Who is Helen Corban? Business Owner, Coach & Training Consultant - Reach Potential
I believe education is one of the keys to a successful life, along with a growth mindset and positive attitude. I come from a family who prioritised education, though when I initially went to university it was only because of the expectation. I ended up with a Bachelor of Arts in Education (and Psychology), which has been invaluable as I discovered early on that I love to teach, train, coach and mentor people.
My second love is Japan, having lived there for about 4.5 years in total. Japan represents a really special time in my life. I have friendships from my time there that span 35 years now. I still chat weekly with an ex-student to keep my language skills up. He is now in his 70’s. I studied at AUT for 2 years and completed an Advanced Diploma in Japanese. That study took the class to a ski resort in Japan for language study. We had a blast! I also trained time management in Tokyo in the Japanese language over a 2-year period, which was an amazing journey. I had my second baby in the middle of that contract. She came to Japan with me on one trip. Her first ever flight at 4 months was in seat 1A in first class. I was so lucky, she was a dream baby!
Later I was accredited as a Life Coach and recently as a Leadership Coach. My career has always been varied. I have an extensive background in coaching business professionals and delivering effective training to teams. I have been self-employed for over 20 years and have that entrepreneurial spirit with a passion to help businesses go the distance. I also have 15 years experience in training time management in corporates and SMEs. I am fascinated with business and my clients continue to inspire me with their ingenuity and their motivation to succeed. Helping them to achieve their key objectives gives real meaning to my life. That is my “why”.
