"Like never before, organisations and the people in them find the need to be adaptable, resilient and resourceful. At the AoEC we believe coaching serves that end like no other management skill. Nothing gives me more pleasure than helping our clients see that begin to happen.

I believe that coaching conversations, done well, create the conditions to unlock those attributes and ignite that resourcefulness for the benefit of all. I love to explore its potential with other leaders as they lead in uncertain times."

“I love being part of a team that delivers such value and a truly transformational approach to leadership development - whether that's seeing how the conditions we help create within organisations foster success, or helping individuals start or continue their journey as an executive coach. Working with such great thought leaders within the leadership and coaching space and seeing the benefits this can bring to both individuals and teams, is inspiring.”
