A bit about Jacqui Purdy
My career has taught me a great deal about the pressures and challenges that are faced by businesses and the people who strive to make them successful. As a consequence, I can bring insight and empathy – as well as realism and rigour – to the coaching relationship.
With 20+ years’ experience in the advertising industry, I have worked with clients in sectors ranging from technology to financial services to higher education, and with start-up businesses through to established global brands.
I ran the international divisions at Upward Brown Media and Total Media, before becoming Operations Director at Total Media (the UK’s largest independent media agency). In this role I worked with the Leadership Team on the strategic repositioning of the business, and oversaw the internal change management that this demanded.
I was fortunate at that point in my career to receive some excellent executive coaching, and this was the catalyst for a change in career direction and my decision to become a professional coach.
The impact of seeing the tangible, positive change that coaching made to people’s performance, both as individuals and as a team, fired my desire to help others fulfil their potential and realise their ambitions.
