Testimonials

Hello Stranger,
How are you?
I wanted to share with you that my 15yo daughter has read your book ‘INNERWEALTH’ and is now making reference to it during our conversations. She is one inspiring, beautiful and deep individual and what she speaks blows my mind and gives me an inner smile & to you I say thank you.
With love,

My Daughter Gets Innerwealth

Invest in your innerwealth with Chris Walker you wont regret it, it will be the best investment of your life, trust me. You wander through your life from your teens, twenties and thirties, there seems so much to look forward to, career, marriage, the perfect house, holidays and then the kids. You then hit your forties and you begin to wonder what’s it all for and why am I on this hamster wheel.  About 18 month ago I looked in the mirror and asked is history going to repeat itself with my career, it was certainly was heading that way until my best mate encouraged me to have a chat with Chris.  After an hour discussion with Chris walking along the beach at Port Melbourne it was clear that he could help me not make the same mistakes I have made multiple times before.  Chris is like no other coach, career counsellor or mental health professional that I have engaged over the years to help work through the career challenges.  You very quickly realise that Chris doesn’t just work on one aspect of your life or development, he works on everything to ensure your balance all the competing priorities.  It’s a wild ride at the start as he challenges everything opinion, value and aspect of your life to ensure he can get you to your next level in your career, marriage, happiness, fatherhood, financial goals, health and more, it’s the entire package.  Given that Chris has a wealth of experience, made plenty of mistakes himself, has a deep knowledge of the human condition and over 40 years of coaching, keynote speaking and development of individuals he can quickly get you to the next level. If you want to improve yourself, wake up inspired every day of your life and fulfil all your dreams, give him a call, drop him an email and start something very special.  We often forget to invest in our most valuable asset, ourself, 18 months on I know where I’m heading and I have another lifetime ahead of me, it’s just the start of the second half, thanks very much Chris for building my innerwealth.

Thank you, Andrew.

NATIONAL OPERATIONS MANAGER

Chris, your work is more than just digging deep, it’s about taking control & driving the bus. It’s about clever use of time & resources to be absolutely present in each of the different pieces of the puzzle. I found your work with me to be about clearing a rolling fog that if allowed, will persist throughout the day/week/month/year. What I’ve achieved is an effective morning, combining the elements of healthy food, exercise and focus on the current task and making time for the big picture, all threaded together in a way that hits these pieces at full throttle. This approach brings the relief and release that comes with knowing you have had a solid, effective crack at something without the fog of distraction, without competing alternatives for any given minute or hour. Shift Happens and the Innerwealth Process is the best way of achieving it. 

Thank you always

Take Control and Drive the Bus

Two years ago I was at a work Christmas party and I mentioned to my boss how miserable I truly was. My husband was an abusive drunk and my young children were traumatised. I was trying to do a great job at work and we could not survive the mortgage on his salary. He took trips to brothels and I saw the charges on the joint credit card. He lost his wedding ring three times, hiding it while in bars and forgetting to put it back on before coming home. I was a mess.

My boss was being coached by Chris for none of these issues. She was seeing him for business growth and career guidance but generously and lovingly she gave me his number. It feels like yesterday. That night, and my boss’ generosity changed my life

I am now a happy, financially independent super woman, single mum, owner of my Appartment, and having the best life with minimal stress in a pandemic environment. So, thank you to my ex boss, Chris and the stars that aligned to change my life.

A Party that changed my Life

Typical of any accountant I would like life to occur in a linear fashion, unfortunately that is just not the case, and there are lots of ups and downs along the journey.  Given this, it is important to have an experienced guide to help you on that journey, especially when the fog created by my over active brain sets in.  

Similarly, as someone is used to operating at a senior level and with strong self-belief, you need someone with the strength of character to call you on your ‘bull dust’.  It is critical that you have someone who can as much challenge as support you and then provide a pathway towards improvement. 

