Some coaching testimonials:

If i haven’t formally expressed my gratitude, I’d like to do it now. The sessions have been very informative, beneficial and most importantly interesting. (Young graduate)

I want to say a heartfelt thank you for the influence you have had on me, and for backing me when I did not yet back myself. I greatly appreciate all your support and guidance you offered, and I know that I’m not alone in that gratitude as you continue to guide and mentor many people around you. (Business analyst and then managing director)

Thank you for the guidance and mentorship that you provided, I have not only grown in my career but also as a person. (Release Manager)

I would like to again thank you for all your advice and the influence you had in helping me determine the path I wanted to take in my career. I remember now that it was last year at sort of the same time as now that we had a chat and I finalized my decision to do something different that would be much more fulfilling. (Researcher)
