Hello Stranger,
How are you?
I wanted to share with you that my 15yo daughter has read your book ‘INNERWEALTH’ and is now making reference to it during our conversations. She is one inspiring, beautiful and deep individual and what she speaks blows my mind and gives me an inner smile & to you I say thank you.
With love,

My Daughter Gets Innerwealth

Invest in your innerwealth with Chris Walker you wont regret it, it will be the best investment of your life, trust me. You wander through your life from your teens, twenties and thirties, there seems so much to look forward to, career, marriage, the perfect house, holidays and then the kids. You then hit your forties and you begin to wonder what’s it all for and why am I on this hamster wheel.  About 18 month ago I looked in the mirror and asked is history going to repeat itself with my career, it was certainly was heading that way until my best mate encouraged me to have a chat with Chris.  After an hour discussion with Chris walking along the beach at Port Melbourne it was clear that he could help me not make the same mistakes I have made multiple times before.  Chris is like no other coach, career counsellor or mental health professional that I have engaged over the years to help work through the career challenges.  You very quickly realise that Chris doesn’t just work on one aspect of your life or development, he works on everything to ensure your balance all the competing priorities.  It’s a wild ride at the start as he challenges everything opinion, value and aspect of your life to ensure he can get you to your next level in your career, marriage, happiness, fatherhood, financial goals, health and more, it’s the entire package.  Given that Chris has a wealth of experience, made plenty of mistakes himself, has a deep knowledge of the human condition and over 40 years of coaching, keynote speaking and development of individuals he can quickly get you to the next level. If you want to improve yourself, wake up inspired every day of your life and fulfil all your dreams, give him a call, drop him an email and start something very special.  We often forget to invest in our most valuable asset, ourself, 18 months on I know where I’m heading and I have another lifetime ahead of me, it’s just the start of the second half, thanks very much Chris for building my innerwealth.

Thank you, Andrew.

NATIONAL OPERATIONS MANAGER

Chris, your work is more than just digging deep, it’s about taking control & driving the bus. It’s about clever use of time & resources to be absolutely present in each of the different pieces of the puzzle. I found your work with me to be about clearing a rolling fog that if allowed, will persist throughout the day/week/month/year. What I’ve achieved is an effective morning, combining the elements of healthy food, exercise and focus on the current task and making time for the big picture, all threaded together in a way that hits these pieces at full throttle. This approach brings the relief and release that comes with knowing you have had a solid, effective crack at something without the fog of distraction, without competing alternatives for any given minute or hour. Shift Happens and the Innerwealth Process is the best way of achieving it. 

Thank you always

Take Control and Drive the Bus

Two years ago I was at a work Christmas party and I mentioned to my boss how miserable I truly was. My husband was an abusive drunk and my young children were traumatised. I was trying to do a great job at work and we could not survive the mortgage on his salary. He took trips to brothels and I saw the charges on the joint credit card. He lost his wedding ring three times, hiding it while in bars and forgetting to put it back on before coming home. I was a mess.

My boss was being coached by Chris for none of these issues. She was seeing him for business growth and career guidance but generously and lovingly she gave me his number. It feels like yesterday. That night, and my boss’ generosity changed my life

I am now a happy, financially independent super woman, single mum, owner of my Appartment, and having the best life with minimal stress in a pandemic environment. So, thank you to my ex boss, Chris and the stars that aligned to change my life.

A Party that changed my Life

Typical of any accountant I would like life to occur in a linear fashion, unfortunately that is just not the case, and there are lots of ups and downs along the journey.  Given this, it is important to have an experienced guide to help you on that journey, especially when the fog created by my over active brain sets in.  

Similarly, as someone is used to operating at a senior level and with strong self-belief, you need someone with the strength of character to call you on your ‘bull dust’.  It is critical that you have someone who can as much challenge as support you and then provide a pathway towards improvement. 

Chris has been, and is, that life guide for me.  His wealth of life experience and insights (meaning he has already made all the same mistakes already) positions him ideally to fill this role.   He has been great in guiding me across the different areas in life and equipping me with the tools to succeed in life and tackle the challenges it throws up.

Cheers.

HR Magazine

I’ve been seeing Chris every week for almost 3 years. He has helped me realise my true value, successfully navigate a career transition and secure a step-change in income. I’ve truly enjoyed his unique blend of support and challenge, which is always delivered in good humour. Working with Chris has lead to huge personal growth and has improved not only my career but my marriage and my family life. Chris has essentially given me an advanced self-leadership toolkit and has shed light on limited thinking and unproductive behaviours that have been holding me back. Thanks Chris. I hope more and more people can experience your amazing work.

