One-to-one Business Coaching

Improving confidence in business communications
Judy helped me with presenting in group and one-on-one scenarios, building my confidence in communications. Any confidence building process will be tough, but Judy's coaching style is enthusiastic and inspiring. With clear strategies, I now feel more equipped for my professional development and ready to move on to the next stage of my career. On top of all of this, Judy and I had a brilliantly fun time! Career and personal development requires a proactive approach, and I couldn't recommend Judy more highly.

Coaching with Judy has helped enormously with my team and project management skills. She is very knowledgeable and professional but also makes the process fun and enjoyable. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who requires to improve managerial disciplines.
Anthony Pope, Lead TB Farm Advisor/ Project Manager, South West TB Farm Advisory Service

Career Planning
Her unique contribution is in her coaching ability. She is able to quickly drill down to understand the needs of the individual and then put together a development solution to that person's needs. She has also demonstrated this flexibility when delivering a group workshop and able to adjust the programme in real time to meet the needs of the group rather than sticking to a rigid programme.
Teresa Frost, Head of Talent Management, Siemens plc (whilst in post)

Helping witth start-up issues for a new project team
Judy was introduced to me via a professional colleague, coming highly recommended.The result, successful solutions for our business, and new tools for me professionally and personally. I have thoroughly enjoyed the process. Judy was trustworthy, insightful, exciting, fun and has worked miracles!

Improving public speaking
I found that Judy was able to put me at my ease rapidly and, through a combination of explanation of techniques, exercises and confidence building to equip me not only to be much more confident in handling such occasions but, to my surprise, to look forward to them.

Thinking positively and improving confidence
My coaching with Judy taught me a great deal about myself and the way I think about my career. I am more self aware and now embrace the challenges that my job entails rather than letting them frustrate me. Judy's approach and enthusiasm was excellent and I found her incredibly easy to work with. I will always be very grateful to Judy for the help she gave me and would certainly recommend her to anyone.
Kirsty Hart, Executive PA Thomas Miller Ltd

Helping to create a strategy and business plan for business
I met Judy Salmon at a time in my life when I had taken on a hugely challenging new role in a rapidly changing and highly regulated environment. I knew I needed to have a much more disciplined, planned and strategic approach to my work. Very quickly, Judy enabled me to create a personalised statement of intent and more importantly, helped me to devise a strategy to meet the requirements of my personal statement of intent.
         She enabled me to step out of my business and look back into my business to see it more rationally and clarify what was required. I would say that Judy's style of being open, honest, able to quickly understand the demands of my role, challenging, empathic mixed with a good sense of humour have helped my coaching sessions to be enjoyable and extremely successful.
         I would strongly recommend Judy.

Bespoke training programmes

Judy provided an excellent thought provoking a interactive seminar to our Senior Associates and Associates on the intricacies of networking and the art of ensuring that you make the most of attending events. The afternoon was very well structured. Judy's presentation style was entertaining and informative and at the end of it levels of confidence in ability to perform in otherwise daunting situations were increased.
Stephen Rosser, Chief Executive, Clarke Willmott LLP

Judy helped us design and then deliver a programme which allowed individuals to have greater understanding of the technical, financial and interpersonal elements of their role. Taking an entire team through a 3 stage programme was a considerable commitment on the part of the business. It was gratifying therefore, to receive unsolicited feedback from our members that they could see the difference. It is not often with development that you see an immediate return on the investment and on this occasion we did. Due in no small part to the work and enthusiasm of Judy.
Jay Anderson, Group HR Director, Thomas Miller

Judy Salmon has provided a number of courses over the past few years for the Arup Bristol office, and recently ran a one day course in Personal Effectiveness for engineers from a range of disciplines. The group found the course to be very useful and the interactive nature of the course was excellent. Judy delivered it with a good balance of enthusiasm, professionalism and fun. We would have no hesitation in recommending Judy.
Janet Lascelles, Senior Engineer, Ove Arup & Partners Ltd

The coaching and training solutions that Judy offers, which include a range of techniques and models, can be tailored to the needs of the organisation and the individual.
Angela Gamblin, Chief Ops Officer Through Transport and Mutuals, Thomas Miller

What I particularly like about Judy is that she is lively, direct and very approachable - she oozes confidence which has a knock-on effect to those around her. I would recommend Judy because she gave me the confidence and direction to succeed in my role. Her particular qualities are that she instantly detects your weaknesses and helps you overcome them, The benefits of working with Judy and attending her course have been life changing, I have not looked back and certainly do not worry about preparing for meetings.
Claire Hudson, Business Development Manager, BLP Insurance

Before working with Judy our networking and approach to building client relationships was fairly basic and ad hoc. As a result I didn't feel we had much focus when it came to expanding our professional network. Judy's course gave us simple straightforward tips and techniques to maximize on our opportunities and immediately we felt more confident and prepared for networking events. Our approach to networking and maintaining business contacts is now far more structured. Our ideas about how to build business relationships have been expanded considerably and the overall outcomes are very positive. The training from Judy has been first rate and I highly recommend it. What I particularly like about Judy is that she is so passionate to help others improve and build their confidence, and her personal approach really put us all at ease.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Judy to you.
Director of HR, Allen & Overy LLP

Judy facilitated some Business Networking training with a number of our managers - this is the first time we have organised training in this area and our managers found the programme to be enlightening. They thought Judy was entertaining which helps make the training more memorable and felt that she responded to their points constructively.
Training and Development Manager, Tate and Lyle Sugars

Judy is professional, an excellent coach and trainer. She takes time to understand the needs of the business and the individuals she works with, is able to establish relationships with a wide range of people, from graduates through to senior executives. Judy's flexibility in her approach is very much appreciated. Before running a programme she will understand how rigid a programme needs to be or whether there is scope to make changes real time in order to meet the group needs. She always checks in advance to ensure she fully understands the parameters she will be operating in.
         Judy is passionate about her work, takes time to build relationships and delivers results. I have no hesitation in recommending Judy Salmon to you.
