The connection between Coaching and Truffles is far from obvious; yet training as a Coach and later a Mentor for Noble Manhattan led me to Spain and growing ‘Black Gold’ – Perigord Truffles.

In the early dawn of Coaching, Noble Manhattan was emerging as a real force for good, with Gerard, Gail and the team trailblazing and spreading the word of Coaching into the UK and Europe.  Choosing Noble Manhattan was one of the best decisions of my life and aside from the obvious benefits of qualifying, working through the training and pro bono coaching enabled me to discover so much about my values and life goals.

A regular working class gal, my working life had been blessed with gifted mentors particularly in sales and small business management and growth and this foundation was to become very important in time.

In session with clients how often do they act as mirrors to us? – empowering us to review our ambitions and motivation and this personal journey set the path for me to move to Spain with my coaching toolbox and telemarketing skills.
