I am passionate, first and foremost, about supporting women in leadership roles. Having worked my way up to a Chief Executive in a business with 1500 people and £70m turnover, I have recognised the pitfalls and challenges that often means we find ourselves having to work that bit harder than our male counterparts.

I’ve decided that I would like it all as a working mum and defined what this means for me. After all, success is personal, and it depends what you want. I have two sons, 14 and 10 and on returning from maternity leave was told by everyone ‘I could work my way back up’. I did but I don’t want other women to have to accept this and I want to support them in managing this.

In the last six months, my eldest son is an elite sports man and was offered a fantastic opportunity. What is a mum to do? Support him and give him that opportunity. So, I have left my six-figure salary and run my own business offering HR advice and support. I can work flexibly, and I am a lot happier. This is my version of success.
I write about the reality of the obstacles of face women working such as the Glass Cliff and promote greater diversity in senior roles. I coach and mentor women to help them be the best they can be. I openly share my mistakes with the hope that it will help others in their career and give them a step up.

I love this quote from Marissa Meyer, CEO of Yahoo!

“I always did something I was a little ready not to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s a moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this’.”

Women often doubt their capability and research has shown they have a reticence in applying for jobs focussing on what they can’t do. Interestingly, men focus on what they can do. Business coaching provides the opportunity to change this mindset and be the best you.
