Aide de MD


I am lucky to have worked with Charlotte on several occasions over the past few years so when I was looking for specific training for my team Charlotte was the first person I called.

The Management Immersion Program was just what we needed. Our team were newly formed, a mix of some who had been in the organisation for many years and others who were new in the last twelve months and our disability service organisation was undergoing significant change.

The topics were highly relevant and with Charlotte tailoring the content to our organisation and specific scenarios, the team were able to apply the learnings in the real world and as a group.

Charlotte kept us all accountable throughout the program and beyond. Even better, our team keep each other accountable as well!

Over the past two years, Charlotte and her team have been an invaluable asset to our global management team, supporting us in various capacities.

Charlotte has been working closely with our director-level senior managers, providing one-to-one coaching that has significantly contributed to the teams’ professional growth. Through her expertise and guidance, our team has developed a deeper understanding of our leadership styles and honed our conflict management and decision-making skills. As a result, we have become more effective and confident as a management team.

In addition, Charlotte and her team has played a crucial role in facilitating training programs for our emerging managers. Her well-crafted sessions have equipped our team members with the necessary tools and knowledge to perform as managers. The positive feedback we have received from participants, and the effectiveness of these new managers speaks volumes about the impact of Aide de MDs training programs.

Throughout our engagement, Charlotte has consistently demonstrated flexibility, support, and thoroughness. She has been readily available to listen to our concerns and provide thoughtful guidance, even amidst our demanding global schedules. Her commitment to gaining a deep understanding of our organization’s context has allowed her to tailor her coaching and training interventions to our specific needs, resulting in tangible and sustainable results.

Charlotte took the time to really understand our business and tailor the workshops to the individuals participating, and to the business requirements.

Charlotte’s advice and guidance, balanced with skilful facilitation, allowed our team to address a range of unsurfaced issues and remain collectively focussed on the outcomes for the business and the team.

Charlotte ensures participation by all participants, and brings together the total value of the collective wisdom in the room.

Charlotte’s impact on our business and our business leaders was extremely positive; people left the session empowered, enthused and encouraged.

Charlotte and the team at Aide de MD have had a significant impact on the leadership of Royal Far West, a children’s charity serving the health needs of country kids. I have been working with Charlotte for the last few years and I have built a trusted relationship with her. She is a great asset to me and someone I would now call a friend. She has helped me problem solve, reframe issues, and supported my strategic thinking through a time of great change inside and outside the organisation. Her advice is so practical, I often come away from meetings with Charlotte and can instantly put something in place to improve mine and my team’s performance.

Recently we held an executive professional development workshop that has elevated the whole leadership team because of her solid preparation and responsive facilitation. She is not afraid to call out the hard stuff but in the most constructive way. Working with Charlotte is a very smart investment for any organisation as she makes a meaningful and measurable contribution. I hope to be working with Charlotte and her team long into the future.

I find the clarity of Charlotte’s thinking practical and refreshing.

We recently engaged Charlotte to facilitate a half day strategy session with The NonProfit Alliance senior team of consultants. We had a talented and enthusiastic group at the table, but we also had limited time and the desire to strategise on new business initiatives.

Charlotte’s approach was well thought through – including pre and post workshop meetings – and targeted to maximise the commitment and accountability of the team. The clarity of thinking will help NPA to focus on exciting business development opportunities, whilst managing the ongoing uncertainty of the post Covid business world and economic downturn.

CEO The NonProfit Alliance (NPA)

Thank you for your time over the last couple of months and the invaluable lessons that you have imparted through the program. I have really learnt a lot and have already used a number of the tools that I have learnt with you to reframe my thinking – with positive results!

Account Manager, Arts Balarinji

As we had new Directors appointed to our Board during the Covid disruptions, it was a timely workshop to bring new and old Directors together.

Charlotte had thoughtfully canvassed the matters Directors wanted to discuss prior to our meeting. This meant that we got to the heart of them quickly allowing for focussed discussions and the exploration of a variety of strategies in Board dynamics and decision making.

Charlotte created an atmosphere that encouraged engagement by all and enabled real and challenging issues to be discussed. This led to the following up of actions and further discussions by Directors to guide continuing improvement in decision making practices and policy development.

We agreed that in a suitable time we would have another Workshop with Aide de MD.

NSW Rural Doctors Network is pleased to recommend Charlotte Rimmer and Aide de MD. With support of the Board and within a strong strategic construct, our organisation has benefited from targeted executive coaching from Charlotte. In addition to continuing the development of our individual technical skills, we have committed to building a strong values-based Executive team which operates with emotional intelligence and in partnership for best outcomes of our staff and the communities we serve. Charlotte’s ability to embed appropriate accountability across individual coaching and within the strategic planning sessions is a real strength of her approach. She has also supported quarterly strategic off-sites, mentoring and our director recruitment process.

Charlotte has been a mentor, sounding board and voice of reason for me while I have grown my business over the past 18 months. Charlotte has allowed me to prioritise managing the team and putting people first, which has resulted in not only a thriving workplace but a growing client portfolio due to productivity. Her advice is both practical and motivating, and acts as a constant voice of reason during challenging moments. As a young female business owner, investing in Charlotte’s time has been invaluable and has allowed me to be in control every step of the way.