Stephen Turner – SENIOR MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT

Chris has been my life line. I have been working with him for the past 5 years and has taken me through some really tough challenges and hurdles. From the day I have met him he has looked directly into my soul. Someone – or maybe the only one – who really understands me. And from this place he has worked on developing me. When I look back I can’t believe how much has changed. I have become so much happier, healthier, a better mum, a better friend, a better employee, a better human-being. His work resulted in me becoming more focussed and more grounded. I’m not gonna lie: the coaching can be tough, very tough. And it can come from a angle you never even considered. Sometimes I don’t want to talk to him because he puts pressure and focus on areas I don’t want to go. I get angry and can feel threatened. But I have come to experience that overcoming these barriers is exactly what you need in order to progress. And Chris can – like no other – highlight which barriers you have to overcome next…. 

He has taught me how to become more relaxed, enjoy life more, feel more connected to myself and the people around me. I’m so grateful for how he has helped me to increase the quality of my life. 

ESTER – Netherlands – Global Warming – OCEAN MANAGEMENT

Chris – to you –  unique spirit, beautiful soul, living angel, loving heart

Every day, I wake up and my first thoughts are – “thank god I’m alive! Thank you!!”

I carry on with a morning routine which Chris thought me, “The Walkachi” I make it my own and made it my own version, although the structure is always the same. It’s about learning how to set my intentions for the day ahead to be success, my success. It is such a easy process that even my kids seeing me doing it every day started embracing it themselves – in their own way.

Since I met Chris, I have learnt many new tools and turned them into habits I can sustain with minimum effort. I have become my own person and started growing my own garden of happiness, I even put a fence around it to protect it. it’s priceless, to see where I came from and what I’ve achieved since being coached by Chris, and what I’m living today. It is priceless, the joy I have today combined with the excitement of what’s next to come tomorrow. I can’t remember one morning where I didn’t smile with my heart wide open, with love and sparkles of joy going in and out to the world.

With patience, love, genius tools and an incredible commitment to open hearts, Chris taught me how to enjoy every step of my life, no matter what’s happening, no matter the events, good or bad, sport injury, divorce, work stress, parenting challenges, financial distress, Covid lockdown, you name it. Chris taught me how to see balance in every situation and be stress free while learning from those events and getting stronger and happier on the way.

Today, I am able to honestly say: thank you for making me realise that I’ve got the life I’ve always dreamed of… and that’s it as simple as being able to appreciate the form I’ve got it in.

Being coached taught me that there’s no limit to dreams and success and that challenges are real but just in a ‘can do’ bucket.

Today, I finish the day with more energy than I started it with. And that was high already.

Lucky to be coached!

Thank you Chris!

MELBOURNE CFO FINANCE

I first met Chris in June, 2015.  I was on the right side of 50, but not in a happy place and hoping my circumstances might change.

The first month with Chris was annoying and then amazing. My mindset changed and continues to realign with my focus along with better health and vastly improved balance.    

Chris is super generous with his time and support and he makes you feel you are the only client he has. He has an incredible gift to pin down what you might be missing and he will challenge you so will see how badly you want that change you asked for!

I’m so fortunate to have met Chris and will use his practices and keep him my life until the day I across the divide.

If you want someone who can tear through your bullshit and bring you up on the other side bloody, bruised but smiling, It’s Chris Walker. Chris knows how to hold the mirror up for you so you can truly see what is going on within yourself. As ugly as that reflection may be, every time I find myself laughing and grateful for the ability to see what I was hiding from myself. The next step is understanding how you can act from this place. Acting from this place of honesty. As an Actor, this has been a superpower for me – learning to show-up from a place of clarity. As a person and in my day-to-day, it has changed my life. Chris is a generous, ruthless and incredible teacher. A bulldog in his own right, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Max Cattana – Actor, Performer

I’ve had the absolute privilege to spend around an hour a week with Chris Walker over the past 2 years.
The culture and structure of his coaching combines beautifully with extraordinary personal gentleness, experience and insight.  
He regularly guides me to (literal) jaw dropping moments of clarity, and then gently provides a supplementary path, with carefully considered steps that a lead to a new level of personal excellence – as if it was there all along.
His guidance and structure has directly helped me to make significant improvements in my life in a range of areas.
More importantly, he has helped me to understand myself, my story and my path – allowing me to identify and adapt hidden traits that were silently controlling my choices and my existence.
If you have the opportunity to discuss your plans, hopes or dreams with Chris, I urge you to make it happen.  You won’t ever regret it.

