Teresa is an exceptional executive coach. Exceptional is a word that is often over-rated but with Teresa the word itself doesn’t do her justice. I had the privilege of working with Teresa in my role as CFO Global Circulation at The Economist Group. It was a pivotal point in my career, it was the culmination of several years of ascension to the top business finance role. Teresa helped me to better understand my key personality traits, and how to use the strengths and recognize the outliers in order to maximize my personal impact on the business.

About Teresa

I am a senior executive coach who spent the early part of my career working in professional theatre as a director, actor and published playwright. Over the past 20 years I have used the tools that theater directors, actors and playwrights employ in my work with leaders.   

Over 300 professionals, from C-Suite executives to middle managers from multi-national companies including American Express, Merck, Johnson & Johnson, Dentsu Aegis Network and Electrolux have benefited from my unique approach to leadership communication and so can you.


With so much at stake for businesses right now, understanding how to manifest agility and alignment in a diverse, multi-generational workforce is crucial to a leader’s success. It can feel frustrating for senior leaders to see business opportunities lost and careers derailed simply because they lack skills to influence, engage and inspire confidence.

Teresa's Impact

Working with Teresa, either in group sessions or one to one coaching is a joy. She has the remarkable ability to change your perspective on situations you thought you understood well. She brings her personal wisdom and empathy to executive coaching. Her approach focuses on understanding the core personality traits of her subjects and then coaching in how to use those to best effect as a leader. I can thoroughly recommend Teresa for both her executive coaching and presentation training programs.

Teresa is a delight to work with, her positive energy and enthusiasm is contagious. Her acting skills were the perfect background to help me prepare for an online one -hour master-class. Although I have spoken on many subjects to live audiences, online presentations are very different and much more difficult. She gave me many key pointers including that sometimes you need to speak about what you want to, not what is expected. She is an inspiring woman and great fun to work with. I highly recommend Teresa.

I worked with Teresa on public speaking a few years back and I found the techniques applied to be both unique and effective. Given Teresa's background in theatre she brought in professional actors for me to practice engagement during presentation and storytelling. If you are keen to enhance your influence during presentations and speaking opportunities, do to reach out to Teresa.

The Narrative and Trait Reports will form the basis for discussion during the complimentary follow up coaching session when we’ll explore how your instinctive reactions to people and situations at work have impacted your effectiveness as a leader, identifying areas where new approaches would be helpful.
