I have been a business executive for more than 30 years.

Since 2006, I have been partnering with leaders in support of organisational design, succession planning and search, team effectiveness, and business change.

More recently, my work has included transforming the business environment to support creative, innovative and inclusive cultures aligned to a complex, high-impact sustainable development agenda.

Companies I have worked with

I spent the first 15 years of my career in corporate contexts, bridging strategy, sales and marketing, and finance in companies including IHG, Sysco Foods, Burger King, American Express, MasterCard and AXA.  

This was followed by several years with two start-ups in the media tech and travel and leisure sectors, after which I decided to leverage these experiences into management consultancy.

I'm accredited as a Professional Certified Coach and Advanced Team Coach by the International Coaching Federation and qualified to use assessment and psychometric tools including Leadership Circle Profile, The 6 Team Conditions,  GC Index, Enneagram, Hogan and Predictive Index.

What makes me unique?

My Clients work with me because I connect with them as a confidante and peer, create a safe space for discussion without judgment -- but provocative -- and help them to see the possibility.

With a strong interest in helping individuals, established and developing leaders and organisations to create value, achieve their potential, find purpose and thrive, it was a natural progression for me to move into leadership advisory and coaching.

“It is better to believe than to disbelieve; in doing, you bring everything to the realm of possibility.”

- Albert Einstein

Here’s what my clients say

Our organisational change programme with Nina was an extensive one, covering a range of business issues and cultural dynamics to address. Nina's ability to and commitment toward supporting us was second to none. She is thorough and never loses sight of the goals at hand, although always with a human touch.

I'm celebrating being on the road to the next phase of my professional life and the endless possibilities that come with it.

Nina's ability to get to grips with the team dynamics and organisational culture were clear from the onset and really supported the programme, as we addressed how we could be more powerful, individually and as a Senior Leadership Team, in the face of difficult headwinds. She created an atmosphere of trust while we ensured focus and ambition.

Human Resources Director,

Travel & Leisure Company

There were things that I knew I needed to be able to do and thought I was not yet capable of doing them. Nina’s coaching helped me see that, in fact, I was.


Media & Entertainment Company

We wanted to work with Nina because we saw in her an ability to coach and mentor leaders and help our succession build, as a well-informed partner who sought to understand our business and culture. We made a wise choice. Nina doesn't rest on laurels and has stayed close through our transformation agenda, preparing us for growth and sale.

Nina does her homework and is prepared but also comfortable with 'moving parts.' She gives space and allows a team to find its way, to advance the agenda.

The executive coaching process with Nina provided deep introspection and searching thought. Following every session, I emerged feeling invigorated and energised to face into situations. Overall, I have been surprised at the magnitude of inner strength and peace this process has helped me build.

Strategy & Business Development Director,

Consumer Products Company

It is fair to say that Nina's team coaching was instrumental our business, which was itself at a crossroads as were those of us around the leadership table. We had issues to sort, were we to successfully emerge from being underperforming. Nina helped us to have difficult conversations, create learning and positively move onto new beginnings.


Business Services Company

When we decided to work with Nina, we were at a point where we knew we needed to change our approach and shift our culture. We had a strong history of R&D but had lost its innovative edge and needed to better. Nina got under the skin of things, as support and as foil to the leadership team, and helped us to find, for ourselves, a new path forward.

Managing Director,

Industrial Company

Nina’s mix of empathetic yet perceptive and straight-talking coaching really helped provide me with greater focus and clarity as well as rekindling my self-confidence at a critical point in my career. I can’t recommend Nina highly enough.
