Licensed Firework coaches

Christine Butenuth

London, UK

My coaching emphasis is targeted to individuals with undergraduate and higher degrees especially in science, engineering, mathematics and medicine who wish to use their undoubted intelligence and experience for "enterprises" that require an acumen and insight they have not had to develop either during their degree or during their career. This can include assisting them to develop their own business based on their personal strengths.

I like to have an open conversation with clients to help them help themselves, giving them the benefit of my experience along the way and encouraging them to think logically as distinct from "romantically" about their aspirations and potential, not forgetting the resources (personal or otherwise) upon which they can draw.

Obi James

London, UK

I coach mid- and senior-level professionals in the corporate sector (predominantly financial services), helping them to position their personal brand, successfully navigate their networks and expand career possibilities.

My coaching approach draws from:

a) Latest findings in the field of neuroscience to create an understanding of how coaching impacts neuroplasticity and helps build the psychological skills needed to support lasting change.

b) Systemic Thinking to help senior professionals, executives and business leaders to look beyond individual development to find solutions which also benefit the wider systems they're part of.

c) My strong corporate experience in senior leadership and organisational development roles within large multinational organisations. This means my coaching approach is tailored to factor in pressures and constraints that come with leadership responsibility in these organisations.

Lisa Russell

Berkshire

Coaching for mid-career women feeling unfulfilled at work.

I'm a warm and friendly coach who loves to bring a sense of playful curiosity to all my coaching sessions.

I specialise in working with people who are unhappy at work. I can help you get unstuck, freed up and moving towards work you can't wait to get out of bed for. I use tools from the Firework programme as part of an action-based programme to help you get clear on what lights you up, what work you want to do, and how you're going to get there. And I can help you bring a sense of play to the journey, so that you can get there faster, and lighter.

Susanne Schwameis

Austria

I work with driven corporate professionals in their late 20s to early 40s who are brilliant at what they do and want to take the next step in their career. Whether this be getting a promotion, improving leadership skills, boosting your work performance, getting a well deserved salary raise or changing career direction completely.

I have spent over 10 years working as an executive in investment banking and leaving the corporate environment to launch my coaching business, which gives me a unique perspective on the challenges professionals are facing within companies today and how to build a thriving career within organizations as well as what it takes to successfully change careers.

Vicky Kennedy

Dubai, UAE

With 15 years experience within international matrix structured organisations and 9 years based out of Dubai, I am passionate about the art, science and psychology that underpins my professional background and I believe that when companies and individuals act in alignment with their unique strengths, passion and purpose they unleash incredible creativity, innovation and potential that produces inspirational leaders and market leading companies. I enjoy supporting executives in achieving their boldest goals both inside and outside of the workplace.

Sinead Howland

St Albans, Hertfordshire

I offer a full career coaching programme for those looking for a career change or looking to return to work after a career break. I am a mum of two young children, hold an MA in Careers and am also a licensed Firework Career Coach.

Gillian McDonagh

Kent, London and the South East

We spend a high proportion of our waking hours at work and I believe that this should be both enjoyable and rewarding. With a focus on excellent performance I work with my clients to identify and apply the best version of themselves, regularly and consistently.

My clients range from graduates looking to be sure of which direction to take, promising talent dissatisfied or frustrated in their current role, returning mothers seeking to build confidence and find work that supports their life as a whole to people who have been in the same employment for over 20 years and are now considering a complete change in direction.

I use the Firework Programme as an opportunity to stop and take stock of who you are, what’s important to you and how you can best reflect this in your work. This may well results in a complete change of direction but it can also lead to simply redesigning a current role – or even looking closely at how you turn up at work and how to get the most from it.

Gemma Rogers

Cheltenham

I support adults through mid-life career change and students reconsidering their direction during or after University.

Wherever you are in life, you want to make a change in your career, but don’t know how or where to start. Perhaps you’re experiencing a lack of confidence and sense of feeling stuck. Having experienced my own sense of unease within my previous career in fashion, I understand that change can feel big and scary! I attribute my big career shift down to my own work through the Firework programme.

I became a licenced Firework Career Change Coach in 2018 and am also a qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and Children's and Young Person's Counsellor. Change often comes with a lot of anxiety and stress and I combine my coaching with more therapeutic work to support you through the challenges you face.

Meg Lyons

London, UK

I love working with people who want to do more purpose-based, meaningful work in the world, who don't want to simply clock in and out of a job for the rest of their careers, and who know they are capable of extraordinary things - if only they could figure out what that is! I also help working parents achieve a more balanced approach in integrating their work with family life.

I have worked with a variety of professionals at all levels in their organizations and with varied goals related to career and purpose, work-life balance, and leadership.  Prior to becoming a coach, I led a remote and global team of Learning Consultants in Financial Services technology.  I excelled at building relationships within my organization, motivating and inspiring my team and colleagues, and articulating and achieving desired changes in culture and collaboration.

Majella Callaghan

Dublin, Ireland

I specialise in coaching women returning to the workplace and career transition.

My coaching style is a confidential, challenging, friendly, supportive, person-centred approach which is non-judgemental, encouraging and produces positive results.
