"If you do not know where you are going, every road will get you nowhere."

 - Henry A. Kissinger

"Julia has been instrumental in helping me to tackle some really challenging areas associated with confidence at work; something that I’ve been grappling with for a long time. Working with Julia, I’ve experienced a change in the way I able to find my confidence and so manage my career more effectively.

 

Julia has helped me think about things in a new light, and coupled with tools and techniques she has shared have made a daily difference to me both personally and professionally. I can’t emphasis enough what a difference coaching with Julia has made; highly recommended!"

"Julia has a wonderful way of ordering my jumbled thoughts in a way that feels like they are valid and important. She is a great listener and also is a big picture thinker which is helpful to bring perspective to our conversations.

I have found it most helpful to have her experience and wisdom to bounce ideas off and she has always made me feel very heard and supported.  It has been a hugely beneficial experience to be mentored by Julia."

"This was our first experience of seeking the support of an external coach and mentor and so we were naturally cautious in opening up our organisation to a third party and being honest about the challenges arising from a newly formed management team. Julia very quickly understood our needs and established a high degree of trust. This enabled a very open dialogue throughout the process.

 

I have seen my colleague grow in confidence in all areas of our work and grow into a respected and established member of our management team. We’ve been delighted to work with Julia and found the whole process to be enjoyable and beneficial."

"I feel like I’ve gained something from Julia that I would never have got from books or online resources: Connection. My conversations with Julia allow me to focus on the basic fundamentals such as looking after myself and building resilience. Each time with a focus on how I can develop my creativity and extend my skill base so I am constantly learning. Because of Julia’s mentorship I feel better equipped to reach new areas of growth in my career, my personal projects and my relationships. Thank you Julia."

"It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Julia over the last year. Julia listens to me with absolute attention, asks me prompting and thought provoking questions which then helps open the doors for me to think differently, clear my mind and take actions. Julia has always shared really valuable material to help me navigate through the topics of our discussion and further reading, for example Julia shared with me some great resources on imposter syndrome, leadership style and managing teams.

Her constructive feedback and coaching style has benefitted me to grow throughout this process. She is such a warm, wonderful and encouraging mentor and coach and I always look forward to speaking with her for all my sessions. I am glad that I met her and would not hesitate to recommend Julia to my friends and colleagues network."

"Julia coached me through a very challenging period in my professional life.  At a point when having been placed at risk of redundancy following a couple of difficult years at work, my self-confidence as a leader was at a fairly low ebb.

Using a range of techniques and interventions Julia encouraged to me reflect on my qualities, experience and capabilities, re-building my self-belief to the extent that I was accepted onto my company's next generation leadership programme.

 

I still fall back on the tools Julia provided me with when the going gets tough and recognise the work we did together as a turning point in my career.

 

Julia is a kind, caring professional leaving her clients with a new sense of purpose and clarity. I can’t thank Julia enough for the changes she encouraged me to put in place that have made such a difference to me."

​"30% Club Mentoring Programme - I had a fantastic experience and an excellent mentor, Julia Phippard, who contributed widely to my professional and personal development, through valuable challenges and insights that enhanced my role as the leader of my company.

 

She´s amazing and extremely competent. My goal is now to share what I learned with all my team."

"Julia came at a point in time when I was at a crossroads with my career, I was feeling stuck with which direction I should I take. Added with the self-doubt in whether I had the confidence in making a change after years of hitting barriers with my career development.

Julia was great in understanding where I was and gave me the space to really explore what is was that I wanted to for myself.

The time I had with Julia enabled me to work on building my confidence and in my ability. Using a wide range of tools and techniques I was able to identify my development steps needed in my progression, with me also being able to secure a career move.

It was a pleasure working with Julia and I’m still able to see the benefits from our time together in the choices I’m making for myself and also in my career development and plan."

 

AL, Swindon

My mentoring journey with Julia started when I was looking for professional growth but was unsure about exactly which direction to take.

Julia has a fantastic bank of knowledge and helped me with tools and techniques to overcome indecision and self-doubt.  Another positive aspect of the mentoring was that I began to realise the importance of a holistic approach, in other words to consider my personal growth alongside career goals.

By the end of my mentoring journey, not only did I successfully obtain a senior role within my field but I also achieved some personal goals that were important to me.

I’ve really enjoyed working with Julia and would recommend her without hesitation.

 

LS, Bradford

I am incredibly grateful for the coaching I had from Julia.  Her guidance, reassurance, unwavering support and strategic approach have empowered me to overcome some challenges, set meaningful goals and achieve personal growth.  Julia possesses a natural ability for listening, asking thought provoking questions and helped me implement practical strategies.  Working with Julia has been a game changer and a journey I have very much enjoyed.
