Why Work With Me?
My mission is to make creatives* commercially clever.
I believe that anything you can imagine you can create.
And the only thing between you and what you imagine are your self-limiting beliefs.
Working together you’ll create a specific business and personal plan that will position you for success…
You’ll learn how to
- Align you with YOU
When you ‘own’ who you are, you eliminate the stress of competition
- Transform your relationships
Focus on clients who you like to work with, who love you and value what you help them do
- Create space for what matters
Effortlessly experience more time, more money, more fun… more fulfilment
Creating instead of reacting
When you evolve, embody and develop deep confidence, clarity and self-trust you enter your day prioritising what actions are important aligned with your business mission.
Each day you intentionally and powerfully choose how to play your business and life game to incrementally accomplish your goals and dreams.
In short, your aligned actions make your success inevitable.
*We’re all creators hence we’re all creatives whether numbers, images, words, materials, men or magic is your thing
Who am I?
Hi! I’m Eilish – the founder and director of eilish bouchier, be.creative.
In this role I act as a catalyst to transformation for entrepreneurial thinkers, leaders and businesses.
My passion is empowering you with the discipline and self-awareness to first lead yourself, then your business, those in your environment and, ultimately, your own life.
I can speak from experience – I’ve enjoyed over 25 years acquiring it at the intersection of creativity, culture, commerce and consciousness with global and local organisations. I’m all about synergy; collaborating with visionary souls who are eager to explore and discover new ways of being and doing business and life.
I help you build a business and brand you love to live in.
I have long held the belief that business can be a model for what’s good in the world, and that businesses don’t fail, people fail to give the business what it needs.
When we work together using my proprietary InsideOut Practice for Business and Branding Visioning you’ll build a strong framework to guide your unique vision into realisation.
My former and current ventures
I was previously the owner and director of studio51, an award-winning boutique communications and branding agency with global clients like Apple, Vodafone, Scholastic and HarperCollins, and locals such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Centre for Professional and Applied Ethics, Wealthwise Education, Two Swedes Cooking and Sussan Fashion Group.
I have also held the position of Senior Lecturer in Design and Course Co-ordinator at Charles Sturt University.
I host PatChats, a peer to peer breakfast talk and podcast series on the future of business, and am on the Board of The Lansdowne Club.
My (diverse!) academic background
I hope you agree that education is a life-long and transformative process. I graduated from The Limerick Institute for Technology in Design Communications, Construction Studies and Quantity Surveying Part 1 (RICS) with ongoing studies in Business (FÁS), Project Management and Interactive Design (University of Sydney), Kundalini Yoga and Meditation Level 1, (Kundalini Research Institute and Amrit Nam Samovar France) Lifestyles and Lifecycles Level 2 (Kundalini Research Institute and AAA China), Self-Mastery of Tantra and Self-Mastery School of Loving Presence (Divine University Project) and Floristry (Pearsons School of Floristry) and School for Social Entrepreneurs Business Program.
A little more about Eilish
Eilish (rhymes with stylish) lives in Sydney where you’ll often see her cycling for an early morning coffee and swim after her daily yoga practice.
Eilish holds mastery in experiential transformation, facilitating creative breakthroughs, creative direction, design, yoga and meditation and speaking (she’s Irish after all :-), You can hire Eilish to speak, facilitate or mentor at firstname.lastname@example.org
Design Thinking is a way of approaching problems from a place of curiosity, exploration and discovery.
A process used by the great innovators in literature, art and science, along with some of the world’s leading brands from Apple to Samsung. It does not assume the presenting problem is the real issue to be solved.
How it works
Design Thinking seeks to uncover and define the priorities and structure of the issues that will deliver the optimum outcome.
It adopts an iterative approach that develops and tests through a sequence of cycles that yield solutions which become simpler and more elegant.
How you will use it
As a co-creative project you will design a business and brand that works for you now and evolves and grows as you do.
My aim is to create a structure that liberates you to deliver in your realm of mastery for clients who value what you help them accomplish as you both elevate to access new levels of empowerment, and leadership and prosperity.
What you can expect
A business that fulfils your needs, your clients, everyone and everything in its eco-system.
Build the environment you are most suited to inhabit, and are excited to show up for, in service of your ideal clients and team who love and value you.
Less kumabaya, more ‘maybe this will work…’
Joy, success and happiness can only arise when we feel harmony across mind, body and spirit.
Regrettably we inhabit a world obsessed with thinking so we are facing more stress, anxiety and depression.
It’s time to acknowledge, we cannot just live from the neck up – we need an understanding of the role our body plays becoming and being the best we can.
Leadership requires self-awareness
The biggest block to your success is often the stories you tell yourself. To create great things, you must first believe you can in a full body sense and that you are the person to do it.
You must first feel deserving of your desires before you can realise them
I can assure you, there is no profitable and sustainable brand without awareness and trust.
Somatic work and the science of Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga is known as the super-fast highway to awareness. It is an experiential science that works through the body to change the mind, to bring your self-limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging blocks into your awareness so you can change them. Change is challenging as it requires learning until it becomes embodied, then it becomes your new normal.
My own experience
I introduced Kundalini Yoga and Meditation into my work through my own experience. I found that training the mind through the body builds a deep, experiential and compounding self-confidence and self-trust, facilitating and accelerating the embodiment of the insights and discoveries that emerge from the Design Thinking discoveries.
When I introduced clients to the practice, I saw them not just change but transform. It deepened and accelerated our work exponentially and the results they achieved thrilled them and delighted me.
