I was very fortunate to have met Simona and to have had the opportunity to engage with her for executive coaching.
I have been doing the same role for many years and there were definitely a few things which needed ironing out, alongside other areas which needed time to consider and Simona offered appropriate challenge to enable me to face these.
When embarking upon executive coaching I had not considered that we may look at other aspects of my life outside of work, which I found really helpful. Simona has a friendly and confident style but at the same time not leaving obvious issues unaddressed. This was a great experience and I would wholeheartedly recommend Simona and for all other Exec’s to give Coaching a go.

I have worked in FMCG for the last 25 years, predominantly food businesses in a sales and marketing role, latterly in General Management and Senior Commercial roles. I decided 5 years ago to cut loose and start my own business as an entrepreneur, unfortunately things did not go to plan which affected my confidence and belief in myself, this made me question what I wanted to do for the next 20 years.
Working with Simona helped me focus on a plan and set of practices that gave me my confidence back, motivated me again to establish my core values and help my mindset of never giving up. I have gained greater clarity and focus and a better regime of working practices that have enabled my business to thrive and allows me to enjoy quality family time and work life balance.
The best coaches encourage a positive mindset and ask probing questions to help individuals make the best of themselves in business and their personal lives, Simona certainly does this, she has a friendly engaging style and is very knowledgeable and supportive. I really enjoyed working with Simona and with the work we have done together I feel motivated and extremely positive about achieving my business and personal goals going forward.
The Titan brands website will be up and running by the end of 2020 and I have never been busier.
I am thoroughly enjoying helping challenger and purpose driven Food and Drink brands on their journey and can put my years of experience to good use and help brands be successful. I would highly recommend Simona to anyone looking to gain greater clarity and direction in their business and personal life.

I cannot stress enough just how incredibly valuable your coaching has been for me as I have negotiated the first 3 months of my new and exciting role. I have really valued your time and commitment to me, your supportive and encouraging approach, but equally challenging when required! – and the insights and clarity you have given me has been more than I could have imagined when we started out.
It really has been incredibly helpful and illuminating, and I will take from our sessions a number of key insights, which I carry with me in my day-to-day work. I must admit that none was more powerful for me than your words, “Be kind to yourself”.
THANK YOU so much!

Following a recent anonymous survey these were some of my fantastic clients’ results:
And here are some of their comments:
‘Simona was incredibly adept at being able to listen to what was really behind what I was saying, to identify root issues and challenges and then to help me to address them.’
‘[An] excellent mix of getting to the crux of procrastination and then moving ahead on the practical side.’
‘The insightfulness and different approaches used to help support delivery of my goals.’
‘ [Given] me the tools that has given me certainty to succeed and drive the business forward….’
‘Having an external source to support my development and to deal with aspects of the business that would not be appropriate to share [within the business]’
I worked with Simona during the final months of my degree, which was a particularly challenging time for me due to family illness. Whilst determined to see my degree through in spite of my circumstances, completing work had become difficult and very stressful. Simona enabled me to get clear on the end goal, develop a healthy mindset to overcome some personal barriers that were getting in the way of my success, and shared practical tools for taking action.
Simona was honest and fair – striking a perfect balance between the tough love that I needed whilst remaining empathetic and sensitive to my personal circumstances throughout.
I went on to graduate with the First Class Honours in my degree and feel strongly that Simona’s coaching and professional support in those last few months finally got me there.
Simona’s coaching extended beyond my academic goals too, providing emotional support and a friendly ear. With a focus on my personal development and genuine best interest, Simona has since continued to support my growth through ongoing coaching and guidance to clarify my career choices and self-development.
