisation, their solutions have directly impacted both our corporate challenges and group the capability of our future leaders. We easily worked through the needs of the organisation, identified the right solutions for our culture and allowed the program to group through the feedback of the participants and the needs of the organisation. The results speak for themselves. Every measurable had a significant improvement.
If it wasn’t for the fabulous authentic coaches at Inkling and their tailored and unique leadership programs I would never have had the courage to step up into the leadership roles I am currently doing. Their programs profoundly changed my life both professional and personally and gave me clarity, believe and strength to lean in, take ownership of myself and lead. Before Inkling I felt like I was stuck and undeserving of leadership roles. I credit Inkling with removing my fear and making me fiercer.
Absolutely fantastic workshop that delved into the psychology of why we behave the way we do when talking in front of groups. It also gave plenty of strategies to combat this behaviour. We learnt techniques that I’ll use for the rest of my life. Not easy to say that after many 3.5 hour workshops!
Inkling’s program is truly transformational. It has empowered my to shift form a pretty limiting mindset full of self-doubt and powerlessness, to an incredibly liberating new way of thinking about myself, my strengths and my goals. I have a new energy and the impact of how I’m thinking and acting differently is starting to have a snowball effect. I have confidence that I didn’t have before, which means I am stepping up to the table and feeling good about the contributions I am making.
Today I had to do a presentation in front of approximately 400 people. I am normally terrified to the point of wanting to pull out, however, I focused on my vision, ignored my inner lizard, and completed some serious breathing exercises beforehand… I delivered a great presentation. I have done nothing but praise the course and coached a few of my peers using the fantastic content. It really has made a difference!
From the first meeting, I could tell that Inkling were passionate about diversity and the professional and personal development of leaders. AGL has witnessed a positive change in the leaders that participate in their programs. Many of these participants move into more senior leadership roles and continue to deliver significant benefits to the organisation.

Hi there, Soph here, I hope that you are managing to stay well in these challenging times of change, uncertainty and disruption. While we have all experienced some form of disruption, I strongly believe that we have all been going through different and unique experiences. For some of us the change has been minimal, while for others the change and stress has been extreme and incredibly confronting. This disruption to our ‘normal’ daily lives has required us to lean into empathy, to set boundaries and prioritise self-care. It has also required self-compassion when we have been unable to show up as the best…
It is with great passion that we celebrate International Women’s Day at Inkling. As an organisation dedicated to creating cultures where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive, we have built strong expertise in gender equity. I have personally been running women’s leadership development programs for seven years now and I’m incredibly proud to say that 50% of women who go through our leadership programs get a promotion, role change or significant stretch opportunity within six months of working with us. But progress doesn’t come without challenge. Despite the success that culture and leadership change initiatives like ours bring, they…
Hey there, With technology, flexible work arrangements and ever-changing workplaces, setting healthy boundaries at work and in our personal lives seems to have become more difficult than ever before. We’ve got our emails synced up to just about every handheld, desktop or wearable device we own, and we’re just one text or Slack notification away from being on call at a moment’s notice. We know that setting boundaries is an essential skill for leaders and teams to develop, and through our work with organisations around the globe, we have seen first-hand the positive outcomes associated with setting and honouring clear boundaries, including teams…
