Lindsey was recommended to me by a friend who had used her services to get her job. Following redundancy, a career change and not attended an interview for 20 years I was in need of help. Lindsey took the time to get to know me and what I now wanted for the next stage of my life. Lindsey was there for me from CV profile to job searches and interview techniques. Within 3 weeks I had 2 interviews and now have a dream job. I am more than happy to recommend Lindsey to anyone seeking coaching for new career direction. Thank you Lindsey.
I have worked with Lindsey for 2 years, where she has taken the role of coaching me during a period of career change. I have been developing a specialised, strategic marketing and communications consultancy business. Lindsey always takes a professional approach. As a coach she simultaneously allows you to develop and explore your own immediate topics, whilst challenging you to dig much deeper for the answers that a given situation might require. In my case this has yielded a much more confident individual, who can try different initiatives in order to find out what works. Lindsey also provides an excellent objective, business experienced sounding board for these new initiatives. Especially as an owner operator, this is provides further valuable exploration space, whilst ensuring that the main goals remain adhered to. I can reflect on 2+ years of consistent development, a business which has direction, and a personal focus and motivation, which would not have had its current progression without Lindsey's valuable contribution.
Lindsey has provided me with the building blocks to turn around my career in a variety of ways since October 2015. Currently a Packaging Consultant to the consumer goods industry, I have gained tangible benefits from engaging with Lindsey, by completing relevant training as well as securing numerous meetings with businesses, by planning short term goals that have created cumulative motivation for me week after week. Lindsey appears to ‘get under the skin’ of situations I have presented to her, and as such has been instrumental in sharing techniques enabling me to apply a positive approach as well as practical support ahead of my next venture – fulfilling a 6 month interim role in Switzerland, which I am sure will open more ‘European doors’. Going forward, I am positive that I will be able to retain and utilise many of the tools with which I am now equipped - .e.g. challenging myself – what’s the worst thing that can happen.?, and equally, can pass on a snapshot of the learnings I have gained, to others in my network who are seeking support.

I worked with Lindsey for about a year as my executive coach when I was new to being a CEO. She helped me understand the shift I needed to make from being a competent manager and director to becoming a leader and a CEO. Her approach was not just academic about how I needed to act but instilled in me how it feels to be a leader and set the tone and vision for my company. I now understand that some great leaders are born, but most leaders can be grown. This realisation and the constant reinforcement through monthly meetings allowed me to change my mindset, adjust the direction and strategy of the business to deliver the outcomes I needed for my shareholders. I recommend anyone trying to jump the gap from management to leader to work with Lindsey. John Bradshaw, Director
