  • Leadership development facilitator

Prior to becoming an executive coach and consultant, Anna had a 10-year career with the LEGO Group. As a senior HR business partner, she worked with directors and senior directors in a global HR role. She has also worked in the fast-paced telecoms industry.

Anna’s interest in coaching, leadership development and human behaviour led her to establishing Nova Blue Coaching Limited in 2017. Her work now focuses on coaching and leadership development to support the client’s individual needs. She is passionate about helping organisations and individuals to succeed and be the very best they can be. The past four years have shown that change happens fast and leaders recognise that being able to develop leadership skills in a changing environment is crucial.

Her approach to coaching gives leaders the space where they can do their best thinking and get clarity on the goals they need to focus on. This approach creates the thinking space needed to find the solutions to reach these goals. By establishing mutual trust and a confidential environment, Anna enables the space for exploration and personal growth. She has coached leaders from different industries, including telecoms, IT security, confectionary, aviation and the British Army.

As an experienced and engaging leadership development facilitator, with a passion for creating a great learning environment for delegates, Anna delivers programmes and workshops to leaders across different levels – including vice-president level. Her experience of facilitating leadership development workshops spans different industries and sectors, for example, fintech, the public sector, newspaper publishing, oil and gas, advertising, automotive and retail.
