I really benefited from working with Robyn as a coach. She took the time to listen and understand what is important to me as I continue developing as a person and as a leader and tailored our sessions around this. I really valued the way Robyn drew from her applied experience as a business leader to help me work out how to best approach an issue.
Alongside Robyn’s business experience, she has deep knowledge of coaching psychology and I enjoyed learning about myself through discussion with Robyn about these ideas and through the practical exercises we did together. Robyn’s warmth and good humour make her a pleasure to work with.
