HELLO

I'm Nikki

I'm a London based executive coach, passionate about helping leaders be their best selves and to unlock the brilliance of those around them.

 

About You

You care about your business, your goals and the people you work with.


You know your priorities and want to deliver against an ambitious agenda, in an ever-changing environment.

Perhaps you're a strategic HRD who knows what's needed to keep your leadership teams aligned and inspired - but don't the bandwidth to do it yourself.


Or you're a business unit leader who knows that to get better commercial results, you need engaged, high performing teams - but you're not sure how to get there.


Either way, you're looking for a trusted partner, who can understand your specific situation, and help you move forward.

 

Here's where I come in

I've led my own team, so I know the challenge of meeting objectives, delivering through others, supporting their growth, and having limited resources.

I've also been part of a departmental management team, understanding the pressures the business is under and the impact this has on the people who work there.

As an internal Learning and Talent Partner, my experience spans across multiple industries and cultures.  From Burberry to BTPret A Manger to the London Stock Exchange and on to Fortnum & Mason.

And an external coach and facilitator, I've helped tech start-ups and luxury retailers, global logistics companies and local decorating firms.  I learn about your business, your people, your aspirations - and I help you get there.

One of the core aspects I bring to my coaching is an ability to dynamically respond to my client’s needs whilst keeping hold of their overarching goal.

 

How we work together

Together we unpick exactly what it is that you want to achieve.  Who you want to be as a leader.  What motivates you.  What strengths you can leverage and what assumptions might hold you back.  


We create a vision: an overarching goal to hold on to as you navigate conflicting priorities, office politics and day-to-day struggles that are inherent in adapting to shifting expectations.


We work together to progress towards this goal, deepening your self-awareness, exploring different perspectives and identifying strategies to move you forward.  We meet monthly to maintain momentum, either face to face or virtually via Zoom.


At the end of our time together - usually between 3-6 months - we review progress against the goals you set at the beginning and gather feedback from those around you to gain extra input as we reflect on your journey. 

 

WHY SHOULD I BE YOUR COACH?

I’ve over a decade developing the individuals and teams - so I can help you too

Whether it’s designing and facilitating bespoke workshops, running Team Purpose or Dynamics sessions or coaching leaders 1:1, I’ve dedicated my career to helping others succeed in theirs.  

I’ve worked across multiple industries and countries - so I understand the context you work within

My career has spanned luxury fashion, telecommunications, food retail and financial services within FTSE 100 and privately owned organisations ranging from 1,000 - 100,000 employees around the world.  

I have a nuanced appreciation of cross-cultural dynamics - so I can help you navigate international contexts 

I was born in the UAE, brought up in Hong Kong, worked Shanghai for two years and have held regional and global roles partnering across APAC, EMEIA and Americas.  I now live in London and can coach clients globally.

I have qualifications that are directly relevant to what I do - so I can bring my best self as your coach

To be successful in what I do, I’ve invested heavily in my own professional development.  After graduating from Cambridge, I later completed a MSc in Organisational Behaviour and an ICF accredited Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching. I hold psychometric qualifications including Insights Discovery, EQi 2.0, and NEO PI-R.   I’m always on the lookout for new ways to learn and grow.
