Annabel has not only supported me in gaining more clarity in how I can be more effective in my current role, but also guided me in getting a more holistic view of my future career options during a critical phase of my professional development. She has the ability to ask exactly the right questions at the right time to raise self-awareness and perfectly balances encouragement with progress checks to achieve the agreed outcomes.

It's rare that you come across standout talent like Annabel, who can have such a profound impact on your career in such a short time. I had the pleasure of being coached by Annabel as part of the New Entrepreneurs Foundation. I particularly appreciated the way Annabel immediately understood each situation, and her subsequent guidance. I thoroughly enjoyed every coaching session, and couldn't recommend her more! H. Malhi.
