Meet Alison


“Alison’s coaching is insightful, warm, and – most importantly – very effective.

I spend my working week helping leaders and future leaders  to achieve the things that matter most to them right now.

Why? Because I’ve got to where I am now thanks to some truly remarkable leaders.

They believed in me, they gave me opportunities, they helped me to learn when things went wrong, and they were right beside me cheering me on when I succeeded.  They were inspiring and – above all – they remained true to their beliefs.

I also work with emerging leaders, students and those early in their careers.
