It takes a huge leap of faith to achieve your big goals. In 2013, I took that leap and left my career as a marketing director to set up Be You Talks.
What motivates me is helping change-makers and their businesses to excel and find a way to align their personal and professional purpose to achieve growth and deliver a positive social impact.
When I set up Be You Talks, I wanted to address issues affecting self-confidence so Be You Talks began life as a series of events tackling an issue that was close to my heart – women’s body image and ways in which women could boost their confidence.
The first sold-out event was a rip-roaring success, but the real validation came four days earlier when I opened The Guardian to find a double-page spread celebrating my ‘little’ event.
By being my true self, following my gut and bringing my ideas to life, I realised I was able to have a big impact – and I know you can do the same, too, by being your best YOU.
We spend a great deal of time trying to fit into roles, we’ve been given, even roles we have chosen – but if we take the role out of the equation and reveal our true selves, this can be a liberating and enlightening process.
A certified NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) Executive Coach, I work with ambitious, driven clients to achieve exceptional performance by nurturing the power within us to be inspired and inspirational.
Together we will uncover your conscious and unconscious barriers for personal growth and hone in on your strengths, staying focused on your zone of genius to unlock your full potential and achieve your highest goals.
Through my unique inquisitive, nurturing and vitalising style of coaching, I ensure you succeed on your own terms. You will dig deep in order to align your values with your goals and deliver the impact you desire.
Be You Talks coaching programmes empower you to reignite your fire within – which can often be lost amid the pressure of the day-to-day grind – my coaching programmes enable you to move forward with a positive outlook, offering ways for you to prioritise your ‘big goals’.
