Amy Brann

Professionally, I run an organisation that shares game changing insights from neuroscience. Essentially – I help people learn more about their brains.

I think we’re amazing creatures and it is a privilege to be alive at a time where the mysteries are being unravelled and new questions are emerging. Plus behavioural science helps me eat less cake.

I work best when helping people to expand their capabilities, engage their passion and enjoy their work, and whilst exploring all of that, having fun!

I deliver management and leadership development programmes, write and facilitate team strategy/creativity days and provide coaching for middle managers. I also enable companies to navigate through the ambiguity of change by providing a clear framework for the future.

My area of specialism is presentation coaching, on a one to one or group basis. I concentrate on “storytelling” and dealing with inner demons that can affect a presenter’s performance.

How do you do it?

I use cognitive behavioural techniques and tools to help people unpick their thinking. I work hard to get to know my clients creating an environment that feels calm and secure, but also light hearted. I like to keep things moving and ensure that they remain focused on what they want to achieve. This approach is mirrored in the training I do. As a trainer I want people to enjoy the workshops I run, as well as learn something. Both approaches have served me well in the large change management projects on which I have worked.

How do you do it?

My approach is all about easy innovation, simple insights and techniques that help you get to better ideas, more quickly. The accent is also on commercial creativity – how to have ideas that will boost revenues. I provide easy and interesting information that illuminates the creative process and we learn how to use the Idea Applications (Idea Apps) – simple tools that can be applied to any challenge, in order to generate relevant and deliverable innovation. People will be challenged to think differently and even behave differently in order to have awesome ideas My sessions are not like other sessions. We have great fun, because you have to have fun to create great ideas.

What are your areas of specialism?

1. My courses are different from usual creativity courses for two reasons:
I speak to all attendees, in depth, before the session so I understand their individual needs and requirements.
2. We focus on specific projects, relevant to your business – so we are having new and exciting ideas about stuff that really matters – to you.

Who have you worked with?

I work mostly in the publishing and media world and my current clients include The Financial Times, IPC Media, Haymarket Publishing and Future Publishing.

Sue Feehan

What do you do?

I show people how to write well when they don’t know where to start. I carry out group training and one-to-one sessions in business writing skills, with feedback based on clients’ work. I help clients to make writing choices that build careers, brands and business.

How do you do it?

Change your writing and you change your world. Writing is a direct link from our minds to the outside world, a reflection of who we are. Even in business, writing is personal. Are we dynamic and clear? Or passive and muddled? Good writing is a powerful skill in our business toolbox. It’s far more than a set of grammar and punctuation rules. It’s a process we can learn and use repeatedly. My style is fun and practical, full of exercises that cover various types of documents: my aim is to build confidence and take away the fear of writing.

What are your areas of specialism?

My style is holistic, approaching writing as a process that covers the following:

  • Purpose
  • Readers
  • Reaserach
  • Structure
  • Language skills
  • Editing and feedback

Who have you worked with?

Media is my key area, working with most major UK magazine publishers. I’ve also trained people working in the finance sector, for public bodies and professional institutions.

Why I love what I do?

Writing is the great connector, helping to form governments, rally causes, and create world-class brands. Soldiers even read Jane Austen as therapy in the trenches of WWI. How fabulous is that? We define our thoughts, laws and values in words. Great writing can achieve anything. What’s not to love?

What are your areas of specialism?

  • Performance management
  • Manager as coach
  • Management development

I’ve worked with a range of sectors largely in media, but spanning telecoms and sport sponsorship.

Why I love what I do?

I love what I do, as I love to see people grow and develop not only their skills but their confidence to embrace new approaches. The energy from working with great people who want to gain new skills and behaviours is infectious.

Kathy Reeves

What do you do?

I offer one to one coaching to release the potential in creative thinkers. I help you resolve problems and build on your strengths so you can leap forward in your career.

How do you do it?

Today’s jobs are stress filled, deadline driven and an exciting ride if you can hang on. It’s difficult to focus on your own performance or improve your ability because there is never enough time. That’s where a turbo boost from a coach can help.

I can help you eliminate the things that you keep batting away; things that cause you doubts, issues managing up or managing your team, things that gobble your time. A coaching session is a hothouse for new ideas, new ways to do things, ways to change the game with your team, your career or your clients.

What are your areas of specialism?

Often called executive coaching, my style of coaching isn’t limited to people with executive titles and isn’t in front of the rest of the team. It is individual coaching, one to one, related to your work or work/life balance. Together we’ll build on your success, look at ways of maximizing your potential and help you stay at the top of your game. I have a post grad Diploma in Coaching and am certified in Myers Briggs.

Most of my clients are in the broadcast and advertising industries. A few of the clients I currently work with are Channel 4, UKTV, M&C Saatchi, OgilvyOne, Kamarama, Red Brick Road, Channel Five and Nickelodeon

Why I love what I do?

I worked in the broadcast and advertising industries for over 20 years. I’ve held front line jobs, had budget responsibility and managed extensive teams. I started my own business as an executive coach when I realized that coaching was my favourite part of my job. The chance to work with creative thinkers and release their potential is a real privilege.

How do you do it?

I have developed innovative ways to help people better understand the nature of their human “system” – how it functions and thus how to manage themselves more effectively. As a former international athlete (Great Britain Rowing Team) and coach to World Championship Medallists, I value and build on the similarity between the ingredients necessary for success in sport and those which allow for optimal performance and fulfilment in our personal and professional lives.

In the coaching space, one of my key strengths is helping clients to recognise and achieve their potential, through breaking down limiting patterns and beliefs.I achieve positive lasting results by utilising my experience as an athlete and coach in high level sport, and this is underpinned by my professional qualifications and experience in Leadership, Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, NLP and EFT.

It is incredibly rewarding to see that the coaching, and tools I give people, enable them to be the best they can be – not only in their professional space, but also in their personal lives.

I give people a practical, user-friendly introduction to tools and methodologies designed to make the creation and deployment of key messages and other content easier for inhouse teams.

At its heart, what I do is facilitate productive exploration of how teams, departments and whole organisations function and present themselves and how that maps back to an organisation’s essential character and appetite for change.
