“Having Sharon as a coach and mentor has been priceless and has helped me to feel much more prepared to face the challenges I have in my professional life.”

Executive Coaching Testimonials

In Sharon’s experience it is the holistic approach of the mentoring role that distinguishes it from other supporting roles such as coaching or counseling.

Chloe Challender

Senior Adviser, International Development Committee Clerk, Sub-Committee on ICAI, House of Commons
Sharon has been an inspirational coach and adviser, drawing on a wealth of high-level experience. I could listen to Sharon for hours about her career and ‘world view’ on issues such as success, work-life balance, and gaining promotion. However, rather than talking about herself, she is very good at listening and tailoring her insights and comments to the mentee’s needs.

I found Sharon to be particularly helpful about my wish to understand more clearly ‘what success looks like’. She is very good at taking a long perspective, with a holistic view of what makes a good life (with work a key component of that). Another strong point is her motivational advice. I have come away from this process feeling confident and inspired, and that I could successfully seek world domination should I so wish!

Sharon has a particular interest in women at work, and has been incredibly helpful in helping me strategise about how gender equality with my workplace – the Houses of Parliament – could be improved.

I would advise anyone looking for a new perspective on their career to talk to Sharon. She is truly inspirational!

Lil Bremermann-Richard

Group Chief Executive Officer, Oxford International Education Group
I reached out to Sharon only a few weeks after I was promoted to Chief Executive Officer at my organisation. She was the perfect executive coach for me due to her outstanding track record as an executive and non executive in Private Equity backed businesses and PLCs but also as a woman, a wife and an involved mother of three beautiful kids. Sharon has been great support in my journey, she has helped me look at my leadership skills, understand myself and those around me as well as help me see clearly when my vision gets clouded by busyness, pressures and day to day running of a business. Having her to talk to, makes a huge difference. She is the person someone in my role can go to who certainly wants one to succeed, has no personal interest in the decisions made and will tell it as it is. I am extremely grateful for what Sharon has supported me to achieve and have no hesitation to recommend Sharon to other CEOs or those aiming for a leadership career.

Colin Crooks

CEO at Shell Energy Retail Ltd
Sharon really helped me as an executive coach as I transitioned from a Shell corporate role to CEO of an acquired company. Her broad exec and board experiences were invaluable in providing insights to help me think through how I approached the CEO role. She is now supporting me in preparing for a NED role myself.
