Facilitator and Coach
Samantha is a professional actor, writer, highly experienced facilitator and executive coach with over 10 years’ experience in delivering courses which specialise in behavioural change. Employing a practical approach (based on the actor’s expertise in physicality, voice and language) she enables professionals from a wide range of sectors to develop in such areas as influencing skills, diversity, managing conflict, building rapport, interview skills, effective questioning, managing poor performance, presentation skills and delivering feedback.
She specialises in leadership and interpersonal communication, with specific focus on identifying and achieving feasible outcomes that can be realistically executed in a corporate environment. She uses a hybrid of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural and somatic thinking underpinned by the humorous, supportive atmosphere she brings to her work.
Working as a stand-up comedian in an often brutally honest world, Samantha has learned the importance of presence, authenticity, simplicity and creative story-telling; skills that can be honed and used within a business environment.
Samantha has worked with an extensive range of clients across public and private sectors in both the UK and Internationally; clients include City of London Girls’ School (Leadership Programme), Airbus, KPMG, Debenhams, Alix Partners, British Humanist Association.
Samantha is also a qualified executive coach with an Advanced Diploma from the Academy of Executive Coaching and a Mental Health First Aider.
