A unique depth and mix of experience and perspectives combined with a flexible coaching approach to help address your specific needs. 

Business background:

I have been focused on leadership, executive and management development for the past 10 years with well over 2000 hours of client coaching. My prior business experience spans 25 years, including 18 years in equity markets with Goldman Sachs, UBS and others, as well as a senior strategy management role in industry and consultancy in venture funding.

In addition to my own coaching practice, I work regularly with the Executive Education faculty at London Business School and as an associate coach with several leading coaching firms.

Style:

My coaching style is reassuring, positive, pragmatic and future-focused, tuning the level of challenge to suit each individual in the most productive way. You can read more about my approach and the coaching process by following the links.

My facilitation work with teams and groups is highly interactive and typically includes a mix of ‘right brain’ (vision, motivation, creativity, relationship) and ‘left brain’ (learning, planning, accountability, actions) aspects – all with bespoke design for your team’s context and objectives.

I believe strongly in every individual’s potential to ‘make a difference’, and how they and their teams can perform at much higher levels when clarity, confidence, motivation and commitment are in place.

Professional coaching:

As a member of both the International Coach Federation (ICF) and Association for Coaching, I subscribe to their codes of professional practice and have regular 1:1 supervision, as well as mentor and peer co-coaching. I draw on a range of approaches and techniques as appropriate for each client and context. My coaching qualifications include:

  • Professional Certified Coach (PCC), with the ICF
  • Certificate and Diploma in Coaching (Coaching Development)
  • various certificates and accreditations in NLP, Clean Language, Systemic and Relationship Coaching, Transactional Analysis

Personal:

I first met my partner Deborah when reading Biochemistry at Oxford, and we are very lucky to have three wonderful sons now in their 20’s. I have always enjoyed learning, science, business and current affairs, a wide range of music, cricket and, more recently, tennis.
