Prior to starting this business, I spent 16 years at Mars Inc with a career spanning both the commercial and people side of the business.  Whilst at Mars I took a sabbatical to raise money for charity, gain perspective and learn about my limits.  I took part in a challenging round the world yacht race, spending a year at sea.  Prior to Mars I worked with a charity called Venture Trust, my role there was to support the personal development of young adults, our client group were referred through social workers.  I have just finished an MSc in Executive Coaching.  I believe my broad experience, willingness to be brave, honest and vulnerable and my ability to gain clarity on my clients needs enables me to help people meet their potential.

 

How I Work With Clients

Discover
I spend time with you diagnosing what the need is.  The root cause need, not just the presenting issue.  To really make a successful and long lasting change it is important to get this right.  

Develop
Taking into account the need, the culture and the people, I then work with you to develop the right intervention if it is a team.  Or through coaching I will support your development journey.

Succeed
Whether it is getting to a valuable outcome from a meeting, having changed a behaviour through coaching or having better trust in a team, I will also support you to create a plan which continues to embed the success.

“I found this experiencing really supportive and a true ‘coaching’ session, whereby you asked simple open questions which helped me find the answer for myself. There was also a sense of relief that I had eventually come to a decision around my ambition and made me comfortable with facing into the question, and reconciling this with myself and that the answer I came to was neither a ‘right or wrong’ but merely a big decision.”
— Danny, Channel Manager, Mars Inc
