What do our clients say

Claire White


"A lot happened in the coaching time frame that Claire had to deal with.  Real situations with true impact with Senior Leaders.  Claire took it all on with a lot  of grace and dealt with it and coached me throughout.  Claire is phenomenal, amazing, dedicated and helped me outside of normal hours.  Followed up and called me to check how I was doing.  She took on full ownership and responsibility for success.  From a personality perspective we are a great match, I'm difficult, very sceptical and she took that on board and paced me to make me open up.  I am very impressed.  Great communication and level of understanding - knowing when to push and when to pull.  A big thank you for proving it does work.  I am listening to people more.   I sense the change and lots of other people around me sense it too.  All very effective.  Nothing to add that can improve my experience – all brilliant.  I now want to be a coach too!"

Nermine, Senior Executive
