Thinking the bigger picture starts now…


Edgeware’s practice has been developed from experience rather than theory. Based on real-life business experience, advice, and input from people who actually are in business, we draw on the lessons of successful businesses throughout Australia and internationally. offers innovative business training and coaching for established sole traders, business owners and entrepreneurs.

We provide ‘just in time’ training, hands-on tools, and ongoing support to plan and effectively manage and grow businesses, organisations and enterprises.

We have developed a suite of evidence-based business planning tools, proven personal change interventions and a specifically designed, developed and tested content and delivery methodology tailored to the needs of each participant.

Our approach works because it is:

  • Relevant and flexible. Our coaching, seminars, workshops, courses and supporting materials are all tailored to the needs of each individual participant.
  • Personalised. Our approach is founded on the values of trust, respect, and mutuality, as well as the importance of relationships, caring and humour.
  • Practical. Our training is about skills and competencies learned and tested by actual doing, rather than theory or opinion.
  • Enjoyable. Edgeware clients and participants experience a coaching and training process that is engaging, thoroughly unique, personally meaningful and potentially transformational.

Ludmila Doneman

Founder, manager, trainer

Ludmila Doneman’s working life has led her from the mainstream of a rich and critical theatre tradition in Central Europe to re-establishment and training in Australia, from student and ‘laboratory’ theatre in the 70′s into her continuing concern with community development, the arts and social-cultural animation.

She has grown a breadth and depth of skills and experience which continues to inspire and enliven, to ‘quicken’ community aspirations and goals.
