As part of a wellbeing initiative I invited Fay to deliver two work-life balance sessions. The sessions were for employees within the UK Head Office of the organisation I worked for at the time. The sessions ...

.. proved to be very popular and created debate, honesty and a chance to set specific goals within a 3 month period with the aim of creating a greater sense of harmony in our lives. The success of this exercise was down to Fay’s open and warm demeanour as a facilitator which enabled participants to feel confident and comfortable to open up within the group. Fay came across as credible and professional and this was supported through her ability to link academia to the masses alongside keeping the session light and informal. I would personally recommend Fay as an excellent facilitator and coach. The feedback received following the session were fantastic and many participants commented on how they would love Fay to return with a part 2.

Fay delivered an inspiring presentation at Kingston University to the undergraduate students on 'Networking' at the end of last year. As I sat in audience I also felt inspired by her words and insights and as a result now look at Networking in quite a different way.

She is incredibly personable and has a warmth about her that draws you in immediately. I decided to sign up to some coaching with Fay. I found it incredibly helpful having her as a sounding board at a time when I wasn't sure of my next steps. The exercises she gave me as preparation were thought provoking, her positivity and insights she brought to the session left me feeling empowered and clearer what I should do next. As a result it has brought new adventures and a sense of excitement back into my work/life again. Thank you Fay!

Fay gave an excellent presentation to our Undergraduate students at the Kingston Business School, on the how Networking can enhance their careers. Fay shared her experience of networking in a really animated and engaging way ...

.. encouraging audience participation and clearly demonstrating the value of networking in a for professionals. Fay’s lively and inspiring approach to public speaking really resonated with our students, and we’d be delighted for Fay to share her experiences with our students again in future.

I brought Fay into our business to provide career coaching and to support some senior business services managers and senior associates following their recent promotion. Fay is extremely professional, she is confidential, knowledgeable and a good sounding board ...

.. As most of our staff are client-facing and charge their time, setting time aside for coaching type activities can often be difficult. Fay perseveres and ensures that she stays in touch and engages with the people she is supporting on a regular basis. I can think of no greater compliment than one Director being so impressed, that they asked for the coaching to be extended to another member of their team and has mentioned some of the exercises Fay used on numerous occasions. I cannot recommend Fay highly enough.
