Whether you’re an account assistant, executive, manager or director, or maybe a press officer or comms manager, welcome to the next chapter of your PR career.
Whatever stage you are in your PR journey, or whether you’re here because you’re looking for a new career, welcome and I’m so glad you have found me.
After spending over 23 years working in PR , today I coach and mentor PR professionals who want to create a business, career, and life they love, so that they thrive, and don’t just survive.
I work with a wide range of PR people, at all levels, across all industries and help them to deal with their concerns, issues, and frustrations so they can find new opportunities, or make their current role work better for them.
> There’s the account executive with their eye on a manager role, but who doesn’t feel visible, or valued, in their agency.
> The account manager who wants to go in-house, but isn’t sure that they will have the same chances to further their career or how they would climb the ladder if they did so.
> Coming back from maternity leave, or being furloughed, can be a tough experience, and feeling out of touch with colleagues and clients can mean the old devil imposter syndrome comes into place and makes them doubt their brilliance.
> And of course, there are those mavericks who just know that being employed is no longer viable for them, but they aren’t sure about how to make that leap to freelancer, or business owner, and obviously can’t ask anyone at work what they would do.
Far from the glitz and glamour of Samantha and co in Sex in the City, and a world away from ‘fanny around with press releases’ as Bridget Jones suggested, I know that working PR can be tough gig. While it might not be ER, PR comes with responsibilities, stress, and an ongoing need to perform and achieve. The tendency to over service and under-charge can lead to self-doubt and a lack of boundaries, and burnout is something that can occur all too easily.
I also know, however, that working in PR can be extremely rewarding, a lot of fun, undeniably creative, and there’s a world of opportunities out there to seize and make the most of, and that is what I can help you to do.
From one-off sessions and long-term personal development investments, to a high-value membership, group programmes and fantastic masterminds, I offer a range of options for those who want to work with me
By blending my global PR experience with ICF standard coaching skills, bespoke PR-centric tools, mental health first aid training, and mentoring, I bring something truly unique to the coaching table.
If you’re looking for a coach who understands the pressures you are under, the clients you are looking for, and the ceilings you want to smash, I’m delighted to say that you have found her.
As well as practical tools and exercises, I have an enviable little black book of contacts to call upon, as well as questions to get you thinking and I am all about accountability, but I can’t do the work for you, and at the end of the day, the hard work has to be done by you.
We can look at your CV and interview technique, identify your strengths and nail your values and dial down any doubts, so that you find a role that makes your heart sing, your dreams come true and your confidence fly.
Why not get in touch today and see how I could help you to find your zone of genius, and empower you to take your business, career, and life to the next level.
