I have over 26 years professional experience in a variety of commercial roles. In my last corporate role I was the HR Director for a global organisation of 80,000 employees worldwide and 7,500 employees in the UK. I was responsible for the HR Shared Services (including payroll) in the UK, Ireland and Netherlands with the Heads of HR Operations across the globe in 70 countries reporting to me. My remit was systemisation, globalisation and consistency of policy and processes across the globe.
Earlier in my career, while working for a smaller UK based financial services organisation, I held dual senior HR and operational roles which enabled me to develop a commercial approach to HR matters.
I am a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development and I hold a green belt in lean six sigma – a methodology that helps to reduce waste and optimise processes, resulting in both short and long-term strategic benefits in business.
Why Kath became a business coach
Through battling cancer in my early teenage years, I have overcome many struggles personally, in education, in health and in life. I was supported by friends, family and professionals during that time and since then, I have always wanted to ‘give back’ and help others. This is why I chose to become a business coach and start my own HR consultancy. I want to share my knowledge and experience with those who need support and guidance to achieve their goals. I want to help others overcome challenges with positive outcomes – because we all deserve the very best in life.
What to expect
As a business coach, I will work with you to help you and your business grow. I have a logical, process driven mind and I love to get stuck into systemising businesses! I offer an external, impartial view on your business and I will hold you accountable to taking action to maximise its potential. I have a passion for ensuring that everyone recognises and seizes opportunities to be their best.
I want to make a positive contribution to your business and see it flourish. I will partner you through the journey and will feel every bump and the many successes along the way with you.
Always there with calm but insightful guidance and questions. I always feel that my Action Coach is 100% committed to me as a person and my business.Davis Saunderson - VLS LTD
It was so simple and made so much sense! I am the World's most UNorganised person and I never thought I would have time to do the course, let alone put actions into place.Julia Clifford - iCAN Health and Fitness
It gives me clarity, focus and a plan on what needs doing to move the business forward towards my goals. It's great fun and the other people in the coaching group are such a support.Jill Davies - Granite 5
Working with ActionCOACH has had a huge impact on me and my business. My coach doesn't tell me what to do, but has a canny way of asking the right questions that lead me to make my own decisions. I find the opinion of someone outside of my business very useful to bounce new ideas off and i now have clearly defined goals with a route map on how to achieve them. Thank you. I wish I'd met you 20 years ago!Paul Youngs - Expert Print Management Ltd
