Progress performance

We foster business leaders and senior executives with coaching, motivational presentations, group facilitation and business training

Originally launched in Sydney, in 1988, Progress Performance International is a business growth consultancy now based on the Gold Coast, Australia. Although Progress Performance International began as a consultancy, client demand soon saw the creation of our BEST Training Systems.

Our BEST (Business Essential Skills Training) systems are proven to improve professional people skills. With a range of some 35 programs, thousands of participants have grown their professional skills and behaviours with excellent results. All our programs are customised specifically for each client, to create bespoke agendas for listed companies, professional firms, small businesses and professional associations. Your people will grow, your productivity will increase, and your profits will leap. It works.