Troy Jones – Entrepreneur, Film Maker

Meet Bora Han, an Investment Director within Private Equity at IFM and also mother to two year old Andrew, avid traveller and developing baker.

Bora joined IFM in November 2018 when our Head of Private Equity, Stuart Wardman- Browne sought her expertise in corporate turnaround consulting and mid-market investment management to dovetail with IFM’s shift in focus to direct investments.

“In Private Equity, we’re directly invested in the businesses we partner with. Our current strategy is focused on investing in mid-market growth companies with proven, resilient business models and a clear, actionable growth agenda. We’ve recently invested in health and business services and often look for companies that are underpinned by technology because they are more scalable.

“I’m part of a close team that has a diverse range of investment, commercial and business experience. Together, we roll our sleeves up and work with business owners to set a vision and help them to achieve and grow. For me, that is the fun (and challenging) part and not only satisfying and rewarding for me personally and for IFM, but also for the portfolio companies,” says Bora.

Not too long after joining IFM, Bora took parental leave and returned in 2020 over the lockdown period.

“It was challenging to return to work during lockdown with a little person in tow but it has worked out really well and IFM’s flexible working policy has been instrumental in getting the balance right. What I would say is that having a child has enhanced my outlook and perspective on things.

“I’m passionate about driving Inclusion & Diversity both within IFM and within the Private Equity space. Women are generally under-represented in the PE industry, particularly in senior positions, and I hope to play a role in turning this around.

Bringing a holistic view and focusing on the areas she is passionate about, Bora has expanded her focus beyond her usual role as Investment Director within Private Equity, by working closely with the Responsible Investment team to further improve PE’s approach, Chairing the Inclusion & Diversity (APAC) forum and championing PE in IFM’s Climate Change Strategy project. For Bora and those she works alongside, it’s gratifying to be affecting real and meaningful change for the better.

Outside of work, Bora is an enthusiastic traveller. “Earlier in my career, I worked in London for several years. Given that we all operate in a global context now, international experience and networks are extremely valuable, but it also was such an amazing period for me as travel is one of my passions.

“One of my most memorable trips was to the Christmas markets in Salzburg, Austria. The lights, the sounds of bells and the gorgeous smell of all the wonderful food is something I’ll always remember on my visit there. I can’t wait to take my son there (maybe not this Christmas!) – I hope he loves it as much as I do.”

During COVID lockdowns in Sydney, Bora has discovered some new ways to spend her personal time, “During lockdown life I’ve taken up baking, which is something new to me. I bought myself a new cake mixer and have been practicing my new skill! I might surprise my team with some goodies when we return to the office.

“Yoga has also been one of my past times over the last 18 months. My neighbour runs one- on-one classes on her back deck overlooking a gorgeous view and I’ve been able to participate with her, which has been great both mentally and physically, particularly after all the cake!” she said.

Investment Director

When Christopher Walker asked me to write this testimonial I was deeply honoured. He is a man that walks his talk, he is the model for the paradigm which he teaches. He teachings addresses that which transcends all religion and spirituality expanding perception, allowing individuals to cut thru obstacles, illusions and move forward in a practical and balanced manner and finally find a new way of being in with certainty, gratitude, love and inspiration. This man is an inspired human being and I am honoured to call him my best friend. I hope that the “” will be you as it has been for me- a nuts and bolts directory to bring more love, beauty harmony and inspiration into your life.

Being coached by Chris Walker is a challenge as your life is constantly under a microscope, your relationship with self and others, each other and your work. The beauty in this is that life becomes an experiment where clarity and simplicity replaces complexity. And as we travel thru our outer layers to touch truth our lives emanate with beauty, a deep love for all things and a knowingness of the harmony that exists

I have been searching for most of my life to bring my work and spirit together , to transform my life into one living organism. There were no laws, structures, religions, businesses that I could discover that would give me the tools to live as a whole being integrating my work and personal life, my inner and outer world. I have searched externally working in the fashion industry seeking out beauty and perfection as a model of achievement and success. I have shifted myself geographically studying other religions and cultures. I have. run international successful business in health and beauty. When I met Christopher walker I discovered that what I was looking for was already there all that needed changing was my perception. From making the internal change my heart opened unto itself and others. Instantaneously my whole world opened. The search was over. I have finally been able to transform my own life, come into my own being to live a life filled with inspiration. Chris Walkers book is a response to a need to restore a coherent culture, a way of thinking and perceiving which brings all aspects of life together. Work becomes play and play becomes work our family becomes a link for us to live with purpose and an inspired vision.

