Suzanne Pullen

I’m an Executive Coach and Mentor specialising in increasing managers’ confidence and performance, to help them unlock their own potential and that of their people. My ‘why’ is to make a difference to others’ development. Since establishing my own business – The Inner Potential – I now do that full time, using my coaching and mentoring skills and drawing on the experiences of my long corporate career in Learning & Development, Employee Engagement, People Management, IT and as a CEO.

I’ve empowered managers and other business professionals to find their own ‘why’, build their self-confidence, manage their teams, working relationships and careers more effectively and handle change well, amongst other things. My supportive, flexible, action-orientated approach helps my clients to begin thinking differently and move forward in a new or different way.

Sue Webb

Sue has a wealth of experience in the education sector, as a teacher, school leader and now as a Leadership and Team Coach. As a headteacher of an outstanding school, Sue spent five years growing individuals and teams, managing significant change, developing a values-based organisation and achieving excellent outcomes for all stakeholders. Having ‘walked the walk’, Sue’s passion for supporting school leaders is now her mission and the reason for the work she does in schools.

Sue specialises in coaching leaders, and also other staff who play significant roles within schools. Whether working with senior leaders, middle leaders or newly-qualified teachers, Sue brings her coaching expertise and experience, in a wide range of educational settings, to focus explicitly on what is at the core of the individual, team or organisation – supporting people to discover what is driving them forwards, what their motivators are – and what is holding their growth back. She challenges her coachees, with support and kindness, to look beyond ‘what they do’ and ask themselves ‘how to be’.

After headship, Sue qualified from Henley Business School in 2016 with a Distinction in the Professional Certificate in Coaching. She is also a certified NLP Practitioner and runs a private coaching practice for children and young people with a focus on improving their wellbeing and developing resilience.

She firmly believes that self worth is a lifestyle not a luxury. With over 25 years’ experience in helping individuals focus on their development both professionally and personally, her passion is in supporting individuals to connect with who they really are and what they really want.

It has fostered a culture where everyone supports and champions each other to be their authentic selves and be happy to be in their own skin. Nicola is regularly invited to speak at events and has spoken at the UK ICF conference and for several of their chapters.

She also writes regularly for a number of online mediums on self care, wellbeing and authenticity – three of her top values. Recent clients have included Princes Trust, NHS and other charity organisations, both within the UK and internationally.

Mark Peacock

Hi, I’m a business and executive coach and I do two things: I help businesses unlock value through better pricing solutions and I coach businesses and executives to improve their leadership skills and achieve their goals.

Pricing is one of the key areas for improving profitability but conversely, it’s an aspect of your business you probably spend relatively little time thinking about. There are many ways to approach your pricing strategy and I can coach you through the options available and help you implement a plan to achieve results quickly.

I am also a trained executive and leadership development coach and work with people in any business context to help you improve your skills and achieve your goals. I am passionate about helping people develop themselves and believe that everyone has the potential to improve their capabilities and achieve a better future for themselves and their business.

I am an HR consultant and Executive Coach. After many years in the world of corporate HR, I left to set up my own HR Consultancy and Coaching business in 2017, having qualified as a coach with AoEC.

I work on a variety of HR projects and coaching both within large corporates and smaller organisations. However, my real passion is to help leaders within organisations to become more effective, both individually (through coaching), and to help them develop their teams to understand themselves and each other better (through the use of psychometrics, team building events and coaching). I also help them deal with their difficult people issues effectively. This enables them to improve the performance of their team.

In addition, I work with individuals who are at a crossroads in their career and don’t know what to do, to enable them to clarify the way forwards and confidently make the changes they want to make.

I am an executive coach, team coach and facilitator working mainly in international settings and excited about the potential of cultural diversity. I have worked with clients across a wide range of industries, from automotive through to fashion, and at all levels of seniority, from Future Leaders through to board members and CEOs. Much of my work focusses on individuals and teams working across different cultures.

My coaching work is by no means limited to this though.

I have supported many individuals here in the UK working within a single-country setting. Some of my areas of focus are supporting clients in identifying their purpose, overcoming self-limiting beliefs, identifying and building strengths, improving presence and influencing skills, managing and empowering teams and building resilience.

Hi there, I started coaching in 2001 after a thirteen years of commercial (mostly sales) experience in the technology, media and telecoms sectors.

I had been sitting on the roof of a houseboat on a lake near Srinagar in Kashmir at sunset, listening to the Muezzin calling the faithful to prayer. After months of exploration I finally realised that the thing that gives me the most satisfaction in life is helping people. I also love the world of business so it was obvious I should be coaching in business.

I’m lucky enough to have been in occupied solidly ever since with some great clients. I’m continuing to develop as an Exec coach (it never ends!) and my focus now is firmly on coaching leadership teams.

My clients tell me that I’m pragmatic and practical which my wife finds hard to believe.

What is a lack of confidence and direction really costing you? Continuously undervalued? Missing out on your dreams? Feeling disconnected? I see you and I hear you because I have been there. The good news is that life does not have to be this way!

Hi, I’m Grace (insert cheesy wave here). As an accountant working in financial services, I felt drained. It wasn’t just the crazy deadlines & the pressure of the job. It was something harder to pin-down. The feeling of ‘meh’ was my default setting. In order to escape, I found myself working excessively late nights hoping that at some point all the work would make me feel whole, make me feel valued, & heard… (Spoiler Alert: It didn’t.) I tried to change my life by making superficial shifts.

Slowly realising that I kept slipping into the same habits that didn’t serve me emotionally, mentally or professionally. I was going nowhere. In desperation I hired a life coach. Honestly, I had no idea what coaching even was, but I was curious, & I figured that I had nothing to lose. This was the start of a beautiful life changing journey. My coach helped me reconnect with who I am, what matters to me, & how to live my best life. I smile as I look back at where I have come from, & how challenging & rewarding the journey has been.

I have a clear understanding of who I am, what fills my cup, & the direction my life is headed. That’s why I wake up every day passionate about helping others to find their own paths with a structured coaching program designed to empower you to unlock all the best parts of you. I know, life’s busy. Give yourself permission to invest in your own happiness, success, & fulfilment. Your future is yours to write. Trust is an essential ingredient when working together.

Here’s some more information on my professional qualifications: I graduated from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), an international coaching program accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I am a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner & COR.E Transitions/Leadership Dynamics Specialist.

I chose to study at iPEC because of the school’s well established roots & high regard within the industry. Having obtained my accounting designation, I see an incredible value in having a well-recognised certification to be able to demonstrate that I have dedicated a large amount of time to refine my coaching skills & to ensure that my coaching has lasting results for my clients.

Decades of experience in aviation safety and innovation have taught me to always look beyond the obvious, to peel away the layers and take into account both internal and external contexts when striving for the optimum outcome.

As a life, leadership and wellness coach I take this systemic approach when working with clients, to enable long lasting and transformational change. I have lived on the hamster wheel, but my transition to a coach and a writer has allowed me to well and truly step off.

Time and again we find ourselves peddling ever faster, often losing sight of where we are, and where we want to be. Coaching enables you to pause, reflect, and really consider your true purpose in a safe and confidential environment.

The skills I have gleaned as a leader, decision maker, mentor, wellbeing advocate and board trustee have blended to inform my coaching practice, with my client’s needs always at the heart of the process.

I bring experience and authenticity to my work, enabling you to discover new possibilities and translate insight into actionable change.

I hold a PG Certificate in Coaching Psychology and am an accredited member of the Association for Coaching. I look forward to working with you.
