I am a business professional, a Fellow Chartered Accountant and Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute with 30 years of experience in the corporate finance and management consulting sectors. In the past 10 years, I have provided career, education and business consultancy services. This has involved a variety of coaching and consulting approaches tailored to helping people achieve their goals. My aim is to help clients achieve outcomes of satisfying career pathways and manage successful businesses. I provide mentoring with expert knowledge alongside coaching for confidence. I hold a Diploma in Life Coaching supported by specialist knowledge and professional experience in organisational management, business and education.
My approach to mentoring is relaxed but focused as I utilise coaching techniques and a variety of experience to support each client, with an extremely tailored approach. As an experienced career and business coach, I can provide structured guidance and a tailored development plan for your education, career or business strategy. Having worked with many young people and business professionals, I know how important it is to have support and guidance when making career decisions.
20+ years in founding and managing business ventures has given me the opportunity to develop insights and experience to advise others. I have coached and supported clients with professional CV preparation, finding opportunities, interviews (video and in-person), psychometric tests and assessments. I have supported clients with the recruitment process for large consultancy firms, employers in the finance, banking, engineering, IT (STEM) and media sectors. I am currently a Career Mentor for the University of Reading and for the inspiring futures scheme.
As a business coach and consultant, I have worked with start-ups, small business owners and self-employed clients from idea to launch and with business growth strategies. As a co-founder and mentor for startups spanning media to technology, I can provide guidance from experience as a management professional.
