• Dr Cathie Woodward has recently completed a significant Leadership and Development Programme for a number of our Senior and Middle Managers. This included both individual and team coaching sessions   As the sponsor of the Programme I was absolutely committed to a new way of developing our managers. I needed the Programme to ready the managers to lead large numbers of staff, humanistically, through significant change.  We also needed to equip them as individuals for their current and future roles.  At the completion of the Programme I wanted them to feel and behave differently.   The Programme mobilised quickly and engaged a somewhat unsure audience with ease.   Cathie has more than satisfied my objectives and the feedback from the participants and their staff has been overwhelming. I move to secure further investment with confidence. Cathie will be a key part of the taking the Programme forward.

  • I have worked with Martin for over a year and as a business coach he has helped me greatly on both a professional and personal level. As an FD his background and experience in "my world" have proven to be invaluable. Beyond this however his business and commercial insight, ability to build trust and rapport quickly and approach, which both challenges and facilitates the client to make breakthroughs, are applicable to any manager or executive looking to drive their careers forward. He is someone who tells it as it is but who gives you the tools to take ownership and self-serve. I would strongly recommend him.

  • Martin and I met on a number of occasions, as part of his organisation’s 'new Director' coaching contract with my Firm. Martin excelled in effective coaching techniques, based on the psychological factors that can influence daily working "habits" and how a positive and energised approach can influence outcomes. Incredibly useful and barely a week passes without me utilising one of these techniques, which are grounded in backing yourself in terms of self-confidence, underpinned by an organised, focused approach,
