My key services in Pursuit are the provision of high quality coaching and facilitation. My values are creativity, learning, professionalism and excellence. I have a very strong commitment to client service, authenticity and integrity.

I take industry ethics very seriously, which means you can be reassured of both quality and integrity in my work.  I regularly attend CPD events to update my knowledge and skills.

My passion for coaching started many years ago when I coached my own teams at work along with facilitating group sessions for others. See below for more on my background.

If you're a larger organisation looking for Experiential Learning, Team Away Days, or Talent Development programmes, I also work as a co-Director in Summit Human Potential Limited. We specialise in working with Leaders, Teams and Talent. Check out our website and services here.

My background, experience and qualifications

For 15 years I worked for one of the 'Big 4' world's leading professional services firms. With a successful career in Operations and HR, I was promoted twice. I recruited, trained and led several teams for over 10 years and at its peak, my team served around 1100 people from across the Assurance and Tax departments.

Before that, I worked for a small business as Office manager. This gave me an excellent opportunity to understand the challenges of working within a small business.
