Testimonials

Dr Anita delivered a well presented talk about coaching older employees and younger managers managing older employees.

Ours was a small group of coaches and, following her discussions, everyone said how thought provoking Dr Anita was for our coaching group in Local government in this difficult time of national cut backs. A large number of our employees are made up of more senior service staff that have worked for the same authority all their lives, this can make it a very difficult time for them.

Anita was a wonderful person with whom to develop a set of competencies and activities as part of a European Commission-funded project. As joint collaborators on this through ECLO we found that we complimented each others’ skills and produced a product (VISIBLE Guide) that is now being used across Europe to enhance the knowledge, skills and attitudes of project managers.

I loved working with Anita, she was calm, confident and a consummate professional and very much hope that we will have the opportunity to work together again. Józefa Fawcett

Anita presented at a ‘Training Showcase’ event here at Maple House.

Her talk on ‘harnessing the skills of older workers’ was very well received by the audience. It’s clear that Anita has a wealth of knowledge and
I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Anita is also very personable and approachable.

Highly recommended!

Anita was engaged to help support Coaching Development within Birmingham City Council with a specific focus on coaching older colleagues as well as supporting managers who manage older colleagues.  This was on the back of local contacts who were aware that Anita had recently qualified for her Doctorate specialising in these areas. She provided a very practical and insightful session for BCC coaches.

This gave information, generated discussion and feedback as well as providing greater understanding for the needs of older workers, better understanding of issues leading to positive and sometimes challenging situations plus support for younger managers of older colleagues.

Anita mixes her expertise with an approachable and practical style and she gave a very helpful session to support BCC Coaches in developing their own competencies, knowledge and experience.

Anita has been invaluable in contributing to my knowledge and understanding of measuring the Return on Investment for learning development and in particular Coaching.

Her suggestions, recommendations and practical perceptive based on her extensive knowledge and qualifications within the field of ROI not only helped me achieve a postgraduate certificate but has also helped me develop new innovative strategies for measurement that my clients are benefiting from.  I cannot recommend her highly enough.
