Our Coaches

What kind of coach do you need?

Career Coaches help you with branding yourself for your next step forward (and up!). They might help you work out which way to proceed at a career crossroads, and they help you look your best on paper, online and in interview.

Executive Development Coaches help in skills development. That could be communication, team leadership, stakeholder engagement, specific technical areas or something else altogether.

Programs are via video call with your webcam, so your coach effectively comes to you, with cost and time savings.

To get the process started or to find out more information, please submit the form below and we’ll be in touch to arrange a call.

Gender Gap Gone Executive Coaches are generally in high demand, so you may need to wait some weeks to get a space in a diary. Or you could get lucky and find we have a last-minute spot!
