Annie listened, didn’t judge and asked the right questions that helped me to get the answers I needed. She kept asking questions until she was happy I had made the breakthrough in my thinking/understanding. Exceptionally clever and patient, Annie is also kind, a great quality that builds the trust you need to make coaching effective. I’m blown away with how much Annie has helped me. I’m much less reactive and I work harder preparing for high profile tasks. I’m organising my time better and I now have clearer focus in meetings due to better preparation. It has really been an enlightening experience and one I would recommend. Thank you Annie, you have made such a difference to my work life!”Director Customer Services, Admiral Insurance

It also provided me an opportunity and structure to explore and evaluate ideas.”Pharmaceutical Consultant
