Partnering with technology companies to develop and retain their female talent

A former Global Head of IT Service in a major City law firm with over 25 years of leadership experience, I set up my independent coaching and consultancy practice in 2012.

I now specialise in helping technology and cybersecurity companies to attract, develop and retain their top female talent so that they close the gender pay gap.

Get in touch if you want to build a more inclusive and diverse team, strengthen your female talent pipeline and develop your female talent so that you increase retention, reduce attrition and become a more attractive employer prospect which means that you close the gender pay gap.

WHAT ORGANISATIONS SAY ABOUT ME


“Sherry brought clarity, camaraderie, calm and great skill to our tech transformation. With a real ability to engage very different groups of stakeholders, Sherry was a fundamental pivot for the whole programme winning everyone’s respect.”

Nick Wilkie, Chief Executive, NCT

“My staff have found their work with Sherry of enormous value and it has proved extremely helpful in the overall management of the team.

Sherry’s expert coaching skills bring out the best in staff by assisting them to elicit their own needs and then working with them to develop real-life plans to improve performance.”

Maurice Millen, Head of IT, Macfarlanes

“Sherry comes with a deep level of expert knowledge and I found her easy to work with as did my staff. She helped further the strength of our facility through her review and we expect to use her skills again shortly.”

Duncan Eadie, Chief Technology Officer, Foot Anstey

“Sherry has a natural ability to work with people at all levels to bring them together and make them feel they are being brought on an amazing journey, rather than simply being a part of a project. Sherry naturally leads by example … she helps, guides and supports others with an almost effortless enthusiasm. … all of our teams and stakeholders were fully engaged throughout and their needs and requirements met with sincerity and positivity.”

Gary Dawson, Programme Delivery Manager, NCT

“Sherry came to talk to our Women@Keytree group. The whole group enjoyed her engaging presentation on Career Aspirations and Imposter Syndrome. There was much lively discussion generated facilitated by Sherry’s highly approachable and warm personal style. Thank you!”

Rebecca Bennett, Head of HR, Keytree

“Being coached by Sherry was an enriching experience and really helped me grow. Her structured questioning promoted focus on specific issues allied to exploration of a wide range of potential solutions. Sherry created focus in each session so I developed a concrete action list. I’d recommend Sherry’s coaching style and approach to anyone who wants to maximise benefit from coaching.”

Fay Simcock, Senior Product Owner, TomTom
