International Executive Coach
I have had a successful commercial career, mainly with ICI / AstraZeneca, in the chemicals / agrochemicals industry and Sainsbury’s Supermarkets (Retail Performance Director). I have over 20 years UK and international line management experience in sales and marketing, research targeting and transformational supply chain project management roles.
I worked as a business strategy / performance management consultant for Deloitte and The Balanced Scorecard Collaborative, leading projects to improve customer service, processes, employee commitment and business profitability.
I have worked and coached in a variety of sectors including: agrochemicals, automotive, banking, biotechnology, beauty, broadcasting, brewing, communications, construction, industrial chemicals, music, mass media, pharmaceuticals, retail, real estate, space research, sports and travel. Also computer / financial / professional / internet / IT products & services.
Coaching on global corporate programmes
Since qualifying as a Professional Business Coach in 2002, I have worked on coaching programmes for clients based all over the world including America, Asia Pacific and Europe. I have over 4,000 hours of experience, successfully coaching senior executives from over 30 countries to develop their leadership capabilities, improve personal, team and business performance.
Coaching to C-Suite / Executive Committee level
I have coached to accelerate career development at all levels from high potential leaders to the full range of executives at local, regional and global C-Suite / executive committee levels:
Chief Executive, Chief Commercial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Finance Officer, Senior Vice President, General Manager, Managing Director etc.
Stakeholder Centered Coaching. Transformational leadership behavioural change
I have developed a 17-year track record coaching already successful executives to achieve positive, measurable change in their leadership styles and behaviours and accelerate their career development. I have been accredited as one of only seven Master Coaches worldwide for Stakeholder Centered Coaching (Marshall Goldsmith) and completed over 2000 stakeholder interviews. I am a Master Practitioner in Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP). I combine these two areas of expertise to support executives to achieve transformational behavioural change that is sustained long after their coaching programmes have been completed.
