About me  

I’m Angharad Ross, a Henley Business School trained Executive Coach and an experienced business leader who for 15 years worked with some of the world’s biggest brands.

I live in Caversham, Berkshire, with my Husband and Golden Retriever.

I’m outdoorsy so can often be found open water swimming, hiking up mountains, running around a field with my dog and training for triathlons.

I’m also a qualified Gym Instructor, for fun, and each week I teach women over 30 to lift weights.

Don’t worry, I also like beer, lie-ins and cooking for friends and family. Also, chocolate!

     My story

I’ve always worked my socks off. I enjoy it.

I was told that success was getting good results at school, going to a good university, getting more good results, securing a grad job then working my way up a big famous organisation.

I’d be paid well, get a nice car and of course meet a lovely, equally successful person to marry and have lots of children with. That’s what the results of hard work and success looked like.

I did all of those things (except a dog instead of a child!) then woke up one day and wondered why. I was bored, over-worked and had a few minor stress-related health conditions that I kept brushing off.

I took a year off to travel and have the career version of an ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ experience. I defined my values for the first time in my life and worked on what I thought success really means to me. Spoiler: it’s not what I was told.

Now I just do all the bits I used to love about my old job: coaching, motivating, developing, training and supporting DE&I. I feel more myself which means I’m better able to work to help others. I also have more time and headspace to do the things that make me completely fulfilled.

If you’re feeling unsupported, unable to get the help you need or just want to dial up your development to the next level, get in touch to see how I can help.

It could be the start of something amazing.
