Executive and Career Coach
My focus is on Executive, Career and Mentor coaching. Choosing the right coach is a life changing decision and it can be hard to know, without meeting, whether a coach is going to be able to assist you to achieve your business and career goals. Typically prospective clients meet with me for a 30 minute complimentary session which allows you to explore what you would like to get from your coaching and decide if myapproach will be beneficial to you – is the chemistry there? This complimentary session is normally done in person, on Skype or on the telephone.
