About Me

Baby to Boardroom was born in early 2018 with the intention to support working parents with their transition back to work.


It's important to understand that a range of emotions can be experienced and whilst 22%* of parents are excited to return to work, most others are less so. Baby to Boardroom isn't just for those who may be wobbling about returning to work - it's to share those great success stories too.


I welcomed my son into the world in October 2016. He was lovingly conceived with a little extra help through ICSI (IVF) and has completely turned my world upside down. 


I was fortunate enough to take a full year 'off' and spent this time learning how to become a parent (this learning never stops!) and having a new identity as a 'mum'.


When I did return to work I felt ready, but I lacked confidence, was afraid to leave my son and needed to rebuild the person I was before. She was still in there...somewhere.


I received great support from my workplace, although others aren't quite as lucky. I developed a survey and sent it to every parent I knew, posted it on LinkedIn and sent it to local nurseries. The results offered a clear indication that more can be done to support others. Here's where I step in!


What do I know?


Firstly, I am a working parent myself. I understand the juggling needed and the daily range of emotions.


Secondly (and possibly more importantly) I am an executive coach (ILM Level 7), An NLP and Strengthscope practitioner and have over 10 years in the learning and development industry.


In addition to this I hold accredited management and HR qualifications.


I may not have all of the answers but I can certainly offer support and guide you in the right direction.


What's next?


Baby to Boardroom is my new baby - we're learning how to work together and form a close relationship. It will evolve, develop and grow as the months pass.


Your suggestions and ideas are always welcome and I look forward to supporting as many of you as I can.


Thanks for reading and please contact me with any questions!
