Testimonials & endorsements

Mark Taylor – Southern Cooperative. "I really enjoyed my time with Liz as my coach professionally and I have no doubt this relationship will continue, although this part of my development programme has finished. Liz has a huge amount of knowledge and experience from her time working very successfully with a number of different businesses and a great insight into personal development with a number of models that can really assist you. She put me at ease very quickly which helped build a very strong rapport between us and a mutual trust, enabling me to disclose some very personal issues and really feel confident in the discussion, she was great at making me think very deeply and work things through to a conclusion which at times was uncomfortable and very stretching but the outcomes were far better as a result of this. I found myself really looking forward to the sessions and found them quite cathartic on a number of occasions! If you want a coach Liz to me is one of the best, I now have a life coach rather than a business contact..... thanks Liz."

Greg Wilkins – Southern Cooperative. "Working with Liz has been very stimulating, she has helped me explore unknown subconscious hidden areas, increasing my personal awareness of areas within my psyche and challenged my actions to increase further personal development. It is clearly evident that Liz draws from a wealth of experience to get the most out of the personal coaching experience, Liz made me feel at ease very quickly, establishing trust and enabling disclosure to flow freely. I would highly recommend Liz for any of your personal coaching needs.”

Jenny Daisley - CEO Springboard Consultancy Ltd. "I have known Liz for many years and consider her to be one of the few people in this area who not only says they can do it, but has the back up of masses of experience and proof to show just how well she has done it. She is an experienced developer of people as well as a Diversity expert and I am delighted that the Springboard Consultancy is associated with someone of her experience."

Rachel Cheal – Company Secretary - Solent NHS “It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with Liz over the years in her capacity as Non-Executive Director. A true professional, Liz brought insight and experience and always had the patient and staff member at the forefront of any board considerations and debate”

Alex Marshall - Chief Constable Hampshire Constabulary "Liz has done an excellent job for us."

Aly Bowring – “I consider myself very lucky to have worked with Liz in the early stages of my career and in having the opportunity of applying much of my learning throughout my career. Personally I find Liz a total inspiration from the way life is managed, her values and focus on the cause, her professionalism and her natural ability of reading between the lines of unspoken conversations. Liz has so many qualities the one I truly value is Liz’s ability to challenge in a supportive way, stretching you out of your comfort zone, but being there for you whole-heartedly. I would jump at the chance of working with Liz again even if it was leaping into the unknown.”

Stephanie Morgan - Assistant Chief Constable Hampshire Constabulary "Liz is a strategic thinker who is also able to deliver. She is positive, motivated, dynamic and very effective. She has excellent interpersonal skills and has proven her worth as an innovator in her approach to the delivery of Fairness & Equality."
