It’s Time to Fire Negative Thinking
From Your Team

Not only is it boring, it steals your energy, sleep, and time.

It looks like excuses, finger pointing and laziness.

  • People pulling in different directions

  • More energy spent on the politics than the opportunities

  • Everyone misses out

The individual misses out. The team misses out. The world misses out.

What a waste. 

There’s another way.

We’re Top Five Movement…

…and we’ve flipped the script on mindset + resilience training. They don’t call us the most refreshing take on mindset, resilience, leadership and productivity for nothing.

As a team of award-winning mindset coaches, we highlight the choice, dismiss the idea of fluffy positive thinking, and get practical. At Top Five we help you develop new perspectives, raise the bar on solutions, and help your team take better care of each other along the way.

We show you and your team how to retrain and rewire your brain on a daily basis.

Ann-Marie has walked in the shoes of an executive for over a decade and has a proven track record for delivering and driving sustainable results while keeping it real, creating more meaningful leadership at a team and individual level.

Ann-Marie has a knack for shifting our clients perspective from “I should” to “I will’ and actually mean it. We’ve seen first hand people shift from self-doubt, confusion and avoidance to being deeply in action and achieving beyond what they thought was possible.

In her “spare time” you’ll find Ann-Marie in one of her other businesses where they fly drones over film sets, or thinking strategically as the Chair of Volunteering SA/NT and a Trustee for Kalyra Communities.

Ann-Marie is a two time winner of the Telstra Business Womens Award, and a recipient of the Centenary Medal for Leadership in the Community.

Dr Angela Gent

Dr Angela Gent is no stranger to sustainable behavioural change.

Ange brings a realistic and human approach to her coaching by drawing on her experience as a psychologist and qualifications like her Masters degree in Clinical Psychology and a PhD from The University of Melbourne.

In her role as a coach at Top Five, Ange applies neuroscience, psychology and behaviour change principles to support generous leaders to be more effective at their very important work in our communities and the world.

Ange takes her deep knowledge and makes it accessible through her warmth, humour, and openness. We’re been told that whenever our clients meet her, they feel like they’ve known her for years.

We’ve seen first hand how Ange makes people feel held with her presence and can help understand their thoughts better to unlock incredible confidence, action and momentum.

Ange continues to see her psychology clients in between her coaching sessions with us. Ange has a love of learning like we’ve never seen before so in her spare time you’ll find her with her head in a book, attending a course, or hanging out with her family.


Jodi Mactaggart

Jodes is our Program and Ops Coordinator. She brings decades of experience not only building strong teams but turning them around from operating at a loss to significant profit. 

Jodes is your first point of contact and manages the logistics of hundreds of people on our programs at any one time. She’s fuelled by supporting other leaders to build their teams and get real results while staying human.  

Jodes loves problem solving on the fly and primed this skill while working in the travel industry. She’s now our secret weapon at Top Five to creating life-changing experiences for our clients. 

In her spare time, Jodes is all about connection. From backyard BBQ sessions, to raising her boys at the beach and travelling every weekend to bring the joy to someone else – whatever she’s doing, her infectious energy flows. 

No one loves a laugh more than Jodes and we’re pretty sure she writes all the jokes for her partner’s comedy shows.

What’s in a name?

Our business name came from our movement of generosity that was sparked from a daily little habit called writing a Top Five list. We think this little list is the secret weapon not only for changing our day but actually changing the world.
