Working With You To Create Outstanding Leaders & Outstanding People In Order To Achieve Outstanding Results
The name, “Foundation Road” is derived from the Australian term Formation Road, which means an unsealed, high-mounded road correctly graded with a ditch on either side of the road and you drive on one side of the mound. They are made this way because of wet weather – they allow the water to drain off and not be pooled on the road. The height of the mound prevents the vehicle from being driven down the middle of the road as straddling the mound could damage the sump.
The use of the term ‘foundation’ instead of formation is that any workshops delivered by Foundation Road form a solid foundation from which to go forward. Foundation insinuates the underpinning structure that supports a building – often unseen. It is the starting point, the beginning, the core and the motivation behind future progress.
And, as any foundation should be, this is all built on solid ground, well founded and to the depth required upon which the building is constructed for decades to come.
Our Aim is to produce and deliver the highest quality and significantly relevant leadership, business and individual development programs all of which are targeted to making a real long-term impact, specifically tailored to your organisations needs, by utilising the best delivery platforms needed in order to make the greatest difference to the greatest number of people in the time available and in a manner that represents our values of respect, integrity, trust, honesty, tolerance, dignity and philanthropy.
This approach ensures we always ask the question: “Is what we are doing, what we are presenting, how we are delivering the things we do consistent with this belief and definition?”
Foundation Road Provides workshops and coaching services that focus on the four elements of leader, leadership, organisational and individual strategically aligned development.
Only workshop facilitators and coaches of the highest professional standards and knowledge, capable of delivering in a way that is engaging and encourages interactive learning, will be engaged by Foundation Road.

What People Have Said About Us
Kevin Norton: Nurturing Nortons
Colin has many special gifts as a person and trainer. His exceptional people skills combine neatly with his communication ability. Like all very gifted people, he makes it all look so easy but I also know he researches and prepares so professionally and thoroughly. I recommend him for any training relating to business, leadership or communication.
Wally K: WHS Consultancy
Very passionate in whatever he does, A proven leader and brilliant communicator. A person I have no hesitation in recommending as a key note speaker.
Thea B. Department of Education. WA.
This course has provided a clearer understanding of decision making in the leadership role. I now have a greater understanding of how to use values to meet the needs of my organisation.
Renee C. ACT Government.
This course was incredibly informative, balanced and easy to understand for both experienced and emerging leaders. It’s also a lot of fun and offers real world solutions to everyday issues facing teams.
Bruce H. Banking and Finance. ACT
‘Colin measures his personal success by the results that his team achieves. As a true leader he ‘Knows the Way, Shows the Way and Goes the Way’.
Justin W. ACT Government.
Although not primarily a decision maker myself, I found the course equipped me with the tangible skills to persuade and influence the ultimate decision makers. An entertaining delivery of the content with excellent case studies to illustrate key concepts.
Neil S: Retail Manager
I’ve been coached by Colin for a few years now and find his approach and energy to be enlightening. I regularly find myself having “aha moments” when Colin explains a theory behind a concept. Colin has a unique talent to convey complex ideas in a way that is understandable and relatable in almost any setting.
Colin has (what I like to refer to as) a “teach a man to fish” style. He will often approach a concept and gives just the right amount of information for you to connect the dots and develop a strong idea around it. This has allowed me to use the information presented in my own way.
I have been able to take the concepts explored and not just theorise them but, with Colin’s guidance, have been able to implement them into my day-to-day business; helping to develop a stronger culture in the business, consult with my team to implement new creative ideas, use ideas discussed with Colin to set strategic goals and convey initiatives to my team.
With direction from Colin, I have been able to take the best practice learnings and make them a reality, resulting in a stronger team environment and focused business objectives.
RB. Real Estate Agency. NSW
‘One of the most effective leadership tools I’ve witnessed is Colin using that of empowerment. He provides his team with the resources required for them to achieve their goals and allows them to get on with their tasks unfettered.
Lindsay B. Directorate Manager ACT Government.
I would strongly recommend the ‘Decisive Leadership’ training course to any Public Service Agency that requires an effective, informative and relevant appreciation of decisive leadership within the context of the Australian Public Service.
The information and advice that was presented was based on real work experiences associated with leadership. This has resulted in my ability to apply decisive leadership on practical, rather than theoretical concepts.
