Commercial Director ANZ at Krispy Kreme
I've been incredibly fortunate to be coached by Murray for the past few years.
Murray is able to draw upon both his intellectual study and professional experience of leadership to coach with authenticity and empathy. Murray is engaging and personable, he's thoughtful and productive during (and outside of) sessions - he steadily built his understanding and always seems to stay curious of me, although always discussing with candor, never preaches, assumes or judges.
I've made great improvements across personal and professional relationships thanks to Murray's insights. He's provided me the thoughts, tools and frameworks that not just build my leadership skills, but enable me to be congniscant for myself - to be my own coach.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Murray to anyone who wants to truly unpack themselves and unlock their potential.
Coming into my session today I was seeking a solution to manage my challenging work environment. Coming out of the session with Murray, I got so much more than what I was expecting. I got clarity, confidence and new mindset which has removed all roadblocks and opened up new opportunities. Murray challenged my thinking to dig deeper and explore the situation from all angles which gives a total new perspective and different level of appreciation.

I first met Murray at the inaugural Grocery Academy course in Sydney 2017. We completed a 3 day training with him on Leadership and Resilience. I had no concerns in seeking Murray to assist further with coaching on a one to one level based on the time we had at the GA course and his approach to coaching and development . I found it to be challenging, refreshing and worked through in a positive manner, with encouragement and thoughtfulness. And a few laughs along the way.
I have not hesitation recommending Murray to anyone seeking to be a better person either in their professional or personal life. His manner to get the best out of me and the ability to make people open up and recognise the opportunities for them. Putting them into practice along the way and seeing the gains personally and in the work environment helped immensely.

I was lucky enough to meet Murray over a year ago through a work coaching program. Murray took time to get to know me and my goals so each session was personalised to suit me which lead to highly productive discussions. I was in a position where I knew I wanted to push my career further but didn’t know how. Murray has a vast range of resources, perspectives and life experiences which I was really able to engage with. He has a warmth and genuine interest in you which meant rapport built quickly and made the tough conversations easier. I always look forward to every conversation with Murray and leave feeling inspired and energised.
Sustainable business models and strategic planning
Murray coached me during a period of significant personal and professional change - new job and a new baby. His ability to engage with warmth helped us build rapport very quickly, impressive as we were working using teleconference. He has a deep toolbox of frameworks, stories and perspectives that helped me to reflect and challenge my thinking and behaviour in a way which was robust, but not uncomfortable. Thank you Murray, I've come out the other side of the turbulence with confidence, new personal insights and tools to help me on my development journey. I'd also recommend Murray's podcast to anyone looking for interesting perspectives from leaders and some really good questions for meaningful dialogue with teams and clients.

I was unsure about working with Murray on the Team Development Program as we hadn’t met previously at all but my first impression was very positive. He had a clear understanding of our objectives and challenges. Murray’s confidence displayed that he had the expertise and tools to assist us. He was very engaging and knowledgeable.
I chose Murray Wright because of the confidence that he projected and communicated to be able to deliver results we needed.
The benefits since using Murray Wright are that we are now a much more cohesive, honest and connected team dynamic (from one that was previously fractured and somewhat counterproductive…) and we have increased business performance and engagement.
I would definitely recommend the Team Development Program with Murray Wright due to the results achieved. Recommending Murray is a very clear and comfortable recommendation to make.
Real World Marketing
Murray had a huge impact in our business, working with our team of consultants to really align on our purpose, our values, how we engage and work together and what needs to change in what we do and how we do it to get to where we want to get too. Murray has tremendous emotional intelligence and facilitation skills, coupled with a systemic approach that looks at the totality of the business and teams experience to really get to the heart of what is holding you back and what will take you forward. Murray also coached all of our consultants, many of whom are very experienced and the feedback from the team was overwhelmingly positive. Thanks for your support Murray.

After we had met initially I was confident that Murray would be able to provide me with the coaching I required to help me address the many challenges my company faced.
It was a combination of Murray’s business and work experience, and his personality, which led me to believe he could assist me to better confront the difficult issues that lay ahead.
I’ve learnt to be more confident in my own abilities, and to make sure I apply my skills on a more consistent basis. It has been useful to see where my strengths and particularly my weaknesses lie, so I can work on improving in specific areas of performance.
Murray is an excellent coach, as his main priority is you the person, but at the same time he is able to advise you within the context of the job you are doing. He does not need to know the ins and outs of the business, but he is able to quickly analyse and appreciate the particular problem or dilemma which you are putting to him, and then guide you to your own conclusion about a solution

I recently had the pleasure to be coached by Murray Wright for my career development and improved leadership capabilities. I am a Kamilaroi man employed by NSW TrainLink in a management position. I am also very active within community and sit on a number of Aboriginal committees including TfNSW Aboriginal Reference Group. The time I spent with Murray opened my eyes to new strategies and techniques that I now use on a daily basis. It has given me a new focus and self-reliance to face the demands of a leader today. The coaching was also an opportunity to reflect and redirect my priorities for a better work-life balance. Murray understands the importance and challenge of ‘walking in two worlds’. As I walk in the world of my corporate role and I walk in the world of my own cultural identity. His insights to use the strength from both have given me inner strength and confidence.
I feel honoured and very fortunate to have been coached by Murray and believe his knowledge, understanding and drive to inspire others will help leaders to reach their full potential.

I nominated Murray as my preferred coach as part of an executive coaching offering through the NSW Public Service Commission. My sessions with Murray exceeded my expectations. Murray was able to help me find the root of an issue that has plagued me for all of my career. Managing my amygdala has always been a challenge, with Murray's assistance I was able to turn around my approach completely and have used this for every high stakes engagement since. I'm finally present and engaged at the level I've always sought.
