Cathy provided me with Executive Coaching to help develop a greater knowledge of my own capabilities. I developed a greater depth of leadership skills that has successfully seen me move to a new organisation and within 6 months progress my career to a more senior group leadership role.
I see great benefit in the insights Cathy can bring to individuals and teams. I highly recommend Cathy to any individual or organisation looking for leadership coaching.”
