Director of Membership – Adoption UK

I’ve been working with Donna for around six months and during that time she has really helped me to focus my energy and attention in the right areas to push forward and achieve the personal objectives that I had set for myself, with Donna’s help. Having the benefit of her calm and reflective approach has not only helped me be a better employee, but a better manager and to genuinely understand myself better.
To top it off, with the confidence and guidance that Donna has given, I successfully got a promotion in my role – even during a global pandemic.
Rob Langley-Swain

Regional General Manager, DHL Supply Chain

Steph, coached me through a career change following 17 years in the military. Collaborative, challenging and realistic, she helped me figure out what direction my professional life should take, make a plan to get there and, most importantly, kept me accountable to achieve it.

I particularly valued her candour and willingness to follow up with tough questions.

Phil Taneborne

Head of Trade Operations – Lloyds Banking Group

I’ve worked with Steph for 4 years and in that time she’s supported me through 3 role changes. She’s given me the clarity to make strategic decisions and the confidence to believe in myself. As I’ve gone through the change curve Steph has proved to be an invaluable sounding board. I value our sessions and would highly recommend Steph as a coach.

Hannah Alexander

Managing Director, ABCG

Steph’s astute commercial judgement, deep understanding of the learning process and rigorous attention to detail brought immense value to the project from start to finish. Her inclusive management style engendered great enthusiasm and commitment across the team culminating in delivery of a very successful programme. Steph is one of the most outstanding L&D professionals I have worked with.

Mike Ashton

Careers Manager, Warwick Business School

Stephanie practices exactly what she preaches! Stephanie delivered the keynote at the Warwick Business School DLMBA Careers Festival on “The importance of a personal brand” at the beginning of September 2019. 150 students, average age 36, comprising over 40 different nationalities from a range of sectors were captivated throughout!

In less than one hour, Stephanie managed to convey the importance of understanding strengths, values and interests in order to develop and articulate your personal brand via an excellent presentation interspersed with interactive group discussion.

Sarah Jackson

Senior Brand Marketing Manager, Missoma

I worked with Steph whilst our company was going through a period of rapid growth. Steph was kind, solutions driven and challenged me to find and adopt new ways of working.

I can absolutely say that I am a better employee and manager as a result of Steph’s training. Not only this, but she also helped me make great headway in to finding the elusive work-life balance! I cannot recommend Steph enough.

Kate Woods

Executive Director – Global Communications, Avon Cosmetics Ltd

Steph strikes a great balance of being supportive, motivational and realistic. She helps me to identify my strengths but she also holds me to account and challenges me. She has a wealth of tips and tricks and brings a variety of theory and models into play in a really practical way and uses her experience really effectively.

And importantly Steph is a pleasure to spend time with – easy to get along with and a great sense of humour. 

Natalie Deacon

Head Teacher, Kings College Primary

Thank you! After coaching sessions with Steph (one face-to-face and the rest via Zoom) I had re-focussed on my values and knew what I wanted to achieve. Steph’s advice was invaluable in boosting my confidence, self-belief and pushing me to be braver. Her key questions of “Why not?” and “What could happen?” along with her advice to “let go of the outcome” all really helped me question myself and push myself to explore new avenues.

After a maternity leave and a confidence knock, Steph helped me to pick myself back up and secure my dream job! I will be headteacher of a fantastic, child-centred primary school in sunny Spain where the values and organisational ethos align perfectly with my own. I can’t wait! Thanks again- I would highly recommend to other women at a crossroads or considering a new path. “Why not?!”

Marie Lally

Global Managing Director, Reed

I turned to Steph to help us with one of the senior leadership team’s within REED. We wanted to provide individuals with constructive feedback and a tailored development plan, whilst also improving how the team work together.

Steph listened to our needs and proposed a tailored approach to conducting a 360 degree appraisal exercise, aligned to our defined leadership attributes. She met our budget and time constraints, with the whole exercise being well received by all directors involved.

Steph is both knowledgeable and personable, and we will certainly be looking to work with her again in the future.

Ian Nicholas

SME Lloyds Banking Group, Area Director 

Stephanie delivered a superb session at our Growing Female Talent event. She understood the brief perfectly and delivered a great learning experience for all.
