About Me

About me

Professional, Qualified & Experienced.

I am a Qualified Executive Coach, Qualified Trainer, member of the Institute of Leadership and Management and International Coaching Federation.  Having worked within the recruitment industry for many years, I recognise and understand the challenges faced in an industry that is target driven, fast paced and financially rewarding and which can also be demanding, challenging, competitive and dependent on economic markets.

My career started out as a Recruitment Consultant, and after 25 good years accumulating recruiting experience by working with the Recruitment Industry, I have a good understanding of the how the talent that connects talent works.   My own career path including working with Local and International organisations enabled me to develop my career path to Director level.  I have held full P&L responsibility up to $130 Million working in local and international markets in Ireland, the UK and North America. My sector experience includes Accountancy, Finance, IT, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Oil & Gas, Mining, Infrastructure, Engineering and Construction across Contract, Permanent and Executive recruitment.

I am experienced in change management and transition, diversifying business and generating new revenue streams. I am passionate about enabling personal development in others and founded Ancora to offer Learning, Development and Coaching to businesses and organisations.

If you want to make it happen for you and for the team you are leading – take the next step and contact me.
