With Julian Stanley
A qualified, empathetic executive, business, career and life coach, my passion and expertise lie in coaching individuals, teams and boards through change management, strategic and operational development processes, career and life transitions.
I draw on twenty-five year’s experience as a senior leader, CEO, MD and non-executive director in the education, employment and skills, business improvement, economic regeneration, youth arts, mental health and wellbeing sectors.
My approach focuses on enabling clients to think clearly, define their goals and produce effective organisational and personal action plans, using one-to-one coaching, group sessions and workshops. Designed to improve impact and to help executives and teams engage, embrace and implement change, these programmes also focus on innovation, productivity and working together creativity. I use my training and experience as a professional actor, theatre in education practitioner and broadcaster to help executives, managers, post graduate students and newly qualifed teachers develop their communication, public speaking, presentation and media skills.
Education sector, commercial and third sector clients include Cambridge University Primary School, Marks and Spencer, Royal Sun Alliance, BP, Muscular Dystrophy UK, the sight loss charity Vista, the NHS and rare disease charity, Findacure.

It is a highly effective way to tackle tough situations and cope with new challenges. Sessions can reveal new approaches, ideas and insights about the way you view yourself and your abilities and plan for sucess.
