Liz's clients come from the commercial sector (including the car, energy and finance industries), the NHS, central government and higher education.
She began her career in marketing for Unilever and continues to enjoy working internationally, speaking both French and Dutch. She is also an Associate Professor of Leadership and Change at Ashridge, where she is Programme Director for a highly regarded Master’s in Leadership, called GenerationQ.
Long before Covid-19 disrupted ways of working, Liz was running virtual action learning for a range of clients such as Senior Civil Servants, leaders in a German pharmaceutical company and clinical research professors.
As an executive coach Liz has always maintained a portfolio of senior coaching clients who value her ability to be a thought partner, combining empathy, and insights with a willingness to challenge. Liz is also an accredited supervisor of other coaches.
Some clients prefer face to face coaching or supervision, others enjoy the benefits of working virtually. Whatever the medium, Liz believes that what is important is an ability to build rapport and connection fast and to create the conditions for individuals, teams or boards to have honest conversations about tricky subjects or stuck patterns as a means of unlocking their potential for growth and renewal either personally or organizationally.
Liz is also a researcher and author. Her latest book, ‘Hope Behind the Headlines: Stories of leaders shifting culture in the NHS’ was published two years ago. She has also co-authored ‘Organizational Change: Perspectives on Theory and Practice,’ published by Oxford University Press and ‘Relational Change: A guide to the art and practice of changing organisations’, published by Bloomsbury in December, 2016.
