One-On-One CSO Video Coaching Call

For anyone working with children that has a specific CP or CSO problem

Know the problem but not the solution?
You’re familiar with your child protection process and you know a little about child safe organisations but you and your team are stuck. You feel like you’ve tried everything and are out of options. Maybe you’re facing the same questions and same problems over and over again.

You’ve tried to educate yourself about how to implement child-safe practices in to your setting. You’ve read all the resources on the Australian Human Rights Commission website. You’ve attended all the webinars. You’ve googled this every way you can think of - but you can’t figure out how to apply any of it to your setting in a way that sticks!

Imagine if you knew exactly what to do next…
Imagine this - Imagine being off that hamster wheel. Imagine not being up at 2am hoping to guess the right key words to punch in to google. Imagine delivering results. Imagine seeing all those familiar questions and problems disappearing in the rear-view mirror. Imagine having the confidence to act decisively to create a child-safe environment within your setting.

Speak with a seasoned CSO expert to personally coach you!
Get practical solutions! Often all it takes find clarity for your solutions is to talk to the right person at the right time. You can close the laptop on those late night googling-sessions. Learn exactly what you need to know about creating child-safe and child-friendly environments. Book a live one-on-one coaching call with our Principal Consultant now.

Why should you talk to Brad Poynting, PCA’s Principal Consultant?

  • Brad was working to create child safe organisations before the Royal Commission was called and is still doing it now - everyday

  • He has over 10,000 hours experience coaching organisations in becoming child-safe and child-friendly

  • Brad has worked with some of the largest Early Education providers and Faith Based organisations in Australia on all things child protection and child safeguarding.

How it Works:
You book a 60 minute coaching call with Brad. It will take place over Zoom.
You share the biggest challenge you’re facing with CP or CSO with Brad.
Brad will give you specific instructions about what to do next.

Typical areas that people ask about include:

  • How to get reluctant staff on-board with implementing the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations

  • How to talk to parents about child protection concerns before the need arises to report the matter to Child Protection Agencies

  • How to involve children in decision-making and increase child participation

  • How to identify and respond to grooming in the workplace

Brad will give you no-nonsense advice that you can put in to action immediately. These are not general advice comments you would receive in a group training session. This is practical actions and instructions that you can apply to your work as soon as you finish the call. This is advice based on thousands of hours of solving child protection and child safeguarding problems for organisations big and small and providing advice and consulting for people just like you.

You are welcome to record the call for future reference.

Once you submit your booking request, you’ll be emailed an invoice within 1 business day. Once your investment has been received, you’ll receive a link to schedule a 60 minute appointment in my calendar.

100% Money-Back Guarantee
PCA is so sure that Brad can provide at least one piece of high-value advice that we offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
If at the end of the call you feel that you have not gotten your money’s worth, just let Brad know and we’ll refund your payment in full.

Do you still have questions?
What happens after I pay?
Once your payment clears in to PCA’s account, you’ll receive a link via email to schedule an appointment in Brad’s calendar.
This will be updated soon to allow credit card payments which will mean you’ll receive your booking link immediately.

Are there other costs besides the coaching call?
Probably not. Brad might suggest you purchase a book or resource or something else to help solve you problem, but that’s about it.

I’m nervous about airing out my organisation’s dirty laundry…
Don’t be. Brad and PCA keep all information you share in the strictest confidence. PCA is a professional consultancy. If we were not able to be trusted with sensitive information we would be out of business by now.

Will you sign an NDA before we speak?
No. The lawyer fees involved would likely cost more than the call itself. The information you provide will be held in confidence by PCA.

But I think my situation is different?
It’s not. The under-pinning values of the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations were designed to be universal. The trick is to know how to apply them in different settings and situations.

Can a colleague be on the call with me?
No. This is a one-on-one call. You can record the conversation and share it with your colleague later if you want. Group coaching is something that PCA is considering delivering in the future.

You haven’t answered my questions!
That’s okay. Email brad with the subject: ‘one-on-one-call questions’ at

Speaking Engagements

Are you looking for an engaging speaker on child safe organisations?

