I am a career coach, business and finance professional, a Fellow Chartered Accountant and Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute with 30 years of experience in corporate finance, global management consultancy and business management. I have provided career, education and business coaching and consultancy services to clients in the UK, EMEA, Asia, US and Africa. 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 with satisfying career pathways and successful businesses. I provide mentoring with expert knowledge alongside coaching to achieve goals using insights from varied experience and behavioural insights. I am an accredited Life Coach, with experience in psychometrics, career assessment and organisational management which supports my work.
My approach to mentoring is relaxed but focused bringing a variety of experiences 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 career or business strategy. Having worked as a career coach with various levels of experience, business executives and 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 experience in finance, higher education, engineering, IT (STEM), charity and media sectors. I am also currently a Career Mentor for the University of Reading and for the Inspiring Futures scheme.
As a coach and consultant, I have worked with start-ups, large organisations, small business owners and self-employed clients. A mentor for startups from professional services, technology to the third sector (charities), I can provide guidance from my own and client consultancy experiences.
