Hello and welcome! I'm Emile Neethling, the energetic and passionate founder of AGT Coaching Limited. Since 2015, I've been on a mission to unlock the greatness in people across all walks of life, from top business executives to frustrated teachers and challenged teenagers.

My Journey

The story of AGT Coaching began in South Africa, where I started my first coaching company, Karmic Group, in 2015. Quickly, it became a hot spot for leadership and life coaching, earning excellent reviews and respect in the process. Among the achievements I cherish, one company I coached was awarded the title of ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR in South Africa's premier annual entrepreneurial competition in 2017.


In 2020, my family and I relocated to New Zealand, where I founded AGT Coaching. AGT, standing for Actively Growing Together, symbolises my aspiration to build long-term relationships with my clients as we jointly navigate the path of growth and learning.

Coaching Style and Philosophy

I bring authenticity, energy, and enthusiasm to my coaching practice. I believe in creating an environment that ignites personal growth, enabling individuals to realise and live their full potential. I am committed to maintaining a thinking environment that fosters continuous learning, development, and breakthroughs.

Values and Achievements

As a coach, I possess a growth and learning mindset and a born-to-coach attitude. My insatiable thirst for knowledge drives me to level up my skills and methodologies continually. Coaching is not just a job to me; it's a calling. I genuinely care about people and consistently strive to exceed their expectations.


I have been privileged to work with business executives from small to medium organisations, advising and coaching them on creating and sustaining cultures that drive unlimited results. My dedication to my clients and their growth has earned me their respect and loyalty.


Here's what some of my clients have to say about our journey together:


"Emile is calm, relaxed, and professional. He relates with people on various levels, maximising their growth sensibly and realistically".


"He has a unique, empathetic and insightful demeanour in unlocking growth areas. He is extremely good at determining whether to keep pushing or letting you go".


"His natural ability to connect with people enables a comfortable and safe environment for people to explore challenging areas".

Personal Life

Away from coaching, I cherish my family as my highest priority and strive for a balanced life. My wife, Gerna and our two daughters, Emma and Isabel, are my greatest joy. We enjoy exploring the outdoors and the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand.
