Beatrice Othol

I’m the Lead Strategy Coach on the Accenture Social Innovation Accelerator.

In my role, I guide Accelerator teams through a 3-12 month process of validating and incubating their social enterprise idea. My role involves mentoring them through problem-solving, prototyping, and launch, as well as navigating roadblocks and connecting them to SMEs.

I’m also an inner growth activist who helps change-makers and companies embrace disruption with creativity and purpose. I bring 8+ years of experience in growth strategy, innovation and brand
strategy working particularly with consumer goods (beauty and wellness), financial services, sustainability and resources, and philanthropy.

To support founders, I can offer a specific strong understanding of Agile Proposition Prototyping & Testing, Creative Ideation, Product and Personal brand visioning.

In terms of my life coaching speciality, I bring a mind-body and transformative coaching approach to help identify and release limiting beliefs; embody confidence and authenticity; and to integrate your life experiences into the work you do.

Sarah Williamson

My coaching is informal and person-centred; it gives you the client the opportunity to focus on whatever you choose to help you move forward in your life and your business.

Together we will have conversations – sometimes tricky, sometimes fulfilling – that enable you to explore your issues and aspirations, your limiting beliefs and goals.

– Discover what is holding you back and how to overcome obstacles.
– Identify your skills, values and areas of focus.
– Set and achieve personal and professional goals, hone your vision.
– Improve your organisational communication, resilience, leadership and confidence.

My background is in the charitable sector and principally as a fundraising consultant, bid writer and strategist. I have worked with a number of diverse organisations including social impact projects and start-ups. I have supported various stakeholders in getting their organisations to function more efficiently largely through the power of coaching, mentoring and conversation. Having set up 2 small businesses of my own I have sound commercial awareness but this is coupled with an empathic approach and a broad understanding of the issues faced by individuals who seek coaching or counselling.

I look forward to working with you!

Holly Coates

Hello, I’m Holly—an ICF Accredited Transformative Coach with a background in sales and marketing.

I have over a decade of experience developing marketing and commercial strategies for some of the world’s biggest youth culture companies, as well as multinational consumer brands. I leveraged this experience to help fast-growing scale-ups and SMEs drive growth and unlock new revenue opportunities.

Along the way, I’ve had the privilege of closely engaging with numerous founders. What resonated deeply with me was the intricate connection between our personal and professional lives. I realised that our career challenges often have roots in other areas of life, and the success of a business, along with it’s strategic initiatives, is intimately tied to the well-being of its founder and rested on the shoulders of a happy and healthy leader steering the ship.

I now integrate my corporate experience into my coaching practice, adopting a whole person approach. My passion lies in unlocking the potential within the founders behind the brands. I’m particularly passionate about helping founders navigate the uncertainties of entrepreneurship, guiding them out of the weeds, restoring balance in their lives, overcoming imposter syndrome, fostering confidence, defining authentic purpose and values, and empowering them to step into a leadership role with confidence —among many other things!

If this is something that resonates with you, I’d love to chat more. Send me an email to book a 30 min initial call where we can explore if I’m the right fit to support you on your journey. I look forward to connecting with you soon!

I help purpose-driven professionals thrive at work, so you can be brilliant at work you love, without burning out.

Barriers to thriving at work come in all shapes and sizes. I’ve supported previous clients with:
• Managing work-related stress and anxiety
• Improving work/life balance and boundaries

• Navigating change, including role and career transitions
• Returning to work, for example as a new parent
• Developing healthier habits and boosting mental wellbeing

COACHING STYLE
I offer a truly non-judgemental space, where you can explore your experience, gain insight, and make changes. My clients often describe me as calming, empathetic and gently challenging. As a scientist at heart, I draw on evidence-based approaches, such as positive psychology and cognitive behavioural coaching, to support my work. If you like, I can share ideas from psychology to support your coaching journey.
I primarily coach online via Zoom, which allows me to coach people all over the world, wherever they feel most comfortable.

EXPERIENCE
As well as my formal qualifications, I have experience coaching a wide variety of people and organisations. I’ve coached people at all levels of the organisation, from interns and graduates to founders and senior partners. I spent the first ten years of my career as a management consultant, and continue to work with organisations as a psychologist. So I understand what it’s like to work in a variety of contexts, as well as the realities of the modern workplace.

KEY QUALIFICATIONS
• ICF-Accredited Diploma in Transformational Coaching
• ICF-Accredited Certificate in Group Coaching
• MSc Psychological Sciences, UCL
• BA Natural Sciences (Genetics), University of Cambridge

OUTSIDE OF COACHING
I run Positive Psychology workshops and courses, teaching people key skills for thriving at work: resilience, mindfulness and emotional intelligence. I live in Bath with my partner and our cat Kingsley. I love reading, writing, and good food.

Cecilia Petersen

As a professional coach and psychologist with an MBA and master in Finance, I’ve been supporting businesses owners and entrepreneurs to launch their successful startups for over 4 years.

I can help you overcome your imposter syndrome and build resilience to become a successful business owner and make your project become the enterprise you dream it to be.

