KIM WORKS WITH
Mid Career Creative Professional
Lives & works in Manchester
I have been working as a coach with cultural and public sector leaders since 2019. My practice includes Executive and Leadership Coaching, Coaching through change and transition, and Coaching for local authorities.
My background is in the cultural sector, where I had a successful 25-year career in marketing and audience development, with 13 years as a senior leader. I held senior leadership roles at Manchester Art Gallery, the Science Museum Group and Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (MIMA). I went through my own career and life transition when I retrained as a coach with the prestigious ILM7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring.
I run my own signature programme, called Brilliant Transitions, helping clients navigate professional and personal change and transition (a six session programme aimed at cultural and creative clients).
On request, I also create and run group or team workshops, on subjects including Building confidence in times of change and transition, Influencing Positive Change and Creative coaching workshops/retreats for team building, planning or self-development.
“I help clients move from a place where they may feel stuck, confused, unhappy or helpless to feeling clearer, happier, more confident, more authentic and more able to make decisions, move forward and fulfil their potential.”
KIM’S 3 TIPS FOR CREATIVES
LEARN TO LOVE THE BUSINESS
Learn to love the business side of things as well as the creative. One can’t thrive without the other.
TAKE YOUR TIME
This is a journey, not a destination, involving lots of cycles of change. Create a vision and hold on to your sense of purpose, but also learn to be agile and flexible.
With support from coaches / mentors and your peers, you will be stronger, more successful, and able to support others too!
