“Wendy has helped us to see our business goals more clearly and set out a strategic action plan of how to get there within a realistic time frame. She has provided a professional and confidential sounding board, asking objective and probing questions; and challenging our thinking so we have come up with the solutions ourselves. We very much appreciate her on-going Marketing and Business Coaching support; and her natural ability to focus on our issues and help us resolve them with a refreshing sense of energy, creativity and motivation. She has made what could have been a dry and tedious process; a pleasure.”

Her coaching provides us with clarity about the way forward and sets realistic timelines and allocates resources and divides the tasks between us fairly.  Throughout these sessions we have felt encouraged, supported, listened to, and above all, given the space to think and work out what is right for us. We look forward to working with Wendy on a monthly basis starting in April 2012.”

“I first met Wendy when I was brought in to work on an ongoing project involving two charities, to provide website design and marketing materials. I have now worked with her on two other occasions, one a re-brand for Parsonage Farm the other producing flyers and business cards for her and one of her clients. Wendy is an excellent communicator, she always gives a clear and concise brief and excellent feedback ensuring projects are completed well within timescales. Wendy is a joy to work with and I can highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to help you further your business.”

“Wendy came highly recommended and I have not for a moment regretted my decision to use her as my Book Coach and Book Editor. When I first started working with Wendy, I was unwell and struggling with my workload – her experience as a Business Performance Coach was also very useful to me.  

At our first meeting, with just one question she changed my mindset, which enabled me to make significantly positive changes in my working life. Wendy is tremendously encouraging throughout the Book Coaching process and she is quick to spot how to make the book a cohesive whole. She taught me so much from her Book Editing and she also helped me negotiate the design of my book cover, which was very helpful. Huge thanks Wendy.”
