Ailsa draws on over twenty years of strong business performance, extensive experience working at senior levels and understanding of the nature of complex, large organisations to create strong relationships and trust; resulting in success for her clients.
She sees her role as a “thinking partner” and is inspired by seeing her clients succeed and realise sustained, positive change that will often go much wider than the original objectives.
Her approach is highly pragmatic, empathetic, client centred and results-focused. She is valued for her positivity, proactivity and warmth whilst maintaining the ability to constructively challenge her clients.
Ailsa specialises in 1:1 Women’s Leadership Coaching . As someone able to bring her own experience in senior business roles, in a male dominated business to bear, along with extensive experience in developing strong client relationships, Ailsa is well qualified to inspire female leaders to realise their full potential and achieve real, tangible results.
She demonstrates energy and commitment to working with women, as a “thinking partner” seeking to inspire them to lead with the highest levels of confidence and to succeed as a female leader, especially in male dominated sectors.
Prior to becoming an executive and women’s leadership coach, Ailsa worked for BT in senior client centred business roles. She has extensive experience in developing and managing executive level relationships and understands the nature of complex and large corporate organisations. Having been motivated by delivering for her clients throughout her career, Ailsa made a natural progression into executive coaching and retrained prior to setting up her own practice.
