As the founder, I have over 25 years of international business experience including 15 years as a career coach helping many professionals reach their career goals. I specialise in midlife career coaching and have also developed a program supporting organisations to improve their intergenerational team performance.
I uprooted my career and personal life a few times myself by changing career, starting new businesses and moving countries and within countries. These life experiences enhanced my adaptability, self-awareness, resilience and above all my self-starter skills.
In 2018 I gained my Masters in Career Management which focussed on the ageing workforce.
I am a Registered Career Professional of the Career Development Institute and a Non-Executive Director since March 2018 with an emphasis on expanding their private practitioner membership. I am a Certified Trainer for Core Quadrants working with the model core quadrants for identifying each individual’s core strengths, their pitfalls, challenges and allergies. Early 2021 I will be offering workshops and certified training sessions within the UK. A separate page will be set up for more background information and registration.
As a CDI Board member I am also sitting on the ICCI Global Council, representing the United Kingdom.
Associate coaches are brought in to help deliver programmes or add specialist expertise in specific areas where needed. All have extensive career coaching experience combined with business backgrounds gained in the UK or internationally.
