Don’t take our word for it! Check out what people who have worked with us say.
In the 30 years plus of international service with Rotary, I have never come across a business that possesses the unique skills and talents offered by Dragon Sisters. Their combined international experience and corporate background give Michelle and Yvonne a unique and impressive outlook on business and professional development. The Dragon Sisters have harnessed their experiences and channelled them into a highly effective business model that provides top class results for both corporate, SME’s and not for profit organisations. With professional integrity of the highest level, they are the perfect ‘go to’ for anyone seeking personal profile and brand elevation.
Allan O Jagger OBE Chairman, Kirkdale Industrial Training Services & Rotary International Director 2011 -2013 January 1, 2016
Dragon Sisters are bringing a really refreshing and energetic outlook to the world of corporate performance – by avoiding the more sterile, process driven approaches that often kill off true creativity. Any business can use input from people who have new ways of thinking and aren’t afraid to say so!

I had the privilege to work with Michelle several times. Besides doing outstanding work as editor and writer, she’s been always happy to help with other things as well which were out of the scope of our business relationship. She is hardworking, and always does great job. A real example and inspiration to everyone. CEO Search Explained, Mentor & Author, Hungary

As a campaign manager, Michelle Hanton is extraordinary. Hard working, highly motivating, tactful, organised and budget conscious. She is a generous team leader whose drive and focus helped me win the position of Lord Mayor in my first attempt.

Thanks to my Crystal Clear Consultation I now have clarity and direction with my business. I’m delivering my presentations confidently; my content flows and best of all I've also been getting great feedback and responses from agents! I love the way you immediately ‘get’ what I want to express and how responsive you are to my requests. I’m really pleased to have discovered Dragon Sisters.

Prior to working with Dragon Sisters, I went to a lot of expense and effort to strategize the marketing for my business development – with no real results. I had folders full of information, but not the detail of how to translate this for my own business. Now, I am able to get the strategic positioning, content creation, marketing and business development support, for the specific outcomes and results I want and need for my business. Within 7 weeks I could see measurable, significant improvement. Finally, someone understands me and my business! Michelle has been the angel on my shoulder.

Michelle delivers a sense of professionalism to any role, and is able to perfectly blend a sense of composure and energy for any task. She is an all too rare beast in the industry, in that she genuinely cares about projects she takes on and the people she works for and with. In addition to delivering work from a knowledgeable and experienced perspective, Michelle adds a touch of passion and lateral thinking. By engaging Michelle Hanton you will be securing someone with integrity and skill.
Kel Watt Managing Director, Watt Advocacy & Communications July 4, 2016
Michelle's passion, energy and enthusiasm for life is inspirational. She commits 200% to anything she sets her mind too. She thinks strategically and ensures all stakeholders are involved in decision making. She is collaborative and an ideal leader of any organisation.
Kylie Bade-Peters Hospital Specialist Sales Manager at AstraZeneca July 4, 2016
Michelle is a very effective natural leader who has the ability to bring together diverse groups of people together to achieve extraordinary results. I have observed her invest her own time (outside her professional life) in the development of organisations and teams for the immense benefit of those who participate in these events and wider organisational structures. She has demonstrated well honed skills in strategic thinking, team building, leadership, leadership development to mention a few.

Michelle was fantastic! She delivered the work well before the deadline and the quality was supreme. She even went above and beyond the line of duty and helped me with other aspects of the site.

Michelle is 100% committed to the tasks she takes on. She is reliable, dedicated, has sensible ideas and gets the job done.
Heather Sjoberg MBA FAICD July 4, 2016
Darwin is a small town. I have known of Michelle throughout her journey and our Company has been proud to be associated with the wonderful work Michelle and her ever growing and dedicated band of followers have achieved over the years with Dragons Abreast. Michelle is a born leader and a creative genius, but never thinks of herself, even when times have been bad for her. She always finds a way to turn negatives into positives and her work is admired and appreciated throughout the Northern Territory community.
Karen Sheldon Managing Director, Karen Sheldon Catering Pty Ltd July 4, 2016
I have known Michelle for over 9 years now, in which I have found her to be one of the most respected individuals within her field. Ever since I was introduced to the sport of dragon boating in 2004, Michelle's passion of raising awareness of both and breast cancer and the sport in general was truly remarkable. Throughout this time, Michelle's work within AusDBF was to be commended as she worked tirelessly to raise the awareness of the sport to what it is today. I wish Michelle every success in her future endeavors and I would highly recommend her to any sporting body who is looking for a dedicated individual to raise the profile of their sport.

Highly professional and skilled marketing and media coordinator. Michelle utilises a vast array of skills and contacts to effectively promote our events and operations to a large media base.
Sam Williams Infinity Networks July 4, 2016
Michelle would have to be one of the most inspirational people I have ever known. In the 10 years that I have known her I have heard her address all sorts of different forums and the impact that her words have on people is amazing. One example which I will always remember was her acceptance speech at the Telstra Business Woman of the Year in 2005. She spoke unscripted and from the heart for close to half an hour, bringing many, many of those present, people from all walks of business, to tears with her passion for what she does and her unswerving belief in helping others. In her life Michelle is constantly juggling business and community responsibilities with so much energy and determination. She is an excellent strategist, sorting options, assessing priorities and simplifying issues so that the best pathway forward becomes apparent. Michelle has great people skills, able to get the core message across to so many different people and has gained support from many areas of the community. She is comfortable within herself and this allows her to interact well with everyone she meets. However, I feel that Michelle’s greatest gift is that she is not only willing but keen to use her skills to help others. In business life, it is rare to find a person with high levels of both strategic and interpersonal skills. It is a rare person who is also passionate to use these strengths to help others to succeed.

Michelle took over the position of CEO Lifeline Top End at a time when the organisation was in need of having its procedures and policies reorganised. The task has been very challenging, but Michelle's continuing efforts are bearing fruit.

St John Ambulance is so very pleased with the spread that appeared in the January edition of Darwin Life Magazine, acknowledging the winners of the 2011 Volunteer of the Year Awards. We are so thrilled to receive the Volunteer Organisation of the Year for SA/NT. I just wanted to pass on our thanks to you as I believe that you were the one to initiate the wonderful media coverage in Darwin Life Magazine. We are so grateful for the effort you put in and the wonderful result. I have had many calls and comments from friends and partners of St John around town, who have seen this month's Darwin Life Magazine and seen the photos of the awards presentation evening. Thank you for your support.

I needed a quick review of a Hewlett Packard Enterprise presentation for a national conference. Michelle did an excellent job, provided solid feedback, and finished the review on the same day. Thanks Michelle!

The NT Working Women's Centre engaged Michelle Hanton from Dragon Sisters to assist us with marketing, fundraising and profile raising. As a small NGO, we were very lucky to obtain a grant from the NT Department of Business and Innovation to assist with this. From the beginning, we felt in very safe hands as Michelle quickly understood the way we worked, our values and objectives and the particular challenges we face. It was a difficult time for us as we were managing federal funding issues, and Michelle was supportive and proactive in ensuring that the necessary work we had to do for our organisation's survival was complemented by the profile raising. Michelle worked with us on increasing our social media presence, online fundraising, event organisation, expanding our circle of influence and embedding a more structured approach to service promotion. As a result of the work, we raised a significant amount of money to assist us in decreasing our reliance on government grants. We also learned new skills that we will continue to apply to ensure the longevity of our organisation. Michelle definitely went the extra mile for us, working above and beyond our expectations and drawing from her own networks to support us. Her kindness, passion, humour, skill, understanding and flexibility always made our meetings something to look forward to. We cannot thank Michelle enough for her help.
