What My Clients Say…
Neil Jones, Global Managing Director, Informa.
I have had the pleasure of working with Miranda twice as a personal coach. The first time was when I was appointed Managing Director of Carat initially on an interim basis and had 3 months to prove that I was capable of taking on the role permanently. The advice, confidence and strategic insights that she gave me played a fundamental role in me being appointed to the role full time after only 6 weeks.
I continued to work with Miranda during my first 3 months in the job and her calming presence, excellent listening skills and ability to quickly get to grips with the real issues that would quickly make a difference proved invaluable. 8 years later I worked with Miranda again at my own expense, as I knew that she would really help me settle in to a new job at a business that was trying to go through transformational change in a very tough media sector. Once again her calm demeanor and ability to identify the things to do that would quickly make a difference really helped me to successfully settle in to the new role.
Tess Alps, Chair Thinkbox
“In 2005, the management team at PHD worked extensively with Miranda to re-energise the agency after a difficult period for the company. By using a range of techniques – some with the individual, some for the group – Miranda enabled a deep understanding of where the company was, where we wanted it to go and how to get there.
During this period, Miranda was never less than wholly engaged. Her empathetic but forensic approach encouraged us to go further than we would have otherwise dared, and we developed a huge sense of trust in her. The outcome of this work was transformative for the agency and for many of us personally.”
Deborah Parkes, Entrepreneur and NED
I first engaged Miranda as a coach over 15 years ago when I was running a number of project teams with very different leaders on each. I wanted each to have the benefit of her counsel as they thought about their strengths and weaknesses and the affect that had on others development too. It proved to be a really valuable exercise, that not only the leaders benefitted from but the performance of their teams overall.
Since then, I have worked with Miranda on my own mindset and business strategy on two separate occasions. I have trusted her to challenge me on my direction and whether the decisions that I was making would ultimately give me the outcomes that I wanted. She has a very interesting approach to helping you find clarity, when situations seem complex.
I can honestly say that Miranda has helped me to make better decisions through asking the questions that others would not – a rare, empathetic talent.
