Who am I?

I am a qualified coach with a degree in Social Science from University College Cork and a post graduate in Management from Guildhall University. After 15 years senior management experience in learning and skills, I launched my coaching and consultancy business in 2000.

I have since worked with government agencies, further and higher education institutions, local authorities, private sector companies and charities either as a coach, consultant or interim manager.

I have contributed to government policy on education, skills and training. I am the author of a number of local, regional and national strategies to improve the delivery of learning and skills.

I am an experienced career coach. I have successfully coached over 600 highly skilled professionals affected by the recession (Executive Directors of wealth management companies, journalists, bankers, local authority employees and third sector staff) (Case Study).

I have spent my professional life enjoying communicating with people to build their strengths and sense of purpose using a combination of management techniques and coaching approaches.

If you are interested in my work and would like the opportunity to discuss any areas in more detail, please contact me.
