PItch Consulting and Presentation Rehearsal

A UK design and engineering consultancy was bidding for multiple packages of work on a £16bn infrastructure project. Each bid presentation was high-stakes and always at short notice. 

Hilary worked with each bid team to clarify their key messages, to ensure optimum persuasive support and to structure each presentation carefully for impact.  Rehearsal coaching - often to the last minute - built the skill and confidence of the presenters.

The outcome for the firm was a series of successful wins, well beyond their initial expectations and a large amount of work.  Now all they have to do is deliver it!

 

Executive Coaching.

An IT manager at an investment bank was uncertain about handling new responsibilities and managing a larger team in a complex environment . Beliefs, assumptions, blocks and patterns of behaviour were considered through the coaching over a number of months.  Relationships and confidence improved, and promotion and greater work satisfaction ensued.

This IT manager said, "I found Hilary to be very passionate about what she does, I felt her structure and approach to the sessions were good and I was able to build trust quickly, which I feel is key for this kind of relationship. Hilary has always been very supportive and reassuring, assisting me through difficult decisions and the like. I also found Hilary to be very approachable."

Director, global corporation

"...when she’s coaching, you don’t get insecure about being judged, the coach thinking of something else or the coach not having faith that you will find the answers yourself/together. It's very much like she’s holding your hand while you find your way from darkness to light."
