Coach: Sue Powell
If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.Thomas A. Edison
I have been working as a professional executive coach since 2003. I typically work with C-Suite and senior management including PLC board level, (and their teams), as well as private individuals wanting to make a career transition. I have worked with international clients in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia. Amongst the sectors that I’ve worked in are professional services, banking and insurance, education, engineering, retail, marketing and the public sector. My coaching style is described as direct, challenging, supportive and playful.
Professional Experience & Clients
Prior to becoming a trainer and coach, I had extensive experience in the planning, sales and marketing, customer service and business development of consumer brands for FTSE (The Financial Times Stock Exchange) 100 companies. Previously I have held senior roles including Marketing Director and was actively involved in the valuation and integration of two separate high profile corporate mergers. I have worked within large businesses including Whitbread, Virgin, Granada, and Colgate Palmolive and as a management consultant within leisure and hospitality including global assignments for Compass Group PLC.

“It gives me great pleasure to recommend Sue.
Working with Sue is a life changer for me, and I’m using “is” because I’m still benefiting from the coaching sessions she provided me. The key thing is to do this effort along with Sue in completing the exercises and reflecting on the questions she’s asking and words she’s saying. I am now a person who knows himself much better, who turned his fear of public speaking into one of his strengths and is building on it even further, and who’s “feeling the fear but doing it anyway”. The credit goes to Sue in helping me develop a style of leadership and a passion for change that is now so explosive that it influences everyone around it. In simple words, Sue is a tremendous coach with so much charisma, kindness, and an intelligent ability to change people.
I hope I remain friends with Sue forever, and I wish her all the best from the bottom of my heart.”
“Having experienced a number of business coaches in my career, I found Sue’s approach, style and knowledge to be second to none. She was very focused and taught me several new techniques in response to business challenges as well as never being afraid to constructively challenge my thinking!”
“Working with Sue helps me see clearly through to the nub of issues and enables me to work through career and personal related scenarios to get the best results. Having been a sceptic I am now a convert! Biggest impact: initially Sue helped me to adapt my leadership style so that I can be equal to the challenges thrown up by the varied factions of running a business.”
