I really enjoyed working with Charlotte in what has been an incredibly tough year dealing with unforeseen challenges. The connection we had was very natural from the start!
Her thought processes to formulate ideas really helped. She has been a big support and wonderful to work with.

National Workplace Operations Manager Williams Lea

I’ve worked with Charlotte for the last 6 months with a focus on completing and stabilising my growing team, and building a positive, high performing culture in a complex, rapidly changing environment. I quickly realised that Charlotte is a fantastic person to have in your corner. She brings a wealth of experience and insight around business practice and leadership, and perhaps more importantly is easy and fun to work with. She really helps cut through the noise and establish clarity and realistic solutions to a business issue, whatever that may be. So far we have worked together on a whole range of areas, from self leadership and establishing accountability within teams through to running effective meetings – and will continue our journey this year. I highly recommend Charlotte as a business partner.

I engaged Charlotte to run a 12-month coaching program with one of my top consultants who shows leadership potential and wants to become a manager. Over the initial 6 months of the program, I have seen a level of maturity, self-awareness and self-regulation in this person that wasn’t present before. I believe this is largely due to the sound advice and skilful coaching of Charlotte, and I highly recommend her to business owners who need support developing their teams.

Charlotte combines exceptional management know-how with practical strategy. In 2018 we built on the early accountability infrastructure work Charlotte did for us, with individual one-on-one management development programs for key staff. Charlotte’s clarity and cut-through methodology always delivers value for investment. She is an integral part of our growth strategy.

Managing Director Balarinji and The Moriarty Foundation

We have worked with Charlotte for over four months and found her approach to facilitating desired change within our business highly valuable.

We are a business that is approximately 7 years old that had grown from 2 partners to a team of 17 people and we knew “what got us here won’t get us there”. Charlotte has been instrumental in helping us investigate and navigate through various issues by first acknowledging them and then taking initiatives to act on changes to enhance the way we all work together and facilitate resetting the business for future growth.

We intend on continuing to utilise Aide de MD services in the future.

While I am not a fan of testimonials (as I believe people write their own and ask people to agree to them), yes I’m cynical – I feel compelled to write a positive endorsement for Charlotte Rimmer, we’ve been working together for 6 months now and her calm nature has helped bring some focus for me. I was trying to do too much and getting advice from too many sources, then realised I only needed Charlotte. I look forward to an enduring partnership for a long time to come. Thank you Charlotte!!

Charlotte applies her expert business knowledge and vast corporate experience to assist organisations consider appropriate growth strategies to drive profitability. For us, Charlotte is a trusted and valued adviser in our business. Having worked together for almost a decade, Charlotte’s deep understanding of our business, its people and insights for its potential are exceptional. We particularly enjoy Charlotte’s consultative approach, her easy disposition and her capacity to keep the conversation aligned with our business strategy; ensuring things stay on track.
With these valuable insights into our business I chose Charlotte to Chair our advisory board where she leads a group of senior executives, all the while ensuring they drive the depth of critical thinking and problem solving required.
Charlotte’s presence is a key component to our success and we look forward to working with her as we continue to grow GFLD.

Before meeting Charlotte and working with her I thought having a business consultant would never work for me. How wrong could I have been? Charlotte and her amazing skills have put balance and structure around my business, and helped me move from a small “start-up” to a well structured company. I look forward to my monthly meeting as I know that I will be guided back on track (if I have lost my way in daily operations), and directed to work “on the business” as well as “in the business”. Charlotte is there to put things right and set goals and tasks to help me stay on track. I would recommend one session with Charlotte…it is a must for every business no matter how big or small you are…! I know that Derma Aesthetic’s growth has had so much to do with Charlotte’s leadership and guidance.

Managing Director Derma Aesthetics Pty Ltd

We engaged Charlotte Rimmer back in 2018 to help us understand where the business was currently at, and what steps we needed to take to get it to the next level. After working with Charlotte over the past twelve months, as the owner of the business, I now have a clear understanding of the business financials, an up to date business plan and detailed forecast to ensure we hit the targets and goals we have set out. Charlotte has also guided us through a restructure which resulted in a number of role and staff changes and due to this, we are now working more efficiently and effectively than ever before. Her ability to fit in with our team and work with all levels of the business is amazing and has really made her an ear to all staff, especially me. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
