Hetty works globally as a leadership coach and facilitator with individuals, teams and organisations. She brings 30 years of psychology and executive coaching experience to her work.
Hetty’s career has spanned the arts, journalism and TV, psychology, health, and organisational development. She has worked internationally for over 25 years, designing and delivering global coaching-leadership and culture change programmes in corporate and public sector, both in English and French. Her approach is holistic, spanning work, life and strategic development and integral, seeing the individual or team as part of their context.
A key focus for Hetty is women’s leadership: recent projects include Femmes Leaders de Demain, a large-scale European funded leadership programme across North Africa for young women activists and her successful niche programme: Purpose Power Presence: programmes for women leaders. Hetty is on the faculty of the global change organisation Rising Women Rising World (founded by Scilla Elworthy, Jean Houston and Rama Mani). She chaired the groundbreaking FemmeQ summit in Berlin, which launched the concept of Feminine Intelligence.
A founder member of Be the Change, the social change organisation which recognises environmental wellbeing, social justice and spiritual fulfilment as interdependent for sustainability, in 2014 she joined Leaders Quest, which introduces business leaders to unfamiliar perspectives and remarkable leaders in unusual places to inspire them to create new opportunities for themselves, their companies and their communities.
