Coach

Vegard Olsen

“My work with ambitious entrepreneurs revolves around gaining clarity and significantly raising confidence.  A central part of this work is reminding yourself of why you do what you do gaining clarity about your uniqueness.

Many ambitious entrepreneurs have had bad experiences early in their career. That is one of the reasons they started for themselves and they really want to make a big impact. In my work I help leaders and entrepreneurs lift their confidence and sharpen their focus so that they can achieve much more of what´s really important to them.

A central part of this work is shadow work, which means looking at how bad experiences early in your career hold the key to lifting your confidence and take your business to the next level.  This is powerful and transformational work which helps you grow your business while at the same time being true to yourself, your core beliefs and your most important values”.

Coach

Chloe Williams-Wynne

I believe that everyone deserves to live a full life – the goal isn’t to smooth out life’s wrinkles, rather to change the way that we relate to life’s inevitable challenges so that they don’t overwhelm us and keep us rooted to the spot.

Having had a varied career in different industries and roles, the common denominator has always been personal development and fulfilment. My most rewarding roles have been where transformation has occurred in others as a result of my work, and it is this passion and commitment that lead me to what feels like an inevitable role as a coach.

My innate curiosity in people, what motivates and inhibits them, and her desire to see them develop and flourish lies at the heart of why and how she coaches.  We all deserve to live life fully, to experience all that it has to bring, and I believe that coaching can help make this kind of personal development possible.    

In addition to being a committed coach, I love my dog (all dogs in fact!), spending time in the outdoors, mountains, foraging, cooking and as much travel as I can.
