Master Certificate in Business Success

Enrolling now

Live five-week online course accessible around the globe

Every Tuesday lunchtime from 13 February to Tuesday 13 March, 2018 

The first and last week are 1.5 hours and the weeks in between are 1 hour.  All participants will have three one on one sessions with Mary Anne.  Each session is recorded and you will receive an audio and video file and templates after each session.

Training and mentoring at its flexible best delivered by an industry legend


Students will focus on unblocking the obstacles to success and cover vital information ranging from the innovative Believing Forward Budget to the importance of vision, intent, networking, producing the perfect event, collaborating, deal-making and much more. Almost 40 templates and dozens of categories of tips will be included so students can apply their knowledge immediately and in a highly structured way.

The course includes a Business Success Tool Kit.  The Took kit has 23 Templates that include draft agreements, Human Resource Management templates, Event management templates and Public Relations and Media templates that most business units need.  Businesses send thousands of dollars on consultants each year.   Consultants can charge more than $1,000 to prepare any one of these templates.  The kit normally priced at $950 is FREE as part of the course.  

The Master of Business Success Tool Kit is not intended to replace lawyers, Human Relations, Public Relations or Event Management Specialists; however, they have been prepared by Specialists to help propel you and your business forward.

Each person on the program has the opportunity to choose their own Homework e.g. you could present to me an overview of an on-line training program via zoom which I can show you how to use as a homework idea.  Every participant gets three one-on-one hour sessions in addition to the 5-day course.  

 Some of the ideas for homework to be delivered to me after the course so you get a certificate could be:

  • submit a 90 work day plan, 
  • submit a 2 page business plan
  • Submit a believing forward budget 
  • Deliver an online training program to me via zoom (under an hour)
  • write a press release
  • Deliver a plan for  a launch/event
  • Write a staff policy and procedures manual
  • Present a talk you plan to give to an organisation to me via zoom (this could be a training program with brochure)
  • write a contract between you and another organisation
  • Design your own homework and deliver it to me depending on your organisations need


Experience: Mary Anne Waldren distills three decades of award-winning business experience into this program, which is tailor-made for the specific needs of each student.

Flexibility: She provides each participant with three valuable one-on-one sessions with her - before, during and after the course. You can download lectures and accompanying templates from any of the five modules at times that suit you, complete the program live, or mix learning modes.

Quality: A massive 95 per cent of those trained by Mary Anne Waldren report being very satisfied with their training.

I would highly recommend the Master Certificate in Business Success led by the inspirational Mary-Anne Waldren. The delivery and interactive style of the course added to the learning experience as we were able not only draw from Mary-Anne’s knowledge and experiences, but also fellow students. A great injection of knowledge and wisdom to push me forward.
