Been to the 2 day seminar and was encouraged to sign up for the much more expensive Life Design. Don't get sucked in at any cost!! They're very clever at making you feel like your life is currently crap because of what you've been doing and thinking. It's all your fault and you absolutely need their help to be able to turn things around for good. If it's not working, it's because you're not making enough of an effort... What they use is a mish mash of wisdom from various self-help authors. You're better off reading the stuff yourself and signing up for online courses with those great writers without the interference of eq. A profound seminar, as well as being lots of fun. I'm much happier, more fulfilled, more enthusiastic about life. I'm taking regular action towards what I want in my life. I am healthier, lost 1.5kg on the seminar. I learned a lot about money. I too am chasing a refund and with no success. perhaps those of us who are in the same boat could get together and work out how we can achieve this as a group. Class action maybe? What a bunch of hypocrites!! You run seminars on positivity and personal development yet you don't pay your bills and shaft other people!!! I'm a caterer who had to chase my money for 3 MONTHS after catering for EQ Events, having to resort to a debt collector in the end as EQ wouldn't pay my invoice.I then lost a big chunk of MY MONEY through having to pay the collection fees. Thanks for inspiring me to NEVER deal with you mob again and maybe think about practicing what you preach! Hop karma catches up with you! I am so proud I attended the Life Design program as I can see my dreams within arm’s length. Meeting people with the same notion of making changes in their lives is supportive and very pleasing. My connection with these great people will continue as I lead the Melbourne team members into meet-up. I look forward to my coaching sessions and my first participation in Success Club. I will embrace the knowledge I have learned. The time to make changes in my life is now. I worked for eQ Events, and I don't recommend that you go to their seminars. They care more about the money than you, and this was proven to me by clients who had paid for a $7,000, unable to attend due to surgery and refused refunds. I got so emotional about it I had to leave the office and cry. They almost fired me because they "doubted my commitment" to them. Hi Mandy,
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you are very unhappy. I'm wondering if you or your sister in law have been to one of the many Expos/Festivals we have exhibited at, such as the Mind Body Spirit festival, Utopia Women's Wellness or The High Tea Party, rather than one of our seminars. These festivals can be very busy and there are lots of exhibitors, so it's understandable if you don't remember meeting our team.
Agree with an earlier comment. Constant telemarketing and point-blank refuse to take you off their mailing list, even after being politely requested several times, over the last few years. Unprofessional Hi Jasmine,
We are sorry you feel your husband was sucked in. Our courses help people find out what their life's purpose is and living it, so if your husband believes he is not living his life's purpose, this is something we can help him with. We agree it's not possible to feel on top of the world all of the time. That's why we include free coaching sessions in the price of our courses to ensure we are there for our clients when they need some motivation, inspiration or support.
Don't ever deal with these Scumbags. Peter "The Conman" Connor is an expert in scamming vulnerable people in handing over their life savings to get rich quick. I only have one advice to you. STAY AWAY FROM THEM! EQ are full of sh*t....they just care while they get money than never talk to you again....they have no integrity and lie... Yes my husband has been sucked in. We did a Tony Robbins course about 4 years ago and ever since than he has believed he is not living his life's purpose. He has been so depressed and constantly reading self help books. He is currently doing the eq 7 day course which has cost a fortune and while their has handed over more money. The problem I find is that these courses break you down and then build you up with so much hype. They make you feel on top of he world. That feeling can't last and when you come back to earth the crash is hard and devasting. My husband has become the type of person that can't be happy with it. I no longer can handle it.
Do not do it. Go to a dr. Life is not that bad.
I am currently trying to get a refund after 3 months notice i wanted to cancel. My friend attended the course and gave them my number. I was pushed into booking without notice I could not get a refund. Very poor form. Hi all,
My partner was trying to help me rebuild my life after a break down.
He purchased two tickets to a 'Personal development' two day seminar.
We have taken time off work for this course and it has been cancelled twice over the duration of two months, last minute.
After the second cancelation, the woman on the phone advised us that we could get a refund and to call during office hours.
We have since been chasing our money of about $400. We have called, left messages and sent emails.
I really wish my partner looked this place up before investing in some tickets.
We could really use that money right about now.
Do not make the same mistake!
They target coming vulnerable people telling them they can make their lives better. If you don't get better, it's your own fault and you attract your own sh*t to your life...
Because you know, 2 weeks had only past, a miscarriage is totally my own fault... but hey, that's in the past, right? and I needed to get over myself.
Agreed Yes, I have been sucked into life design first, paid $7000 and then again sucked in by paying for coaching by stupid conman Peter Conna paid $25000 for his stupid coaching which was useless. And then I bought their shares, which they said at the time of buying that if we want to sell anytime we can sell to company, and we get dividends every year November. Which I am chasing it last year dividend. ok so this company is the biggest scam ever. I used to work there and they use ANYTHING to get you into the seminar only to upswell you and basically say if u don't want to buy the thousands of dollars worth of other programs then you obviously are not committed to having a good life. They will use a family member dying to down right tricks to get you in there. They haven't paid me my super or anyone else in the company the super in over 2 years. I have lodged complaints only for them to change their name from success and you to EQ events to avoid paying out the super. I used to speak to at least 3-4 people a day chasing money they are owed Wow I would never of thought there would be so many negative comments, out of what ? 35000 people or there about.
I did Life design and yes I feel I was coerced into it at first, but you know what at the end of the day it was my decision.
Although I struggled with some of the way the program was run and methods, I got so much more out of it than you can imagine. and now years later I still use some of the things I was taught and just brush aside the things that went against my belief.
these programs are designed ( in my eyes) for you to receive and take in what you personally need at this stage through your journey and for you to continue to make your own decisions. If you feel you didn't get out of it what you thought you would, than maybe ( just maybe) your expectations are higher than your self belief.
Wow! I'm glad I didn't answer when they called me.. the thing that first made me skeptical was when i called back and they have no answering machine... it's an automated leave a message anfter the tone type thing...
dodgy... will be adding this number to my blocked callers and to the spam list for other people...
