I worked in media for 12 years in 4 high profile companies; Lintas, JWT, CDP and PHD. I reached Business Director Level and ran several teams of people.
I left to work as a head hunter for 2 years before setting up Fox Haynes Media Headhunters in 1996.
I eventually discovered my true calling 8 years ago and have worked as an executive coach since then. I work with individuals and teams of people with the aim of them achieving their best performance in a business environment.
Issues around self motivation and removing obstacles for achieving business targets are central to my portfolio. I have delivered more than 7500 coaching hours and 680 coaching assignments with some very interesting and exciting people.
Confidence building, communication skills, increased motivation , management and leadership skills, career planning, removing obstacles, business planning, work/life balance, time management, general organisation, appraisal training, interview training are some of the areas that I work around.
I generally work with successful people who want to be even more successful….I have also worked extensively with people going through redundancy. In the current economic downturn I want to work with more people to help them see light at the end of the tunnel.
My coaching style is incisive, supportive, challenging and fast.

“ Carol is an exceptional and experienced coach and before that she was an outstanding headhunter. During the first 10 years of my career she was involved in guiding me professionally and despite my challenging ambition, she celebrated every step and encouraged every step. She understands you better than you understand yourself at times and she focuses your mind on the inner self to provide authenticity in your professional and personal delivery. She is renowned for her confidentiality, her challenging questions, her unshockability and her massive heart. ”
