"Annie has a great coaching style; although she could undoubtedly have written the plan within a few hours, she encouraged me to work through each section and to tailor it to exactly meet the needs of my own business. This not only gave me ownership but also meant that I fully understood what I was aiming for. She helped me to appreciate the many things that we had already accomplished within our building yet recognise new goals for the coming months and years ahead. The goals Annie helped me set are ambitious yet achievable and have never felt unrealistic.
Annie has helped me realise that our vision should extend beyond merely our own businesses. By ensuring that our ‘green credentials’ are robust and by making these more visible to anyone coming in contact with our business, we have the ability to encourage others to adopt more sustainable practice. This is such a powerful tool and a significant way to achieve our goal to reduce our impact on the planet."

“The coaching sessions provided me a chance to make a real behaviour change in a supportive, non-judgmental way. They allowed me to make informed choices that fit with my values and lifestyle. As a result of the coaching my mindset has shifted; change might not be the easiest thing to do but it can be very rewarding!”
Jo K, Conservation Charity Worker
"Previously, the idea of being more sustainable has always been pushed to the back of my mind. Annie's coaching allowed me to create a vision for the future of my company that is achievable, attainable and relevant. Now sustainability sits right in the forefront of my thoughts and flows into every corner of my business."

"It's such a relief to have a personalised report which outlines both quick fixes and longer term ideas. It’s also great that the ideas aren’t overly complex or expensive which has been a worry when trying to work my way through such a confusing landscape. We are able to make changes according to our budget and skills and save money too!"

“It was a wonderful doing the Carbon Literacy training with Annie. We learnt such a lot of facts and she inspired us to take the next step or five which we would not have done otherwise. I highly recommend the course and Annie"

“The course covers a broad diversity of topics, really engaging the audience not only with informative, factual information, but also actions that are available to us all as sole traders, SMEs and individuals. Well worth it. Well done Annie.”
