Custom training for your team
Invest in your biggest business asset – your people.
Business is built on communicating effectively. Regardless of your industry or the nature of your organisation, effective communications helps your people be efficient, grow your brand awareness, reach through screens to pluck the heartstrings of strangers and ultimately, do business.
Communications done well should overcome misconceptions and misunderstandings, bring diverse viewpoints together towards a constructive goal, and make people feel seen and heard.

Your Intrepid Guide, Business Coach & Digital Marketing Trainer
Hi! I’m Brook McCarthy.
I’m head trainer and business coach here at Hustle & Heart.
Since 2005, I’ve been a communications professional. With a background in Public Relations, I’m not just teaching you how to communicate, but to anticipate how your message will likely be received.
From Brisbane to Perth, Sydney to Byron Bay, I’ve run small group courses and classes over the last eight years on magnetic marketing, digital ninja skills, and values-based business.
These courses are the result of years spent in the trenches, helping small business owners across a diversity of industries, to create compelling marketing and widen their reach. No fluff. No hype. Just highly practical marketing and sales courses to help you magnify your impact online.
If you want training or coaching for your team, community or organisation, that’s delivered in plain English, that aims to demystify the digital arena, and empower participants with practical skills (not just pages of notes), then let’s talk.
Organisations I’ve worked with
If you’re wondering whether this training will suit your specific needs, here are some examples of businesses I’ve worked with previously:
- Public Relations consultants
- Advertising agencies
- Gym franchise owners
- Australia’s peak body for yoga teachers
- Australia’s peak body for Pilates teachers
- Osteopaths and physiotherapists
- Nation-wide youth leaders from a worldwide Christian denomination
- Registered training organisations for social workers, aged care workers and childcare workers.
I’d seen Brook at one of her courses and was impressed by her ability to quickly and easily explain technical and complex subjects in plain English. Australia Post engaged Brook to present on ‘digital marketing trends for small businesses’ at four of our ‘Grow and Go’ events in Sydney. Brook’s insights, energy and audience interaction were very impressive. I recommend Brook if you’re looking for a speaker or trainer who’s energetic, knowledgable, relatable and cutting-edge without being intimidating.
We engaged Brook as a digital marketing subject matter expert to write course materials for us. Her involvement helped this complex project to run seamlessly. Brook not only deeply understands the complex aspects of digital marketing, but is able to communicate them lucidly and with great empathy for her audience. Her initiative and intuition are commendable and her ability to ‘get stuff done’ was a huge asset.
As well as technical writing, Brook also appeared on camera and was a natural. She was dedicated to producing top quality content as well as a pleasure to work with! We would unhesitatingly recommend Brook as a professional, competent and friendly educator in the digital marketing space. We look forward to an opportunity to work with her again.
Brook ran a half-day session in our studio for a group of 18 gym studio owners on digital and social media marketing.Brook quickly and easily grasped the situation for the majority of attendees and broke down the technology into simple steps and plain English. The training was full of highly practical, creative ideas for our brand to help us stand out among the over-saturated health and fitness market.
I followed up the training by engaging Brook to train two of my staff to implement a social media and email strategy and schedule. Since training with Brook, she’s helped transform our social media and we have so much more client engagement as a result. Brook is very good at what she does and makes it really easy to comprehend for technically-challenged people like myself!
The content was so valuable and practical for us all and you have such a wonderful nature in presentation. The talk came across as very real and genuine. I’ve heard nothing but great reports. Love your work.
