IAN HAWTHORN, Head of Highways Maintenance and Capital Projects (LBHF + RBKC) Co-Chair at London Technical Advisory Group
“I was fortunate to have Hayley lead some of the groups that I have done for World Class Manager. Hayley is amazing and challenges you to explore your experiences whilst helping you to improve through the challenge. Her classes are always thoughtful and dynamic making sure she gets the best of you. They are always well developed taking you along at the right pace but making sure everyone is engaged. She manages to get you to really explore your abilities whilst getting you to evaluate them so that you can improve in key areas. I would highly recommend Hayley as massive positive investment to any organisation staff. Truly outstanding.”
JOANNA MORRISON, Head of Communications and Digital at Leicestershire County Council

 

“Completing my coaching programme with Hayley has been a watershed for me. She has helped me to define my values and plough my energy into things that are consistent with those values. As an experienced and skilled coach, she has drawn the best from me, whilst challenging me to consider my options and change my perspective. Hayley comes with a high coaching calibre as well as a strong professional background, so she deeply grasped the challenges I was facing. I gained clarity, purpose and even learned some new skills for my own leadership toolkit along the way. I had been thinking about coaching for a while – and I’m very glad to have taken the next step with Hayley”
EMILY CORDERY, Director of Consulting Services at Aston Carter

 

“Hayley’s experience within business and working with Executive Leaders across a range of industries was invaluable during our coaching sessions. Her background in psychology provided an excellent foundation for our sessions and as a result, I have a much better understanding of myself personally and professionally. Hayley’s impartial and professional support ensured I identified and addressed my development areas, and as a result I have been able to positively impact my people and my business. I can’t recommend Hayley highly enough to those seeking outside counsel for both in the moment people and business situations, during times of business and career change or support with long term business or career planning. Thank you Hayley and I look forward to working with you again – as you say – coaching is a lifetime commitment!”
JENNIFER LOWIS, Strategic Communications and Engagement Manager at Dorset County Council
“I have recently completed 6 months professional coaching with Hayley, as I relocated and took on a new role. I have found our sessions invaluable. Hayley’s coaching helped me to gain a different perspective, review my performance and think intentionally about my approach going forward. I’ve learnt and grown so much over the past 6 months, and Hayley has helped me on that journey. Highly recommend Hayley’s coaching. She is hugely knowledgeable and experienced, provides excellent resources, and you always feel better after talking to her!”
ANNABEL CROUCH, Policy Manager at Elmbridge Borough Council
“I have been fortunate enough to have been coached by Hayley recently and would highly recommend her. Hayley’s sessions were engaging and invaluable. As a coach, she strives to ensure you are getting the most out of your time with her and is fantastic at boosting confidence and helping you to see the bigger picture. Coaching is a great way for anyone to develop and learn about themselves and Hayley is brilliant at doing this.”
SIMON CAIRNS, Head of Business Change and Continuous Improvement at HM Land Registry
“I worked with Hayley over the past 12 months on developing the capability of our change management team and as a personal coach/mentor to me as Head of Profession. Hayley provides original thinking based on a great blend of theory and personal experience. Both I and the team benefited greatly from her personable and thought-provoking approach. Highly recommend.”
CLAIRE THURLOW, Communications Improvement Adviser at Local Government Association
“I’ve been lucky enough to have Hayley as a coach for the past few months and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Not only is she compassionate, kind and amazingly insightful, she’s been fantastic at helping me to develop practical ways of addressing challenges and break the sometimes overwhelming ‘big picture’ into more manageable and digestible chunks. Working with Hayley has boosted my confidence, given me greater insight into my values and helped me think more clearly about what I’m looking for from my career, both now and in the future. It has also been brilliant fun. If you get the chance to work with her, take it. You won’t regret it.”
NIMAL JUDE, Strategic Social Work Engagement Lead: Social Work England
“Hayley has worked with the South East London Social Work Teaching Partnership and co-facilitated two away days for our board of directors, principal social workers and academics. Hayley helped us to focus on our values by creating interactive and meaningful exercises while providing the right balance of challenge, evidence and humour. The one page graphic she provided after the sessions provided us with a colourful visual that captured the key areas which would have otherwise been a series of bullet points over a few pages. Hayley cleverly uses her personality to bring energy and develop a thought-provoking environment.”
MARLENE OATES-HINDS,
Committee Member, CIPD South London Branch
“Hayley presented an excellent workshop on Leading Successful Change for the CIPD’s South London Branch. The event was well attended and her presentation was balanced with both theoretical and practical inputs. HR professionals gave positive feedback about how the event, especially how it gave them a better insight into how they could enable their organisations to manage change more effectively.”
NATALIE ANDERSON, Head of Organisational Development at Elmbridge Borough Council
“Hayley recently spoke at an event for senior leaders at Elmbridge Borough Council. She was very inspirational and created lots of opportunity for discussion. If you are looking for a great speaker/facilitator then I would recommend Hayley.”
JULIE TAGUE, Deputy Programme Manager, UK Government
“Hayley has been a fantastic mentor for me. Hayley has been fantastic at sharing experience and points of view which have helped me think how I may want to approach forthcoming opportunities. She is always a positive role model and has greatly increased my confidence to tackle challenges I may not have previously. The constructive guidance and feedback she provides has helped me to see my career and choices differently. I have really enjoyed my time having Hayley as my mentor and believe this has improved my confidence, encouraged me to proactively consider a wider range of options with regards to my career, and generally improved my self-awareness in the working environment. Thanks Hayley!”
