What others say
"Yvette is one of the most positive individuals I know. She is first and foremost a people person. She has an established track record in top end recruitment and she just has an eye for spotting great talent. Moreover, she has a real ability to get to the person behind the CV. This blending of her experience in recruitment together with her natural inclination to coaching creates a very purposeful business orientated combination. This means that she immediately grasps the need to show how she can add value - both to the individual and the company who is often supporting the coaching costs. It is on this basis that I have absolute confidence in Yvette to create, through her coaching improved business outcomes which will both challenge and develop the individual, and for the organisation - develop its people capabilities so it can better deliver its objectives."
--Wayne Close FCMA, CGMA, BA, MSc, Managing Director - Bupa Global North America
"Over the past year Yvette has been coaching me through some major business changes which I could not have navigated through with as much enthusiasm & confidence without her help.
"Yvette's coaching skills helped me to identify and focus on the most important aspects of myself & my role and have enabled me to embrace change and face the fears that have hindered me so much in the past.
"Yvette was able to get straight to the heart of the challenging issues that I was facing. She has a fantastic open style of coaching which I found motivational and inspiring, her approach is simple, practical and most certainly fun!
"I look forward to using the skills and techniques Yvette has equipped me with to move forward within my career as a more confident and inspired leader."
--Sian Whittaker ACMA, CGMA, Business Unit Controller - Arcadis Group
"Yvette has the unique ability of being able to assess an individual's characteristics and traits and in so doing develop an individual's SWOT map against the challenges they face. However her real niche value is her ability, through both her coaching skills and experience, to help clients develop strong self-awareness enabling them to maximise their strengths and achieve their career and organisational goals."

Her process is excellent at keeping me focused on the goals to be achieved, especially running my region and thinking through complex business issues. By taking time out, and working with Yvette to assess where things are, and what needs to improve I am able to take advantage of her incisive, positive and goal driven approach to set smart objectives.

"Coaching with Yvette has been an extremely rewarding process and one I would highly recommend. What feels like an investment in me has also resulted in 84% bottom line growth for the business. At our first meeting we set some stretching business and career goals. Immediately I found Yvette very easy to talk to; she is incredibly insightful, and created an environment for professional dialogue where I was able to verbalise ideas I previously may never have discussed. My sessions with Yvette have given me the confidence, clarity and tools to tackle issues in new ways as well as improve my own personal performance."
