I’m a Business Coach, Trainer, Facilitator and Mentor specialising in helping you and your teams with yourself self presentation and communication skills.
I do this by removing the blocks that stop you communicating at your very best. Sometimes these are physical, to do with your breathing, your voice and your body language. Other times it’s psychological and I work with mindfulness and visualisation techniques to allow you to experience being fully present with your audience and message instead of letting your self undermine your leadership presence.
I help transform presentations from something you or your team members dislike or avoid into something you enjoy.
I have worked in broadcast media for over 30 years, mainly in the BBC, as a presenter in local radio and regional TV, as well as a producer, journalist and manager. I then moved into a senior editorial role in the national BBC Big Screens project. For my last 4 years in the BBC I also worked as an internal Executive Coach, working with a range of leaders.
Since leaving the BBC in 2013 I have built up a practice working with small businesses, corporations and individuals. I’m on the committees of both the Cheltenham branch of the Federation of Small Businesses and the Gloucestershire Institute of Directors, a member of the Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce, run my own womens’ leadership circle, the Cheltenham AAW (the Achievers’ Academy for Women) and work 8 days a month for the Growth Hub in Gloucester, where I also deliver mindfulness training and workshops. In addition I deliver pro bono mentoring for member businesses of the Growth Hub for start ups.
