How can we help you?

LET’S CHAT!
  • We all agree that small choices can make a big impact; this is especially true in enhancing people's wellbeing. Team McQuaid helped bring to life and further develop our habit change program called Build Your Ideal day using the strength based appreciative inquiry approach. The program has been well received in Australia and internationally and the level of positive impact would not have been achieved without the insights provided by Michelle.
