"At a time in my career where I felt I’d reached a crossroad, I found the coaching sessions immensely beneficial in making a life changing decision! Working with Jo has really helped me see the bigger picture, at various times taking me well out of my comfort zone, giving me the tools, and asking the right questions in order for me to unlock my inner drivers, many of which I’d not thought of for many years. Jo has helped give me real clarity around the decision I had to make."
Kathryn Luke, Marketing Manager, Shop Direct, (Digital Retailer).
"Jo is a talented, insightful and highly effective coach.
Jo has a true gift in knowing when to listen and when to ask the right question to unlock blockages. She doesn’t hold back from asking the tough questions and sharing her powerful and challenging insights.
I heartily recommend Jo if you are looking for a coach who will help you identify and make the choices you need to make to get you where you want to go."
Andy Powell, Management Consultant & Interim Managing Director.
"Jo transformed our team!
Before Jo supported us, we would probably have been categorised as a "pseudo" team; a group of people with no clear understanding of how to channel our collective skills effectively to achieve common goals.
With Jo's interventions and coaching we developed an extreme level of connectedness which resulted in a joined up way of working. Without doubt, Jo's coaching transformed us into a high performing team!
I would recommend Jo to any business looking to get the very best out of their people!"
Doreen Shearwood, Regional Sales Manager, Brakes Group, (Foodservice).
"I have worked with Jo on a number of occasions. Jo is always enthusiastic, energetic and creative, someone who has the ability to deliver on business objectives. Jo has the creative ability to design and deliver, engaging, fun and well planned learning experiences. She has a fantastic personality which is infectious and very personable, this always shines through when she delivers or facilitates training sessions. Jo is a highly effective leader, comfortable in all environments, no matter how pressured or strategic. She is passionate about people, having the strength in personality to interact, direct and coach senior managers and executives. Jo is also a great sounding board and one of my 'go to' people, as she often coaches me and my colleagues to stimulate alternative solutions or ideas. Jo is highly professional, hardworking and just great at what she does."
Richard Palentine, Independent Change Director, Brakes Group, (Foodservice).
"Jo's real strength comes from her deep understanding of people and what it takes to get them to change their behaviour. Importantly, Jo operates in the real world rather than a land of theory, and therefore builds concrete plans that actually make a difference. Working on Britvic's Value Organisation programme, Jo created a comprehensive change plan across multiple functions, worked with a difficult and complex group of stakeholders to gain their support, and delivered it to each part of the business in a way that was meaningful for them. I would also add that Jo's personal brand of positivity and enthusiasm makes her a tremendous asset to any organisation."
Chris Hancock, Strategy Director, Britvic Soft Drinks (FMCG).
"I have no hesitation in recommending Jo as a Change Consultant, following a very successful period of working together on a large scale commercial change programme. Jo has a natural ability to view and assess change through the eyes of the receiver, and ensure the whole team at all levels are considering how to maximise the positive impact of the change. She is able to take on new challenges without hesitation and operates effectively both within and outside her comfort zone. She brings a great balance of hard work and humour to any team."
Martin Branham, Director of Commercial Change, Britvic Soft Drinks, (FMCG).