Richard Stoneman

Richard Stoneman, Executive Coach

After a career of working with leaders around the world, Richard qualified as an executive coach in 2017 with Meyler Campbell (www.meylercampbell.com). One of his first clients was the Founder CEO of a small Start Up turning over a few tens of thousands. This Start Up has since increased its revenues to around £10 million currently, doubling them each year, and is already profitable. Richard has worked with the CEO throughout, these days meeting him weekly as part of a two person advisory board. Following two successful fund raises, the Start Up first expanded its services from its London base across 60 UK locations and is now Scaling Up abroad following the second, with plans to expand globally. Further afield, Richard is on the advisory board of a Kenyan social impact Start Up that is now Scaling Up abroad.

As well as the UK, Richard has coached a diverse group of Founders and CEOs around the world, including India, Kenya, the Middle East, Europe, Australasia, Ukraine and the Caribbean. Whilst he still does some general coaching, his main interest these days is helping Start Ups on their always exciting and eventful journeys from small beginnings to successful Scale Ups. He has coached on two previous Unrest programmes.

Richard brings rich and diverse experience to coaching Founders. As a strategy and policy specialist, he has worked with leaders in a wide range of businesses, industries and government organisations across many differing cultures. In a career that has taken him to 50+ countries, his experience varies from helping set up a niche agri-business that became an industry leader in New Zealand, through masterminding the strategy for a Caribbean tourism destination that was subsequently voted no. 1 in the world to advising leading reformers on developing market economies following the collapse of the Soviet Union.

On graduating from Oxford, Richard worked as a UK Government economist for several years before taking an MBA at London Business School. He then worked mainly as a management consultant, with shorter periods as a CEO and in advisory roles. He carried out business research when awarded a mid-career Fellowship back in Oxford and later obtained the FT Non-Executive Director postgraduate diploma.

Helping clients think through their most important challenges and issues is the key to successful coaching and crucial to this is the development of a good relationship with the client. Richard has a non-directive style of coaching which is firmly focused on his clients’ needs and objectives. His personable approach gives them the time and space to reflect without interruption, whilst helping them to develop their thinking more deeply through challenging questions and observations. When drawing on his vast experience can benefit his clients, Richard also moves beyond non-directive coaching into more of a mentoring role.

Nana Meulengracht Larsen

I offer transformative coaching support to individuals at all leadership levels.
I particularly work with people around:
– change and transitions
– increasing wellbeing and resilience
– developing effective relationships and communication
– scrutinising insecurities and shifting belief systems
With 20+ years of solid operations and people management experience I understand the challenges many leaders face and I support the people I coach to develop strong sustainable foundations to work from.
This includes working to understand the vision that drives someone forward, their strengths, values and individual needs.
I work with people to develop greater awareness of the blind spots and limiting belief systems that hold them back and to practice new approaches instead.
I have significant experience in developing teams and individuals and work from a foundation if equity and inclusion.
This, combined with my other work as a Diversity & Inclusion consultant and First Aid for Mental Health trainer means that I have considerable understanding of the personal and systemic barriers to success many people face in the workplace and the crucial role leaders play in mitigating these.
This approach can support emerging leaders or those stepping up to new responsibilities to develop strong teams and cultures where diverse needs and talents are embraced.
Within the coaching space I work to build connection and trust as a foundation from which greater self-insight, courage and growth can spring.
Coaching sessions with me are usually a mixture of exploration and reflection combined with clear strategies for growth through practical goal setting and accountability.
I will meet my client as equals in a partnership of respectful challenge and assumption testing with a core belief in their courage and creativity to reach their goals.

Alex Whitton

I offer coaching to empower people to lead authentically and to create positive change. Through listening and asking questions, I aim to offer a space for people to work out where they are, where they want to be, and how to get there.

I have worked with founders to navigate challenges such as developing and managing a growing team, learning to lead with confidence, defining and communicating their vision and direction and how to transform that vision into a reality.

Professionally, I have run socially-impactful businesses including currently acting as a CEO for a growing education charity. Although not a founder nor a commercial entity, I understand first-hand the challenges of growing a business and team while juggling the demands and uncertainty of fundraising. These experiences help me to meet founders where they are as their coach while my coaching experience is broad and varied, from young people from underrepresented backgrounds with low self-esteem to retiring professionals. This experience has developed my ability to adapt my coaching approach to best serve each individual.

Personally, I believe we have all we need to fulfil our potential and as a coach I am passionate about working with individuals to find those answers and to create a positive impact by realising that potential.

Jo Ketley

Hello, I love the energy and intent behind Unrest! I’m excited by the possibility of partnering with you as you build something incredible.

A bit about me:

After 10 years working in business development in the advertising industry, I shifted my own career focus because I felt that there was more to life than climbing the corporate ladder and focusing on profit. I’ve worked with large global businesses such as WPP, The Body Shop, Havas Media, and Snap Inc., and independent businesses such as The Notting Hill Genesis Housing Association. I work part-time in the advertising industry running a leadership development programme for one of the world’s biggest media agencies.

I’ve experienced my own transitions and challenges including moving industry from music to advertising, moving continents from London to New York (and back again), moving roles from business development to people development, and balancing a part-time role with running my own coaching business. I aim to combine my real life experience with coaching tools and technique in an approachable way.

I live in South West London with my partner, step-daughter and 2 cats, and in my spare time I sing in a gospel choir.

Feel free to book a quick call and we’ll see if it’s a good fit.
