Career Development Coaching (*names changed for confidentiality)

Adrian helped me to produce the best possible CV and covering letter not only to ‘sell myself’ but also to give an honest flavour of who I am and get across what my requirements were in a new role.

He took a generous amount of time and great care to find out all the details of my current situation, previous work and future wishes to produce a really personal CV presented in a very effective way.

However, possibly the most valuable and unexpected outcome of Adrian’s service was that I gained considerable confidence in myself and what I had to offer, and therefore went into the job application and interview process feeling much more positively. Thank you Adrian. Highly recommended.

Personal Coaching (*names changed for confidentiality)

Adrian enabled me to answer many of the questions I had, challenging my thinking such that I refined my objectives.

Adrian employs a deceptively successful strategy, utilising an innocent and open countenance to gain empathy, before delivering a question that spits out of the dust and into the wicket keeper’s hands before you have chance to appreciate its subtlety.

Andrew* – 2019

Adrian helped me realise my true ambitions and to eliminate ambiguity in my thoughts. He helped me formulate a plan to work towards a goal using techniques to allow better focus, fewer distractions and clarity in maintaining my vision.

He helped me understand how to make adjustments to my previous, more rigid plan and to exercise flexibility whilst maintaining the fundamentals of the end vision. I would highly recommend Adrian as a coach to anyone looking for guidance in their personal or career goals.

Louisa* – 2019

I’ve gone from feeling utterly overwhelmed, frustrated and stressed to being empowered and in control. Even my sleeping patterns have been restored. Adrian’s techniques helped me stop the mental ‘spin cycle’ I was in and objectify and prioritise my business plan.

The value of having such an experienced hand to help me unearth and apply my own ability cannot be overstated. I now view coaching as a necessary business expense. Thank you so much.

Luca Bussolati, Pet Business Unit Director, March 2016

Veterinary Coaching

I have sought Adrians assistance twice when applying for a new role and a promotion. I had struggled to pinpoint and convey what my transferable skills were as a vet. A problem I think many in our profession have. After in depth telephone conversations, Adrian was able to enthusiastically spot all of my competencies based on my past experiences. Most of which I hadn’t previously appreciated. He then explained how to put these onto paper, so that it directly showed the employer what I had to offer. Having someone that could illustrate my non clinical skills was essential for me. I am so grateful as my revamped CV got me the job I had been after for two of years. Plus, my current manager now uses that CV as an example.

Siobhan* Applying for a Civil Service Role, Jan 2020

The service Adrian provided was highly professional. By reading my ‘fluffy’ competencies he encouraged me to rethink my language structure with the inclusion of examples and results. I have now realised that I have many more transferable skills than I was initially aware of and would be much more confident to discuss examples of each at interview.

I would highly recommend Adrian to anybody who is struggling to get started or who wants to ensure that their CV stands up to competition against candidates outside of our profession.

Adrian’s vast commercial experience along with his friendly, non-judgemental manner make him an ideal provider within our profession.

Vet applying for industry role, 2018

On applying for a non-clinical role, I struggled to re-write my CV using a skills-based approach. Adrian’s feedback was professional and very thorough, helping reframe my skills with evidence to back them up. His manner was non-judgemental, and suggestions were combined with asking questions that made me think about what exactly the employers would be looking for and how I could make my CV stand out. Regardless of what happens now I have found this a really useful experience and would recommend to anyone in a similar position.
