    Vicki Marinker candid career coach

    I turned to Vicki for help planning the next stage…let’s call it the ‘autumn’…of my career. Her straight-talking approach and pragmatic outlook totally resonate with me and the outcomes were just fantastic. Vicki created a personal coaching plan around some specific practical goals and flexed this as needed throughout the process. The end result is regained confidence and eyes wide open to the fact that there’s still so much more in life to come.

    From my first conversation with Vicki, I knew I had made the right decision by asking her to be my career coach. Vicki is approachable and asks the right questions to enable you to focus on the things that are important to you for your next career move. Throughout our sessions, we identified key strengths, as well as how to overcome imposter syndrome which many women returning to work suffer from. She provided fantastic support during a particularly difficult time.

    Vicki was brilliant at helping me to figure out what I really wanted to be doing, what was most important to me in a role and an organisation and to build the confidence to go for it. She’s straight-talking and no-nonsense but in a kind and genuinely coaching way, helping you think and plan with much greater clarity – and when I was offered a fantastic new position, she was one of the first to call to say congratulations.
