CLIENT STORIES

CFO, FINANCIAL SERVICES

“Enhance (the management development programme designed and delivered by Caroline at Vivid Future) has now become an integral part of an individual’s Personal Development Plan. It is highly valued by both by the participants who unanimously feel that is has helped them progress personally and better able to manage themselves, both inside and outside work. From the businesses perspective, it means that we develop stronger managers as a result and this directly benefits the efficiency and cohesion within the business.”

VP - Global HR, SPTS technologies

"Caroline recently ran a leadership programme on site for us. We were extremely impressed with Caroline’s coaching style, supportive facilitation and professionalism throughout. She was able to effectively manage a large group of mixed nationalities exceptionally well and was able to adapt the content as required throughout the programme to suit the delegates’ needs. All the planned learning outcomes (and more!) were achieved and we received excellent feedback from all delegates. I would highly recommend Caroline as a leadership facilitator and coach."

 

Financial controller, British Gas residential service

"Caroline ran a brilliant session for the British Gas Finance team on resilience and coping with change.  The techniques she suggested were simple but thought-provoking and equally applicable to both home and work.  Caroline delivered the session in an engaging way with real enthusiasm which inspired the team to think more positively about the topic."

PARTNER, EMPLOYMENT LAW PRACTICE

"Caroline is such a force for good, I cannot recommend her highly enough. I sought some coaching because whilst the professional side of life was going great, there were times when I struggled with the personal - and in particular, juggling the two. Caroline’s insightful, calm approach helped me to identify the key issue that I needed to work on and gave me the tools I needed to do just that. Although I am a work in progress still, I feel like a different (and much better) person than this time 12 months ago, thanks to the work Caroline and I have done together. The impact this has had not just for me but for my family (and by extension, for my career) has been profound. Thank you!

DIRECTOR, CHARTERED PSYCHOLOGIST

"Caroline coached me through my Executive MBA and I found my time with her invaluable. She had an intuitive ability to pick up on how I was feeling through verbal and non-verbal cues, reflecting it back to me. She tailored each session to what I wanted to get from it which meant I always left feeling both supported and energised to deal with my current issue. Caroline is calming and reassuring whilst also being challenging when necessary. I would highly recommend her as an executive coach."

 

NUTRITION SPECIALIST, BEST SELLING AUTHOR

"For the past year I have been a client of Caroline's. This has been an interesting time in my own business. This year has seen the publication of three of my books in quick succession. Caroline has been my coach throughout this period. Having her support throughout this process has been invaluable. Not only have I been guided to achieving some personal goals but also securing the direction of my business going forward. Utilising the platform that being a bestselling author could potentially provide was important to me at the beginning of this process and I believe we have more than achieved the goals we set out at the start. Thank you Caroline!

Head of Editorial & Production, Publishing

"Caroline is a great coach. The rewards are obvious, and I’ll miss our sessions, having learned so much. I find her easy to engage with and very attentive; she is great at facilitating thoughts and guiding towards resolutions, drawing on really tangible and varied resources to match level of engagement. She is direct and honest in a constructive and gentle way, and gives a huge amount to her role. Thank you, Caroline!"

 

regulatory DIRECTOR, PHARMACEUTICALS

"I contacted Caroline when I came to a crossroads in my career....Seeing things from an objective point of view brought in a different perspective in for me. Caroline’s guidance has inspired and empowered me to make clear career choices. Caroline is professional, trustworthy and friendly in her approach to coaching. I would highly recommend Caroline to all."

 

SALES DIRECTOR, FINANCIAL SERVICES

"I have worked with Caroline for over a year now and can thoroughly recommend her. Her down to earth but considered approach to coaching and training combined with real world commercial business experience is most effective."

 

HEAD OF OPERATIONS, PHARMACEUTICALS

"I worked with Caroline as I was going through a pathway choice stage in my career and I can honestly say it really helped to prioritised what it was that I wanted and importantly what didn't want in my future roles with self reflection as to why that was important to me. Helping to clear my lens put me in great shape to make a good choice and take on the challenges of the next chapter of my career. 
I can wholeheartedly recommend Caroline's professional yet friendly approach to bringing structure to thinking and balance to decision making on something so important as career choices."

 

AIRLINE PILOT, VIRGIN ATLANTIC

"Working with Caroline has been an empowering experience.  She is a pleasure to work with as she is the consummate professional, plus she has a real knack for gently guiding you to:

1) find your own solutions and;

2) make the most of your resources to move concepts from dreams to reality." 

 

MANAGING DIRECTOR ARLINGTON CHASE

"I found the sessions to be incredibly useful and they have definitely helped me to form a more targeted approach to achieving the career and life goals that I want to reach over the short, medium and long term. Caroline has an excellent approach - very attentive, engaging...

I would not hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends or colleagues."

 

Freelance Web Designer

"When I first met Caroline I was convinced I needed to retrain, and I wanted her help to decide what training I needed.  I soon realised that my IT skills are useful and that setting up my own small business was a real option. Caroline helped me to set achievable goals (with deadlines!) She also helped me to stop putting up barriers when I didn’t need to.  My sessions with Caroline have been incredibly useful for me."
