Achieving success for you
Understanding corporate life
My business experience
I have a corporate background as a senior member of the Microsoft Account team at Accenture delivering the “best example of outsourcing at Microsoft UK”. As the youngest senior manager appointed at Thames Water I held the leadership position of Head of Marketing of a business serving 70m customers in 42 countries.
For Corporates, I provide Leadership, Management and Team coaching. During times of complex change, I can turn around engagement and transform culture.
For small and medium businesses I coach leaders and their teams, building a culture of happy, motivated people who ignite their brand. I also help navigate the moments of change from start-up to fast growth to becoming an established business.
Ethics and Professional Development
My Coaching practice is underpinned by an MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change (Distinction) from Henley Business School. As a professional Coach I maintain my ethical practice by attending regular Coaching Supervision meetings.
I continue to develop my practice through regular training courses and membership of the Henley Centre for Coaching.
