An experienced facilitator and trainer, I offer bespoke programmes designed to meet specific needs of organisations.  My experience of working in corporate organisations means that I am sceptical of a one size fits all or sheep dip approach.  I will spend the time getting to know you, your organisation, context and needs to design an individualised learning experience.

Some examples of areas of facilitation and training delivered include:

  • Foundation Leadership
  • Change Resilience
  • Influencing with Impact
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback

Learning is interactive and fun, combining accelerated learning techniques, NLP, neuroscience and systemic constellations.  Participants take ownership, internalise learning which can be applied practically in the workplace.

“Gayl has worked for me on coaching assignments and has done a great job. Gayl takes time to fully understand what the underlying issues are and then she finds ways to overcome the problems. She knows her areas of expertise and is always thorough. Gayl has integrity and I trust her to do a good job.”

“A great day with Gayl completing a section of work on team alignment. My team have come along way, thanks to Gayl we have some positive results to show for it. Very well planned, organised and executed. Thank you.”

James Crawford
Head of Marketing, Vet4Pets

“Gayl has the ability to work with you to create a program that will engage with a team, open up a topic and then facilitate that in a team coaching environment. She guides you /the team through a process of understanding and enables them to see the challenge that they are trying to address. This is done in a challenging but open way and then enables the team to draw out the conclusion(s) themselves. Very creative, very pragmatic and delivers.”

former Head of IT Bayer UK/Ireland

“Gayl worked with us with on leadership and team development, introducing both theoretical and practical elements. She helped us understand both our individual styles and preferences, as well as our team strengths and dynamics and made us think about our leadership roles. I enjoyed Gayl’s thorough and professional approach, finding the sessions interesting, challenging and enjoyable, and we came away with some tangible actions. As a result, we are more focussed on leading rather than managing, coaching & developing our reports, and using our individual strengths more cohesively to achieve team goals and the business strategy.”

Isobel Davies
Senior HR Business Partner at Micro Focus

“As a team coach, Gayl’s work has had a highly beneficial impact, helping the team to improve trust, communications and effectiveness. Her skill and experience as a facilitator and coach, combined with her friendly and engaging style, really helped us to achieve our desired outcomes.”

Steve Painter
Owner at Painter Public Relations (formerly Head of Bayer Corporate Communications)

“I had the distinct pleasure to work numerous times with Gayl between 2013 and 2018, inviting her skilful and highly flexible approach to individual, team and group coaching.

Her attention to intent and outcomes and her courage to use more novel approaches allowed for exciting and rich team discussions and developments – including open feedback between individuals and leaders alike – enabling the development of true trust and purpose.

I admire Gayl for her courage hidden behind a calm and empathic professional approach. I have seldom worked with coaches who moved the needle on teamwork as much as Gayl.”
