Welcome to Next Act Coaching. It’s no secret that the creative industries are competitive. This is true whether you’re an artist / performer or working tirelessly behind the scenes. It’s hard work breaking in and once you’ve landed, it can be difficult (and stressful) staying there.

Tennis players have a coach, football players have a coach, swimmers have a coach, basketball players have a coach...I could go on, but you get the point. People across all walks of life are realising the power of coaching and the profound effect it can have on reaching short and long-term goals. Often people in the creative industries (and life generally) have brilliant ideas and intentions but can’t translate those plans into goals with structured action steps. 

My name is Viv and I’m a certified accredited coach.  I’ve been in and around the Australian music and creative community for a long time and in many different capacities. I’ve seen both the upside and the pitfalls of work in the creative industries and have experienced many of them myself. As a coach, I want to empower people to feel they can clarify, prioritise and action goals and feel energised (not burned out) by the process of making positive changes. Learn more about coaching
