“Liz has been a pleasure to worth with and integral to my progress as a young start-up CEO. I started working with Liz 1:1 around the point where I decided to branch out and set up my own company.
The pressures and pace of the start-up world are tough and having someone like Liz to work with on leadership and personal development has been key. Liz understands these pressures and gives practical guidance and support, helps the individual develop alternatives and solutions and suggests excellent ways to download and recuperate with various different techniques.
Overall, it would have been incredibly difficult to get through my first 6 months working on my own company without Liz’s support and I really look forward to continuing to work with Liz into the future.” Rob C – Feb 2015
