Leadership Advisor and Business Coach
I am an experienced advisor on people and their work, helping organisations address strategy, culture, leadership and board effectiveness, succession, talent acquisition, development and teams.
Clients come by word of mouth from a wide range of businesses as well as family, philanthropic and social enterprises. Often they are at pivotal points in their evolution and want a safe - but not insipid - place to reflect, receive feedback and be pushed to think more deeply. These are honest, enjoyable, often powerful, incisive, goal-oriented conversations on topics that concern people - such as significant new roles, conflicts, succession, transition, handling change, identifying a sense of purpose, retirement, balancing demands, building teams.
After graduating from UWC Atlantic College and Cambridge, I worked for many years in two US investment banks (Goldman Sachs, Salomon Brothers), leaving to be the project director of a major national arts project in my native Wales (The Wales Millennium Centre) before moving into talent acquisition with two global executive search firms (Whitehead Mann, The Rose Partnership) and eventually building and running my own firm (RAH Partners) for nearly two decades. I later trained to bring these experiences together in leadership advisory and coaching.

I’d want her as a wise and trusted advisor.”

I appreciated being able to talk about strategic questions, and some of the upcoming challenges.
Being able to articulate these and receive feedback was immensely helpful. I’ve learned a lot and really enjoyed myself, plus there are measurable results.
