You're a powerful leader with unlimited potential.
But did you know that you're also a bit of a perfectionist?
And it's preventing you from being the amazing Entrepreneur & Leader you could be in English.
I know that you often feel stuck, uncertain or worried about your English being "too simple".
I know that it is affecting how you show up in your business with international clients.
I know that you often feel like you should be somewhere else by now, like you should be having more "global" success.
I know that you've already tried to find a solution in quite a few places. But none of them worked.
You can stop searching.
You've come to the right place.
I love helping non-native English-speaking Corporate Leaders & Entrepreneurs like you grow your confidence & communication skills to take your international career to the next level.
(if you're not sure whether you're a perfectionist or not, read about some of the main behaviours here)
You believe in what you do.
In your career. In your business.
You want to make a difference, create an impact, leave your mark in English.
This is what I do.
I listen deeply. I ask questions.
I understand who you are, what is holding you back, and what you need in order to take you where you want to go.
I coach you to help you to find the best words to express yourself clearly, concisely and naturally in English.
In a way that will attract your ideal clients to you AND that leaves you feeling confident, certain and proud of what you do.
For your meetings, presentations, workshops, websites, Linkedin profile, interviews.... ALL your business conversations.
In other words, I help you to become the boss of your brain in English and style your communication skills so that they fit you like your favourite jacket AND catch the eye of your most-wanted clients.
When you are above intermediate level in English, there is only ONE obstacle to the results you want:
Your WAY OF THINKING in and about English.
This is the only thing standing between where you are and where you want to be.
Meet Your Coach
Hi I’m Kelly.
I'm a British "city" girl who has chosen a greener lifestyle in the South of France.
Before becoming my own boss, I worked for almost 20 years for international companies in Monaco, in the areas of Communication and HR.
I was the person who people came to when they wanted to pass a message in English in the clearest and most impactful way possible.
The way that would get them the result they wanted.
So you could say that I know a thing or two about what works and what doesn't in terms of communication.
What's more, being a Coach and Leader of my own business (AND a recovering perfectionist!), I have experienced how our thoughts and unconscious beliefs can initially hold us back from the results we want. That's why I love helping Entrepreneurs and Leaders like you to:
1/ build a "greener" mindset around your abilities in English so that you can feel more confident and trust yourself more
2/ grow your communication skills in your business so that you can really connect with international clients, contacts and colleagues.
I work with Leaders who want to achieve more international success, who want to LEAD in the language.
In other words, with me,
- you develop a fertile mindset and find your inner power & natural flow
- your communication in English comes alive
- you AND your business/career can grow.
Because our ability to communicate well with others is closely connected to how we communicate with ourselves.
But we are often our own obstacle: we doubt ourselves and fear takes over. The feeling of "not good enough" prevents us from speaking up. We miss golden opportunities to shine and we feel powerless because we give all of our power away.
Ready to achieve that global impact you desire for you and your business?
Let's have a conversation to discuss what it would look like to work together.
I enjoyed the progression of the work to create a speech that I can use in different occasions. Also the way I learned how it should be organized and how I can divide the speech in smaller chunks with an anchor easily to remember.
I surely have more confidence before a speech and I have a clear mind on what to expect and how I can organize the speech beforehand. Also I had great teachings about the delivery.
I think the recap you send after each session is great and really helpful. I realized how useful it is just to review that and keep it fresh so it is easier to keep going.
Kelly is a great listener that creates a safe, low-pressure, and very friendly environment. During the sessions, we went deep to unveil personal misconceptions and worked on the core elements behind the thoughts that were holding me back. Her approach and ability make the process very enjoyable and tangible.
Being able to understand the root of my thoughts and that I am responsible for labelling those thoughts/feelings were a game changer for me. I have learned how to understand my thoughts and how I can become a good English communicator. By using the tools and resources shared during and after the sessions I have already seen improvements in my confidence and communication capabilities.
Kelly is a fantastic person who made a great impact on my life as a non-native English speaker. Thank you, Kelly, for guiding me through this amazing journey of reflection and improvement.
I like your patience and the way you find the root of my issue. You’re not like someone who just jump to conclusion and see my issue with English as a problem to be fixed. You emphasized that it is the tool that I was missing, and I just need some strategies to help me speak confidently. There’s nothing wrong about my English, and I should be proud of being a bilingual speaker. And I find that empowering. You are actually the first native speaker telling me this.
The strategies of preparing my mind are very helpful and in so doing I can reclaim my confidence. This actually worked. And I am so pleased to have learned these kinds of strategies. I think I become more confident in my English communication. I know more about how and why my mind blocks my English ability, and how I can fix that.
I also appreciated very much your last session that we worked together to refine my presentation. You’ve helped me make it more engaging and accessible.
Yesterday I filed all the documentation we produced during these coaching sessions and it was quite impressive!
Your rigor, the coherence in your expectations, and the notes you were sending after each session were a great help to keep me on track.
Knowing you personally made me feel comfortable in our communication. I was not embarrassed to make mistakes and our sessions were always joyful and productive.
This coaching helped me to feel confident again to speak English in a business environment.
Thank you also for all the tips and advice about LinkedIn.
Kelly is not only a good English teacher, she is also a wonderful professional Coach. With her, I learned to be confident again, to understand that English is just a great communication tool and to accompany me in my professional change. She constantly adapted our sessions to my needs and my professional orientation. Through our sessions in English, I was able to better understand what I wanted.
So, if you need to strengthen your English, I highly recommend you to take lessons with Kelly. This is not a traditional Business English course, it is communication in English with a caring and professional person.
