Thank you, Wendy, for your support and leadership.


I've been working together with Wendy now for nearly a year and in that time her help has been invaluable! She is a powerhouse and very knowledgeable about all aspects of business and just gets things done in lightning speed because the depth and breadth of her experience and knowledge is amazing.

She also has such good contacts and has helped me out in this way many times and I'm always amazed at the people she puts me in contact with.  I consider Wendy a very ethical and hard working professional.

I feel in very safe in her hands and totally supported by her services.  She is also a lovely, calm, objective and considerable person.


I lived in and travelled to many countries, met and worked with thousands of people...

never have a I met a more influential and instrumental person that changes people's lives to the better, facilities education to SMEs and business managers, connects people and makes the world a smaller more productive place, as much as Wendy Perry - hands down!

I have a lot of respect for her non-stop efforts, genuine good intentions, results and positive efficiency.


Wendy from Switch Start Scale is the most incredible coach I have ever worked with.

She is hard working and genuinely wants to help you build and grow your business. She is a powerhouse of business knowledge and her support always goes above and beyond.

Nothing is too much trouble and she always makes time for us when we need it. She assists with navigating trickier business decisions, helps direct us to support where it is needed. She has many excellent connections that have helped build our business profile.

I have worked with Wendy and Scott throughout 2020 and the support and training has helped us stay strong and resilient in trickier times.

Thank you so much Wendy, I want you to know how very grateful we are for you and all that you do for us at Tipi Lane.


Wendy Perry has been very helpful and a great mentor for myself whilst participating in the 9 month Switch Start Scale Program.
She's always enthusiastic and full of great ideas.

Before I did this, I found it very lonely at times being a sole-trader. This year I have had regular meetings with Wendy to keep me on track... as well her networking events and webinars which have given me lots of great new business contacts in Adelaide.

Thank you Wendy!


Wendy is a totally dedicated business owner who has assisted in teaching us so much over the 9 month journey and thru Covid.

Wendy was always dedicated to producing Zoom meetings that were beneficial to us all in a fun and productive/interactive way.

We thoroughly recommend Wendy and Switch Start Scale to anyone wanting to increase their business knowledge and network with a fabulous facilitator and all the wonderful participants.


I have had the pleasure of working with Wendy Perry and have gained so much value from her passionate approach, amazing ideas, connections and overall brilliance!

Brett and I want to say thanks to Wendy and to Switch Start Scale. Wendy has been more than instrumental in getting us as a new startup on our feet and running.

Wendy impressed (and kind of and me) from day 1 with her efficiency, ability to get things done an lay out a clear strategy which is now taking us rom strength to strength and joy to joy. There's not a day we don't get up and feel so blessed to be doing what we're doing, much gratitude goes to Wendy for helping us shine in the clarity, step over the hurdles, see, seek and reach new horizons.

Thank you Wendy and team.

Entrepreneurial thinking is about recognising opportunities in the marketplace and understanding how and when to capitalise on them.  Becoming an entrepreneur is not necessarily an inherent trait.  It takes time to train yourself to use your talents and experience to see opportunities where others do not.

You might have a startup or side hustle, be self-employed or a sub-contractor, run a small business, be scaling up or seen as a standout business.

​If you are interested in free business and startup support, coaching and mentoring, collaborating on events and networks, providing or gaining intros, offering products and services, programs and workshops with further info on the services available here.
