Hey there, I’m Victoria Walsh.
I’m an ICF certified executive coach and career transformation expert.
I help professionals reshape their career and performance so that they keep on loving and excelling in work which fulfils, energises and maximises potential.
I’m passionate about helping those who are stuck, disillusioned and restless in their careers. I work with clients to sharpen skills, find clarity and confidence to create change or push through the internal and external blocks which are stopping true career happiness and satisfaction.
In a nutshell, I support others to keep on loving and excelling in their career as they and their life evolves. 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 because you have the strategies and skills to excel. 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 and effective skills, in a career with purpose and passion, helping grow businesses and get results which catapult everyone to the next level.
After a successful 20 years in the world of strategic marketing, team and business leadership, I discovered myself hungry for change and growth but unable to steer myself out of the box I found myself in. I had reached big career goals and had all the perks of the successful career I had only dreamt of as a newbie graduate in the 90s, but here I was treading water, feeling bored, drained and unable to find any joy in going to work anymore. As many do, I was compromising and accepting a slowdown in learning and a lack of interest in the daily tasks as part of the course. Then one day it hit me – if this is what we do for a big chunk of our day and lives, then compromising on happiness, interest, energy and our ability to shine every day was nuts! I reached out for professional support. Stopped going around in circles with my thinking and worked out what was wrong, holding me back and learned new ways to lead myself effectively to what was now a clearer and updated vision of success.
Over the past 4 years since recognising a passion and strength in nurturing talent and performance, I’ve worked with 100s of professionals to help maximise their potential to achieve more of what they love. To shape new careers, find confidence, develop as leaders, improve performance skills and work smarter not harder.
Time is precious, it is not renewable and so what if I could help you keep on loving and excelling in your career, to believe in choices and yourself more, how would that make you feel and what would it help you confidently achieve?

I’m an ICF Associate Certified Coach, a Practitioner 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.
As well as working in my own coaching business I also work as a consultant and teach at Kingston University undergraduate business students.

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.
