Availability will depend according to the needs of the volunteer role and my external commitments at the time.
I am open to volunteering opportunities as coach / business coach / mentor to help people to move forward with any aspect of their lives, because my passion for supporting people to grow and learn new skills is very strong.
Since completing my training as a coach with Coaches Training Institute in 2015, my coaching has included individuals working on their confidence, finding their path in life and moving forward with their career. Pro bono includes within the fundraising team at The Prince's Trust, and as mentor for refugee entrepreneurs at TERN, periodically mentoring refugees to start their own business; providing coaching and support; including during lock-down when I mentored a refugee with her fashion business. I have had the privilege of working with a diverse range of people which has improved my cultural and social awareness and my interpersonal skills.
Supporting entrepreneurship in my local community, I have coached and mentored budding start-ups and new entrepreneurs to take their enterprise to the next level. Creating strong connections across various industries, I have built robust relationships with clients, suppliers, business contacts and external professionals.
I have also taught practical craft skills and upcyle skills to individuals and small groups through leading workshops in a fun and creative way. My millinery work has also informed my entrepreneurial coaching.
I am interested to coach/mentor people who want to move forward with any aspect of their lives, whether it be to help them find a job, or to encourage people to build their confidence, to listen to them and help them move forward. Equally, anyone who wants to start a business - I can be a sounding board and help them create steps to get nearer to their goals.
