I am an international management, leadership, career and business strategist, passionate about empowering people.

I support individuals and teams to understand that they and the people they lead, are the organisation. For greater impact and growth, focus on your people.

Everyone knows that organisations world-wide achieve results through their people. I encourage my clients to move things into sharper focus, guiding them to develop this practice of looking to their customers, employees and themselves.

People are at the heart of the solution – regardless of the business issues that need to be addressed.

Career Mentoring

I work with individuals like you, at all levels and across many sectors.

I support you in clarifying your career goals and in creating a clear roadmap to achieve them with greater confidence.

I guide you in understanding yourself and your motivations at a deeper level and how to be a leader among your peers, particularly in overwhelming work environments.

Interviews can be daunting, and preparation is definitely key to doing yourself justice. My professional support is tailored to your specific needs and focuses on getting you into the right mindset and taking you through some probable curveball questions.

I help individuals like you, get real results.

What People Are Saying

I engaged Charley because I was experiencing frustration for some time knowing that I needed to change direction in my career, but despite the benefit of numerous qualifications and extensive experience, I lacked direction and confidence as to my options or how to go about this.

I met with Charley for a consultation and knew immediately that we would work well together. Charley has a warm understanding approach and is quick to identity the self-limiting beliefs that were holding me back. In evaluating my career and experience, Charley took a great interest in who I am as a person, what motivates me, and where my key strengths lie. This stimulated a lot of consideration, reflection and honesty with regards to unearthing the aspects of me that require improvement and the unknown strengths that already exist. There was no hiding from Charley in that she held me to account, but the unearthing which was highly effective, was done compassionately and humorously. Charley displays an in-depth understanding of human psychology in her very effective approach.

Charley was a very effective coach and mentor to me. She instilled a confidence in me that I have no doubt will stand to me long into the future. I now have a road map with key actions which I am confident will take me where I need to go both in my career and my personal life. I have no hesitation in recommending Charley.”

Testimonials for training on ‘Communicating Effectively in a Nursing Environment’

Bon Secours Hospital, Dublin – January 2018

“Charley has been an exceptional mentor to me. She helped me to articulate my personal strengths and the highlights of my career in the best possible way to present during the interview. She boosted my confidence to a new level. The interview tips that she provided were extremely helpful.

​As a mentor she helped me find the better version of myself rather than trying to mould me to her perspective. I would highly recommend Charley to anyone who is looking for mentoring, interview preparation and who genuinely would like to practice and improve their managerial skills.”