The core of Chris’s work comes down to this:

  • 1 congruency – aligning with purpose
  • 2 bridging the gap between intrinsic values and extrinsic values
  • 3 mind/heart unity
  • 4 engaging will
  • 5 living an inspired  life – life purpose

Through the process of recognising your intrinsic and extrinsic values we become aligned with truth an our consciousness can see clearly the wall which creates our misalignment. It is from this discovery we can dissolve the barrier and live from our true heart with harmony love and beauty. It is of course with clear perception and knowledge that we are enabled to act. Sometimes this requires the sword of truth to shatter our fears and interjected values that have become attached to our identity in order to grow and move forward toward our true selves and our true longings. These teachings are not superficially loving nor coated with candy or lined with fluffy adjectives. 

Christopher Walkers teachings are the truth of spirituality in action and it requires that we all become spiritual warriors and take up our swords to release unnecessary attachments or overcome obstacles so we may face the self, know thy self, love thy self and become a living creation of our souls purpose.

When one loves in this state of grace we are inspired beings. Our actions are imbued with clarity, consciousness, harmony as we move toward our souls longings.. When our being acts holistically with our intrinsic values aligning with our extrinsic values, our wants and actions in unity there is beauty, harmony, love, strength, inspiration, a deep inner peace and a conviction of integrity. We align ourselves to be congruent human beings. We live with our mind and hearts as one mind, one voice, one beat, one entity and our will no longer fragments as it has been empowered to listen to one vibration –mind/heart unity.

It is with the harmonising of these two forces that our spirits are freed to lead us and effect its true voice in the world. This the effect of ‘living in accordance with god’s will’ which has become new age terminology shrouded in mystery. It is a practical process and we all have the choice to live as inspired human beings.

This is the journey which Christopher Walker has himself embarked upon an now teaches others . It is a life based on inspiration, integrity and truth. Living our truth is the greatest gift of all. The search for something more is over as you become that which you seek and instead seek to live out the gift of your life’s work. When one surveys his teachings one is struck by their extraordinary richness and comprehensiveness. In innumerable lectures and talks given all over America, Europe and Australia, his inspired teachings enlightened all aspects of human life with simplicity and clarity and yet with the greatest depth.

Chris’s work covers all aspects of being from business to those of a more personal nature. His comprehension on the laws of relationship is a challenge for most yet it provides a couple with tools to experience the divinity of who they are as individuals and establish laws of longevity. To truly have an inspired relationship no greater gift can be given, nor received, than sharing, supporting challenging each other in carrying out our life’s work. It is then that congruent individuals filled with the spirit of love, inspired by the gift of creation can come together in truth. They exist as two notes coming together to harmonise and produce a melody.

‘Love is the nature of life, beauty is the outcome of life, harmony is the means by which life accomplishes its purpose, and the lack of its results in destruction.”

This is truly the mastery in which Chris Walker has over his own life and teaches others.

Chris has travelled over the last couple of years meeting tens of thousands of people. His coaching and the Innerwealth process is a response to the stresses of modern life, for people who are tired and overwhelmed and are yearning to take charge of their lives and make authentic statements of who they are. And in doing so simply be fulfilled.

Thank you

My Business Coach Chris Walker

The great thing about Chris, my coach, is that he is unique, he is true, he is amazing and innovative. He is funny, wise, compassionate and he is the voice of nature. I don’t know how he does it, but he is not just a coach I hear from once a week. He is just like an angel, in every leaf of a tree you look at, in every smile you give to others and he is that sparkle that falls onto your shoulders if you dare dreaming your own dreams. Chris Walker is also vulnerable and human. He lives his talk, he walks his walk. He falls sometimes too, and admits it, but the love he spreads around him makes him stand back up in no time. My coach is real.

Foxtel

As I mentioned, one person I have used for some time as a sounding board, life coach and career development is Chris Walker – ex engineer, entrepreneur and life coach master who has made and lost millions, written loads of books, led 10s of groups into Nepal, spent serious time in zen in the Himalayas, and worked all over the world including with indigenous Communities in Canada. Suffice to say he is not your normal life coach 😊 Anyway, if you are open to a challenging conversation around your path, then I recommend you reach out to him.

“Looking back at the last month and time at our meetings I feel a lot of love. Those meetings are magic moments where time seems to stand still. They are also like an adventure through mind and spirit. That time your past client just happened to be there, there was a feeling in the air between you guys that was quite incredible. A memorable morning. Non judgmental and real listening, I don’t even have to say a word and you know what is going on. Your business advice using inspiration is a much higher level than the primal competitve macho info that some other coaches pedal. You focus on the whole, not just one part, which other coaches seem to miss.” Mathew … 38, CEO.
