"I was a bit sceptical about coaching before having it but I think it was really useful. Alison was great. Really nice and I felt like she genuinely cared about me and my success. It helped that she knew my industry and she was able to give really useful advice in a way that made me believe in myself and feel empowered. I’ve already recommended her to other people and will continue to do so and I hope we get the chance to work together again in the future!"

"Rod was without doubt the most articulate speaker that we have had join us in 2017, and has certainly left a memorable impression on how to approach a new career after significant change. I would strongly recommend his coaching style for both individuals as well as groups. Speaking from personal experience, over the past 13 years, Rod has at all times been dependable, honest and inspiring with those that he interacts and works with."

"Alison is an excellent coach. Clearly experienced in a wide variety of business areas, she brings her knowledge, expertise and training into play with exciting results. After just three sessions, I went from wavering on the brink of a plethora of tricky decisions to taking decisive and effective steps in some key areas of my life and career with a new sense of conviction and entitlement. Plans have been made and followed through. Other things have been shifted to lower priority, and I feel infinitely more focused and clear about my goals. I would highly recommend Alison’s services."
Lucy Martin, Business Owner
"After four years in my current role I needed a career change. Rod came at the problem with a fresh perspective and cut through the fog. What did I value most in life? What kind of person did I want to be? From there we were able to map out a plan for what I needed to do over the next 12 months to make that happen. Rod made quite a daunting prospect seem perfectly manageable. Having a practical plan that I can work from has taken much of the fear away from making such a big change. I would highly recommend him."

Alison is obviously very experienced, extremely capable, a real pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend her services."

Kate Birtles, Customer Experience
"I had coaching sessions with Alison when I was considering changing career. I was unhappy in my job, but felt daunted by making a change – I didn’t know which way to turn or how to get there. Alison’s help was invaluable. She is friendly, down to earth, and a great listener. Most importantly, she helps you to break things down so that you can find the answers yourself. She also helped me to tackle my fears about actually making the change. I am immensely grateful to Alison for her help and would highly recommend her as a coach."
