“Against a back drop of change at an astonishing rate, and an intellectually rich environment, the selection of credible external executive coaches was of paramount importance to me. A M C Consulting, and Ann Marie Cooper in particular, has enabled my organisation to face head on these challenges and address sometimes deep seated issues which were getting in the way of business success.
The professional relationship that has been built up between the coach and those being coached has considerably assisted us in achieving our business objectives as a company.”
Director of Human Resources, International Professional Services Group
“Ann Marie's consultative and flexible approach has been valuable in the design and delivery of our management coaching programme. Her willingness to spend time understanding our business and culture, and tailor the development approach to meet our specific needs, has been appreciated and has paid dividends. We've seen participants have some 'light bulb' moments on the programme, which have led to real changes in behaviour back in the workplace.”
Learning & Development Manager, International Property Company
“Ann Marie's background in recruitment and talent development coupled with her highly attuned coaching skills are hugely influential in ensuring the success of any assignment in which she is involved.
However, it is her calm professionalism and efficiency, attention to detail and engaging, collaborative and warm personality that stand out in her work in the sectors in which she is involved. A consummate professional, I would have no hesitation in recommending Ann Marie for her coaching and consultancy work.”

Marketing Director in Professional Services Organisation
“I sought out Ann Marie's coaching during a period of personal reflection on my future career development options given some changing life situations. During my interactions with Ann Marie I found that she had an excellent ability to make me conscious of some of the assumptions (limiting and otherwise) that I had made in thinking through my situation. She also helped crystallise my thinking on moving forward and was a useful check on progress as I began making the change in my life circumstance - includes moving on from my current company with whom I had developed a successful track record over the last 12 years. I found her empathetic, willing to give positive challenge and non-judgemental in her style which made me feel comfortable and ultimately more open to fully exploring career issues within the context of my wider life ambitions. She is flexible in her technique - her method included using examples and illustrations that were relevant to my personal interest which I believe enhanced the effectiveness of our interaction.”

There’s never any time to assess where you are going in your life, but coaching gave me the opportunity to do so. With the help of a very supportive and understanding coach I’ve been able to set my goals and start the process to achieve them”
