"Cherie displays a great level of emotional intelligence."

“Using a people-focused approach, Cherie displays a great level of emotional intelligence, and she is highly skilled when it comes to spotting opportunities for people to move upwards into managerial positions. From an early stage of working together, Cherie advised there were key people in the business capable of delivering, and once these employees were identified, they would need guiding and coaching into their new roles. One of Cherie’s main unique selling points is her strong ability to not get dragged into the mechanics and working patterns of an organisation.”

"The best bit is the regular one to one with Cherie, always an inspiration!”

“Being a member of the Concannon Connection Business Community has helped in so many ways. Running your own small business can be isolating at times, the club puts you in touch with others in the same situation. If I am struggling with a problem, chances are someone else in the club has encountered the same thing and solved it. There is also a great sense of satisfaction knowing I can help the others out too, it’s give and take. And the best bit is the regular one to one with Cherie, always an inspiration!”

“I have been using Cherie’s services for the last few months and am proud to be part of her Concannon Connection Business Community.

"I feel that I can see the positives more clearly. In short, work is now more fun!"

“When we first met I was heavily involved in all aspects of managing Advance Tapes at a very detailed level, I had little or no time for any strategic thinking. My co-Director was in a similar position. The work I have done with Cherie has brought in expertise and allowed me to focus on taking the business forward, a role that I am really enjoying. Cherie now works with all members of the senior team in both one to one sessions and quarterly group meetings which is helping the new Board to become increasingly effective.”

She gives a reality check to your strategic thinking, expectations and cash flow and holds you to account to do what you say you’ll do. Not all coaches do that – and it really works!”
