Areas of Specialty

Lana is passionate about assisting Financial Planning practices meet their objectives by ensuring they “get things done”. She believes that to have a business plan is the first step but follow up and follow through is the key to ensure ongoing success is measured on a regular basis.

Lana’s experience in delivery and implementation of policy, procedure and risk management has achieved operational efficiencies at all levels across business. Her belief is that it is simple enough to write a checklist or process, but getting people engaged is what it is really about. This means people working together to find the best outcome for all involved.


Lana has worked with us for two years, first in assisting in putting together a flat fee pricing model and also as a knowledgeable strategic coach, who just seems to be across all the important aspects of running a successful advice business.

It has been indispensable working with Lana throughout the period of enormous regulatory change and the massive business transformation that we have successfully undertaken, would’ve been very difficult without her support and specialist knowledge.

Going through pricing in particular was one of the most enlightening experiences and I urge anyone has never undertaken a thorough exercise on it to do so with her, there is no better time than now and there is hardly a person more knowledgeable on this niche topic than Lana.

Financial Advisor and Director at Core Private Wealth Pty Limited

Lana has been my business coach for the last 12 months. She has been able to help coach me to become a better business owner and also given me the confidence to look at how I can improve, but also what I’m doing well. I highly recommend other Financial Planners and business owners speak to Lana.

Financial Planner, Bright Future Financial

It’s rare that you find a combination of technical know-how and empathy like Lana has.

I had the pleasure of working with Lana in her compliance role with Westpac in Sydney and more recently in her role as a business coach with Elixir Consulting.

I am always impressed by Lana’s ability to handle even the toughest clients effortlessly. Her ability to understand the technical and process driven requirements of a Financial Planners business often takes years to develop among good coaching professionals, but it seemed to come perfectly naturally to her.

Lana’s ability to connect and truly understand the human element is unlike any I’ve seen before and made a dramatic difference in the productivity level of my business.

Demanding as she was in her accountability, she always made sure everyone left with a smile.

Lana earns my strongest recommendation.
