I was lucky to be assigned Seren as my career coach whilst studying on the BBC’s Leadership Programme in 2004. She provided fantastic support to me during that time. An excellent listener with solid knowledge of management & leadership styles; her insights and guidance helped me to identify my key strengths and the best ways to apply them; as well as how best to focus on the issues and challenges I faced at that time. I would definitely recommend Seren as a coach in leadership, in learning, indeed in life.

I highly recommend Seren and have enjoyed working with her on numerous programmes of work.

It can be a real challenge to find somebody who is able to cut through ‘bizspeak’ and provide stimulating and exciting workshops. Seren has the ability to deliver complex information in a way that allows participation and real understanding of ideas. She is able to quickly and effectively kick start a meeting and keep the momentum going, providing useful tools to creating and maintaining creative and productive teams.

I see Seren as a Coaching guru as her knowledge of coaching is so vast and extensive in real experience, which I have both witnessed as a coachee, witnessed as a peer in the moment, and heard from anyone who has ever been coached by Seren. Seren will always put the coachee first and is superb at being of best use as she strikes a perfect balance of challenge and support. I would recommended Seren not only as a coach to an individual with challenges, a clear goal or a complex issue, but also to a business looking to help educate their coaches or conduct a mass coaching programme. This is because Seren has years of experience at building client relationships and will work very hard to achieve the desired outcome, again I have seen this first hand, an asset to any person or company!

Dan Wallis, Senior Consultant, Lane4 Management group

After working with Seren for over 5 years I have always been impressed by her professionalism, dedication and passion for supporting people in their performance both in and out of work. Seren’s learning mindset has seen her develop her coaching capability and experience. She is always looking for ways of improving and this has real benefit for her coaching clients. Seren manages to balance her psychology background with a pragmatic and creative way of helping people to move forward.

Paul Jewitt-Harris, Consulting Delivery Director, Lane4 management group.

I attended a number of team building exercises run by Seren, I found her to be a very inspirational trainer, with excellent levels of subject knowledge and empathy with all attendees. The content was interesting and challenging, with emphasis on how the team can perform better when working together. I would thoroughly recommend Seren as a trainer for any business that is looking to get the best out of its employees and who are working to establish a team ethos across all functions.”

Tony Sidwell, Director BSIA Health and Safety consultants

Seren and I worked together on a project I led to train and develop leaders to become full time coaches in their organisation – one of the largest Emergency Services in the UK. The assignment involved training, assessment, qualification, supervision and finally, Coach accreditation to EMCC standards.
The leaders where highly experienced in their field with many years’ service under their belt.  Their motivation to become accredited was moderated by a degree of scepticism about the value and impact of coaching on people’s performance.
In group and one to one settings, Seren was able to shift this attitude by relating her deep knowledge of the psychology and practise of coaching to the realities of the everyday work of the audience.  She communicated potentially abstract concepts in a straightforward and direct way and engaged people with humour and energy through her interactive presentation style.  She developed credibility with this sceptical audience through robust challenge and empathic support.
The organisation now has over 100 qualified and accredited coaches to support the learning, development and performance of its management population.

Elaine White, Principal consultant, Lane4 management group.

I had the privilege of working with Seren, both in her capacity as a Principal Consultant and as lead facilitator for the Lane4 internal coaching accreditation programme (ICAP). Her passion for seeing and fuelling potential in others is infectious and her skill and experience as a coach is both evident and inspiring. I have personally learnt so much from her over the past 5 years. From observing her ability to lead and grow many successful L&D client programmes to seeing her unwavering care, consideration and commitment to developing the individuals around her, Seren is a class act!

Jessica Bell, Consultant at Lane4

I have just completed a year-long management training programme at ITV which was largely designed and executed by Seren. Seren’s sessions were the highlight of the month as they adeptly balanced the company’s training requirements with our own specific and general desires for personal development. Always friendly and approachable, Seren generously embraced our sometimes vague requests, delivering an intelligent, engaging and tightly focussed sessions with plenty of follow-up material and support. Seren’s ability to gauge the tone, business aim and appropriate delivery of a training task is second to none and I would not hesitate in recommending her.

Dan Jackson, Producer at the BBC

You could not hope to meet a more caring and professional practitioner than Seren. She has added immense value to Lane4 over the past five years by virtue of the depth and variety of her experience and the intensity of her wish to provide the best service possible to the client. She will consistently go the extra mile for friends, colleagues and customers alike. Seren also listens well, challenges well and couples real subject matter expertise with a deep sincerity. I trust her implicitly.

Austin Swain, Director of Business Development and Co-founder, Lane4 management group.

I have worked with Seren on a number of client projects during her time at Lane4. In that time, I have been very impressed with Seren’s professionalism, attention to detail and design creativity. Seren has high standards and prepares herself and her client team for delivery with thoroughness and care. Some of our best, award winning work has involved Seren in a central role, consulting with the client, designing interventions and delivering with impact. Seren’s own thirst for knowledge and development stands out and I greatly appreciated working with her bringing principles of solutions-focused coaching to our colleagues at Lane4. Always willing to make time for others, Seren was a terrific source of design and delivery ideas with a focus on learning and performance outcomes.

Dominic Mahony, Executive chairman at Lane4 Management group

Seren is my coach supervisor. She provides me with invaluable insights into my coaching interventions, presence and style. She offers unique observations that help to raise my awareness of opportunities that directly elevate my practice and impact. She is experienced and well read on the subject of coaching, and shares her knowledge with abundant generosity. I highly recommend Seren as a coach supervisor.

Jennifer McConnell, Virtual Executive coach, Leadership Development consultant

Fantastic, presenter and facilitator. Seren helped us at Wates Group, scope, design and deliver our award winning “Lead the Change” and “Drive the change” Safety Leadership development programmes, reaching 700 leaders across the business. Instrumental in our drive to Zero Harm and industry leading safety performance. Great to work with and whatever the challenge, approaches it with imagination and vision!

John Dunne, Group Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Director at Wates Group.

Seren delivered three Workshops for CCS Alumni CPD events. These were on ‘Second Order Change’ and ‘Resilience’. All three Workshops were well received. Seren was thoroughly prepared, and knew her subject inside out. She made the complex ideas in Second Order Change accessible to the audience through her considerable experience of performing and training, using a variety of methods, ranging from talking clearly about the topic to experiential exercises. I would have no hesitation in recommending Seren for her acute analytical, listening and delivery skills, her passion for the subject, and her balance of depth and accessibility.
