A bit about me...

The Practical Professional Me: I am a performance and business coach and mentor with a solid business background having run successful businesses in IT, property and publishing. I am a certified SFEDI and ILM Business Advisor, NLP Master Practitioner, member of the Association for Coaching, IIC&M and Association of Business Mentors. I have worked with clients from the corporate world, public sector and education, and with entrepreneurs and start-up enterprises as well as on numerous government backed business support schemes from Rural Enterprise through to Growth Accelerator.  

Additional activities in the business support arena include experience as a speaker and leading workshops at The Mindful Employer Network, the Research Councils, Wiltshire Police, A4E, Reading Council, New College Swindon, Wiltshire Council, Hadlow College, RNIB, businesses and private development groups and teams on subjects including entrepreneurship, handling and understanding uncertainty, the emotional journey at work, presentation and branding, building confidence and resilience. I was a contributor on the MentorsMe initiative, sitting on Task & Finish Committees at The Department of Business Innovation and Skills, being involved with the development of the ongoing business support landscape.

What are my strengths? Working with ambitious and innovative business leaders and entrepreneurs to identify goals and resources and implement strategies to facilitate change for effective growth. Working with individuals and teams managing stress and uncertainty, building resilience, career transition and change management.  High impact coaching and mentoring to build motivation, purpose, successful outcomes, and just help you get out of your own way.  Profiling to understand behavioural preferences, build strengths and create better relationships. 

The Interesting Me:  I love people watching and anything about how the mind works, neuroscience, performance, reading and listening to clever people who can teach me and satisfy my curiosity.  I love Argentine Tango, travelling and finding the lightness in living.
