About me


I’m an experienced leadership and sales coach, working with high profile organisations in the pharmaceutical and IT services sectors along with small enterprises.


I draw on a strong commercial background and 25 years working at executive level, through my role as Global Account Director in Vodafone, Head of Sales Capability and Executive Coach.  I design and deliver bespoke leadership coaching and team engagement programmes and workshops to facilitate and support lasting change in business performance.


My work is inspired by the groundbreaking work of the NeuroLeadership Institute; I am fascinated with how our brains are wired and how we can harness this natural power to achieve great success.  Clients tell me this sets me apart from the others they have worked with.  They also tell me that my strength is in my ability to blend an understanding of human needs at work with the demands of today’s businesses to deliver exceptional results for all.


My personal intent is to inspire and engage people and teams by taking simple, pragmatic, down-to-earth approaches that connect natural human strengths with strategic business requirements.  Working with human nature and not against it.  I’ve worked extensively at Board Level to prepare leaders for critical  performances, focussing on authenticity and story telling to create and embed messages that are memorable, actionable and resonate with the audience.  I work hard to quickly build trusting relationships that lead to lasting results.  I passionately believe that people do amazing things when trusted and feel valued and the foundation of my work is to link human nature with the needs of business and commercial success.


Professional integrity is of utmost importance to me.  As well as upholding the Association for Coaching code of ethics, I’m a member of the association as well as the British Psychological Society and NeuroLeadership Institute.


I hold a Masters Post Graduate certificate in Personal & Business Coaching and a Professional Diploma in Management Skills.  I was top of Vodafone’s Top Flight Academy with first class honours, as well as winning many awards including the prestigious Premier Club for coaching and leadership development.
