I’m so glad that you are here. It means that you’re seeking change and that can only ever be a good thing. As they say, the only change that we shouldn’t experience is change that comes too late.
These recent times have been so incredibly tough and the need for resilience, agility and strength has never been greater for individuals and businesses alike. Everything from home working, home schooling (I’m a Mum of two, I feel the pain!!!), to even just dealing with this miserable weather… it’s all tough.
However, I’m a big believer in looking for the silver linings and the opportunities that adversity brings. The past year has lead many people to review and question their previous ‘norm’ and look for ways to improve. For some that has been in the form of exercise or learning something new. For others it’s time to look in the mirror and have that chat with themselves and grab the opportunity to breakthrough the self limiting ceilings that experience or environment has created. This is with both personal and professional hats on and the same can be said for businesses who have had to be more agile in their thinking than ever.
It is with all of this in mind that I have created Dragonfly. This business is built on the pillars of PASSION, PURPOSE, PEOPLE & PERFORMANCE and is geared so that I can share my experience with others in order that they too can break through their own limitations.
To give a bit of background, I am not one of these motivational types who has sailed through life with an abundance of perceived good luck and never had an off day. Quite the opposite. I started life a painfully shy soul, who spent teen years being parented in an incredibly loving but incredibly strict environment, whilst also attending an all girls school who drilled in to us that ‘we were independent’, ‘we could do or be anything we wanted’. That may well be but being a teen who was trying to embrace an independent drive whilst then having to adhere to strict rules and restrictions made for quite a conflicting time… My parents were amazing but their generation finished school at 15, got married and women had children and made dinner so there was no expectation that I would have a career let alone a successful one at a senior level… So there my own limitations, my ceiling was set. I was just that girl who was shy and would work until she had babies…. It didn’t quite work out like that. As I went through GCSE’s and suddenly came out with a set of results that opened the doors to A levels; and then a set of A levels that opened the doors to university – well, who knew!! Suddenly my world expanded in a way that would change my life forever…. Whilst my world was suddenly bigger, the self limiting ceilings remained and it has taken many years and some effort and commitment to realise these limitations existed and that beyond them there was so much more. My journey was self taught and as I say took me some time. So it is my pleasure to now share what I learned and help others.
Along my way, I went from strength to strength and have worked within large successful corporates driving business growth and developing others along the way; and I have also worked with small to medium size businesses who are functioning but not optimising what they have.
I’ve experienced steep learning curves and had to navigate all sorts of business challenges but each time I have created transformational change within these businesses and delivered sustainable tangible results. So, I want now to share my experience and use my deep knowledge of business and people to help other businesses succeed.
Through Dragonfly, I have created two bespoke programmes; one specifically for women who want to develop in leadership [Leading In Heels] and the other that looks at the psychology of success in a much more holistic way [Mind Body Business] and works with businesses to improve performance through enhancing the ‘whole’ individual(s) who are critical to success. These compliment the 1:1 coaching and Mentoring that I offer. I have worked with many people over the years, at all levels, and have helped people to carve their career paths, overcome limiting fears or confidence issues and it is so lovely to see their success and where they are now. Hugely fulfilling and I’d love to do the same for you.

Take care, stay safe and believe that you are capable of so much more than you realise
