A note from Gill

“I coach senior leaders and executives to make a success of their personal and professional lives. The clients I help are driven by a sense of achievement and feeling that they want to make a difference in the world. They want to continue to build a successful senior career where they reach their full potential. But equally important to them is achieving this in an integrated way that enables them to create and build a happy family and personal life too. In essence I help people define and design what their best life looks like, and forward plans and actions that lets them live it to the full. Through a step-by-step approach I help business leaders work to define and then live up to their personal potential and ultimately live an integrated best life”
