Helping leaders build a strong team culture with high-performing productive teams so you achieve your business goals

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

I have been deeply immersed in the charity sector since 2002 when I got actively involved with NCT as a passionate campaigner and volunteer. I have been working with charities as a freelance coach, consultant and facilitator since 2005. Currently I sit on the board of trustees for NCT, one of the UK’s leading membership charities.

I specialise in helping business leaders transform their teams into high-performing collaborative teams who are motivated and inspired to be innovative and creative so you achieve your business goals.

Services include team performance coaching, team development, team leadership coaching, team away days, action learning sets, agile delivery, leadership coaching, and team workshops.

I have worked with a range of law firms, technology companies and charities including Age UK, Citizens Advice, DAZN, Deloitte, Foot Anstey, Keytree, LionHeart, Macmillan Cancer Support, Macfarlanes and NCT.

Get in touch if you want to transform your team culture so that you see more engagement, more collaboration, more creativity and more productivity across your whole business which means that your employees will deliver your strategic objectives.

WHAT ORGANISATIONS SAY ABOUT ME


“Sherry had such a massive impact during her time working at Macmillan Cancer Support. There are so many ways Sherry drove forwards our work in the Talent team, but I would say her biggest success was being the expertise and passion behind the ‘Taskforces’ for our ‘Open Strategy’ process. It’s not an over statement to say that I don’t think we would have achieved what we did without Sherry. A passionate advocate for agile working, Sherry created and maintained our ‘agile pirates’ space for like-minded and curious colleagues to share their learning and experience. Her creativity shines through in all she does. Any organisation would be lucky to benefit from Sherry’s experience and expertise. I hope I get to work with her again in the future.”
Claire Singlehurst, Talent Director, Macmillan Cancer Support

“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

“Sherry is passionately curious, a skill that has enabled her to step further into Agile practices and coaching that she had before. Her work leading the taskforce coaches, managing the relationship with our external Agile coaching partner and ultimately setting us up for success to coach taskforces without the need for external partners.”

Mel Boucher, People Development Manager, Macmillan Cancer Support

“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

“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 brings knowledge, enthusiasm, energy and creativity to any space she is in. She recently delivered a session for our leadership team which brought out things in the group that we’ve not seen in more than a year together. If anyone is looking for a coach who can sky rocket team performance, help you to think and work differently and be all round brilliant, Sherry should be your first choice”

Gemma Ellison, Leadership Development Manager, Macmillan Cancer Support

“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

“I have been working with Sherry for a year or so – she has been absolutely instrumental in supporting me to move back to perm and then to my Director level role. I am grateful that my organisation recognises we need to balance up gender in senior roles but there is a long way to go. Working with Sherry gave me the space to innovate, to express thoughts and share ideas before putting them into action! Everyone needs a Sherry in their life! Thank-you.”

Claire Reeves, Director, Deloitte

“I’ve worked on various projects with Sherry over the last year or so and have been really impressed by her understanding, and commitment, to awareness of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the workplace. Sherry has really invested time to understand more about EDI. She recognises the importance of ensuring every taskforce she works with a) brings their own lived experiences to create inclusive solutions and b) is representative of the communities the organisation supports.”

Lucy Pinkstone, Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Siemens UK
