Andrew Gange, Talent and Development Senior Manager, Allen & Overy

Anstey is an excellent coach who brings a great mix of professionalism, experience and warmth to all her assignments.

Anne Segall, Director, HR, Development & Training

Anstey has a real gift for helping you to bring simplicity and clarity to your messages. With her help I was able to come to a real understanding of what I wanted to say and how I wanted to present myself.

Julie Rice, Partner, BDO LLP

At a time when all too many consultants and coaches resort to ever more esoteric theories and models presented using incomprehensible jargon, it is refreshing to work with someone who is straight talking and who offers practical but effective guidance to assist people to reach their objectives. Anstey's enthusiasm is infectious and before you know it you already half way towards your goal.

Andy Cottle, Partner, Forensic Services BDO LLP

Anstey was an invaluable source of advice and support to me during the Partnership process. Her coaching style is built upon a strong foundation of understanding of the individual’s needs and aspirations. She provided constructive challenge, which was vital in the development of my critical thinking about what I wanted to get out of the process and beyond. She brought huge passion and enthusiasm to each session. I would thoroughly recommend Anstey to anyone looking for practical and hands on support as they move through their professional careers.

Fiona Condron, Audit Partner, BDO LLP

Anstey is incredibly incisive. She has a real ability to get behind your initial statement and make you think about what is important and the key messages you want to get across. I cannot recommend Anstey's work highly enough. She will be a huge help to anybody preparing for an interview, pitch or presentation and many other scenarios.

Ed Goodworth, Partner, BDO LLP

Anstey assisted me through the challenging partnership process at BDO. When we first met she asked a number of pertinent questions with a view to bringing “me” into the application forms in place of the usual corporate talk. In addition, she helped me draw upon my strengths and beliefs and concentrate on them. This was truly valuable as it can be tempting to give the “safe answer” to a question that you do not necessarily believe in rather than giving a more honest answer with conviction.

The skills that you learn during such coaching are not limited to one specific cause but are much more life skills that I will find valuable in my role for years to come. Anstey, thank you very much for your hard work!

Richard Montague, Tax Partner, Global Private Client Services BDO LLP

I have found Anstey's support and insights invaluable in meeting my development needs.

Andrew Park, Director, BDO LLP

Anstey tailors her coaching and courses to suit your specific needs and provides insightful feedback and support. She has a massive amount of diverse experience, which makes any session you have with her invaluable!