Chris has been, and is, that life guide for me.  His wealth of life experience and insights (meaning he has already made all the same mistakes already) positions him ideally to fill this role.   He has been great in guiding me across the different areas in life and equipping me with the tools to succeed in life and tackle the challenges it throws up.

Cheers.

I’ve been seeing Chris every week for almost 3 years. He has helped me realise my true value, successfully navigate a career transition and secure a step-change in income. I’ve truly enjoyed his unique blend of support and challenge, which is always delivered in good humour. Working with Chris has lead to huge personal growth and has improved not only my career but my marriage and my family life. Chris has essentially given me an advanced self-leadership toolkit and has shed light on limited thinking and unproductive behaviours that have been holding me back. Thanks Chris. I hope more and more people can experience your amazing work.

Stephen Turner – SENIOR MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT

Chris has been my life line. I have been working with him for the past 5 years and has taken me through some really tough challenges and hurdles. From the day I have met him he has looked directly into my soul. Someone – or maybe the only one – who really understands me. And from this place he has worked on developing me. When I look back I can’t believe how much has changed. I have become so much happier, healthier, a better mum, a better friend, a better employee, a better human-being. His work resulted in me becoming more focussed and more grounded. I’m not gonna lie: the coaching can be tough, very tough. And it can come from a angle you never even considered. Sometimes I don’t want to talk to him because he puts pressure and focus on areas I don’t want to go. I get angry and can feel threatened. But I have come to experience that overcoming these barriers is exactly what you need in order to progress. And Chris can – like no other – highlight which barriers you have to overcome next…. 

He has taught me how to become more relaxed, enjoy life more, feel more connected to myself and the people around me. I’m so grateful for how he has helped me to increase the quality of my life.

Chris – to you –  unique spirit, beautiful soul, living angel, loving heart

Every day, I wake up and my first thoughts are – “thank god I’m alive! Thank you!!”

I carry on with a morning routine which Chris thought me, “The Walkachi” I make it my own and made it my own version, although the structure is always the same. It’s about learning how to set my intentions for the day ahead to be success, my success. It is such a easy process that even my kids seeing me doing it every day started embracing it themselves – in their own way.

Since I met Chris, I have learnt many new tools and turned them into habits I can sustain with minimum effort. I have become my own person and started growing my own garden of happiness, I even put a fence around it to protect it. it’s priceless, to see where I came from and what I’ve achieved since being coached by Chris, and what I’m living today. It is priceless, the joy I have today combined with the excitement of what’s next to come tomorrow. I can’t remember one morning where I didn’t smile with my heart wide open, with love and sparkles of joy going in and out to the world.

With patience, love, genius tools and an incredible commitment to open hearts, Chris taught me how to enjoy every step of my life, no matter what’s happening, no matter the events, good or bad, sport injury, divorce, work stress, parenting challenges, financial distress, Covid lockdown, you name it. Chris taught me how to see balance in every situation and be stress free while learning from those events and getting stronger and happier on the way.

Today, I am able to honestly say: thank you for making me realise that I’ve got the life I’ve always dreamed of… and that’s it as simple as being able to appreciate the form I’ve got it in.

Being coached taught me that there’s no limit to dreams and success and that challenges are real but just in a ‘can do’ bucket.

Today, I finish the day with more energy than I started it with. And that was high already.

Lucky to be coached!

Thank you Chris!

MELBOURNE CFO FINANCE

I first met Chris in June, 2015.  I was on the right side of 50, but not in a happy place and hoping my circumstances might change.

The first month with Chris was annoying and then amazing. My mindset changed and continues to realign with my focus along with better health and vastly improved balance.    

Chris is super generous with his time and support and he makes you feel you are the only client he has. He has an incredible gift to pin down what you might be missing and he will challenge you so will see how badly you want that change you asked for!

I’m so fortunate to have met Chris and will use his practices and keep him my life until the day I across the divide.
