Susan's strengths are in working with people who are out of their comfort zone.  For example, she enjoys working with newly-promoted leaders; people leading in periods of significant change; and people coming back from difficult circumstances, such as a career setback or a blow to self confidence. 

She is fascinated by human interaction and communication.  Therefore she also specialises in coaching for sensitive and persuasive communications, between two individuals or one-to-many.

Originally a marketer, Susan held senior marketing management positions and worked as an international copywriter for global brands.

Within ARK, Alex is also uniquely placed to coach people experiencing conflict situations. 

Alex spent 10 years in HM Prison Service as a governor  and inspector.  He brings knowledge and insight into the public and third sectors.
