Coach and mentor to leaders, emerging leaders and staff teams mainly within the Public Sector, Social Housing, Health and Social Care and 3rd Sector.
Coach and Mentor to female entrepreneurs ‘difference makers’ – those who have a passion to make a difference in the world.
Supporting busy leaders to manage (not avoid) and motivate teams by developing new strategies and approaches.
My approach to business is practical and down to earth, helping you focus on business outcomes, and what’s going on in your head!
We can all spend hours and hours on Google finding out how to do something and yet find ourselves weeks later still not having moved forwards very much (nodding here?!)
This can be really disheartening.
When I work with you we not only focus on the outside – the tasks etc., we also work on the ‘inner game’ – your inner world; developing a “mind-set for success”.
I am very effective at getting beneath what holds you back from “going for it”; combining my analytical skills (some may call me a bit geeky!) with massive support and belief in your business and goals – I really want to ensure all my clients are supported and developed to achieve their potential.
As I mentioned above, my experience has shown me that a client’s mind-set is equally important, if not more, than business tools and models, and I have invested considerably in my skills as a coach and mentor to ensure that I achieve solid results that stick around!
Having had my own challenges with public speaking; I am expert at audience engagement and drawing out the “inner speaker” in every business owner and leader; I really don’t give much of a monkey how much you ‘um and ah’ what’s more important is that you get your message out there to share with potential client, groups and teams.
I guess it’s like buy one get one free with me – you get me as a mentor combined with me as an expert at drawing out you and your business message!

*1-2-1 Business Review
This is a 1 hour session where we get together (over a coffee – make mine a large one!) or by Skype and go through your business in detail. We go into the reasons why you are running your business and what your aims and goals are…what you are hoping to achieve? We look at your marketing, social media, web presence, advertising, branding and image. I will follow that up with a written report of my recommendations, along with a follow-on discussion with you. If I feel you need expert help, for example with your website with a web designer or that you need to talk to an accountant, I will give you the contacts. I do not know everything, but I can lead you in the right direction, and I will follow up to see how you are getting on and whether you need anything more.
*1-2-1 Business Assistance
If you require more personal and direct help, this may be a good choice for you. You might not know how to set up and build a database, and perhaps need to be shown how to use Microsoft Excel to do it. You may benefit from some help with using your iPad for business. You might want to go back to basics with social media and how or what to say, for your needs – your communication, maybe you want to go through your marketing planner ideas and campaigns etc.
