Maria-Jane (MJ) Satterthwaite


Key Facilitator | Program Development and Customisation | Accredited Coach | Assessor

After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at 29, MJ knew that her journey was going to be unique! Unwilling to waste time working 9-5 under poor leadership, MJ seized the opportunity to become an independent worker and started her own Registered Training Organisation, Scope Vision.
MJ’s curiosity into what drives people and businesses to achieve success, has been the passion recognised in her award-winning business. The drive to continue to train and embrace lifelong learning has been her key to success.

20 years on, the passion and curiosity she’s used to shape the businesses she works with and her longevity in these relationships continue to inspire her to share her thoughts and experience with others. MJ has customised and delivered initiatives for the Housing Authority, Department of Transport, Royal Perth Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital, Armadale Health Services, West Australian Police, Western Australian Museums, WorkCover, Colonial Leisure Group, Australian Leisure and Hospitality Group, Holyoake, Brightwater Care Group, The Ability Centre , Paramount Health, Airflite, Air Services Australia, Automotive Holdings Group, AMCAP/Covs, CEVA Logistics, Western Australian Cricket Association, Fulton Hogan, Ertech, Western Power, Logsys Power Services, Future Grid, Perth Power Lines, Mobile MOUSe, Home Base Expo, Australian College of Beauty Therapy and the Australasian Academy of Cosmetic Dermal Science to name just a few.

“Everything has to stand out and that means being different. Training is not about passing on information, it is about passing on the energy of information; it needs to be practical, live and vibrant. You cannot learn business solely through a text book; you can only learn by life, and that is the basis on which I have designed the concept of delivering business training.”
