When you work with me at BESPOKEN, you will enter a safe, confidential space.
Although my sessions are bespoke to your requirements, there is a consistency in quality in all that you will be offered because it’s underpinned by the relevant qualifications, experience, research and ongoing learning. This ensures a quality that is guaranteed.
At BESPOKEN, we recognise that different is good. One size does not fit all. You will be listened to and responded to in the manner that best suits your diverse requirements; whatever will help you fulfil your true potential authentically.
There are multiple benefits to the tools and techniques delivered, helping you both professionally and personally by equipping you with transferable skills, making you more fruitful.
Unlike a plant that is pot bound, good skills in communication and thinking time will help you develop your full potential to the furthest reaches of your limits.
Because I believe this, sessions are challenging. In engaging with me, you are granting me social permission to feedback what I see and equip you to stretch and grow.
# Ferocious Care
At BESPOKEN, we recognise the uniqueness of the individual. All coaching, training and keynote speaking is bespoke to the client/audience needs and requirement. I am trained in SEN (Special Educational Needs) and have an EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) policy, which is not just written but lived.
Once a commitment is made, I promise to be available to my clients throughout the duration of the contract and afterwards, as agreed.
I seek to listen and coach with compassion, humility and generosity and encourage clients and audiences to treat myself and others in a like manner. Learning and empowerment flourish in such an environment. As such, I seek to deliver sessions and keynote speeches at an affordable rate and be flexible around the needs and requirements of my client.
BESPOKEN wishes to make and leave the world a better place.
We are sustainable, from coaching and training in transferable skills that are enduring, to printing and purchasing only when necessary.
We seek to charge fees that make BESPOKEN financially viable so that it can grow and support more people in as many walks of life as possible. For this reason, marketing expenses are kept to a minimum. For this reason, we can offer pro bono work with RGV (my charity, Raising Girls Voices) and communities. 80% of my time is chargeable; Up to 20% is devoted to disadvantaged causes.
We are relevant. Up to 10% of my time is spent in personal development, staying updated with current thinking and learning in my fields of expertise as well as world trends.
My Core Values
These words are the foundation and inspiration for BESPOKEN values, taken from an ancient proverb:
A woman of noble character who can find? Noble
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her Trustworthy
and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm, Value
all the days of her life.
She selects wool and flax Selective, yet
and works with eager hands.
She is like the merchant ships, Diverse and Inclusive
bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still night; Hardworking
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants. Generous
She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. Profitable
She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks. Healthy, wellbeing
She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night. Hardworking, Profitable
In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers. Creative and Innovative
She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy. Generous – Pro bono
When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet. Good planning
She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple. Quality
Her husband is respected at the city gate, Reputation
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them, Profitable, Innovative
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; Secure, Reputation
she can laugh at the days to come. Confident, Honourable
She speaks with wisdom, Learning, Training
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household Confidential
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; Reputation
her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women do noble things, Noble
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done, Honour, Reputation
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