Do you want to light a fire under you staff to get motivated to create a child-safe environment?
Our Principal Consultant, Brad Poynting, creates time to be available for a limited number of speaking engagements each year.

Are you a not-for-profit with a high-value social purpose?
Brad is developing a bit of a reputation for heavily discounting his usual speaking engagement investment figures to make sure smaller NFPs with limited budgets do not miss out on hearing vital information about creating child safe environments. Brad is a tenacious advocate for child safeguarding which means that PCA considers requests for speaking engagements on the basis of need, not on profit. This uniquely positions PCA to service a sector of organisations that would normally not be able to stretch their budgets to get the attention of subject matter experts in CSO but need to hear the CSO message just as much as larger organisations.

What’s different about booking PCA?
When you book our Principal Consultant to speak at your event, the process is as simple as we can possibly make it.
All the information you should need is already on our Media Information Page - including a high resolution colour photo.
We’ll ask some questions about the nature of the event, the background of the organisations involved and organising, the location, date and time, number of expected attendees and for an ‘attendee avatar’ of what the expected attendees will be like and do.
If we get the impression that Brad would be a good fit to speak at your event, we’ll prepare a flat-rate, fixed-price ‘all in’ investment figure.
The ‘all in’ investment figure includes all fees, all travel expenses and all other expected costs. You won’t need to reimburse on receipts, or book flights. You don’t need to worry about the chocolates in the hotel room’s mini-fridge or taxis to and from the venue.

I’ve got a speaking engagement for Brad.
Great! Use the Contact Page to arrange a discussion with Brad, our Principal Consultant, about your ‘why’ for wanting a speaker on CSO.
Or email: with the subject line ‘speaking request.’

Need something just for you?

For all child-serving and child-contact organisations

Have you looked through the Product Services and found that nothing is meeting you needs?

Is there something specific that you know you need but isn’t here?

Have you finished a audit against the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations or your own organisation’s child safe principles and need help making improvements?

Does your organisation’s size or structure mean that you need a bespoke solution designed specifically to meet your needs?

Is your organisation recognised as a leader in your sector?

You might be looking for PCA’s Consulting Services page.

PCA’s speciality is working directly with child-serving organisations to develop their Child Safe Framework and Strategy. Typically, we reserve this high-touch, high-value work for early education services and faith-based institutions.

Due to the high-touch nature of this engagement, PCA only takes on a few new clients per year for Consulting Services. But, the clients we take on receive a unique service offering designed exclusively for them. We’ll work with you to identify your organisation’s specific needs. We’ll develop an approach to make sure your needs are addressed in a way which works for you, and ensures we’re meeting the needs of the children and young people that your organisation works with. Together, we’ll create child-safe and child-friendly environments where a child safeguarding culture permeates through every part of your organisation. PCA exists to create child safe organisations.

If this sounds more like what you’re looking for, use the Contact page to arrange an initial discussion with our Principal Consultant or email Brad directly at with the subject line: ‘Consulting Query.’

What's the Difference between a 'child-serving' organisation and a 'child-contact' one?

A ‘Child-serving’ organisation is any organisation which exists to primarily provide services or products to children and young people under the age of 18. Examples include learning institutions (e.g. early education centres, primary and secondary schools, and tutors), youth sports providers (e.g. club and representative sport and training, learn to swim schools, and private coaching), and child entertainers and activity leaders (e.g. children’s party performers, sport-based activity programs/parties, and structured child-focused community initiatives or activities). If in your ordinary work, your staff primarily or exclusively cater their activities to children and young people, you can safely assume that you are a child-serving organisation.

A ‘Child-contact’ organisation is any organisation which as part of their client or customer base, provides services or products to, or engage with, children and young people. People under the age of 18 are not the primary market, but the work that the organisation does brings their staff and volunteers in to contact with children and young people. Examples include health and wellbeing services ( e.g. doctors, dentists, physiotherapists and optometrists), tradespeople that work at locations where young people are (e.g. plumbers, electricians, general maintenance that attend schools, early education centres or sports facilities), and businesses that employ young people (e.g. retail, grocery and service industries which have employees under the age of 18). If in your ordinary work, your staff have contact with people under the age of 18, you can safely assume that you are a child-contact organisation.
