About

Oren Leshetz (Founder & Principal)

Over the last 15 years, I have built a career in financial services working for large corporates such as National Australia Bank, Nissan Financial Services, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services and GE Capital to more recently heading up the sales function as part of the senior management team of a fintech start-up called Study Loans.

The majority of this time has been spent on the front line, assisting businesses with financial solutions in various sectors such as education, retail and allied healthcare to name a few. More often than not, many of these engagements have extended to help facilitate improvement in other areas within their businesses.

Through this collaborative process, I have witnessed business owners gain perspective, broaden their horizon and feel more empowered to make bold decisions when required. Being able to help clients tap into that deeper level of understanding of what is impacting their internal and external environment, has often been the catalyst to motivating them to be successful and choose the life they wish to live and on their own terms. Simply being part of this shift is what ultimately drives me.

In my earlier life, having competed at the highest levels in junior tennis in South Africa, to playing college tennis in Tennessee, USA, exposure to the power of performance coaching is not something new to me. These early experiences along with living in five different countries, a love of sports, food and travel and a general interest in the social sciences, have helped me gain broader perspectives and develop greater self-awareness, resilience and perseverance. All of this has served as an important toolkit throughout my professional career and has shaped my coaching practice.

Combining some of my key strengths such as integrity, reliability, curiosity and passion with having the unique vantage point of being able to assess business performance and risk, has effectively facilitated and provided the gateway to be able to offer powerful and life-changing business and performance coaching programmes to organisations and their staff.  

Formal qualifications that have supported my career development along the way include a Bachelor of Commerce (Economics) degree and a Postgraduate Diploma in Business (Administration). As part of my continuing professional development as a coach, I am currently in the process of completing a Graduate Certificate in Organisational Coaching at Swinburne University of Technology. This should provide clients with that extra reassurance that they are receiving the highest quality business advisory and coaching services supported by the latest evidence based tools and techniques.
