About Us

The Forte team have 30 years combined experience in Facilitation, Capability, Coaching and Leadership. With extensive experience in Education and the Corporate world coupled with the knowledge of the evolving work environment.

Why we do it

Forte was born out of the passion for education and personal development that its co-founders Claire and Toni shared. Frustrated that young people were leaving school lacking basic human skills such as communication, critical thinking and collaboration they set about trying to find a solution. Along the way they discovered that it wasn’t just young people but adults too that were in desperate need of personal development to help them adapt to this emerging uncertain world of work.


So in a bid to meet the pleas of business leaders around the world they created a range of programs to develop human skills that are critical for individual and organisation success.  


With a vision to empower people to create a purposeful and meaningful future, Forte sets out to help everyone to live their best lives. We achieve this by helping you to: 


  1. Develop a strong self-concept and defined core values

  2. Identify your purpose and align it with your future ambition

  3. Develop the crucial transferable skills you need to confidently navigate this changing work climate
