I’m an APECS Accredited Executive Coach of 18 years experience who has helped over 200 senior managers, directors and C-Suite executives develop their leadership and teams to enable change and deliver results. My mission is to help leaders and leadership teams be the best they can be so they, in turn, make the biggest positive difference for themselves, their people and society. I help leaders and their teams to reach new levels of performance and satisfaction, creating a trusted and confidential space where people can explore their challenges, be they personal or organisational.
In evaluations the top things my clients have reported benefitting from are: improved relationships, improved leadership, increased self-confidence, better emotional self-control better preparedness, improved communication, improved influencing skills and reduced stress. The thing that really makes a difference, and what I observe, is that clients become aware of how to be more their true selves, and not the person they’ve been told to be, or unconsciously programmed to be. This is what releases the potential that is there.
I’m dedicated to delivering measurable results and here are some client quotes of business benefits:
”An increase in profit of £0.5m this year and estimated increase next year of up to £1.5m.”
“We’ve released tens, if not hundreds of millions ($) of additional value because of the coaching.“
“Impact on relationships has been immeasurable. I estimate several hundred thousand dollars of extra value, in reduced resource duplication, speed to market, and lower cost early stage modifications.”
“We’ve delivered more in six months than in the previous two years, despite being in a heavy period of change. On a very straightforward analysis we’ve saved £1.9m in 9 months.”
“Improvement in CRM performance – currently running at 5% over target. Approval for additional investment in transformation programmes of £14m with benefits of £48m over 5 years.”
My coaching is built on many years of commercial experience in the technology, media and telecoms sectors. Graduating from Edinburgh University with a BSc in Psychology, I started a thirteen-year sales career working for both large multinationals and smaller start-up ventures, where my expertise was building strategic relationships and breaking into new markets. My last commercial role was a start-up, developing an online joint venture with one of the world’s largest publishing houses.
I made the transition to coaching leaders and teams in 2001, and have since developed a multidisciplinary, client-centred approach with a strong foundation in psychology and neuroscience. Clients tell me that they value my practical and pragmatic approach.
I’m a member of the Association of Coaching and subscribe to their joint global code of ethics. Like any professional executive coach, I undergo regular supervision.
