Isabel has endless energy for people realising their unique potential, and pursuing the powerful impact they create in the world, when they unleash that focus, flow and drive.
Isabel is a Personal and Executive coach with qualifications including CPCC, Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, and an Organisational Relationship and Systems Coach (both endorsed by the International Coaching Federation, ICF). Isabel specialises in Leadership development, cultural change, and enabling positive team dynamics.
Isabel is an established leader, having been Resident Director for Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures Dance Company. During her successful 22 year career as a professional dancer and choreographer she worked with some of Europe's most innovative directors; performing principal roles in London's West End and on Broadway. Throughout her time as Resident Director she coached and mentored people from all walks of life, as well as performing artists.
Performing made her aware of the power of choice in every moment. She learnt to be highly tuned to herself, and other people enabling her to get to the heart of a situation fast.
In 2007 she joined Connectwell, a people and organisational development company. She has led cultural change and team development work in organisations such as the BBC, AstraZeneca, Action for Children, Royal Borough of Kingston, British Airways, British Gas, Greenpeace, The Royal Commonwealth Society, International Passport Services, Royal Mail and Strategic North.
In 2010 Isabel became a visiting lecturer at Birkbeck University specialising in personal development planning. In 2011 she became an approved coach for the 21st Century Legacy ‘Be the Best you can Be’ programme for primary and secondary schools, a programme to discover students’ unique potential and empower them to pursue and fulfil their dreams. 2011 also saw Isabel complete her Clore Fellowship.
