My Story

Like most things worth doing, changing your job or your career takes some legwork.

And I should know!

To date, I have been a Marketing Director, a freelance Marketing and Comms Consultant, a Reflexologist, a Genealogist (ask me later…), and a Career Coach.

Over my 20 years plus of working life I have had 43 different roles (racking up around 4 per freelance year) so I know a thing or two about changing both jobs and career.

As a self-confessed 'course-junkie', Career Coach and Marketing Expert, I have combined these skills to create a one-stop-shop to give you the confidence, mindset and meticulous preparation to change career.
