Heres what some of our clients had to say....

“I loved your professionalism and your skill; the fact that you brought the whole of yourself, including the fun aspect. I enjoyed watching you draw everyone out, thus affirming them and allowing them to develop their own skills and personal style.”

Petra Kerridge, Counsellor in the public sector

“This is really a ‘can do’ course. Cathy directed the course and kept it on track, avoiding all digressions when they became unhelpful. She also had a very intuitive assessment of candidates which was very helpful.”


Douglas Brown, Manager, NHS Trust

“I was very impressed by the way Cathy responded swiftly and imaginatively to our specifications and impressed by Cathy’s skill and sensitivity. I think she is ideally suited to working with senior civil servants and imagine she would good at working with a wider range of people as well. She commanded respect by her professional competence, encouraged positive interaction by her warmth, sensitivity and determination and elicited responses by a whole variety of means, many of which are too subtle for me to describe.”

Amanda Finlay, Director, Legal Aid Strategy, Ministry of Justice

Something to think about

"Where exactly is the new input coming from if public - public partnerships are learning from each other?  A pragmatic and business orientated coaching approach is desperately needed, and that can only come from the private sector and not, I'm afraid, from academia."   Dominic Ashley-Timms
