Hi, I'm Kelly and I am a passionate and professionally accredited Leadership Coach who supports a wide range of ambitious CFOs, FD’s and Heads of finance to thrive, maximise their leadership potential and advance their career.

If you're looking for a coach who will constructively challenge you, will help you identify behaviours that don’t serve you well and who has practical frameworks to help you self-manage as a leader, then I am the coach for you.

My career started with Deloitte South Africa almost 15 years ago, and since then I worked for Deloitte Cayman Islands and now Deloitte UK.  As an experienced Director, I focus primarily in the financial services sector. I started Leadership Coaching because I am passionate about empowering people to play big and reach their potential they know they're capable of.

Drawing on my corporate and leadership expertise, my finance background and my experience as a leadership coach, I am uniquely positioned to support finance leaders. Blending my unique coaching style and use of practical frameworks I share with my clients, I am focused on enabling real sustainable change to drive business and personal performance.

Work with someone who understands you

I understand your struggles and challenges because I have likely faced and overcome similar struggles, or supported someone that has.

‘Leader’ I am an experienced Director within a large global organisation, and I have built and lead my own division. Talent management, influencing stakeholders, forecasting, presenting to boards... I’ve done it too.

‘Experience' I engage with CFOs, finance partners and finance leaders on a daily basis. I speak your language and I understand your business challenges. I am accredited with the International Coaching Federation and I have coached individuals and teams both informally and formally throughout my 15-year professional career.

'Business Focused' As an auditor who signs financial statements, I understand what drives numbers and performance, and what leaders can do to improve their business, both financially and operationally. 

‘Practical’ Talking can be productive, but actions matter because actions get results. I have a practical approach and can share tools, frameworks and strategies to make things happen.

My approach

My approach is such that I focus on the person, rather than the problem, so that leaders and teams develop the mindset, skills and capabilities to flourish and thrive and my support is no longer needed. My clients value my direct approach and “ruthless clarity” as well as ability to cultivate self-awareness and inspire action which allows them to create long lasting, impactful change. I focus on tangible outcomes that get results.

I will never tell you what to do. When it comes to you and your organisation, you’re the expert. Instead, I offer a creative space where you can develop your own solutions. I will do this by:

  • listening to you without bias or judgment
  • asking you powerful questions that will enable you to move forward with your goals
  • reflecting back to you what you cannot see yourself
  • challenging you and holding you accountable for your actions
  • assisting you in generating new ideas and options
  • sharing tips for improving your personal effectiveness
