About Jule Fuller
Jule commenced her career as a management cadet with the large Sydney retailer Grace Bros now known as Myers. This is where her thirst for results was born. Jule had a knack of creating increased sales performance for the various departments she managed. She had the ability to achieve number one status state wide for percentage increases in sales over the previous year. Jule eventually moved from retail department management into fashion buying where she became a successful fashion buyer for Grace Bros.
Jule left Grace Bros to pursue her first love of teaching and started teaching for the School of Business Studies at TAFE. From there she obtained a position as Head of the Special Programs Unit for TAFE Blacktown. One of the major sections she managed included employment training for unemployed youth aged between 16-24 years. The training programs obtained unprecedented levels of success with 84% of students either obtaining employment or going onto higher studies. The numbers where considered unprecedented due to the low socio economic demographics of the area and the fact that most of the students had failed the school system or put more accurately the school system had failed them.
Another highlight whilst working with TAFE was that Jule designed and implemented a Long Distance Education Program In Small Business Management for fashion students who lived in country regional areas. Most of the women had married young, had families and as a consequence had never worked. As a result of this their confidence in successfully completing a business management subject was extremely low. All their other subjects involved hands on dress making classes. These women proved that anything was possible by achieving the following results. 90% achieved A’s, 7% B’s and 3% C’s with no failures. To add credibility to these scores 50% of their final result consisted of an externally set exam.
Jule eventually left TAFE to return to the private sector as Learning and Development Manager for the large international duty free retailer DFS. Whilst there she changed the organisations view of training and development from training being a complete waste of time that nobody wanted to attend to managers and staff queuing up to attend training sessions. She also learnt accelerated learning techniques whilst there and would often take 3-4 day programs and reduce them to 1or 2 day programs with 100% knowledge transfer. One of Jule’s greatest achievements whilst there was to be the instructional design specialist for a worldwide company project on Japanese Language Training. Jule then trialled the program in Australia. In order to test that the training methodology worked, 8 staff members who had never been able to successfully learn conversational Japanese enrolled in a nine week program with six hours training per week. Participants were tested before and after the training and achieved an average test score after the nine week period 89.5%. This was truly remarkable as their base score at the beginning of the program was zero. Again Jule received more confirmation that all things were possible when the right design and facilitation principles where in place.
Jule moved on from DFS to set up her own company The Success Training Specialists and contracted for various organisations. During this time she again wanted to push the boundaries on possibilities and decided to write and publish her own book on the power of the mind. From the time she sat down to write the book to when it came back from the printers was precisely 2 months. To challenge herself further Jule did all the desk top publishing for a very graphical and interactive book when she was completely computer illiterate. As a totally unknown author with absolutely no contacts she then managed to sell the book to a number of small book stores in Sydney as well as Dymocks and the Australian Institute of Management. Jule used the concepts contained in the book to write, publish and sell the book.
After working for herself for a few years Jule returned to the corporate arena as state Learning and Development Manager for Westpac. She eventually moved on to become the National Training and Development Manager for Sales. Whilst in that role she designed and facilitated a mindset sales training program where consistently sales and referrals increase by over 300%. For example individual sales managers directly after attending the training increased their sales from 3.5 million a quarter to 11 million. Referrals increased from 28 a month to 90 a month. Also during her time at Westpac Jule designed and implemented a sales process which cut training time by 75% and increased strike rate and cross sales significantly.
After leaving Westpac Jule took up the role as Head of Learning and Development for Merrill Lynch Australia whilst there she saved the company $500,000 in yearly operational costs for their graduate recruitment program. This was achieved by changing both the recruitment and training process. This also resulted in a much more targeted and successful recruitment process.
After leaving Merrill Lynch Jule once again returned to her own business where she designed and implemented a company wide training evaluation system for the Commonwealth Bank. She also designed and implemented an online training program for new marine pilots for Sydney Ports Australia which reduced training and accreditation time by two thirds. This lead to her speaking at the Asia Pacific Pilotage Conference. Jule also project managed the design and implementation a series of e-Learning programs for Westpac when it decided to reposition its major product lines across both the consumer and business markets. At the end of the project the feedback was that it had set a new benchmark for e-learning within Westpac. Whilst working with JP Morgan Australia Jule redesigned their induction training and reduced training time from 12 days a quarter to 2 days and administration time from 6 days a quarter to 1 day.
Currently Jule focuses on assisting people to live up to their true potential. Some of her achievements include:
Piloting Use Your Brain For Success concepts with a group of teachers at Braddock Public School in Western Sydney with outstanding results which included: significant increase in Naplan results; intellectually disabled students outperforming mainstream students in basic maths and spelling; a 96% reduction in children being sent to the reflection room for inappropriate and disruptive classroom behaviours; an 80% decrease in student suspension rates; students getting up and walking out of classroom reduced from 15% to 2%; teaching application went from zero to 33 after the implementation of the concepts, before that no teachers would apply to work at the school; reduction in both student and teacher absenteeism.
