I started my coaching business in March 2012. The main reasons I moved from the corporate world to running my own coaching business were that I wanted to be in control of my own destiny and ensure that I didn’t miss any more of my kid’s childhood. Commuting 4 hours a day to/from London was taking it’s toll.
I found an increasing amount of pressure to choose between being a mum and having a career; I believe you can have both and am now hopefully a role model for other mother’s to show that it is possible. I am passionate about enabling people and businesses to be the best they can be and for me Business Coaching helps me to do that.
Seeing the success my clients achieve is extremely rewarding; securing jobs and creating new ones means that that success spreads through each community improving many lives.
My vision is to TRANSFORM BUSINESSES AND CHANGE PEOPLE's LIVES
This will enable all business owners to have the success they deserve; supported by engaged high performing teams with everyone enjoying the journey.
By living the values, building a relationship with my clients, meeting regularly and constantly challenging and stretching my clients they get great results.
Continuous improvement is very important to me; I have numerous qualifications covering a range of key areas such as Coaching, NLP, Learning and Development, a Social Science honours degree and an MBA all of which is backed up by solid commercial business acumen.
Most coaches do not have commercial and coaching qualifications/experience.
I am so confident in the business coaching that I guarantee to make more money than I cost within a year or I will refund the difference. Many people I meet are cynical about how coaching can help them – the guarantee means they have nothing to lose!
I have a unique combination of experience and qualifications in successfully developing people and businesses.
During my 13 years at Arcadia Group Plc I was a Buyer for Burton Menswear’s 3,500 stores managing a department with a £14 million turnover, I was also a Training Manager and refined systems and processes in all aspects of business including finance, imports, distribution and management reporting.
Since March 2012 I have worked with many business owners and managers in small to medium sized businesses across a range of industries including manufacturers, retailers, technology companies, legal service providers and consultants. My clients have won Best Client Results in the South East and Best Retailer in Europe
More recently I was developing organisational culture, individual and team skills for Europe’s largest construction project; Crossrail. I successfully developed and implemented many initiatives including competency frameworks, systems implementations, coaching & mentoring schemes, training programmes in personal, leadership and management excellence.
On average my clients get 30% increase in turnover and a 50% increase in operating profits, success means different things to different people; to some of my clients being able to take a 2 week holiday is as important than increasing profits – every business is different.
