Deborah Goodall – Facilitator and coach
My working life began in corporate communication and continues to be about helping individuals and organisations develop the vision, values and skills that allow for genuine communication and success in business.
Fascinated by the human ability to link mind to mind through the precision of language and the evocative nature of story, I am passionate about helping people apply these skills in a number of different work settings. They can then form deeper connections and drive greater progress at a personal, team, brand or organisational level.
I am a qualified coach, NLP Master Practitioner and a communications strategist and facilitator with expertise in change management and storytelling. Since 2001, I have helped hundreds of business leaders develop a compelling business story and a style that engages and attracts. My business background spans more than 20 years in law, industry, marketing services and in healthcare organisations. I was Head of Communications at Merck in the UK and MD of a specialist PR consultancy before moving on to work as a consultant, trainer and coach.
I have worked extensively in healthcare, marketing services, pharmaceuticals and technology with clients ranging from multi-national corporates to charitable foundations and owner-managed businesses.
I work with you to help you have the conversations that you most want.

I work by combining my communications expertise, business experience and my coaching skills to achieve sustainable results. I am a Certified Co-Active Coach and hold a coaching diploma from CTI - Coaching Training Institute, accredited by ICF, International Coaching Federation.

Adrian Goodall – Executive coach and facilitator
Throughout my career I have always enjoyed working with clients and colleagues to discover and create the best ways of moving forward to achieve results which work. In addition to the knowledge and skills involved in any role, that usually includes clarity of direction and strategy, decisiveness and confidence, strength, leadership and a willingness to do things differently.
I believe that the process of coaching is one of the most effective ways to build these qualities and actions in a way that is truly 'owned' by the client. I also know from my own experience just how powerful coaching can be in creating change.
My experience spans over 25 years in business, including 18 years in equity markets with Goldman Sachs, UBS and others, as well as senior management experience in industry and in venture funding. I am a member of the International Coach Federation having trained with Coaching Development.

I am trained in effective education, behaviour change and group work facilitation techniques.

I am a senior communications consultant with over twenty years' consulting experience.
During my career I have specialised in working with international organisations and have a wealth of experience running international teams and communications programmes for clients such as Microsoft, Dell, Panasonic, Nokia, Abbott and GE Healthcare.

Theresa Coligan – Executive coach and workshop leader
I am a senior executive coach and Master NLP Practitioner specialising in confidence, executive stress management and resilience-building.
I spent 18 successful years in the advertising, media and publishing industries, including roles at Saatchi and Saatchi, Zenith Media and more than 10 years at board level. My last role was as Sales Director of Emap Magazines running a large department with a budget of £150m and a place on the Executive Board. The people-side of business had always been my passion, so it was a natural progression for me to re-train and launch my own coaching practice in 2006.
During the last 12 years, I have used my coaching skills in many different industries including media, publishing, advertising, PR, entertainment, recruitment, finance, construction, healthcare and utilities. My business experience means I understands the challenges of working in fast-paced, highly dynamic industries and can work at all levels from CEOs through to executives. I help clients get straight to the heart of the issue resulting in surprisingly rapid results.
