Coaching that Retains and
Progresses your Talented People

Many organisations lose their talent when people struggle to thrive. This loss comes at a significant financial, cultural and commercial cost which has an exponential ripple effect impacting trust, relationships and leadership confidence.

Group Talent Retention Programmes

I deliver Talking Talent bespoke Women in Leadership and Working Parents Programmes with global organisations. These Programmes have delivered exceptional retention results year on year and have been embedded into organisational strategy and culture.

One-to-One Talent Progression Programmes

The world of work is changing. Tomorrow’s high performing leaders need to be more agile, collaborative and adaptable than ever. I work with Senior Leaders enabling them to achieve sustainable progression in their roles.

Gender Inclusion Consultancy

I work with organisations in developing and implementing strategic gender diversity initiatives to optimise organisational performance and accelerate female talent through workplace inclusion.Enabling Inclusive cultures that drive belonging, engagement, performance.

I help Organisations
Retain their Talent

I have worked with a diverse range of organisations in Ireland, the UK, EMEA and the USA either directly or via my long standing relationship with Talking Talent. I work comfortably across cultures, genders, and generations working with people at all levels, including Board, Partner, EXCO and Senior Management.

I like to bring science and evidence-based approaches to my work in a simple-to-apply way that feels good, pragmatic and delivers results. I use a blend of techniques including Facilitation, Neuro Science, Emotional Intelligence, Clean Language, Archetypes, Symbolic Modelling, Transactional Analysis, Story Telling and Intersectionality.

I love to connect globally with industry experts and knowledge institutes. This allows me to keep my finger on the pulse of what is enabling the inclusive cultures that attract, retain and progress diverse talent.

What often holds organisations back is a complex web of systemic, cultural, and structural issues that must be fully understood before they can be overcome. A carefully considered, bespoke response is invaluable for business leaders committed to enabling gender balance in their organisations.
Research shows the key to creating better workplaces for all is to promote psychologically safe and inclusive organisational cultures with flexibility and support.

    Recently while delivering a programme l got asked a question ‘what is the difference between mentoring and sponsorship’.
