It has been tranformational. It drew out what was in me. It made me challenge my fear and allowed me to find better ways of doing what I do.I enjoyed it so much that I would do it again. Abi and her team were excellent. Such skill, talent and awareness. I am blown away.
Challenging, emotional at times, reassuring, confidence boosting, empowering, thought provoking. Thank you for the opportunity to meet and make friends with other women in our business!
Head of Bid Management
Abi and her team are incredibly astute, their observations and feedback have provided genuine light bulb moments for me and made me recognise behaviours I would have otherwise been oblivious to.
Programme Support Manager
Transformational. The best course I’ve been on so far by a mile.
I think every so often a learning experience makes you re-evaluate, challenge and then make a leap which this really achieved.
Assistant Operations Director
You can tell that Abi is passionate! It really makes a difference.
Fantastic. Covered everything I wanted and so well. Feel energised and excited by what I’ve learnt. Such a supportive group of wonderful women and an inspiring course leader.
Media & Marketing Officer
A great way for anyone to learn and practice how to become a strong and confident leader.
Head of Marketing
Unexpectedly good and eye-opening
Really engaging. I’m feeling very empowered and inspired. Brilliant trainers!
Head of Communications
I thought it was a very useful course and everything contained within it did transfer directly into our working practice.
The best part of this course was that it was interactive and all exercises were completed with colleagues using real examples of what people were experiencing or had experienced in the past. It was not simply a – ‘to be a great leader you must do x,y and z.
This is the only course I have ever left and would be happy to go on again! To be able to remember the content as I still do after all this time is a testament in itself!
This course made a huge difference to how I manage upwards and downwards, and enabled me to see the bad habits I had got into and how to change them.
My managers have noticed a change in how I challenge and support them, one even said they feel like I really take time to understand what and why they have done what they have done, and that she doesn’t feel nervous about making a decision as she knows I will help her get it right next time; my support has a better effect for them and the business in the long run. Thanks this was the best course in terms of my development yet.
Abi has an engaging style of coaching, that will enable you to feel confident, authentic and much more effective.
She will work with you to develop a dynamic, creative partnership: bringing insight and expertise, encouragement and challenge. This makes for a safe and rich learning environment, where progress towards your goals can be rapid.

Confidence and Assertiveness
Interview Preparation and Going for Promotion
Transitioning into a New Role
All the above are bespoke programmes, designed to meet different needs and specific development areas.
There are a range of options:
Three Month Development Programmes; One, Two or Three Day Workshops
This is the ideal way for groups to really address issues and achieve transformation. Learning in this way allows participants to apply the learning to their workplace, in-between workshops. Follow-up workshops enable incremental development, which becomes embedded and fully sustained.
Typically ninety minutes to two hours long. This is a good way to focus on a specific skill, for groups who are pushed for time.
One to One
A typical session lasts for two hours. Three to six sessions is the ideal way to really deal with an issue.
