I love people and I am passionate about supporting businesses on their journey to flourish. Having spent over 10 years growing my own business, I know how important it is to keep learning and to connect with together with others to share ideas, grow expertise and gain new perspectives.
I bring a wide range of professional knowledge and expertise from marketing to business planning and executive coaching. I combine this with new innovations gained through my studies and knowledge of mindfulness and insights in business. I’m a pragmatist at heart and very action orientated. I offer business owners the time and space to reflect, balanced with motivation and action.
My area of expertise is wellness and resilience. Now more than ever keeping business leaders and their teams well and resilient is crucial. We have all been living through a time of great change. It has been testing and many people are still making sense of their personal experiences and exploring ways to adapt to living and working well.
There are many inspirational moments, they usually occur in a coaching conversation when a client moves through a business block. It’s a moment where they find that rare personal insight that they need to make a difference and move forward. They are able to confidently own and embody the insight and it’s a joyful moment for all to experience!
The key challenges are different depending on the business sector. The North West experienced continuous lockdown measures during the pandemic. Overall, getting all businesses started again and helping them to adapt to change is a priority.
Making sure businesses are confidently resourced and resilient and can keep well is paramount. Business owners need to protect and care for their staff’s wellness, while ensuring the changing needs and expectations of their clients and customer are also met in order to keep the business strong and healthy.
