Salma Shah

Before leaving her corporate career Salma Shah worked for Oracle, PeopleSoft, Systems Union and eGain. By no means a techie, her secret to success was communication, trusting her gut instinct, figuring out what clients wanted and building strong customer relationships. In 2003 she dived back into her degree and obsession for positive psychology and retrained as a co-active CTI coach.

Today she has a thriving personal branding coaching and training business (www.salmashah.com). Salma believes in taking her clients forward quickly, asking powerful questions, sharing her wisdom and experience rather than spending months naval gazing. She has since worked with a wide portfolio of clients with a global reach, enabling her to experience diverse and innovative approaches.

She has been featured in Psychologies Magazine, The Independent, The Guardian, Marie-Claire, The Stylist and The Pool.

Salma’s goal and philosophy is to support people so they can live authentic and more productive lives.

Michelle Coffman

Michelle Coffman is an Australian who has been living in London for the past 20 years and has two daughters (15 & 12). Moving to the UK without knowing anyone was brave step no. 1! Michelle spent her whole working life building a career in Human Resources working for companies such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Hutchison Whampoa (who own 3, Superdrug, Perfume Shop etc) and mid-sized technology and telecoms companies working her way up to Human Resources Director. Michelle found her career in HR incredibly rewarding however 18 months ago Michelle changed career direction when she was appointed as Operations Director for Landways; a start-up telecoms business which installs and maintains digital infrastructure for high density locations (Wi-Fi and mobile coverage in stadiums and shopping malls to you and I). That was brave step no. 2 and she hasn’t looked back since!