Learning with Kelly is like meeting a good friend with whom you can either dive into professional matters or chat and choose among the five who’s your favorite spice girl! Whether during on line or on co-walking sessions she’ll help you moving your English and curiosity upwards together with regular and consistent written summaries. I really appreciated working with you Kelly and thank you for your professionalism and friendly coaching.
It’s easy to work with Kelly and I like the fact that she can adjust and be flexible. What I liked the most was her focus on the mindset foundations and her gentle reminders to go back and review what I think/what I want to feel about it. The most valuable thing to me was understanding how the brain works and I’ve learned some really powerful techniques which have helped me to think differently about my English communication and grow in confidence.
Our sessions were wonderful, effective and motivating! You helped me to find the best shape to explain my experience. I was able to be myself, more confident, speak clearly, stay simple. This got me to conduct effective interviews in English and finally to have a new job in a new company. I am now more confident, I don’t have fears when someone from other countries/regions calls me and starts to speak in English, when I ask a question or when I want to explain my opinion.
I was tired of feeling down, unheard and misunderstood. I really did not know where to look for help. I enjoyed working with Kelly, and working on my own ghosts. The results are that she helped me to bring from my unconscious to my conscious some fears and face them. I can now analyse myself and my thoughts clearly.
I realized that maybe what I really needed was something different. I needed to improve my self confidence to push myself beyond my deep barriers. We started coaching sessions and, step by step, I became who I really wanted to be: someone that isn’t scared of changing, who rises to the challenges and who doesn’t choose always her safe zone. Looking behind I see all the successes I got since Kelly is coaching me and now I couldn’t do without her!
Working with Kelly is a real pleasure, her professionalism, patience and interests in life are making her one of the best Coaches I’ve ever met. For me it was a real gift to find a mix of professional coaching and English. She supported me in my life challenges, like to join the EMBA program, and also shared my interests like psychology education. She is very passionate and her great sense of humor made me wait for each lesson. Her proper way of giving feedback helps to keep focus on language improvement. Her highly prepared way of working helped me with discipline. Thank you Kelly!!!
Kelly is much more than an English teacher, she’s really an English coach in the sense that she’s able to focus our main discussion on my personal interests and little by little we are sharing a lot about my way of life, my thoughts, my desires and my fears. And I have become aware that I can express myself in English, with depth. I can express a lot of ideas and emotions, I can share points of view extensively and discuss matters. I am so happy to realize that I have some good English bases which have been sleeping in my brain for 20 years, and Kelly has managed for the past 4 months to show me them and to improve them. The consequence of this is that I have gained more confidence. And gaining more confidence, I am happy to speak in English, I speak more, I enjoy writing in English too, I watch movies and I listen to radios programs… Well, I am surprising myself. I am waiting for this day when I will be able to dream and think in English, and I am sure that it will come soon… because after each lesson, Kelly sends to me a lot of tools to improve my vocabulary and my grammar and it’s so useful!
And the most important thing is that Kelly is really attentive. Her kindness, her gentleness and her constant positive support mean that I am waiting with pleasure for each lesson. Thank you so much Kelly for your help and your sincere enthusiasm!!
I have acquired a lot from Kelly, she is professional, she is able to help me to elevate myself to the next level.
Kelly is the best English coach that I have ever met. She is a good listener. She listens deeply and observes, then illuminates what lies beneath the surface that holds me back or moves me forward.
She helps me to clarify my dilemma/problems through a list of insightful questions at and after each coaching session. After each session, Kelly sent a very detailed session note to follow up. She is amazingly resourceful and focused. It was really a fruitful journey. Kelly helps me to create more space for myself, and now I have greater peace of mind.
I always recommend Kelly to friends who have a hump to get over or just need a third party to help them get unstuck.
Grâce à Kelly, sa patience, ses cours très bien ciblés, son authenticité … j’ai vraiment progressé au point de me lancer le défi de partir en terre anglophone seule. Je me suis super bien débrouillée.
Thanks to Kelly, her patience, her personalized lessons, her authenticity… I’ve really improved to the extent that I even set myself the challenge of travelling to England alone. It went really well.
A great pleasure to share 1:1 course with Kelly. Her approach is very hopeful and exciting. After only 10 lessons, I feel more confident with my English! Thank you Kelly!
I have been working with Kelly for a whole year. For me this is a great achievement. Kelly is energetic and proactive, able to catch and develop an interesting and useful discussion. She is not only an excellent teacher of English, but also a coach in self-development. Tips and explanations after each lesson that Kelly sends by email help to consolidate.
When I was assigned to a regional position after I had worked for local roles for the past 16 years, I realized that the situation was much tougher than I anticipated mainly due to my English proficiency and gaps in cultural diversity. I want to tell ‘be prepared before you get into that situation’. However, if you are in a situation similar to mine, you may have a hope. It won’t be too late if you can find an outstanding coach like Kelly. I learned how I can speak better in concise and succinct way, how to make successful presentation and how to obtain desired outcomes from fierce debate and competitions. I prefer to call her a coach, instead of an English teacher, because she carefully listened to me, healed me and provided solutions even when my mental collapsed. Now, I am somewhat confident of my English skills, because I now know how to speak concisely, listen carefully and understand context, ask at the right time and how to continue the whole conversation. I’m so glad I have been able to regularly study with Kelly for the past 3 years, and I will continue to improve my communication skills with her help.
Thank you, Kelly for encouraging me. I’m feeling more confident than before. It was very kind teaching and coaching. So helpful for me.
My favorite teacher ever!
I’ve been studying English since I was 6 and I can definitely say I have never met a coach like Kelly! Her lessons are extremely fine-tuned to student needs and skills and this makes the interaction very comfortable. After only two months I’m feeling more confident and definitely able to understand native speakers better and to speak in public. She’s the person you have to choose if you want really to stand out from the crowd and make an impact in English!
