Commercial, pragmatic and highly focused executive coaching

"I have worked with Executive Coaching and particularly Geraldine for several years now, as I have made progress in my professional career it has been important to me that I ensure that I have the best support and guidance in place. Geraldine has most certainly assisted me in making sure that I get the best out of my career, she listens, pulls important thoughts out of you and makes sure that you bring it all back together to get clarity on you should be focused on. Geraldine has an excellent skill of making people feel comfortable so that they will open up and also telling you things that you may not want to but also making sure that you focus on your main skills and how to work round any weaknesses. I have sent several people to see Geraldine over the years and can see how her input has greatly assisted and enhanced these individuals as well. It has been a real pleasure to work with Geraldine and I thank her for all her help."
