So where did the idea of becoming an Exam Coach appear from? Well, in 2006 I undertook a secondment to Grant Thornton's National Training Centre outside London and that is where my love of coaching and helping others grew. With Grant Thornton I regularly delivered training courses to other trainees and was always a speaker at client events. As Financial Controller I was responsible for substantial finance teams, therefore mentoring my staff was a daily occurrence.
I have been fortunate enough to lecture and tutor in both Queens University Belfast, University of Ulster and the private sector in the past. However through my experiences I developed my own method of coaching my clients (rather than lecturing) to enable them to achieve fantastic exam results!
Initially my coaching was performed on an ad hoc basis, until I decided to grow and develop my own business which to date has been a hugely exciting and rewarding journey. So by loving what I do, I hope that I not only enable students to achieve exceptional results in their accounting exams, but inspire others to pursue a career in something they are passionate about!
