You want to develop a meaningful business that will give you freedom, fulfilment and financial independence.
You want to feel proud of the impact you’re having in the world.
And you want to create a life that gives you time to enjoy the important things – like family, friends and travel.
You know what you want – you just don’t know how to get there.
That’s where I can help.
But how did I get here? Curious? Read on…
Nothing makes me happier than helping women build and grow a profitable business they love.
Watching my clients communicate their value, grow in confidence and create the life they dream of is the reason I’m here.
My mission is to help a million women believe in their true value and ability to run a successful business that supports a balanced and happy life.
I'm working towards this through my Dream Clients Blueprint system that breaks down what I've learned works over three-decades of marketing, communication and leadership experience, alongside my practical experience building a thriving business around a growing family.
Read on to learn more about how I developed this Blueprint.
I found success through three decades in business and entrepreneurship – but it hasn’t been easy!
Growing up in a single-parent home taught me how important it is for women to create their own support system – both financially and socially.
While working for Europe’s largest bank, in Geneva, I created a network for women to connect, grow and support one another. These women shared my desire to engage in meaningful work but craved more flexibility.
Their experiences gave me the courage to start my own business 15 years ago, when my first daughter was born. Instead of returning to the security of my leadership position I set myself up as a freelance corporate writer and internal communications consultant and worked while my daughter slept.
It was perfect.
I soon found myself working for Fortune 500 companies and UN agencies – as well as small businesses and solopreneurs – and quickly hit six-figures.
Outwardly I was a big success. Inwardly I was on the road to burnout.
Juggling work commitments with caring for my family meant I was working late nights and weekends to keep up with client demands.
I was overwhelmed and exhausted. Where was the balance I craved?
It was time to take back control.
Making big changes in my business gave me back the flexibility I desired and enabled me to work exclusively with my dream clients. I soon found myself coaching other women to do the same and sharing my insights on stages around the world.
The women I worked with all had one thing in common: they were struggling to connect with the right people and to communicate their true value in an inspiring and captivating way. And it was holding their businesses back!
Even the more confident among them had problems sharing their value in an authentic way: a way that helped them convert their dream clients, and to network and market their business without feeling icky or fake.
I quickly noticed the magic that occurred when I taught women to show up as themselves, to create more personal, meaningful connections and to communicate their true awesomeness in ways that felt natural.
I decided to create my signature business coaching programme, with the aim of reaching thousands more women with this life-changing knowledge.
And my Dream Clients Blueprint was born.
Five years later, The Dream Clients Blueprint has helped hundreds of women around the world grow in confidence and secure a flow of dream clients for their service-based business.
My popular business coaching programme gives you the tools you need to design and implement your own path to success.
It will help you:
Nothing makes me happier than knowing I’m helping other women grow in confidence, communicate their true value and feel proud of the impact and success they have created.
I’ve even won awards for it!
I’ve twice been awarded Acquisition International’s Most Influential Business Coach for Women (Europe), LinkedIn named me as one of the top 16 sales influencers to follow and one of their 15 most authentic contributors, I’m a TEDx speaker coach and I frequently appear on lists of the world’s top business coaches.
As well as supporting my clients, I reach thousands of business owners each day through my blog, podcast, public speaking and training– and I’ve shared thought leadership pieces in prestigious publications such as Forbes, FastCompany, Entrepreneur and Thrive Global.
I’m living proof that my methods work. Even when building your business part-time, or have a quieter personality. And you can experience them for yourself through my supportive coaching programme.
What I haven't told you is that I'm naturally introverted, and went through childhood labelled ‘the shy girl’. In fact, it wasn't until I moved to Switzerland at the age of 29 that I took steps to overcome my shyness and build my confidence.
As I found my confidence, my career took off, my network grew… and with it came opportunities to become an in-demand speaker, to join several prominent committees and to become a TEDx speaker coach for events in Switzerland and the UK.
I’m still the shy girl at heart. I’ve proved that you don’t have to be extrovert to succeed – and that quieter tactics work just as well when it comes to building your authority and credibility online.
Success needn’t be loud or pushy. You don’t have to change, or compromise who you are. My business coaching programme will help you show up authentically, to build meaningful personal connections, and to grow your business your way.
I’ve begun to share my journey from shy girl to confident leader, business owner and speaker in a series of books.
My first book – A Shy Girl's Guide to Networking – is available to order online and from all good book shops.
A Shy Girl's Guide to Confident Speaking is a chapter in the book: The Speaker Journey while A Shy Girl's Guide to Marketing Your Own Business is due for publication late 2023.
From my base in Switzerland, I help ambitious women around the world embrace, communicate and sell their true value – and, with it, attract more of their dream clients.
