Emily Shelly

Fay helped me prepare for an interview for a more senior role and a move into an area of HR that I hadn't worked in before. She was friendly, helpful and ensured I was fully up to date with recent changes in legislation that would directly impact the role I was..

..interviewing for. Having this knowledge helped me feel confident when interviewing and proved to be a key factor in getting the job.

Jane Coley

I approached Fay asking for help in writing a new CV after applying for jobs and not being selected for interview. What I felt was a complication was that I was changing career, seeking a role in Accounting, rather than Education.

Fay showed me I had skills that I hadn’t mentioned in my previous CV, which should be included. She emphasised the Accounting qualifications I had recently gained and gave my CV a fresh, modern look to help it stand out from other applicants. I used the updated CV (and newfound confidence) to apply for the exact role I was looking for. I was offered an interview immediately and was offered the job.

Stephanie Sulaman

Fay's HR knowledge was invaluable when I needed to prepare for an interview. She realised that the questions I was going to be asked were likely to be connected to the competencies described in the job description for the role.

We practised answers I could give to a range of possible questions. This meant that when I was in the interview I felt calm and well prepared and following the interview, I was offered the job. I'd recommend her to anyone who needs help with their career.

Kat Haagel

Having known Fay since my time in recruitment I had no hesitations in asking for support when deciding to change career path. I have been coached by firm but positive reinforcement to make the decisions and changes to make this happen.

Being exceptionally experienced within the HR sector, Fay will provide very sound guidance.Whether it's to build confidence, write a professional CV, teach networking skills... Fay will be more than able to guide you. She did just that for me. Thank you Fay!

Rebecca Deller

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!

Gary Crombie

I used Bright Sky for help to bring my CV up to date and cannot recommend the service highly enough. Fay is incredibly helpful and very thorough. The service was also excellent value for money. Many thanks, Gary

Claire Townshend (Head of HR, EMEA & US at Ashurst)

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.

Helen Kirby

Having not had an interview for 13 years I was worried about my skills. I contacted Fay for some interview coaching. She helped me to fine tune and refine my skills, we focussed on my body language, tone of voice and making my answers clear and suitably detailed...

.. Fay was friendly and positive and encouraged and supported me. I now feel confident that I can approach an interview successfully.

Carl Lumbard

Reaching a point in my career when I wanted to return to corporate work from consulting and freelancing, I was aware that my CV probably needed updating and adapting. Fay’s clear and professional critique and insights into what the new CV should and..

..should not contain helped me secure the role that I went on to apply for.

Lizzie Bielicki

Fay is a fantastically positive and enthusiastic career coach who guided me through my job search process from start to finish, and enabled me to land my dream role. From exploring my key strengths to establishing the right..

..career path for me and improving my CV, Fay was brilliant at every stage of the process. Towards the end of my consultation with Fay I was offered two fantastic jobs, in roles I may not have considered without her guidance and encouragement along the way. Fay is a pleasure to work with and great at what she does - I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Fiona Williams

Fay has been a great help in giving me direction and focus and making my ideas measurable. As a result I have gone on to get a job that suits me and my lifestyle - I now have the confidence to..

..plan ahead and think big as I truly now know my worth and what I have to offer. Fay is a positive and effective force! She is inspirational, supportive & motivational in the most endearing way, I would not hesitate to use her again.

Daniela Grossi

Fay helped with my CV and conducted the session in a relaxed and friendly environment. Fay was enthusiastic, provided encouragement and gave useful suggestions on how to enhance and sell my achievements, which I had not previously considered.

Fay revamped the CV, making it more professional and current which gave me the confidence to send it to recruiters and upload to job sites in my search for employment. After sending my improved CV to one recruiter, he contacted me to say that it was one of the best he had ever seen. I would definitely recommend Fay to anyone who requires assistance with their CV.

Marta Szewczyk

English CV formats and qualifications  are very different to those in Poland. Fay created a CV, highlighting my achievements and explaining the English equivalent of my Polish qualifications. She listened to my concerns about accelerating..

.. my career, suggesting a training course to give me the skills I needed to progress. Fay also recommended recruitment agencies to help find my perfect role. There were countless ways in which she helped my confidence and prepared me for interviews; such as practising interview questions and advising me on what to wear.  I returned to Fay for support and advice once I got the job I was hoping for. She has helped me calm my new-job nerves, prepare for my annual appraisal at work and negotiate flexible working hours when I was pregnant. Her HR expertise was invaluable at helping me understand my maternity rights at work and her recruitment experience was evident when prepping me for my career journey.

Geraldine Smith (HR Business Partner)

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.

Eleanor Luker (Faculty Alumni Officer at Kingston Business School)

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.
