why I created the Courageous Leaders Club

Having been a successful leader for 20 years in the creative industry, I decided to follow my passion to help other leaders become their best selves. 

Through my coaching I have helped leaders achieve promotions beyond their ambitions, led a company to achieve an additional £1 million in revenue & helped organisations to elevate confidence and certainty in teams by resetting their culture and positively impacting the organisation.

But, I was having too many conversations where leaders felt alone and unsupported at their level, so I decided to create an environment to solve this. The club exists to reach as many leaders as possible to no longer feel lonely at the top and courageously activate their full potential.

how often are you…

Stuck in the day-to-day and frustrated you are not there for your team and leading how you want to?

Overthinking and feeling alone in decision making and how to overcome all the new challenges leaders are facing?

Feeling under supported with training and leadership tools to help different team situations?

Comparing yourself to others and experiencing imposter syndrome?

Wondering ‘how to get the best from your team, especially as they are burning out?’


Having a safe space where you can ask questions, gain access to real conversations and get the immediate support you need

Accessing new leadership training every month to create a positive impact for you and your team

Feeling confident, backing yourself and knowing you can handle whatever comes your way

Building relationships with other leaders from creative companies and gaining an external perspective on what is happening in the industry

Feeling motivated and fulfilled as you can feel your contribution and growth expanding more than you ever thought possible

the club

think of it as a gym for building leadership skills

Understanding who you are as a leader and growing into your full potential is a continuous journey. Not an overnight fix. It takes work to keep building on the tools and strategies you’ve learned. It’s often too easy to fall back into bad habits. That’s where we can help. The Courageous Leaders Club is the space where positive influence, increased confidence, certainty and conviction are a constant source of inspiration.

With monthly high-level training covering the latest topics and full time access to a supportive community – you’ll be well on your way to becoming the best version of yourself and becoming the leader your team deserves.

If you’re passionate about being the best version of yourself and becoming the leader your team deserves, then this is the club for you.
