Testimonials

comma

Prior to Syntegrate, I had no experience with coaches, so I was not really sure what to expect.

After 25 years in business, with general management responsibilities for the past 12 of them, I always imagined the process as being too soft and too ethereal, to be practical, but, on the other hand, I knew and trusted Gill…and I needed the help as I was facing a crucial junction in my career.

The Syntegrate approach led me with amazing clarity and simplicity through a process of reflection on my history, values, ambitions and dreams, and landed in an internally consistent and cohesive life plan that I’m pursuing passionately now.

Thanks for bringing clarity, perspective and integration to the way I attack the future.

Gill is one of the most strategic thinkers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. One of her biggest strengths her ability to help people to stand back and look at the bigger picture. Her advice as we’ve been growing our start up business has been invaluable.

Gill’s blend of commercial perspectives and passion for reflecting on what this all means both for you as an individual and for your company has helped me and my team to structure not only our work lives but our personal goals.
