from Charlotte Factor Employer Engagement Manager at City of London on 06 Mar 2014
Over the last few years, Dawn has been consistently supportive of the local recruitment programme which I run at the City of London Corporation. She has taken time to give very helpful advice, guidance and feedback to the applicants who went through the recruitment process.
She has always excelled at the coaching and guidance element and this is therefore an obvious choice in terms of developing her own business incorporating these elements. I was one of her first 'guinea pigs' and was lucky to receive her wisdom and guidance for some of the career obstacles I was encountering.
Dawn takes time to understand your issues and will then carefully put together viable steps to achieve your goals. She won't let you get away with not addressing these issues but will calmly, carefully and conscientiously deliver a tailored and excellent programme.
I wish her the very best of luck with her new endeavour. I know she will be a real success!

“I recently found out I was successful at an interview and was now required to go through an assessment day. I was dreading it and at that point contacted Dawn who was instrumental in both getting me through the assessment day.
Specifically she helped me to work out how I could prepare for the assessment and what the priority areas were. We worked through different scenarios that might occur and that helped build my confidence. In addition she made me aware of important aspects of the assessment that I hadn't considered. Essentially Dawn enabled me to focus on what was important in terms of my preparation; this was invaluable.
If you have an interview or an assessment day coming up I would highly recommend that you contact Dawn.”

“You brought a lot of energy to the session and got me to be really specific with my goals, I really enjoyed working with you as I felt at ease talking to you and I wasn’t worried about sounding silly.”
from Danny, Peterborough. on 14 Jan 2014
“A very relaxed and open session in which I felt totally at ease. Time passed by far too quickly.”
from MRC, London. on 06 Jan 2014
“Dawn was very clear and explained the process of what we would cover very well. She gave very good examples to clarify my understanding and took me through step-by-step ensuring I understood everything. It was a very inspiring session. Dawn has very good questioning skills; leaves you feeling very encouraged and that you are able to achieve.
Everything was covered brilliantly and I was certainly inspired to go for my goals and change my life in the areas I chose. Thanks!”
from Anjelic Kumedzina, Coca-Cola Enterprises on 05 Jan 2014
“I have worked with Dawn for nearly five years and during this time I have known her to be a great business partner.
I know that Dawn was held in incredibly high regard in her time at Mizuho as her expertise and input was always requested, even in situations where existing strong relationships were in place with the business, a testament to how well respected she was. Dawn is collaborative, light hearted and well informed. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Dawn, was genuinely sad when she was no longer deemed a “client” and very much look forward to the opportunity of working with her again.”
from PB, Essex on 03 Jan 2014
“Dawn has a very pleasant personality and is easy to talk to. She made the experience very enjoyable.”
from J Potter, Health Service Manager on 29 Dec 2013
“I was very clear from the outset what I wanted from a Life and Career coach. I was doing exceptionally well at work but I lacked confidence and assertiveness in high level meetings. This was notably holding me back and it was at that point I decided I needed some support. I read Dawn’s profile online and decided to contact her and I am so glad that I did!
The sessions were challenging, exploratory within a highly positive atmosphere. I enjoyed the challenges each session brought, which enabled me to use techniques and simple application methods of communication within my work place. I was also able to break free from negative thoughts and beliefs which were holding me back. I had held onto some of these negative beliefs for many years. Through a lot of hard work and effort Dawn revealed to me new ways at looking at things, ways of breaking negativity in my thought processes and beliefs, all of which were becoming barriers for my personal growth and development.”
from Ann Dorset on 15 Dec 2013
“Dawn used excellent questions which helped to stimulate my thoughts; this enabled me to find goal setting easier and enjoyable. Dawn was also very encouraging as a coach and this increased my feelings of belief that I could reach my goals.”
from Nick Kebbell, NDK Consulting on 13 Dec 2013
“In my 20 years in the recruitment industry, I have had one of the most enjoyable business working relationships with Dawn, she has a great sense of humour and has that willingness to go the extra mile coupled with her professional attitude has made all my dealings with her extremely pleasurable.
Dawn would always go out her way to make sure I had accurate and detailed job descriptions before I conducted a search and as a result would make the search process that much easier and was always very supportive throughout the recruitment process.
I have recruited for many banks and I can safely say Dawn is an expert and highly experienced in conducting competency and behavioural based interviews across all job functions and as a result this has given Dawn a very successful reputation for hiring the right person. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone.”

“Dawn has the type of manner that made her easy to talk to whilst demonstrating a strong professional side that would not let a client get away with short changing themselves.”
