About Louise

A successful track record in senior management.

25 years as a Sales Director with international experience

A successful track record in senior management working for high profile media groups - Hachette, Eurosport and News Corporation, I was trained in managerial agility.   

 

As an Advertising Sales Director - my specialty was building up operations from scratch, leading teams and driving revenue.   A sales specialist, I was trained in driving strategy, communicating with clients and managing sales teams.  This experience is key to my own development of communication and soft skills now used in coaching.

 

I also have international experience managing teams in Paris, London, Singapore and New York.   I have an international background and an understanding of the demands of working in a multicultural environment.

 

Having been a manager myself as well as a team player gave me vital training and experience to fulfill the role of coaching senior executives.

 

It is this hands-on corporate managerial experience that I now bring to the coaching and mentoring of my clients.

 
 

My vision of Coaching

 How I work

Tailor made Coaching Solutions

I fully understand the demands of an international role.  The loneliness of being a leader.  The demands of being operational in a new role and an unknown city.  The stress of an important interview, or a major pitch or presentation.    The need to have a coach and someone on your team in this period of transition. 

 

Coaching for me is a powerful intervention where we work together in a place of confidentiality – a safe space far away from a busy life and the demands of the diary. 

 

A privileged moment together where the client/coachee can stand back with their coach and examine daily life/behaviours and decide on actions for greater performance back on the pitch.  It can be just a tweak which can make all the difference for performance.

 

To accompany a client to develop their knowledge and skills is at the heart of my coaching practice – always striving with empathy to maintain a balance between the desired results and the well-being of my clients.
