CMA Empowers Change Managers
CMA works for experienced change analysts and change managers, and also those new to the change management world, those lacking confidence and needing practical change management skills, processes and structure to hit the ground running on Day 1.
Ram Pattabiraman, Change Manager
Ten years ago, after many roles in Sales, Project Management and Operations, I realised my true calling was to shift into change and transformation. I approached it thinking “with my experience, I should be sought after and easily find a role that pays well and within a large organisation”.
I applied for many roles and did not even land one interview. I lost my confidence and started to seek out projects on my own as a Management Consultant.
I landed a few projects through my network and was not satisfied with the income I was earning and also started to realise I was missing something – the practical skills and confidence required to succeed in interviews and on the job as a change practitioner.
When I heard Jane speak on a webinar, I instinctively knew and felt that I should make contact with Jane.
So - I booked a coaching discovery call with Jane where she listened and acknowledged my experience and explored what I was looking for in my career. The focus point for me was a role exclusively within change.
She carefully did a comprehensive skills audit and proposed a Change Manager Accelerator coaching program in line with my goals. We set up a series of practical change management skills and activities coaching sessions to learn to build out my customised change strategy and plan with the goal of being in a change management role in 90 days.
Once we completed the Change Manager Accelerator program, I opted for an additional 1:1 CV review session and interview preparation session with Jane to help me apply for and target the right change roles. I started applying for roles, and I was inundated with calls from recruiters and companies! I had 12 interviews in 2 weeks and 4 Job offers in 2 weeks. I picked the best-suited role and started my new role less than 90 days after commencing Jane’s program.
I would highly recommend the Change Manager Accelerator program to anyone who is looking to get into their first change role, or for someone who has the experience and wants to increase their practical change management skills, or for someone who cannot sufficiently articulate their skills and competencies and wants to build their confidence.
The program is conducted as a sprint and Jane supports you every step of the way and matches your level of commitment to take the next step in your change management career. I am so happy I took the step to join Change Manager Accelerator.

Hi, I'm Jane!
As a change management coach & mentor, I am an expert in helping you increase your practical change management skills and confidence.
I help make complex change methodology and activities easy and straightforward. I help you get unstuck by teaching you not just WHAT you need to do, but exactly WHY and HOW so you feel confident executing and leading change management by yourself again and again.
As an experienced change and transformation practitioner, I've been there and done that working with organisations all across Asia Pacific to implement and lead change. From technology projects to relocations, compliance projects to organisation restructures, I've been there.
I started my career as a solo-change analyst with little to no support. Since then I have been committed to finding the fastest and simplest way to learn change management, and understanding what's required to feel confident leading change at your organisation.
I have spent the last 5 years coaching and mentoring change practitioners, so I have taken everything I know about learning change management (and what the most important & impactful aspects to learn are) and included that in my Change Manager Accelerator coaching and mentorship program to give change practitioners the exact support they need to be successful.
I went from being confused and lacking confidence to being an expert in change management delivery and leadership
In just two years I quadrupled my salary
I was creating change strategies and plans with confidence
I was leading end-to-end change management
I started working on national transformation projects
I was confident & able to troubleshoot change-related challenges
I was confident to engage with stakeholders & senior leaders and advise them on change delivery
All by focusing on the practical strategies, techniques and processes
which allowed me to 10X my confidence to deliver highly impactful change
