Hi, I’m Victoria Walsh.
As a career transformation expert, I coach individuals and teams to manage and strategise their career and performance so that they keep on loving and excelling in their careers.
Whether you are seeking to sharpen skills, create change and or advance in your career I’ll help you quickly get unstuck, find focus and motivation, and realise your potential to achieve more of what you truly want and get more out of yourself.
At the heart of my coaching sits the desire for everyone to love and thrive in their jobs as they grow so that they every day feels like a best day. Perhaps that’s a day with more energy, freedom, balance, joy and confidence. Maybe, a day where you create better relationships or inspire, lead and support others more effectively. Feasibly it’s a day where you are feeling a significant stretch and challenge. Or a day which means you are performing your role with ease, in a career with purpose and passion. Plus, helping grow businesses and get results which catapult everyone to the next level.
Throughout my career (I spent 20 years in marketing and leadership roles before coaching) two subjects have always sparked my passion and curiosity, those are beliefs and behaviour. I love to understand and get under the skin of what motivates or stops us. It’s this curiosity which underpins my approach as a coach. It’s these two things which when attended to can create the transformations and growth required to improve situation, self and performance.
Transformation and growth don’t happen overnight but through working with me it happens quickly and more effectively than going it alone. My programmes and workshops are designed to help clients beat confusion, self-doubt and overwhelm so that they can take confident action and move forward. Together we shine a light on the belief system and behaviours which can limit or empower change and improvements. I help challenge and revitalise thinking, performance and relationships so that clients can confidently create transitions and transformations to achieve more of what they want and eliminate what they don’t want. I empower clients, whether working one to one or in group workshops, to learn effective self-leadership – mindset, beliefs and strategies – so they have the tools to overcome hurdles, frustration and overwhelm which get in the way of effective growth and transformation.
Stuck, stressed, confused, restless, underperforming and dissatisfied are words which have no place in our vocabulary at work or in life. Yet my personal experience of staying stuck when I had outgrown a career I once loved, and over the years seeing blame cultures and environments where team and leadership growth was stunted through lack of attention, I know too well how easily these thoughts and behaviours can manifest.
Time is precious, it is not renewable and so what if I could help you make every day a best day? Let’s chat to see how I can help that thought become a possibility for you, your leaders or your teams.
I’m an ICF Associate Certified Coach, a Practioner Graduate of the Academy of Executive Coaching, a certified belief change practitioner, a certified Everything DiSC behavioural change profiler and a 5 Behaviours of Cohesive Team profiler. I graduated from Kingston Business School, Kingston University in 1996 and bring a back story of 20 plus years of commercial experience in the marketing industry working as a senior leader in agencies, and for brands such as Nokia and Sony Pictures, before transitioning to coaching.
My career has been extensive and my experience of roles in leadership, operations, project management and client service means I’m no stranger to working with different people and challenges. Plus, I have the wisdom of my own career transformation, managing businesses and teams often through change and transition, mid-life rambling and the challenges of changing priorities as an ambitious professional and working mum of two.

My coaching experience with Victoria has been extremely beneficial, targeting an improvement in commercial thinking within my current role. She ran the sessions with a combination of planned structure and flexibility to challenge my thinking and encourage the development of new skills. I would highly recommend her as a coach!
Victoria is a professional, authentic and an incredibly insightful coach. After just one coaching session together she managed to unpick what was holding me back on my job search and also to face the fears that I had created along the way. She also brought empathy to the session and a wealth of experience of the corporate world which she has spent a long time working in. I love her honesty and pragmatic approach.
