"David is well trained, educated, and experienced. Displaying grace and ability. He leads a balanced life - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and relationally. This makes him a great Life Coach because it's not just theory he shares, he also displays it in his personal life congruent with his convictions.” Joanne         

Dr Katie Cohen - DirectorKatie

Katie heads up LINK Learning’s academic arm, with particular research in emotional intelligence, work-life balance, managing priorities, stress and resilience, ethics and values in the workplace, and improving workplace communication.

Katie’s primary scientific interest is Zoology; however, in recent times she has broadened her research to include a number of relevant Behavioural Science issues relating to the corporate sector and the Australian Public Service. 


"Katie is a deeply caring professional, who has a very special gift of being able to take her clients on a stringent development journey, whilst we enjoy her warmth and friendship. I have learned so much from Katie: she is extremely intelligent, yet amazingly humble. I trust and rely on her judgment in many areas of my work. In fact, my business would not be where it is today if it hadn't been for Katie's input.”  Alison
