Our aim is to work with local businesss using our flair, imagination and considerable experience to assist them to develop, expand and grow.

Having worked together for over ten years in senior management roles in international education, Andrea and Julia decided to put their creative and business skills to use in working alongside like minded people - people who are experts in their field but may need additional coaching and creative support to further enhance their business and develop their skills.

We would love to work with you!
