  • I approached Heather as I wanted some general advice on how to best foster a network. I wanted to know what a successful network looked like, and how I could identify realistic objectives for the network. Her experience meant that she was able to pull on a number of global examples that really helped develop my thinking around these questions. Heather also helped by providing me a structure which I could use to get the most from my new network, as well as to support its further development.

  • Heather is an inspiration! After a long career in the City as a money broker the thought of a change of career was terrifying. A meeting with Heather changed my outlook completely as her own experiences, together with an expert knowledge of both networking and personal development helped me on the road to setting up my own consulting business.

  • I recently asked Heather to help me as I was setting up my own business and did not know how to position myself, gain clients or know if moving from large corporate HR roles to self employed was the right path. Heather is an honest, direct, helpful and easy to understand coach. I followed her guidance and ‘hey presto’ within weeks my new business started to work.

  • I recently reached out to Heather for some help and guidance during the launch of my own business. She gave me a new perspective and provided a focus to my networking efforts. She gave me a starting point, and helped me understand where to spend my time and energy and some great pointers where to not waste my time! It was much appreciated and I would recommend Heather.

  • Heather has been a wonderful, patient resource in our quest to start and grow our Women’s Network in EMEA. …. She was great at listening to where we’d been, addressing some of the challenges I had seen in the US and suggesting how to mitigate those types of issues within the new network. The advice and recommendations she gave me have already helped me and the network immensely.
