I have learnt a lot about myself, my self confidence has increased and I am much clearer about the kind of leader I want to be.

Olwyn has mentored me since 2018. Her experience of our industry, coaching methods and her knowledge and application of neuroscience has been hugely beneficial to me. I have learnt a lot about myself, my self confidence has increased and I am much clearer about the kind of leader I want to be. I have greatly benefited from my time working with Olwyn
Olwyn is going a great job supporting many of our leadership team in Dell Technologies across EMEA – I have seen at first hand the very positive impact Olwyn’s coaching has had on their development and growth – with so many examples of strong career development and advancement (three leaders are great examples). I still often reference in career discussions my own direct coaching experience with Olwyn (many years ago) which had a massive impact on my leadership style, development and success over the last 10 years.

The insight you gave the team on change was incredible
Steve Gilliver Chief Human Resources OfficerSUSE
Thank you so much for your contributions this week. We ended up having an incredible Summit and the insight you gave the team on change was incredible. Thanks again and look forward to our ongoing collaborations.
Olwyn provided executive coaching for me through a period of key career progression. This time was incredibly valuable in extending my awareness, consideration and strategies for a number of valuable leadership principles: how to motivate and inspire, delegation, resilience, communication, development of personal leadership style, and many more. Outside the tangible benefit of having the chance to bounce ideas off someone as experienced, personable and insightful as Olwyn, I found the pace, structure and quality of learning at our sessions incredibly powerful for my personal and professional development. Thank you Olwyn!

Olwyn has had a deep impact on my career and persona
Chantal Bray, Global Head of Pension RiskHSBC
Olwyn is always focused, prepared for the discussions and a great listener. She has the magical words that are just needed for any sort of situation! We discussed many aspects of stakeholder management, leadership skills, ‘gravitas’, presentation tips, managing time, personal brand: you name it, she has experience with it. Olwyn has had a deep impact on my career and persona. I think of her often when I am in more dire situations: ‘what would Olwyn do/say?’ Always inspiring!
Olwyn truly challenged me to think very differently and kept pushing me back to what I needed to focus on to be a more successful leader. She helped me to spend time thinking about this and reflecting on different approaches I could consider taking and sometimes she just helped me see the “wood from the trees”. I want to express my thanks to Olwyn for holding me true to investing time in my development and guiding me on this new journey and new experience, it’s much appreciated and I know there is still more to come!

Olwyn has skilfully enabled the team to clarify our values and priorities and concentrate our energies and skills on turning our vision into reality
Lesley Yeo, Director of Clinical ServicesRichmond & Twickenham Primary Care Trust
Working with Olwyn has allowed us an opportunity to look at how we operate as a team, acknowledge our differences and strengths and explore how we work with and capitalise on this diversity. In providing a framework and space in which to think and reflect, Olwyn has skilfully enabled the team to clarify our values and priorities and concentrate our energies and skills on turning our vision into reality.
It has helped me identify a much better way to approach Personal Development with things that I may have been ducking or choosing not to prioritize enough. She has the skills and experience to make me feel uncomfortable enough that we are reaching the root cause of some of my development areas. I think in the speed of business at Microsoft it is easy to put this stuff to the bottom of the list, when actually it demands more attention. It is a safe conversation where vulnerabilities or weaknesses can be discussed. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and this has been a real benefit to me.

I have been using your techniques and have had some great feedback
Bobby McCallum, Global Category Manager - Work Place Services, Fleet and TravelAgilent
I have been using your techniques and have had some great feedback – focusing on 1 or 2 max points each call. My particular focus has been: Delivery – clarity and brevity of communications; Trigger points – keep aware of these – advance preparation of what I anticipate during the call. When I have used the techniques I notice a marked difference in my meeting performance.
Olwyn is a thoughtful, adaptable and highly strategic coach. I found her immensely useful whilst transitioning to joining our Group Executive Committee. Her input led to meaningful and long-lasting behaviours and outputs. International in nature and approach, she is unscripted, but well-prepared.
