Celia is a highly experienced and qualified trainer and executive coach with over 20 years’ experience in enabling personal and organisational development.
When training, coaching or facilitating, Celia is positive and enthusiastic and provides a supportive but stimulating environment for learning and personal growth. She particularly loves delivering the Springboard Women’s Development Programme and seeing the real difference it makes to the lives of women, both in their work and personal lives. Her company is called Zest4Development and she is zesty and enthusiastic in all aspects of her life!
I thoroughly enjoy facilitating personal development and self-awareness with both individuals and groups, and have worked extensively with people at all levels in a range of organisations and sectors. Clients include local government, the police, the fire service, the RAF, the education and health sectors, employees from the oil and gas industry and a large Christian organisation.
In addition to designing and delivering bespoke training courses that make a positive difference, I am also a trained psychometric tester, 360° facilitator and experienced action learning set facilitator. My particular areas of interest are women’s development, coaching and leadership development programmes, having been recognised by the National Training Awards for a highly effective local government senior leadership development programme. I believe that strong relationships are essential in successful organisations and partnerships and have worked closely with a range of partners, including Real World Group, the University of Birmingham and West Midlands Councils, in the delivery of organisational, regional programmes and ILM accredited programmes.
I am enthusiastic about my own development as a Chartered Member of the CIPD, Member of the EMCC and Member of the ILM and actively seek opportunities to enhance my skills, knowledge and abilities. I’m also a dedicated fundraiser for Breakthrough, a keen walker with my beautiful chocolate Labrador, who is also a ‘Pets as Therapy’ dog, and love cooking for my electric set of friends.
