About Us

 
 

Beyond Success has been helping people to achieve their dreams since 1984.

Our History

PB&MB

Our founders, Paul and Mary, decided they wanted to ‘change the world’ by teaching and training others to reach their potential. In more than 30 years they have never wavered from this intention, and today are proud to own Australia’s most influential and successful personal development company.

  • Julie Blackburn

    Julie BlackburnGeneral Manager [Commander In Chief]

    Julie is the lynch pin of our operations, overseeing all aspects of the business. Julie has been with Beyond Success since its infancy – and hers too! One of Julie’s earliest memories is of sitting at the back of a room during a boot camp with colouring-in books and pencils. Her biggest fears are snakes and public speaking – which is why she loves working in the background!
