Sue Buckle


"Sue has been working with us to develop one of the key members of our management team in terms of his leadership skills. She has been a delight to work with, and the results of her coaching have shown genuine marked improvement in the individual concerned. We are truly grateful for her time, professionalism, and enthusiasm." Ian Priest, founding partner, Vallance Carruthers Coleman Priest (VCCP).


Following 20 years working as a self-employed recruitment consultant, Sue realised she was more motivated by helping people understand some of the underlying reasons for their unhappiness at work, and decided to gain some top-notch coaching training with CTI. Initially using coaching skills to enhance her recruitment skills, she now coaches people around leadership and impact, and helps people cope with promotion, redundancy, finding a new job or career, and has a real passion for helping people enjoy the hours they spend at work, and live life more fully and with more awareness, confidence and joy.

She has passed CTI's rigorous certification programme, and is an ACC and  member of the International Coach Federation. She is also trained in the Firework coaching programme, which helps people find new careers.

She has worked with some of London's most prestigious advertising agencies, such as VCCP, McCann Erickson, RKCR/Y&R, Souk, M&C Saatchi.
