The Road to Recovery for Small Businesses

Your Business Legacy

As a leader in your organization, you have the opportunity right now to make a difference – to ensure a positive return to work for your team members and for yourself. By investing in your capabilities in such uncertain times, you can help those around you rise up, learn, grow and re-build. Together, we can help you achieve this.

Your Current Challenges

You are likely managing competing demands and have clients & staff who are on various stages of the Road to Recovery. You yourself may be feeling overwhelmed, time poor and experiencing the challenges of meeting the various needs of your staff & clients. Add to this, the fact that everyone right now is feeling the pinch money-wise. It’s a challenging time but we are here to support you.

The KEASE you need

The Road to Recovery Queensland Small & Medium Enterprise Package (R2-QSME) has been designed to support leaders who are guiding their business through this transition period.

This is NOT a training package – this is a transformational learning space; a safe place for SME leaders to engage with on-demand coaching, with experts at your fingertips. We provide a learning environment which is responsive to changing needs, interactive, engaging and encourages exploration, where you are in control of your learning – the time, location and topics.

This program has three core elements:


Behaviour outcome based Micro learning modules that are practical NOT theory-based and available for self service


On-demand 1:1 coaching request & provision of group coaching and access to subject matter experts


Resource library of curated resources that include ready to use templates and guides

New Hope Group

We partnered with KEASE International about 3 years ago with an initial engagement to deliver our Frontline leadership program. 

We were very impressed with the high level of delivery of that program which inspired and engaged our supervisors that we quickly realised KEASE International had more to offer our business.   

Since that time, KEASE International consultants have facilitated workshops, undertaken one on one coaching with senior leaders, designed and delivered a bespoke senior leadership program as well as designed and coordinated a leadership event for our senior leaders.

KEASE International is now an integrated part of our organisation with an in-depth understanding of what we do and how we do it along with an appreciation for where we are on our journey and what we are aspiring to achieve. 

They bring latest thinking to collaborate and design targeted and bespoke programs which deliver measurable results for our business.  Along with that expertise they also bring energy and passion and the ability to relate to all levels of leadership.

Chelsea Akers

Brisbane Marketing

As the People & Culture Manager at Brisbane Marketing; I have been working with Sarah Yip from KEASE International since November 2018 on a range of leadership and culture programs within our organisation.

Sarah is an extremely professional and exceptionally knowledgeable consultant who is well skilled at advising and guiding senior leaders on tackling complex and challenging business problems, from strategic leadership through to culture development and business coaching.

Since joining our team as a preferred consultant, Sarah has continued to wow the leadership team. After our first leadership team off-site in November, which Sarah facilitated, the feedback from across the leadership group was overwhelming, with comments such as: “Sarah is by far the best consultant we’ve ever worked with”, “Sarah was amazing at getting to the crux of the problem and helping us to workshop it”.

Since then, Sarah has continued to support us and has again facilitated another leadership event this year, which again got rave reviews from the team but, importantly we were for the first time really discussing the important issues, which was all down to Sarah’s involvement in the pre-work, agenda and then the delivery of the two and a half day session.

Sarah is able to effectively balance the delicate nature of challenging senior leaders to get them to think and act very differently when they return to the workplace. This is an extraordinary skill that is not to be underestimated.

As a People & Culture Manager in a stand-alone HRM position it’s very hard at times to work through some of the complex issues and problems that all organisations face from a people perspective. Since November, Sarah has become a trusted advisor for me in many ways, she has a way of breaking down the issues and workshopping them through and provides wise counsel of which we (and I) have hugely benefited from.

Overall, Sarah has had a huge impact on our business and we’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with Sarah and KEASE International in to the future.

Elixir Management

As a provider we aim to offer continuous growth and development in our company through various training methods. Sourcing a training facilitator to cater for the different levels of capacity within the industry is extremely challenging. Five years ago, I attended a training session with Sarah Yip who not only inspired but challenged me through her session, five years later, I continue to use her vast array of training and services in every company I have worked for. Each business requiring different outcomes from each session.

A great testament to Sarah is her ability to listen to a small briefing (I don’t have a lot of time) of what we are looking for in each individual training session and tailor it in alignment with out companies’ vision and values, this immensely supports us as a company to eliminate any mixed messages on expectations.

At each of our training sessions we offer a feedback form and every session we are requested by employees for her to attend again. She greets the team with a warm and welcoming energy and connects with each individual ensuring that everyone gets the most out of her sessions.

Her interpersonal skills, knowledge, professionalism and humour merge to keep you captivated anywhere from a few hours to a whole day session. While being very observant of the team, she will often support anyone who might be challenged through the session ensuring that everyone is feeling confident and full of knowledge prior to leaving each session.

I would highly recommend Sarah to any company or individual seeking growth and development for their teams.

Peabody Energy

I attended a leadership program facilitated by Sarah Yip of KEASE International because my career path was starting to include leadership aspects that weren’t covered in my technical qualifications.

Sarah helped me by coaching me over the course of 12 months in the fundamental skills of leadership that I needed to take the next step in my career. She helped fill in the gaps of knowledge I did have around making people and processes, corrected a few misconceptions along the way and gave me a framework that I could use to see the bigger picture.

The result was that I was able to immediately apply the concepts covered with the confidence to get results. Within a year I was successful in an application for a Senior position and am now the leader of a talented and diverse team working across multiple sites. My daily work involves stakeholder engagement, expectations management, budgeting, project management, work scoping, performance management, pitching ideas and mentoring of the team.

Sarah was able to create a safe and encouraging space for a very diverse group to contribute in ways that they wouldn’t normally feel comfortable. She was also able to very quickly understand the group dynamic and the needs of the individuals in the group and expertly tailored her delivery of the material to suit the audience.

I found the experience extremely rewarding as it highlighted my skill areas that needed work and provided me the tools to work with these challenges to overcome them.

I would recommend Sarah Yip of KEASE International to people whose career is moving forward and want to be able to proficiently lead a technical team in this ever changing business world.
