Let’s talk.

Combining coaching expertise with our first-hand experience of designing talent management processes, we take a pragmatic, straightforward approach that aims to solve individual problems – not change the world. We are passionate about supporting that large group of women who are competent, deliver and perform, but who are often overlooked and may not have access to coaching and mentoring. We also help women leaders to refine their leadership behaviours and create a strategy for success.

Understanding what helps or hinders career development

Many organisations have talent management processes, but these are rarely transparent, leaving employees unclear where they stand on career advancement. According to a 2018 PwC Report – ‘Time to talk – What has to change for women at work’ – women (and men) want more...

How to flourish in a male-dominated team

Senior women often find themselves in a male-dominated team where the rules of engagement are hard to navigate. They experience subtle, and not so subtle, competition from colleagues. They can be criticised for sounding too emotional when they speak up on a topic. And...

Men are from Mars – and they usually get paid more

To many women, publication of gender pay gap figures simply confirms what we already knew – that men are typically paid more than women, and men are more likely to be promoted into highly paid roles, reinforcing the stereotypical view of a boardroom full of men in...

I found Emma to be quite remarkable and for me was extremely effective. Her methods are subtle, and I would struggle to explain how she did it, but my outlook on my career, and my approach to work and the company I worked for, was quite literally transformed after just one session. I got involved with areas at work I never had been before, and I became a lot more positive about my career and about recognising the opportunities that had always been in front of me. I had initially been quite resistant to coaching – the sessions had not been my idea – and I probably wasn’t the easiest person to encourage in our first session! But Emma is wise and calm, but also quite persistent and challenging, in a way that was nonthreatening to me and very empowering.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Emma while being coached by her during the beginning of my MBA program at WBS. Emma is an outstanding executive coach, displaying deep experience in coaching and mentoring techniques. Her ability to effectively empathize with her coachees allows the creation of a solid and trusted collaboration, resulting in concrete "food-for-thought". I´d not hesitate to recommend Emma as Executive Coach.

I definitely felt coached by someone professional, intelligent, kind and knowledgeable with excellent listening and ‘real time’ processing skills. Trudy encouraged me to think more critically and constructively about myself and empowered me to free my thoughts from my perceived ‘norm’. I felt nurtured and very much central to the experience.
| Development Co-ordinator
I am very happy to recommend Emma. We engaged with Emma as a careers coach for staff at Goldsmiths, University of London and are very happy with the service she provides. Emma is credible, professional and very genuine. Our staff respond very well to Emma's coaching and her experience in this area certainly comes through. It is also very easy to work with Emma from an operational delivery perspective. She is trustworthy and interactions are very straightforward, which is a real bonus for a busy OD team! All in all, It has been great working with Emma. 
I found Trudy very insightful, intelligent and an engaging coach. She is a great listener and is proactive about offering a view, which I found very helpful. She is also really good to work with, reliable and someone with whom I felt comfortable talking.
| Director Communications Agency
Trudy has always been a pleasure to work with and although it sounds like a cliché you couldn’t meet a more genuine, supportive person who can combine her softer skills with business acumen to add value.
| Human Resources Director
My experience working with Trudy has been positive from the start. I felt a connection with her warm, reassuring and professional manner, which she complements well with active listening skills and thoughtful questions. She has enabled me to realise how much control I can actually exercise over my circumstances at work. That by managing how I choose to react to my manager and situations that arise at work, I can overcome the negativity more comfortably. I would recommend Trudy without hesitation.
