Andrew Bussey
Director, Smithers Purslow

We adopted the ROM Executive Mentoring and Coaching service initially for myself when I was Group CEO, but then widened it to the senior management team shortly afterwards. All the team found it to be massively beneficial and we would recommend it to any forward-thinking organisation. The programme was an invaluable support in development of the Group, particularly the senior team. The sessions were stimulating, dynamic and supportive and really tailored around us.

Caroline's expertise is absolutely market leading and her insight to personal drivers etc and their application to the business is bordering on the supernormal. Her support extends to issues that can crop up between sessions, providing immediate resource and support. It is always strategic, informed, powerful and consistent.

Our organisation flourished during and since the mentoring and coaching contract and we still share thoughts and ideas even now. We really feel ROM is a part of our team and we look to them as a priority for guidance and support for our business."

Jon Whiteley
Consultant & Non-exec Director ProAktive
We commissioned Caroline to launch our new Mindfulness for Leaders programmes and they have been very successful. This is largely down to Caroline’s warm, engaging style, coupled with her background in organisational growth and development. She was one of the first people to be accredited in the UK for ‘mindfulness in a workplace setting’ and this shines through.
Kristy Rowlett FCIPD
Talent L & D Manager, Wesleyan Assurance Society
I chose to work with Caroline because she has a wealth of experience in business so she understood the challenges I was facing and because she has an accredited qualification in mindfulness and has specific experience of using mindfulness in business... I could see an impact straight away and I was so impressed with the benefits, I asked Caroline to run a session with my whole team and it's sparked good conversations with each other and our clients.

Caroline has provided our Water Brands Group with expert business support. She has helped our company to fully understand the pressures existing within the current climate and has worked proactively with myself to facilitate and encourage the best from both the management team and colleagues. Caroline has demonstrated intuition and tenacity towards helping achieve our goals, which was both inspirational to me personally and also fundamental in determining the strategic direction of the business to promote growth.

Caroline worked closely with Ault's to devise and implement a succession plan. My own sessions with her were invaluable providing a really good sounding board. Caroline provides a safe and inspiring environment, an opportunity to think, and the confidence to move my ideas for the business to action.

This course has made a genuine difference in my performance at work. It has provided tools and techniques that allow a fresh approach to situations at work.

I’ve learned how to stay focused and centred when emotive subjects are being discussed. If keeping your head when others are losing theirs is a skill that leaders should practice, then this course provides a platform to achieve this.

It has helped me to focus better at work and in times of stress/pressure. I have learned how to be more aware of what is going on both in my own body/mind, and to use simple techniques to re-set.
