Quote from a computer company CFO Global Accounts, after the first six months of his VP line manager's coaching programme: 

Diane, what have you done with him? 
I wouldn't have believed such changes were possible in such a short time. It is evident that this coaching programme has been a good investment from the financial point of view. Please keep doing whatever you are doing!

Diane Vere: International Executive Coach

Welcome to my website!

Track record coaching senior international executives to achieve their career potential
I am a Master Coach with a 16-year track record supporting executives from over 30 countries in major corporate companies, to make transformational changes to the way they behave and operate as leaders.  I combine a powerful, stakeholder centred approach, proven with executives worldwide, with Master Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) skills and experience. so changes are sustained long after the coaching programmes have been completed.

Successful commercial business background
I established Beyond Performance Limited in 2002, after a career in commercial management and consultancy with ICI, AstraZeneca, Deloitte, Sainsbury’s Supermarkets and The Balanced Scorecard Collaborative. I understand the pressures senior executives face in multinational companies, having had similar challenges in my own experience.

Results oriented
I coach leaders to achieve progress against both their personal development and business goals. Results often far exceed beyond performance expectations. 

Passion for excellence. Supportive but challenging style
I have strong personal values: trust, integrity and a passion for excellence. I am always striving to develop my coaching capabilities.  I have a supportive style and I bring warmth and humour to my sessions to make the coaching experience enjoyable, as well as practical and productive. I also know how to deliver tough challenge when required!

London base. Global network
I am based near London. I coach in person in the UK and Europe and all over the world via phone/video. I belong to a variety of global coaching networks and I am constantly developing my expertise by connecting with my international colleagues. When requested by clients, I introduce them to other highly experienced executive and specialist coaches with the same values and passion for excellence. 

Please contact me to arrange a meeting to discuss your executive coaching requirements
