Professional Executive, Career and Retirement Coach
Who Am I?
In my professional career as a Recruitment Consultant, I helped establish a London based recruitment firm, and became Managing Director of the business. I worked with global organisations and businesses, professional service and law firms on all aspects of their recruitment and people strategies. Clients spanned many industries, including retail, consumer goods, e-commerce, pharma, IT, media and publishing, to name a few.
I was privileged to gain a real insight into my candidates’ careers and lives, partnering with them to identify their next move, and coaching them into their next position. Working with clients to plan and execute their recruitment strategies gave me a unique insight into the inner workings of so many domestic and global businesses.
What My Clients Say
My passion for this work led naturally to a full time move into coaching, obtaining professional qualifications and ultimately to establishing my own coaching and personal development business.
There isn’t much in business I haven’t encountered, which ensures my coaching is practical and rooted in informed business knowledge. I’ve coached professionals with technical backgrounds such as tax, legal, HR, IT and consulting, as well as those in operational, strategic, management and leadership roles. Whether you’re just starting out on your career, or you are a senior executive or leader, I am equally enthused to work with you – each stage presents its own unique challenges and roadmap to navigate.
As for me – I am a literature graduate and my love of words and images lives on – through writing, reading and the visual arts. I live by the sea and a new love is sea swimming and also enjoying the beautiful landscape and nature on my doorstep. And at the heart of it all are family and friends.
What drives me as a coach – first and foremost, working with people! I am positive, curious, solutions focussed and committed to making sure my clients are heard and understood. And whilst coaching is a serious business, I think you can have fun doing it – building a good rapport, enjoying every session and celebrating success are at the centre of how I operate.
