Since setting up The Good Coaching Company in 2008, my mission has been to give business leaders. senior management teams and heads of department essential best practice business & leadership tools to help them navigate the best course in times of rapid growth and also in times of challenge. In my work as a business strategy consultant, leadership coach, trainer and facilitator within a wide range of business sectors and in various sized & shaped organisations, I see a common thread running through them all: The need for a clear and aligned business vision, supported by a management team with the competence, confidence and commitment to deliver that vision effectively.
I work with ambitious and award-winning organisations and businesses in variety of sectors and also am involved with organisations promoting entrepreneurialism and leadership in the UK (The New Entrepreneurs Foundation, Common Purpose). I am an accredited coaching provider for the CPD Standards Office, a member of the Association for Coaching and was a vetted and approved Business Development & Innovation Coach, and also Leadership & Management Training Provider for Growth Accelerator between 2012 and 2015. In 2014, I was shortlisted and nominated for the “Outstanding Growth Coach of the Year” Award at The Brave & The Bold Business Awards.
With my extensive media background (I enjoyed a successful 17 year media career as a Radio and TV executive and then in the digital space working with brands to develop engaging online content), supported by a broad range of specialist professional accredited training, I bring this combined knowledge and experience to provide a high standard of business support to ambitious leaders and their teams.

A FEW CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
“Ask most business leaders what their biggest challenge is and I bet most will say something related to people. I worked regularly with Juliette for 6 years building Language Connect into one of the UK’s biggest translation companies. Juliette helped me to turn the challenges of people management and leadership into opportunities to create a harmonious, sustainable culture in the business that we could all be proud of. I can honestly say working with Juliette was one of the three best decisions at Language Connect I made and would recommend anyone in a similar position to get Juliette onto your team.”
Ben Taylor, M.D, Language Connect
“Juliette has been a key part of our company’s success. With a deep understanding of each member of the leadership team, and the dynamics of the business, her coaching has enabled professional growth, collaboration and change management across the organisation. From a marketing communications perspective, Juliette supported multiple branding and internal communications projects with great success. Her warmth and patience is perfectly balanced with razor sharp focus and commercial understanding and I very much hope to work with Juliette again in the future.”
Gunilla Huddleston, Global Marketing Director
“What can I say about Juliette other than Wow!!! The impact she has had on our company and me personally is nothing short of remarkable. Juliette has worked on our Management team, run DISC profiling sessions at our Company Conference, helped me develop my own tool kit as a Company Director and given us the ability to develop a strategy that we have implemented to grow the company. The results speak for themselves, we’ve had our best year ever as a company and its because of Juliette’s input, help, guidance and all-round brilliance. She has given us the tools to be even more successful. You can’t put a price on that.”
Andy Thorne, Company Director – Outstanding Branding
“I challenged Juliette to provide a bespoke training course for my team and she exceeded my expectations. Her research and preparation was thorough and the end result was extremely effective. She has a great presentation style, informal but maintaining control of a large group. She is very knowledgeable about the subject matter and has a wealth of experience which adds to her credibility. My team greatly enjoyed the training, have embraced their new skills and are using these in their daily lives and language.”
Anne-Marie Reading – Manager of Client Services, Niu Solutions
“I have worked with Juliette on numerous occasions and have always been extremely impressed with her knowledge and commitment to all aspects of coaching and development. Her ability to break down issues into easy to manage portions and her consistent and reliable approach makes her one of the best coaches that we have used in our work in leadership development.”
David O’Connor – Course Director, Common Purpose
“The role of Managing Director was new both for me and my company. I wished to be as effective as I could be in the role and therefore I turned to Juliette for coaching on tools, techniques, behaviours and mind-set, to enable me to have confidence from the beginning and to develop a leadership style that my Board colleagues, senior management and employees, would recognise, respect and respond to. Juliette’s coaching has been invaluable in this respect, helping me to be myself and play to my strengths, stretching me, and encouraging me to appreciate better my achievements.”
Jeremy Owen, Managing Director, LUC
“I am writing to thank you for the services you continue to provide to my firm. Bargate Murray are an award-winning international law firm who expect those who provide services to us to meet the highest standards. You have most certainly done so. You have worked with members of my firm to maximise their potential and effectiveness with great results. In doing so you have helped to ensure that my firm can and will continue to meet the exacting standards of quality and client care that have become our hallmarks. I would not hesitate to recommend your work to anyone looking for business or management coaching services and look forward to continuing our work with you”
Quentin Bargate, Bargate Murray Law
“Juliette is my Windolene! Working with her helps to clear the smudges from my window on the world and give me much greater clarity on how I can achieve my goals. Juliette strikes the perfect balance of pure coaching and mentoring, empowering me to seek my own solutions and actions but also having the experience and knowledge to make suggestions, share tools, concepts and methodologies. I can honestly say I do not think I would have achieved half of what I have in the past 12 months if I had not been working with Juliette during this time.”
