I am a graduate of University College Dublin with B.Comm and MBA degrees and a Fellow of Chartered Accountants Ireland. My career has included twenty years as Financial Director of some prominent businesses in Ireland and twenty years as a Consultant working with development and training projects in the public and private sectors in Ireland, Europe, Balkans, Middle East, Asia and Africa. Having spent a good deal of my working life in financial management I retrained and added a new dimension to my skills. I am a qualified coach having taken a Diploma in Executive Coaching at the Irish Management Institute in 2010. I am also an accredited practitioner in personality assessment tests, including Emotional Intelligence (EQi) and Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Most recently (2016) I have completed special training with The Third Act and am now one of the first Third Act Transition coaches.
I have huge personal learning experiences in my life which I see as a valuable asset for a coach. I regard it as a great privilege to be invited to share the inner world of a coach in a working alliance results-oriented partnership. Coaching others towards achieving their potential is a two way win win relationship.
