CEO - CONSUMER INTELLIGENCE
People underestimate how difficult change is. I needed Ginny’s help to firstly clarify the issues I was facing and the choices they gave me. Then, I needed support keeping me on the path that I had committed to. Often, during the process, you find yourself questioning things or being questioned by others. Ginny’s support reconnected me with my ambition and drove me forward to complete the change.
Ginny is tough, straight forward, no bullshit and patient. This unique set of skills helped me get clarity where I was overcomplicating. This is something unique in my experience of working with external support.
CEO - pREDi ROCHE
Ginny definitely pushed me to move beyond my comfort zone and expand the possibilities – helping me to step over boundaries, and do things that I would definitely not have been able to do without her. She has the skill of inspiring people to do things they themselves don’t believe they are able to do.
I am very, very thankful for the time we spent together, she made a big contribution to the success here. It was a perfect match at the right time. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Ginny.
MD - HEWLETT PACKARD
Ginny is an extremely professional coach, who focuses quickly and works to achieve results. She is flexible, inspiring and focused on self evaluation. Her coaching and advice remain in my conscious thought every day.
Throughout the years I have been helping others with my ghetto version of her fine coaching. Even some time after our work together, Ginny is still having an impact on my life and all the people’s lives around me.
SVP, Discovery Communications Europe Ltd
I was extremely skeptical about coaching in general until I met Ginny! Every session together became a real discovery! Tough questions, candid feedback, provocative conversations, and inspirational stories – in her ‘coaching arsenal’ to shape your thinking. Unfortunately, we do not have time for reflection in our busy lives with heavy responsibilities, deadlines and deliverables. She encouraged me slow down and look around. I realized what impact I have on other people lives and on my personal life. I became much more perceptive to the world and that opened a door to new and much bigger opportunities in my life. It was a great transformational journey; the road was quite bumpy though! Ginny was always next to me generously shared her inspiration and courage, helping me to get into the better place in my mind and in my heart.
CEO - THAT PEOPLE THING
When time is precious, you do not want to waste any of it talking about things that won’t make a different. With Ginny, no time is wasted, she gets straight into the topics that are pivotal to my success. This is not a game to her, she takes it really seriously, and gives as much weight to my goals as I do. She does a huge amount of thinking on what I really need, I know I have her full attention both when we work together and when I get in touch between sessions.
This might not sound like fun, but it is weirdly pleasurable to be focusing on what I must do to continue to make deep progress in my business, and doing it with Ginny
PARTNER - ST JAMES'S PLACE WEALTH MANAGEMENT
My personal and professional life have significantly improved as a result of working with Ginny. My experience of working with Ginny is that she consistently pushes to get the best out of the person she is coaching. She is brave and courageous in calling behaviour, when not inline with the goals outlined.
Ginny gets to what is going on behind the scenes and challenges it in an appropriate way. She has the ability to help you see the direct opposite approach to the one that initially presents itself. She was available to me outside of our coaching sessions, which meant a lot to me, as I needed her help at unscheduled times.
Ginny is solely interested in being in service of the person she is coaching, this is something I value very highly, as in my experience it is rare.
UK Director, Srivikorn Group Holding Company Ltd
Ginny navigated me through one of the toughest periods of my life and pushed me to do things way beyond my comfort zone. She helped me to rediscover my core strength and steely determination that had been misplaced. After working with Ginny I faced my fears, got the dream job and have never looked back. I attribute much of my success to Ginny’s unparalleled coaching skills.
Deputy Vice Chancellor, University of Gloucestershire
Ginny doesn't pander to her clients needs. If you want it and can deal with it you will get her honest and authentic assessment of the bigger picture and your position within it. That has helped me move on considerably - professionally and personally
CEO - ANGLING TRUST
Ginny set me off on a new path of self-discovery that has genuinely transformed my working, and personal life by helping me to greater self-awareness, a deeper understanding of the way I relate to others and the ability to change how I do business.
As a result I have greater authenticity, confidence and job satisfaction. She is not at all afraid to challenge, or to be brutally honest. Other coaches I have worked with simply raise an eyebrow or give you a look. Ginny lets you know exactly where you stand. However, she does this with such humanity and good humour that it doesn’t hurt.

FOUNDERS - CHILD OF HOPE UGANDA
Ginny has been our coach, our mentor, our cheer-leader, our counsellor and our friend. We have laughed together, cried together and rejoiced together. it is hard to recognize the Child of Hope today from when we first started our coaching sessions. The organisation has grown from a team of about 15 to more than 40 staff. The number of children has grown from just over 100 to more than 300. Our funding has almost tripled and our reputation is growing too.
More importantly, there has been a change within us – our self-belief, our motivation and our confidence have grown exponentially.
Acting COO - Royal Agricultural University
During my time spent with Ginny I moved from a being a routine-driven worker content in a safe job, to an ambitious, energetic and positive person confident in my ability to shape my own destiny. Over the course of our conversations Ginny took genuine care to discover what worked for me as a person, gently but insistently questioning how I saw myself, my career, and my work/life balance. Ginny then pointed out the different options and choices available, before focusing on a course of action which resonated with my personal values and also made me, in her words, lift my head and see what I was capable of. The lesson I still carry with me from Ginny's coaching is that a career is a journey which will have its setbacks as well as successes, but which is not predetermined - instead it is a path which each of us can map in our own way to arrive at our chosen destination.
