I am a Londoner of Greek Cypriot heritage and have worked as a barrister, solicitor, investment banker, private equity executive, angel investor and board director across a range of industries in a professional services career spanning 30 years. I have lived and worked in the US, UK and the Middle East over that time.
Now an executive coach, my clients describe my approach as one that encompasses structure and challenge on the one hand and empathy and support on the other. My focus is on helping leaders to be in tune with themselves and their environment, tap into their inner resourcefulness and manage their interactions with others more effectively. This helps to nurture greater collaboration and collective success, while having some fun along the journey.
I have been entrusted with leadership responsibility around team cohesion, morale, mentoring and career development in all my prior roles, including as a Head of a team and as Chair of year-end review committees at Barclays investment bank for many years, as well as in senior positions at Credit Suisse, Lehman Brothers and Bank of America. I have thereby gained valuable insights into the importance of transparency, collaboration, diversity and inclusion in achieving the best results.
I am a graduate of Meyler Campbell's Mastered Programme, an accredited coach by the EMCC, a Fellow of the Institute of Coaching and a Hogan Certified practitioner.
