And maybe, putting yourself voluntarily in front of a camera doesn’t feel comfortable; we’ve all been subjected to the overzealous amateur with the brand new toy – ‘That’s it, smile, not like that, like you mean it!’. Geez. Emotionally scaring. I get that.

What stings is that all the while you hesitate in getting these shots done, you’re invisible. A decent set of images will skyrocket your confidence and, subsequently, your brand visibility.

QUALITY & CONSISTENCY

You need great photographs – period. All of the Social Media channels require an avatar shot of some kind and your website absolutely needs them. You are the face and story behind your personal brand.

But you’re reluctant to use the shots you currently have as they are a hotchpotch of selfies mixed in with those stiff  ‘professional’ headshots you had done a few years back- which frankly you never did love.

Your brand needs a strong and professional visual consistency in order for people to take you and your mission seriously – when we can see you, we trust you and when we trust you, we move closer to discover more.

And when it comes to compelling content that will really hook your audience, your personal life journey is the most captivating story you can tell, and one that you can keep sourcing compelling content from. 

But telling your story might well feel vulnerable and difficult to pull together with any real clarity – where to start? What to leave out? You’re just too close to it.

I was walking a well trodden path

I grew up in Nottingham in a loving family, with Mum, Dad and a younger brotherI was always quite independent growing up, preferring to code away on my computer or retreat somewhere with a book. It was in these years that I discovered my logical-systems thinking brain, my thirst for learning. I was always yearning for more.

Life has been very kind to me. I did well at university and in work, proving to myself that I could be successful in whatever I turned my attention to. But looking back it feels like I was walking a well trodden path by making the same decisions as everyone else. I never stopped to think or question them. 

THIS EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN AMAZING. I UNDERSTAND THE POWER OF MY STORY.

I can help.

As an experienced personal brand coach and photographer, I work with visionary leaders to realise their unique strengths, craft a brilliant brand and share their story with the world.

I believe that when conscious leaders tell their story they realise their vision. I want to help you do this and get on the map.

In my 13 years as a coach, I have helped:

  • Coaches overcome doubt and confusion, by telling their story, finding their voice and owning their niche.
  • I’ve helped Founders identify their strengths and position their personal brand to act as a beacon and imbue trust.
  • Entrepreneurs gain real traction and move from confusion and overwhelm to clarity and credibility.

Here's how I work.

I support visionary leaders in the following ways:

  • 1-1 Personal Brand Coaching
  • Story Portrait
  • Field Day – Personal Micro retreat

Find inspiration and connect with visionary leaders doing incredible things in the world.

You’ve likely signed up for expensive courses and workshops in the hope that you’ll get the clarity you seek. But you found them generic and impersonal; you have specific challenges relating to your situation that couldn’t be answered by watching videos or in a room full of people. So you leave feeling flat after having spent a lot of money.

You’ve maybe replicated others in a similar field who you saw were successfully marketing themselves and growing their following. Trying to emulate them feels awkward and inauthentic, and it falls flat. In your heart, you know that it has to come from your own voice, but how do you access that?

Because you were desperate to get unstuck and make some headway with your business, you waded through a sea of Life Coaches and hired one, but their approach wasn’t a great fit, it felt supportive in some ways, but they couldn’t act as a soundboard for your ideas, they didn’t bring mentoring or expertise to the mix.

The nagging inner critic may well be a constant companion: ‘You should give up on this nonsense, you’re confused, you’ll never make this a stable business – people don’t get it!’

You read the latest books, listen to podcasts, trawl YouTube for answers, there’s a ton of great advice, but it just adds to the confusion, and you realise that in fact, there is no magic bullet out there.

Work with me

The most challenging thing for any leader is to know with clarity, the vision and motivation for leading change. Partner with me to help you establish your vision and how you can build a personal brand that brings it to life.

Is Confusion Keeping You From Truly Diving into your Venture?

As somebody who feels excited at the prospect of doing their own thing and being their own boss, it can be a challenge to unravel all of your amazing ideas and find clarity.

You know that you want to bring real value to the world, build an audience, change lives, delight and inspire, you have passion and ambition, but where to point your energy?

You feel confused and frustrated by the many brilliant and innovative ideas swirling around your head – none of them wrong, but which one to pick and focus your effort on?

When friends ask ‘how is the new venture?’ you feel defensive, you struggle to bottom-line, feeling as if you have to justify your direction.

Overthinking leads to sleepless nights, you know that now more than ever is the perfect time to get clear on your vision, to create and launch something that fills you with a sense of purpose and achievement, while bringing real value to your customers.

But this added time urgency doesn’t help, the pressure to define and commit leads to avoidance, procrastination, and if you’re honest, fear.

Clarity of Purpose and a Personal Brand that Works Just as Hard as You

As a professional coach and mentor, I will help you understand your motivations and integrate them into core beliefs. Overcoming inner critics and refining exactly what it is you are here to lead means the confidence to get visible and the courage to share your vision. 

I get the importance of leading positive change and will coach you to identify your natural strengths, tone of voice, value proposition and talents and we’ll build them into the foundations of a brilliant personal brand. 

We work on your leadership vision and hone in on what truly matters to you, this is key. Then we assess the effectiveness of your current personal brand and create a winning strategy that gets to work for you.

We’ll spend time getting to know your target audience or ‘tribe’ and a host of other factors, you’ll feel confident sharing and being seen from the get-go.

The result? Courage and clarity to be the leader and pioneer your really are and a tribe who adore what it is that you do.
