I have worked with a myriad of tried and tested methodologies in the coaching, facilitation and reconciliation fields for more than 15 years, presenting pre-designed material to clients.
As a professional coach, I draw on methodologies appropriate to each client’s needs. I encourage my clients to listen to both their heads and their hearts, and to draw on their innate knowledge and experience in finding their way forward.
Coaching clients include CEOs, directors, small business owners and students, with the benefits of coaching support being experienced in both personal and professional lives.
As an accredited diversity practitioner and gender reconciliation facilitator, I have conducted regular diversity management and gender workshops in work environments, at schools, with civil society and other interest groups. I am a member of the Anti-Racism Network coordinated by the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation.
Clients I have worked with:
- Inspirational Development Group (IDG), London: Facilitated induction sessions focusing on values-based behaviours for African-based staff of a global financial institution.
- TB HIV Care Association (National NGO): Designed and facilitated a ‘Business Unusual’ strategy and work plan session in the form of a shared learning platform.
- Hubble Studios (E-learning Agency): Using Transactional Analysis techniques, I designed an interactive workshop and supported the team to interact in a more mature and effective way.
- Institute for Justice & Reconciliation (IJR): Designed and facilitated a gender sensitization and focus group discussion in a farming community for the Gender Justice & Reconciliation programme.
- One World Sustainable Developments: Mandy facilitated focus group discussions with farmers, teachers and chiefs in rural Lesotho; facilitated multi-sectoral climate change adaptation strategy discussions in Uganda, and assisted with capacity building of SADC member states in preparation for COP climate change negotiations.
- FASSET: Presented and trained diversity management, business writing and presentation skills, customer relations for organisations in the financial sector.
In essence, I support people to connect to themselves, others and our earth.
