Online professional profile

The professional environment is increasingly affected by social media messaging and it’s important to participate carefully and effectively. I provide online networking and career coaching services that help you to manage your personal brand and be visible in a way that complements your professionalism.

Internships and placements

I help you to prepare interns and placement participants thoroughly so that they gain commercial awareness and benefit fully from their internship or placement. I wrote a series of guides for Vitae to help organisations shape and manage their internship and placement programmes.

Private: Outplacement for universities

Outplacement coaching helps people recognise the need for change and make sense of their situation. Maintaining university reputation, it reduces stress, makes job-seeking more successful and supports affected individuals and those who stay.

Don’t reject opportunities because they don’t fit with your predetermined goal.

~ John Krumboltz, Professor of Education at Stanford University

I have realised that It’s okay to share my qualities and strengths with co-workers. There is no point in waiting for them to find my hidden talents!
