VP Middle East and Africa Yahoo!

“I’ve had the pleasure to work with Dawn as my executive coach for over a year while I was at Yahoo! Dawn took the time to dig deep into my values and priorities to ensure that they were aligned and balanced. What I loved about working with Dawn is that she was able to go beyond high-level concepts and dig deep into the day-to-day practicalities of managing people, leading teams, and running a business. She gave me practical guidance and tools that I will continue to apply throughout my career. And on top of everything else, Dawn’s work combines professionalism, actionable insights, trust, humor, and integrity. Leadership is a work in progress. Dawn helps you stay focused, sharp, and grounded.”

“It was not a surprise, but what I really liked was her practical approach, the personal experience, and — last but not least —she really knew what she was talking about. I also liked the level of engagement she had with the group.

Dawn developed hands-on training that we can and have used again.

We really enjoyed working with her and the feedback from our participants was very positive!”

Interim IT Director

‘Dawn is a first class coach and mentor who knows exactly how and when to roll her sleeves up and get stuck in. She isn’t afraid of taking on the difficult and telling it how it is. Dawn provides excellent advice and guidance backed up with quality thinking and materials in support of an objective. She tends to come at and consider things from a different perspective, and constantly seeks a perspective that will make you think about the topic from a different standpoint.’

Head of Quality Assurance, Home Retail Group

‘Dawn is an extremely effective and insightful coach who has, in a very short space of time, helped me to deliver a remarkable turnaround in my performance. Her extensive business awareness, coupled with a supportive and challenging coaching style, gave me the confidence to explore and successfully tackle a number of very difficult issues.’   

Senior Leader NHS

“Dawn took the time to understand what I would respond to best and worked within frameworks, which I found understandable and relevant once I had overcome my initial cynicism. Through some relatively simple changes she allowed me to discover the best ways of helping myself, and that ultimately the only person holding me back was me. Through her expertise, I have achieved the job I thought was beyond me and am absolutely loving it.”

Head of Wealth Business Management – Private Bank

“I had reached a point in my career where I was struggling to sufficiently mobilise enough of my organisation to ‘get stuff done.’ I was struggling to appreciate the role that emotional intelligence plays in an executive position.

We discussed a range of techniques including how to truly listen to people and stay calm and balanced in difficult situations – all with the purpose of achieving better outcomes.

The results are nothing short of metamorphosis! I have a great deal to thank Dawn for and would highly recommend her to others who find themselves in a similar position.”
