“Julie was my coach for a period of 6 months. I can highly recommend her. Her relaxed and personal approach created a safe environment where we could discuss important aspects of my life head on. Conversation flowed. She listened but also offered her opinions when I wanted them. I came out of each meeting buzzing with ideas and especially towards the end of the 6 months a real clarity as to where I wanted to go. Most importantly she gave me confidence; I believe she really understood and ultimately believed in me.” Rupert Finch, Johnson Matthey
“Julie was my executive coach for a period of six months during a very difficult and challenging time at work. She helped me to manage my stress levels, gave me space to think again and asked pertinent, thought provoking questions that made me think of new ways I approached work. I would highly recommend Julie, she is very approachable and she will constructively challenge to help you reach your goals when she needs to.” Nicola Willis, HRD – NatCen
“I asked Julie to design and facilitate an away day for our team of talented Editors. It was time for us to set some new goals and challenges and we wanted someone who could help us focus, plan and thrash out how we would deliver what we needed to. Julie created the perfect framework for the day and atmosphere to make that happen. From discussing our needs, through to following up, Julie was professional, inquisitive, challenging and engaging. I’d recommend her without reservation.” – Owen Ferguson, Product Development Director, Good Practice
“Thank you for everything – you are an Inspiration” Feedback from Global Talent Team, following delivery of 5 day leadership development programme, Amsterdam.
“I really noticed how a) you helped us all keep going in a positive direction rather than getting stuck or going off on red herrings, and b) how you didn’t ‘distort’ our natural dynamics ie people were conversing openly and didn’t feel inhibited by the presence of an ‘outsider’. I know everyone came away from it feeling positive, and I think in large part this is down to you. “ –Board member, Global Not for Profit Team Away Day
