Developing leadership for 21st century business

In our complex and fast-changing world, technical expertise is not enough to meet the demands of 21st century leadership. Our organisations can't flourish without building bridges of understanding that connect people. I develop successful people and help them work with and through others to create impact in their organisation and the wider world.


As a development specialist with leadership experience, I help leaders learn, transform and perform to their potential.  I'm a trusted partner for firms wanting to succeed through building up and combining the strengths of their people.  I serve clients through 1-1 executive coaching, team development and bespoke workshops for behavioural and transformational change.

  • I've a passion for developing people, helping executives mature as capable and confident professionals who can leverage their experience, attitudes and behaviours as senior leaders.
  • I've a passion for partnering to get the best of people's combined potential, so that individual goals are aligned and the power of team-working is harnessed to bring sustainable success.
  • I've a passionate interest in the dynamics and communication between individuals and groups.  My clients gain awareness, more able to influence the dynamics by learning to connect more deeply and communicate more skillfully.

As well as developing people strategically, I offer a highly-focused presentation coaching service.  It's a tactical and powerful way to refresh or master the skills needed to connect with an audience and to shine when it matters most.

The most effective aspects of Hilary’s coaching were the company and interpersonal insight I gained; a balanced approach and viewing the coachee as a whole person – not just the “job”. Hilary is wonderful, the best coach I have had the privilege to work with.
