My Clients Say….

“By far the best, most focused, conversation about my career and life that I have had in years. Liz does not let you ramble on self-indulgently, but offers brilliant clear advice. I cannot recommend Liz highly enough.” 

Lejla, Mid career, humanitarian professional, Middle East

“After 10 years in the field, mainly in conflicts, I really thought there was nothing else I could do. Yet I knew I was burnt out and needed a change.  Liz helped me realise that I have so many other options, so many transferable skills and a life to live! I thoroughly recommend her.”
