Do you need help with training for interviews, interview mock, presentations, public speaking, confidence building and mind management or career progression?
I help people like you find their voice and deliver better performances when it matters most.
Here is the solution I offer:
Achieving a better performance in job interviews involves reducing nervousness, boosting confidence, enhancing communication skills, increasing situational awareness, and improving your ability to decipher unspoken cues from interviewers. Together, we will refine these aspects for your interview success.
Finding your voice means becoming a more compelling storyteller and skilfully setting the scene when presenting STAR examples, I will guide you in creating a clear and comprehensive context for your interviewers, making their job easier and ensuring your stories leave a lasting impression.
Effectively selling yourself requires showcasing quantifiable results achieved in various projects and roles. I will help you highlight your value through concrete accomplishments, making your skills and expertise shine during interviews.
Mastering career transitions and explaining reasons for leaving a job confidently, without hesitation, and with precision, is essential. Through personalized coaching, you will learn how to navigate these topics with ease, ensuring you present yourself as the ideal candidate for any role.
Perfecting challenging and personal interview questions, such as inquiries about your weaknesses or past failures, involves training you to reword the questions in your mind, transforming them into more manageable queries. With this technique, you can respond confidently to the revised question while still addressing the essence of what was asked. This nuanced approach ensures that you answer the interviewer's query effectively and professionally, highlighting your expertise and suitability for the role.
I offer a tailored solution that enhances all aspects of your interview performance.

Why my solution works:
For over 20 years, I have led teams, trained, coached, and empowered diverse individuals and groups, gaining extensive experience in mentoring hundreds of people from various backgrounds. My expertise spans across different career levels, from graduates and early-career analysts to seasoned managers and senior leaders, in both small and large organizations, helping them achieve more fulfilling careers in finance and many other areas.
My coaching centres on emotional intelligence (EQ), which I believe plays a pivotal role in both job interviews and one's career.
Emotional intelligence is often associated with people skills, but its impact on fostering innovation and creativity within an organization is an aspect that is frequently overlooked in discussions about job interviews and career advancement.
Showcasing your ability to be innovative during a job interview can make you the standout candidate for the job. Learn more about EQ and how it can help you in your next interview.

Skilfully selling yourself during a job interview can greatly increase your chances of being hired.
Here is why it matters:
Have a Clear Purpose: Enter the interview with a clear agenda to demonstrate what you can contribute to the organization. Understand the issues they face and illustrate how you can help solve them.
Avoid Passivity: Interviews often become one-sided, resembling question-and-answer sessions. Many candidates mistakenly adopt a passive stance, merely responding to questions as if in an exam, hoping for a job offer.
Seize Control: I have observed many candidates who passively answer questions instead of steering the conversation. They miss opportunities to showcase their skills or align themselves with the job requirements.
Engage in a Conversation: Job interviews are essentially conversations where control is negotiated. The goal is to transform the interview into a lively discussion, where both parties ask questions and openly discuss topics. If you do not aim for this open dialogue, you risk being forgettable and missing out on a job offer, especially for mid to senior-level positions.
Remember, being proactive and engaging in a genuine dialogue can make you stand out and significantly improve your chances of securing the job you desire.

As a result, I strongly believe that coaching for interviews has to involve a lot of practice interviews or mock interviews to ensure the best possible preparation for your next live interview. My coaching sessions resemble interactive 1-on-1 workshops. They provide a secure environment for us to explore what works best for you given your individual situation.
During a job mock interview I will be able to identify improvement opportunities relating to the structure of your responses, the pace of your delivery, and many other aspects of your performance such as presenting yourself effectively, building a strong rapport with the interviewer, good body language, and most importantly, your mindset prior and during the interview.

Answering all interview questions perfectly does not guarantee you a job offer.
