"Catherine has a leadership pedigree which is first class.

She has a wealth of experience with developing top leaders across public sector organisations. As a leading academic I would highly recommend her as a coach but also as a facilitator of large workshops where the latest evidence and techniques can be applied. Finally Catherine has networking skills to be envied and her programmes always contain evidence based content presented by fantastic speakers who stimulate your thinking."

Maggie Morgan- Cooke. Programme Director NHS Improving Quality Delivery Team

"Catherine has a tremendous ability to engage with leaders and help them develop their skills.

She is a credible, knowledgeable and experienced leader herself with great interpersonal skills which enables her to effectively support and challenge leaders at all levels across different sectors. She is as effective working with individuals, in a one to one situation as a coach, or working with a larger group as the leader of a development programme".
