"Sarah provided the facilitation for a talent management assessment centre, at which I was an assessor. I found her style highly professional but also warm and personal, with great use of humor. Sarah is an extremely skilled 'people person', very adaptable, a gentle steering style but more directional if needed. Sarah has also provided personal coaching for several people I work with closely and without exeception they find her creative, supportive and again, adaptable to their needs. Highly recommended."
Kate Lee, Strategy Director for the British Red Cross.

The challenging goals I had hoped to meet as a result of being coached by Sarah have been surpassed, so I'm continuing to seek her valued support, and recommend her to others wanting to grow professionally and personally."
Martyn Dicker, HR Manager, British Red Cross
