Please note, we are always happy to supply specific references should you require them.
It has been great to have someone external to my organisation to coach me, both by offering a safe environment in which to test ideas and also by being away from day-to-day distractions. Cathy has been instrumental in helping me to "hold up a mirror" to myself in order to see myself as others do. The sessions have been both challenging and very rewarding; the benefits of our work together have been rapidly visible.”Principal & Actuary, Aon Consulting

I found the time I spent working with Cathy to be one of the best investments I have made professionally, and I’m glad to say I achieved my promotion.”Director, KPMG
