It is a privilege to be trusted to help others realise potential in all aspects of their life.A long and varied career has enriched my knowledge and understanding and I am happy to share some of this experience with growing individuals and businesses. Engaging in conversations which provide insights and taking a relaxed but supportively challenging and focused approach.Working with me you will find a safe space to explore issues, opportunities, and challenges and in our conversations you will find a critical but nurturing friend.
I am an experienced coach and mentor with particular skills in executive coaching, organisational development, and change management.
I have broad and diverse experience in growing, developing and transforming businesses, including working as a mentor and adviser to a London based PropTech start-up, leading a £12m turnover national chartered surveying business, and setting up a new mortgage lender.I also held a role as HR Director for a UK plc.
One of the benefits to growing older is acquiring extensive business and life experience. I have been a Managing Director, Business Development Director, HR Director, and Non-Executive Director.I have been married, divorced, become a mother, worked through three recessions, been made redundant, made others redundant, closed and opened businesses. I have had success in building and developing start-ups and also achieved favourable results with businesses that have lost their way or need to refocus their strategic direction.

Specific areas where I can offer support and coaching include strategy, business planning, start up, business development, brand development, change management, communications, general HR guidance, recruitment, succession planning, coaching, mentoring, and performance management.
