“Jan is a first-class coach, who I would strongly recommend. I worked with Jan for a year, throughout this time she guided and challenged me to help me find the perfect role, by realigning my ‘compass’. The process has also had a far-reaching effect: my relationships with family and friends have improved significantly and I live life to the full now, truly enjoying what I do at home and at work. I find I am now so relaxed and content that I just enjoy each day not thinking about it as work. Jan is undoubtedly the best coach I have ever worked with over the last 25 years. This is the best investment I have made!” – Senior Manager, FTSE 100
