Member of the Trusted Coach Directory
My work experience was gained in two very different parts of the world, and this multi-cultural exposure has informed and enriched my approach to individual coaching and to organisational development work:
The first 17 years were spent gaining invaluable corporate experience in Unilever Southern Africa, with exposure to market research, HR, union negotiations and talent management. In the last four years with Unilever I was Head of Management Development and Graduate Recruitment & Development for Sub-Saharan Africa.
My family and I relocated to the UK in 1999, where I worked as a Senior Training Consultant for three years with an Oxfordshire-based training consultancy. Thereafter I started my own business, specialising in people development consulting, management training and since 2012, in executive coaching. My coaching credentials were formalised in 2016 by gaining the Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching, with AoEC (Academy of Executive Coaching) in London. I have also earned full accreditation as a coach with EMCC (European Coaching and Mentoring Council)
I subscribe to the EMCC Global Code of Ethics in my coaching practice.
