Even while still in his 20s, Rik Rushton had been appointed head trainer for the Australian Real Estate Network. Before he’d hit 30, he’d already received awards for "Excellence in Training" as well as a "Highly Commended Young Achiever Award" from his industry peers.
By the mid 90s, Rik’s vision had been born: “To create a training company that could achieve a simple mission - to deliver the highest quality personal development programs empowering individuals to their next level in business and life!" Thus it was that Insight Personal Development came into being.
That’s still Rik’s driving force today.

In any given moment, a new set of choices, a new set of actions and a new set of results are just a decision away! Ultimately, it is actions, not words, that determine the outcome of our lives!".