David Brett – Global Sales Director, Language Connect
“Juliette was asked to help our Board team to improve our business leadership and management style. The coaching Juliette gave us has had a really positive impact on the effectiveness on how we now do business. We understand each other a lot better, and have greater awareness of how we need to communicate and approach others to get the best possible result. We make time to communicate, share ideas and support each other. Through honest and frank discussions, we have a shared common purpose that we are all signed up to, and this has to be a really powerful tool in taking our business forward.”
Jennette Emery-Wallis, LUC Director Landscape Architecture
“The programme allowed us (The Board of Directors) time to work together as a team and focus on the fundamentals of the practice – who are we? What do we want to be? What makes us different? This was a hugely rewarding process and has subsequently allowed us to truly define the ‘personality’ of the Practice which, in turn, has provided a very clear reference point for everyone in the company. Juliette was a particularly strong coach and used our sessions to encourage us to look in detail at how we operate as individuals and as a Board. Although Juliette has a very personable approach, she really held us to account which meant we had to deliver, rather than just talk about, our platform for growth. I feel we’re a stronger, more united Board as a consequence of Juliette’s coaching and I’m sure the company has already benefited from it.”
Steve Jackson-Matthews, Head of Ecology – LUC
“Juliette is a superb business coach. She has helped me with my confidence, assertiveness, awareness of how to handle business partnerships – and ultimately my sales, which have shot up by 50% during the second half of our coaching programme. Juliette has a real depth of experience, and a great set of tools to really help you move your business forward. I was sceptical at first about how Juliette could help me, but over the course of six sessions I have radically improved my confidence, reached clarity over my goals, am much improved in managing strategic business relationships and found a renewed hunger to drive my business forward. I would recommend Juliette to anyone.”
Bryan Edery, Bryan Edery Music Ltd
“I just wanted to thank you for your assistance recently. My attitude to coaching has always been mixed, but you constantly challenge my thinking, and have introduced me to many ideas that make sense and are appropriate for my business. Your style is perfect for me, and I like the way you follow up on actions and summarise what we have covered. Your ability to pull out a relevant piece of paper from that bag of yours that just seems to be written for Made Simple Group never ceases to astound me. Now you are also working with one of my team and the initial feedback has been similarly positive. So, I suppose to sum up, I would say, ‘Does what it says on the tin!’”
Howard Graham, CEO, Made Simple Group
“The Good Coaching Company helped me to escape from fire fighting by building a stronger team that then doubled our turnover and profit in one year. All of this removed much of the pressure and stress of growing a now successful business”
Auro Foxcroft, Founder, Village Underground
“Having initially worked with Juliette on the Growth Accelerator Business Coaching Programme, it was really obvious to me that I had to keep her involved in the business for another year. Over two years, Juliette has advised, helped, mentored and coached me through a pivotal time for our business. She’s given me guidance and tools that I have used to the business one step closer to what I know it can be. As a result of working with Juliette, we are no longer working hard to keep up with the corporate world, Instead we have become one of the most respected technical service providers, relied upon and trusted by our increasing number of large corporate clients, and as a result this has given us a much better opportunity to shine”.
Kieron Garlic, M.D – Present Communications Ltd
“The consistent setting of min-targets and action points was extremely useful to keep me on track and helped with motivation. This all led to a dedicated focus and, more importantly, saw an increase in business. Juliette has a no-nonsense approach and can get to the heart of a problem very quickly and offer a range of solutions. Excellent business insight and very practical in drawing out potential paths to follow. Overall, an amazing coach.”
Simon Newsham, Newshams Tax Advisors
“Juliette has helped me focus on key business objectives, her relaxed and focused approach has enabled me to pin point key areas to develop that deliver real change for the better and she has been fundamental to how I have moved my practice forward. I have no hesitation to recommend Juliette to those that want to see a real and measurable difference in their business and give you an edge that others will notice.”
Cuoghi DipPFS, St James Place Wealth Management
“Juliette has worked with many senior people at McCann London and has been exceptional at helping personal development, focus on teamwork and delivery against objectives. We would recommend her to help create a high-performance culture.”
Chris Macdonald, CEO McCann London
“Just a quick email to thank you for all the work that you did with me with regards to formulating our values and our 3 year plan. I am really pleased to say that as a result of the work that you did, we won the ‘Dealer Excellence of the Year 2017’ from our industry body, the BOSS Federation. There were 400 people at the Awards ceremony last night so it was a real honour to be recognised in front of our peers and some large national names such as Lyreco. You may also be aware that we won our Dealer Group, Integra’s ‘Member of the Year’ a couple of months ago and Regional Family Business of the Year from the FSB earlier in the year. Thank you so much for your kind help and support in helping us achieve this success.”
