Who am I? Text Open

A short (in stature only!) Scottish woman who has a passion for helping individuals and teams in organisations be better leaders. I firmly believe that by changing the consciousness of business you can positively impact the world. Whilst also being highly successful commercially.

How do I describe what I do? Text Open

I’m a highly experienced coach, trainer and speaker and the principal consultant of Wilson Associates Limited, the leadership development consultancy I founded in 1989. I have worked with many FTSE 100 companies and have both designed and delivered bespoke leadership development programmes and facilitated hours of coaching in the thousands. I’m also the author of numerous articles and my highly acclaimed book “The Little Black Book of Career Success”.

It’s hugely rewarding seeing people change and develop for the better. It is also very varied and gives me time to have fun, stay fit and hang out with family & friends.

The other thing I hear a lot is “its great having you around – you really make us laugh”.

What is an unknown or interesting fact about me? Text Open

The first job I had was driving a truck in the East end of Glasgow in the 1970’s. It taught me a huge amount about people, not to mention some extraordinary swear words!
