I have been part of his online workshop where he trained business owners about branding and the importance of this as a business owner. He provided so much value and an opportunity to think creatively about my business and how to ensure I am attracting my ideal client. His work is extremely complimentary to mine where I work with entrepreneurs on creating a high impact personal brand from a style perspective. I continue to follow Federico as he interviews some inspiring people about their entrepreneurial journey."

"I recently had the great pleasure to be interviewed by Federico and his colleague Stuart Harris on their Inspire Talk radio show and was impressed with their preparation process but in particular the in-depth questions they asked. 

Federico showed a keen interest in the subject and asked specific questions that allowed me to give the audience great value. 

It is immediately clear when engaging with Federico that he is passionate about entrepreneurship and searching for innovation and growth strategies that can not only be applied to his listening audience's businesses but his own as well"

"From the first contact with Federico Re on LinkedIn, I knew this must be a successful person. It shone through every professional point of contact. Federico invited me to appear on their ‘Inspire Talk’ Radio Show after I commented on one of his LinkedIn posts. His reminders were always professional and friendly and had clear action steps. A sound and video quality test a week ahead of our show assured me that they prepare as best they can for every eventuality. 

I found Federico welcoming and relaxed and [he] put me completely at ease about the possibility of technology glitches. [He] created a warm atmosphere for a candid, natural conversation. 

A great experience and I’d highly recommend working with [him] if you have the opportunity"

Federico is the ultimate professional. A calm, patient and considered approach allows Federico to read the situation at hand incredibly well, before asking a powerful question and or making an equally powerful recommendation. It was for this reason that we decided to bring Federico on as an Entrepreneurship Coach for our various students and graduates, to assist them in being the best they can be. Beyond this, Federico has demonstrated his commitment to being a true ally to any business, consistently suggesting ideas and proactively creating opportunities for business growth."

His own background as a successful entrepreneur enables him to understand and address issues from a very different angle. He has a unique ability to help and guide you to a point of self-realisation, which provides a much stronger impact when you yourself recognise the real issue, possible solution and/or way forward. Federico has certainly helped me become a better leader."

"Federico Re has been a huge wake-up call and guiding light for my business. Filmmaking isn’t exactly learned from a textbook and Federico’s direction has greatly helped me pursue my dream with a sustainable, profitable momentum. The greatest gift he gives is the framework for the right mindset. 'Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime'. Federico digs deeper, flexing his analytical prowess with a calm, collected consistency. He is adaptive and innovative in his methods for bringing out the best in others. I have never felt as confident and reassured about the plight of by business model until I began working with him. Federico’s down-to-earth people skills, combined with his own proven business successes are just testimony to his level of perseverance and determination which one can’t help but aspire to."

I have spoken to two friends of mine who are on the NEIS program with another provider and they cannot believe what you do for participants, as their provider leaves a lot to be desired.

I have and will continue to recommend Mission Australia to appropriate people."
