The feedback and group sessions where we gave each other support and advice was very helpful.

Peter, Graduate, University of York

The course was interesting and informative

Gillian, Hull

I was able to look at developing a five year plan in a supportive and well structured environment. I feel motivated and have a clearer focus on the steps I need to take to move towards achieving my goals and aspirations. The fact that a holistic approach to change was explored, has meant that I am looking at the transition as integral to all other aspects of my life- and therefore seeking to achieve balance.     

Kim, Nottingham

The workshop has helped me to see some of the broader options available to me. I also got lots of thought and ideas from other graduates who have experienced what I am going through.

I enjoy my day job tremendously but have always had the nagging desire to be an author.

With the support of my coach I have also developed further plans for writing a book.

Suzanne, York

I have come away with a clearer focus of what I need to do to achieve my career goals.

Gave me new ideas about how to manage my personal career in our large and growing organisation which has up to now been quite daunting.

Samantha, London

My world fell apart when I was made redundant after 15 years in the media and marketing industry. My coach helped me work through the initial disappointment/loss, fears and anxieties. My knee-jerk reaction was to immediately look for work as a marketing executive but knew that the industry was making cuts all over the region resulting in quite a hopeless situation. My personal coaching sessions helped me to step-back, understand my strengths and weaknesses and inspired me to develop my own marketing business which has now been thriving for over 4 years and growing.
