I am an executive coach specialising in developing talented women and also chair of a start-up food business based in France. At the start of my career, I worked in European and Global Human Resources roles with Shell. Following my MBA from IMD in Switzerland I changed function and industry and took on senior Sales & Marketing roles for Mars Chocolate, most recently as their Commercial Strategy Director. After a challenging return to work following my second maternity leave I decided to retrain as an executive coach supporting women to fulfil their potential. My coaching draws on my MSc in Occupational Psychology and I enjoy helping women to build their confidence, flourish in their careers and successfully integrate work within their lives. Originally from New Zealand, I now live in London and am a mother to two very energetic boys.
