EXECUTIVE ONE-TO-ONE COACHING
(Perfect for C-Suite / Board level Execs / Directors)
Strengthening areas such as presence, impact, leadership, decision-making, and creative and strategic thinking, executive coaching turns an exec into a true leader.
Learn to deal with the challenges of an executive or leadership role, and approach them with renewed confidence, self-belief and ability.
“Yvette’s real niche value is her ability to help clients develop strong self-awareness, enabling them to maximise their strengths and achieve their goals”
- Neil Morling, Chief Financial Officer, Olswang LLP
100-DAY TRANSITION COACHING
(Perfect for people of all levels facing a new challenge)
When you have invested time and money in recruiting the perfect candidate for the role, why not enhance the chances of their success and impact on your bottom line with a 100 day transition coaching programme?
It can take a senior executive 6 months to get fully up and running in a new role. The 100 day transition coaching programme can help you halve that time.
“Yvette’s programme was an incredibly worthwhile investment and instrumental in helping me focus, prioritise, overcome challenges and make a successful impact in my first 3 months”
- Commercial and Operations Director, Global Consultancy & Design Organisation
(Perfect for anyone looking for change or next steps in their career.)
Many highly skilled, ambitious and positive professionals suffer from a lack of engagement in the workplace. Maybe you have spent too long doing the same thing, or you feel you have lost sight of your path.
Career coaching can rekindle the passion for your work, put you back in the driving seat of your career, and prepare you for interviews, presentations, team management and more.
- Sian Whittaker, Commercial and Operations Director, Arcadis Group
(Perfect for any sized organisation seeking training and development for their leaders).
Workshops are tailored to meet your organisational objectives and can include delivery in the following areas:
Coaching Skills for Leaders: equips leaders in your organisation with the skills, knowledge and tools to coach others effectively.
Personal Brand: enables senior executives to understand and own their ‘brand’ and teaches them how to use it positively to increase their influence across the business.
Change: strategies and tools for leaders to enable effective organisational change.
Mindfulness for Business: In the fast paced corporate world where change and disruption are inevitable this workshop focuses on how to find space within this to make mindful and powerful business decisions.
MBTI: for teams who need to work closely together, this workshop improves communication and team dynamics.
- Emma Maslen, Managing Director UK & I SAP Concur
OPEN SPACE COACHING
(Perfect for gaining a fresh perspective)
Some clients benefit from being taken out of their typical daily work environment and find inspiration by being in nature. Studies have shown the positive and tangible effects of nature on clearing the mind, refocussing our thoughts, and acting as a catalyst for change.
Open Space Coaching takes the session to whichever environment best suits you – walking in the countryside, by the beach, or anywhere outside the normal setting – and allows the change of scenery to inspire self-awareness and natural progress.
- Charlie Nyren, Head of Sales Development, Bupa Global North America
(60-min coaching session before an important career event)
The Power Hour is dedicated to helping clients declutter and get into a winning mindset before an important meeting. It’s a time to organise thoughts, cement ideas, and narrow down outcome objectives to the most critical focus.
This session is delivered close to your event after all other preparation is completed. Because it is scheduled outside of the usual coaching structure, it is more dynamic, agile, and needs-based. This has proven to be transformational in the approach to some of my clients’ most important events.
“We all have those crunch moments when we need to make a big impact. Yvette’s Power Hour proved to be the perfect preparation, helping me turn ideas into a compelling story, considering how to pitch to different stakeholders and focussing on successful outcomes.”
- Michael Cervenka, Head of Future Technologies Group, Rolls-Royce plc
"As a French executive working for a large global American company it's important for me to be able to move comfortably amongst a broad range of styles and cultures. Working with Yvette has enabled me to break down my barriers, enhance my communication and impact and has taken my career to the next level."
"We all have those crunch moments when we need to make a big impact. Coaching sessions with Yvette proved to be the perfect preparation, helping me turn ideas into a compelling story, considering how to pitch to different stakeholders and focussing on successful outcomes."
