About Me

Leadership Consultant

I’m an international Leadership Coach and Trainer, working with women (mostly!) at work to help them to be confident, compassionate and innovative leaders. 

The clients I work with are compassionate, caring and empathetic people and this makes them exceptional leaders. The organisations I work with know their staff are essential to their reputation and success and so they value them greatly. We’re born into a world which sees feelings and emotions as weak. The world is changing and I’m empowering women in business to lead the way.
