“I have worked with Katy on a couple of occasions when applying for jobs or preparing for interviews. Katy worked with me, face to face to extrapolate my ‘success stories’, and to focus my mind on how to articulate my career and experience in interviews and written applications. Katy was then extremely helpful giving direct feedback on job applications and my CV, keeping in touch with me via email to support the process of getting a job.
I would recommend Katy to anyone who is either looking at developing their career, changing jobs, or just focussing themselves to be able to ensure they are getting the best out of their current role or organisation.”

“Katy uses good questions, practical tips and real examples to help me come away with authentic steps forward after each session.
I am glad that Johnson and Johnson supported my career development with Katy as my Executive Coach.”

Katy helped me write my resumé ready for the German market.
I found her through a German Expat Website and she helped me immediately understand where I was going wrong. She challenged me to think wider than my own limitations and I got a new job very quickly in Munich! I couldn’t have done it with out her. I have recommended her to my friends!
“In 2015 Katy helped me to succeed in obtaining two job offers! In 2018 with Katy’s coaching I secured a further promotion to my dream job.
Katy gave me pre interview questions and focused my mind on the likely questions based on the job description and Person Spec.
This allowed me to be focused in my interview and highlight specific examples to demonstrate the skills and experiences I needed for the role.
Katy helped me to identify my strengths, focus on my achievements and use these to evidence how I would be able to develop the role that I was applying for.
Katy helped with interview techniques that I was able to use. Katy gave me practice interview questions and then reflected back to me afterwards what she had actually heard me say. This allowed me to ensure that in the interview I was more focused and was quickly able to answer the questions in a considered way.
I would recommend Katy’s coaching style to anyone looking for a promotion or a change of role!”
Anna, Head of Service, County Council
“Katy helped me with my interview practice for my current role.
She asked me difficult interview questions and helped me prepare great answers that were honest but brief and to the point.
She showed me that I had good examples for each skill they were looking for and how to make sure my vision for the role was clearly communicated to all the interviewers. I would recommend Katy for people looking for new roles.
I would recommend Katy for people looking for new roles.”
“I have found working with Katy to be extremely empowering. She blends a high level of professional knowledge and experience with humor, thought-provoking questions, and many practical activities.
I always come away from a session with new ideas, plans for next steps, and a feeling of having invested wisely in choosing her as a professional coach.”

“Your precise feedback helped me hone my presentation and interview skills to a top level, allowing me to land an amazing position in a dynamic company.
What is best of all is that you delivered your services in an efficient, professional, and friendly package that allowed me to improve my skills and confidence and had me walking into my interviews feeling like I had whole team supporting me from behind. Thank you so much!”
After being off the workforce for three years due to my trailing spouse status, a very interesting job opportunity arose.
Not knowing where to start with an outdated resumé and little confidence in my capacities following such a long pause, I asked Katy for a consultation.
“I was fortunate enough to be a delegate on a course co-delivered by Katy, for partners of ex-pat professionals working in Düsseldorf.
Katy is friendly and intuitive to the concerns and needs of her delegates.
I continue to value being part of a network that supports me personally and professionally.”