"Yvette is a tremendous coach who can help you find your strengths and weaknesses, provide a practical plan for addressing improvement areas and help drive your career forward. Yvette has a gentle yet assertive approach to coaching which can tease out key insights and help you to understand things about yourself - which you probably already knew - but were afraid to admit. I have worked with Yvette now for a few years both personally and with my team. All of her coaching interventions have delivered great results in driving our business forward at SAP Concur, and for us all as individuals."
"I was introduced to Yvette to work on complex senior stakeholder relationships. The first key realisation for me was that the coaching process was about changing myself and not the outside world. We developed a great relationship and with Yvette’s persistent, challenging and engaging approach I was able to expand and refine my communication skills such that they are now second nature. I now feel equipped to enter any given situation and convey clear messages with confidence and maturity."
"I’ll admit, as owner and chairwoman of five companies and with a successful career in business under my belt, I wasn’t sure there would be a lot to gain from professional business coaching. How wrong I was! Yvette has a real knack of making you feel secure and able to open up about anything and everything and I found the entire experience both invaluable and cathartic. It’s fair to say that the one-to-one coaching I had over the period of eight months helped me get to a place in my life I have long wanted to be and I will miss the sometimes deep and probing conversation but most of all the, at times, hysterical laughter!"
"Yvette has an established track record in top end recruitment and a real ability to get the person behind the CV. This blending of her experience in recruitment together with her natural inclination to coaching creates a very purposeful business orientated combination. This means that she immediately grasps the need to show how she can add value - both to the individual and the company who is often supporting the coaching costs"
"I was recently promoted and embarked on the 100 Day Transition Coaching Programme with Yvette. I have found this invaluable in helping me to focus & prioritise my key objectives, overcome challenges and enable me to make a successful impact within the first three months. This has been an incredibly worthwhile investment and I would highly recommend the programme."

Welcome to the final article in a three-part series written in support of the Keep Britain Working campaign (you can find the other articles here). My aim in this article is to share with you some tips from my experience as a career coach and former recruiter in the hope that they help you to […]
Personal Brand – are you owning your story?
- May 13, 2020
Personal Brand is a term many of you will be familiar with, yet it can be so overused that it’s almost become cliché and can be often misunderstood. It isn’t a badge we slap on before a meeting, it’s a full on body suit that we’ve hand knitted ourselves out of our unique life experiences […]
Finding resilience to weather the storm
- May 05, 2020
Navigating a career storm can be a turbulent experience, when you don’t know what lies ahead. Most of us hadn’t even heard the term ‘furloughed’ until this year, now it’s something we hear everyday. It’s the new kid on the block, hanging out with ‘redundancy’ and ‘career uncertainty’. For many, this situation feels like our […]
“I understand what is expected in the business world and the challenges you face. I transitioned to become a professional business coach when I realised that building relationships and helping people achieve their dreams was the driving force that had made me successful.”
I often get asked why I became a professional business coach, and although there are many reasons, the sentiment is simple:
I get great pleasure from helping people reach their true potential in life.
With over 20 years’ commercial experience and a successful career in the corporate world, I understand what is expected in business and the challenges you face, and I’m here to help you navigate your own path with the success and satisfaction you deserve.
This might mean helping you develop powerful decision-making, leadership and strategy skills in order to achieve personal and organisational goals, or looking into patterns of behaviour that affect the way you interact with those around you.
Whatever your challenge, my belief remains the same:
YOU already possess all the tools to reach your full potential. I am simply here to help you dig deep and unlock them to perform better than you ever thought possible.
I specialise in working with executives and board-level clients from start-ups right through to global blue chip organisations and I am passionate about educating myself on the latest coaching techniques – I never stop learning new ways to work with my clients. I’ll be the first to admit that this journey can be challenging, but it is also extremely fulfilling, productive, and, ultimately, career and life changing.
I look forward to joining you on it!
