About the author
The ethos behind my coaching work with leaders and their teams is that you are at your absolute best at work when you can trust yourself, be authentic and inspire others.
I’m an Executive Coach and I’ve been coaching professionally since 1999 with people in large and small businesses and organisations in the private, public and third-sectors.
Although my approach is usually pretty light-hearted and informal, I take people’s development very seriously. I’m into the practical application of learning and understanding and I like helping people to make their actions as effective as possible. I have hard-skills business qualifications: FCCA and MBA; as well as soft-skills qualifications: Certified Professional Coach, NLP Masters and Newfield Mastery in Coaching.
Previously I worked in senior Finance, Corporate Strategy and Project Director jobs in one of the UK’s largest organisations and also set-up, grew and eventually sold a small international consultancy business. I’ve served on the Institute of Director’s regional board and two terms on their national governing Council. I’ve also been a Non Executive Director and chair of audit at my local hospital trust.
