Hi, I’m Victoria Walsh, Certified Executive / Career Coach and Leadership Consultant passionate about enabling people and teams to optimise their ability to make everyday a best day.
I bring a back story of over 20 years commercial and leadership experience having spent two decades working in the world of marketing agencies before transitioning and setting up my own coaching and consultancy business in 2015. With an enthusiasm for positive psychology in the workplace, my focus is on enabling people to confidently step-up and lead themselves and those around them more effectively in careers they love, untapping their maximum performance potential and within cultures which inspire growth and positive wellbeing.
Working with a toolkit full of occupational and psychological assessments as a qualified, accredited and verified BPS Registered Test User, alongside tried and tested executive and career coaching and training methodology, I work one to one or in groups delivering coaching and training programmes to meet individual and business needs. Furthermore, I provide consultancy services to support businesses with leadership and talent development by developing strategies to improve the effectiveness of people planning, recruitment and development enabling my clients to build an empowered, effective and nurtured work culture.
I am passionate about helping people flourish at work so that people and businesses are in the best position to make every day a best day where they use words like energised, joy, fulfilled and satisfied and they achieve desired business results effectively.
How? Perhaps for you it is;
– about finding more energy, confidence and fulfilment in a job you have ‘crafted’ to give you more of what you want out of your career.
– leading more confidently and effectively by maximising your own strengths and performance potential by managing your own behaviours, thinking and skills more positively
– building capability in others, improving team work, collaboration and selecting the right people to optimise the wider business results
– building stronger relationships and contributing to a work culture which focuses on greater wellbeing, positivity and support
– achieving more whilst coping with the changes you naturally face as you and your team evolve within today’s volatile and uncertain fast paced world, and as you navigate your own life choices.
As well as running my own business I also work at Kingston University as the MBA Executive Coach and as a Business Consultant and Trainer for the undergraduate Business Readiness programme. I’m passionate about learning and personal development and am currently half way through a masters on occupational and business psychology.
I currently live in Teddington West London with my Liverpool mad husband, two children, Izzy the cocker spaniel and Rhett the cat (yes I’m a big gone with the wind fan). I work nationwide with clients and deliver in person or online support

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.
"Knowing what it's like to feel stuck, trapped and dissatisfied in my career empowers me to help others to believe and create the changes they need to maximise their potential for greater success and happiness".- Victoria Walsh
