Find out what clients have to say about Margaret Walsh Consulting
We just wanted to let you know how fantastic your training was last Monday. We have had nothing but positive feedback form all the girls who attended. They feel more knowledgeable and confident and thoroughly enjoyed learning.
Yvonne de Faria – About Face Trainer
Margaret, thank you so much. You were a pleasure to have both professionally and personally. Simone and I loved the fact that we could rely on your expertise to run a corporate strategy day that would involve all team members, and engage everyone’s expertise. We have such a talented bunch – absolutely every individual brings so much expertise in every different dimension and your ability to draw on this was exceptional. Not only did you add a fun component, your ‘coaching’ nature is a concept we value. You truly enjoy what you do and this shines through. We know our team all enjoy what they do too, and together I think we have created something very special. Look out world!

Thank you for supporting and encouraging me in my return to full-time study to complete my degree. It has been an honour to have worked for you. You are one of the people who trained when beauty therapy was first introduced to New Zealand and throughout your time as an outstanding beauty therapist and owner/ manager of various clinics you have continually up skilled and increased your experience and knowledge of specialised treatments, and recent discoveries within the beauty therapy world. You have then imparted your knowledge onto your staff and encouraged them to also share with the team their own talents and areas of interest and experience. Your care and managerial technique brings out the best in those you employ and installs a greater confidence and realisation of what they personally have to offer the industry.
It is rare to have a manager who is not only trained within the beauty therapy industry but also a great teacher who is incredibly talented and passionate about encouraging staff to continually increase their skills and better themselves. Not only are you supportive of ongoing training but you also encourage the utilisation of various talents that both you and your team of therapists, hairdressers and receptionist have to offer. I really appreciate all the time and training you have given me, and I have learnt a lot both professionally and personally during my time of working for you.
Thank you for all the opportunities you have given me during the four years that I have been a beauty therapist at Face and Body. I have enjoyed working for you and being part of such an incredible team.
Margaret, I wish you every success for the future. You are an exceptional lady whose talents and abilities will give distinction to any endeavours you undertake.

Regarding your feedback for your FANTASTIC leadership course, where do I start!
This was an absolutely amazing course, I would recommend it to anyone and have told anyone that will listen all about it. I gained so much knowledge and skills that I will surely be putting to good use (and already have!). I left Nelson so motivated and inspired, you are truly one inspirational woman! I look forward to seeing you in the near future.
– Nicole, Belle Visage Beauty Therapy
Penni and I would like to say a very big thank you for your contribution at our conference. Given your time to prepare and to deliver such a full presentation was most appreciated. We received excellent feedback – in particular, you were identified in our feedback forms as being of most value to a number of delegates.
– Debbie Barron, Waikato School of Hairdressing Ltd
Margaret, I know that Coleen has already been in contact with you and thanked you for the fabulous job you did on Sunday but I also wanted to personally thank you, the day went off without a hitch and every person I spoke to had a fabulous day. So again a huge thank you, you were a pleasure to deal with and the New Zealand Beauty Association is very lucky to have you on their team!
– Sue Hannell, The Australian Beauty Therapist Magazine
On behalf of the AABTh I would like to say thank you for the fantastic day on Sunday 10th April. We have received some fantastic feedback, some salon owners who said it was a day well worth spent. On behalf of myself and Sue, a big thank you for your time and understanding leading up to the event.
– Coleen Shaw, Executive Officer, Advanced Association of Beauty Therapists
I very much appreciate the valuable input I received from you regarding my business.
It was clear to me that your suggestions came from a wealth of business and personal experience rather than the standard textbook information some mentors provide. Also, thanks for being a good listener and allowing me to bounce my ideas as well as receive your suggestions and opinions. I recommend your service to anyone wanting professional advice regarding their business.
– Namiko, small business owner, neuromuscular and massage therapist
Having owned my beauty therapy clinic for just over two years, I decided it was time for me to get in a business consultant. My business was plodding along, but I decided that I wanted to start 2008 with more systems and organisation in my business. Margaret came to visit me in my clinic and we discussed where I wanted to go with my business and what I felt I needed help with. We didn’t just talk business, we discussed other commitments and priorities in my life, because it is necessary to have a balance – which is something that Margaret understands. We went right back to basics which was fantastic! I have now got systems and records in place that I wish I had implemented at the very beginning. Everything she taught me made absolute sense and I am already seeing results with the changes I have made. I highly recommend her to everyone I talk to who is in the beauty therapy/hairdressing industry because she has so many years experience and has been where we are! I think it is fantastic that she is now available to share her knowledge with us!
– Lisa, clinic owner, Tauranga
I just wanted to extend a personal thank you to you. My daughter Lauren spent some time with you and one of your staff yesterday afternoon, finding all about a career in beauty therapy and Lauren was full of enthusiasm when she was telling me about it last night. She is quite a quiet girl so it was refreshing to hear her speak so positively. She mentioned your name and I have heard of you before and know that your business has won many awards in the past. I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to speak with Lauren, as she now has a clear picture of what she needs to do, if she wishes to pursue a career in that direction. I have many students come for work experience in my business and it is great to give them that opportunity.
– Bev, Titirangi
I would like to thank you for all your assistance and support with our entrant’s tutorial last night. It is great to have a great support behind you, which makes these events the success that they are. The comments we received from the attendees were that the night was a great success and that they are interested in being apart of this year’s awards. This was very much assisted by you sharing your tips on putting your entry together and your story of what this very process had meant for you as a business. Once again thank you.
– Julie Stevens, Business Awards and Networks Coordinator
I wanted to pass on my personal congratulations following the Pathways to the Future Awards ceremony last week. Your staff are a credit to you and they clearly respect and admire you. I have only recently taken up the role of General Manager at Prestige Services, and I would very much like to see one of our employees up there accepting an award next year. You have certainly inspired that goal.
– Veronica, New Lynn
Thanks for the opportunity to work with you and your team. You’re doing amazing work and I do consider it an honour and privilege to be of service to such a fine organisation. Best wishes to you all in your continuing journey to the fulfilment of your vision and aspirations.
Margaret and all your team, you know how to look after a girl when she needs it most! You are all very professional, talented at what you do and lovely people.
Margaret – I really appreciate your support.

“I am a graduate of 2011 :you came in and had a chat to us & shared some of your knowledge with the beauty classes that year, You have stuck with me quite vividly from then onwards.
I am wanting to start up a small beauty business of my own now as I feel I’ve got enough experience behind me to be able to achieve this with high standards, are there any tips and tricks you can help me with as to how to have a successful business I have a regular clientele of about 60 but as I have never owned my own place I need to know as much as I can to keep myself afloat and thought of no one better to ask but you: as lv always used your advice from 2011 to get me to this point now ? and would like to take the time to thank you for being such a huge influence with my career “
