Pouring Coffee

Hey there!

Being a boss can be tough - I get it. But that's because nobody has ever shown you "how". How to lead with powerful and infectious self-confidence, deep kindness, unquestionable trust. Can you even magine that? How to be human without anyone taking advantage because everyone who works with you, respects, trusts and admires you, and yes, even when you're delivering those oh so difficult yet vital conversations. It is all possible, and I know it because I am it, 25 years of leading in challenging times, where I never once lostmy moral compass and ALWAYS remained highly effective and positively successful. Let me show you how by allowing me to be the leadership mentor and coach you've never had yet always wanted.

Who am I?

A 25 year experienced Financial Service Leader turned Leadership and Difficult Conversation coach. Having successfully and respectfully led and coached teams of hundreds of happy and efficient people to be their very best both personally and professionally. Having recruited thousands. Having built a new-to-industry consulancy for a leading law firm. Having led in the 2008/9 Global Financial Crash. I have many skills and expertise areas: I am a risk manager, data analytics geek, Programme Director, Project manager, process designer, quality assurance manager, mortgage advisor, financial services regulation and compliance obsessive, boundaries creator and communicator kinda girl. I am recently diagnosed Autistic (huge shock, but equally, not so much now I understand the nuances better...). Described as "The Poster Girl" for making autism work for a high powered and high profile career. Northern, straight-talking, dog loving, nature obsessed, psychotherapist in training with hypnosis and meditation skills! Firmly, and by choice, I have no biologically birthed by me children, but I do have two step-children who form a huge part of my learning and growth - we can LOADS from bairns (and animals and nature) IF we pay attention. A feminist but NOT misandrist. And general all round, know you can have everything you want in life with the right fine tuning...
