International Executive Coach

Background Summary 

Angela’ background includes over 20 years as an international business coach, facilitator and trainer with global Fortune 500 firms, reaching the position of Global Executive Coach, a position she still holds at Intel. Her corporate experience has spanned across UK, Pan-Asian and Global Media markets. For 15 years, Angela worked for the News International in London (publishers of The Times, The Sunday Times, etc.); five of these years were spent running the international advertisement group where her duties included coaching and training a worldwide network of representatives. She then joined Dow Jones in Singapore as the Advertisement Director, to spearhead the re-launch of the Far Eastern Economic Review. For nearly 10 years, Angela resided and worked in Beijing, China, running her own business as an executive coach, focusing on effective business communication and cross-cultural training. While there, she was selected by Intel to be one of their Global Executive Coaches. Now back in the UK, Angela’s work is split between executive coaching of individuals and teams, across a broad spectrum of businesses (UK, Ireland, Europe and Asia) and acting as coach/mentor/supervisor for trainee coaches. Her wide-ranging international experience in the media sector, cultural diversity and team development makes her an incredible resource to senior executives who wish to increase their impact and effectiveness in the global business environment, especially those, with a particular focus on China and the Far East.


Coaching and Leadership Expertise

Angela’s main area of interest has always been international executive coaching of individuals and teams. She has worked extensively with multi-cultural teams across a range of development challenges. Team training and facilitation projects included clients such as Intel, Mercedes, BA, Novo Nordisk, Bayer, Siemens, (owned by The New York Times), Boston Consulting Group, European Union, Nokia and Coco-Cola to name a few. In 2011, after a rigorous trial, Angela was approved as a senior executive coach for the elite Goodstone Group, an executive coaching firm dedicated to developing business leaders based in the US.

Angela has a Masters in Coaching and Mentoring Practice from Oxford Brookes University and is currently completing the Certificate in Supervision with The OCM (UK). She is a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and the International Coaching Federation (ICF). She is also accredited to administer the Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator (Steps I and II), FIRO-B, Belbin Team Roles, Systemic Team Coaching and the Rosinski Cultural Orientation Framework.


Is she the Executive Leadership Coach for you?

If you are looking for a highly qualified, international coach who trained hundreds of elite executive leaders and teams across all the industries, who provides a unique look at your culture, teams and potential through her wealth of international experience on impact and effectiveness in the global business environment, Angela is the right person for you! Her particular focus on China and the Far East makes her a great asset in cultural integration, especially since she speaks a little bit of Mandarin, and her track record of coaching Asian and European VPs is phenomenal! Angela loves travelling and is happy to undertake engagements in Ireland, UK, Europe and Asia, as required.


Client Testimonial:

“The training that Angela gave my Chinese employees was very helpful on day to day work, we are now more efficient. My employees appreciated her ability to give live examples and have prepared the course to suit the airline industries needs so they could apply what they learnt straight away. Angela is very professional coach and understands how to adapt the material to the audience she is addressing.”   Sara Janine Thorley, General Sales Manager China, British Airways
