LOCAL GIRL AND FORMER ST MARY’S STUDENT NAMED BY BRW AS ONE OF

AUSTRALIA’S FASTEST GROWING COMPANIES – AND SHE STILL CALLS

WOLLONGONG HOME!


Working is part of who Roberta Faddoul is – she has NEVER been without a job.  She washed cars

at 8, polished a neighbour’s silver at 10, asked for jobs in her local shops and got one at 11

working in a beachside kiosk at Wollongong Harbour and started her own company at 28.


And when she was ready to go it alone her family supported her all the way.


This woman has spunk.


Now her faith in herself has been rewarded – in just four short years she has made it to BRW’s

FASTEST GROWING COMPANY list – the YOUNGEST WOMAN TO DO SO, and now she is inspiring a

new generation of Australian Entrepreneurs to grab hold of their dreams and pursue them with

tenacity and drive.


“Traditionally NLP trainers charged in excess of $4,000 for the minimum NLP qualifications.  By

subsidizing our students and offering them low entry level training courses, we have built a strong

brand and a loyal following of NLP practitioners who keep coming back for their ongoing

professional development and training.”  Roberta says. “This has been the ‘secret’ to our success


NOT doing what the rest of the industry did as ‘standard’”



To qualify to enter BRW Fastest Growing Company awards, a company must submit four

years of financials – this is the total length of time Roberta’s business has been operating



In its first year her company turned over in excess of half a million dollars



In four years she has given away over $7.2 million worth of NLP training services – and in

doing so has turned the industry on its head.


Roberta says the key to fast growth is to ‘buck the system’ and not follow the norm.


“My father has been my greatest mentor and my biggest fan.  He totally understood my decision

to go it alone.  I have always had his support and that has encouraged me to follow my dreams

and go for it.  I knew I could do it.”  Explains Roberta 


Roberta’s company Quantum Change Seminars is an NLP training company which also runs events

and seminars for other people wanting to learn the ‘secret’ to FAST TRACKED success.
