Voted ‘most likely to succeed’ and graduating top of her class aged 17, Anna studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Oxford. She then continued on to do a post-graduate degree in International Relations at the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, Switzerland, also completing internships at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and a number of non-governmental organisations.
‘Ending up’ in corporate marketing after completing her PPE degree at the University of Oxford, she spent the formative years of her career in beauty and luxury brand management at multinational Procter & Gamble (P&G), staying in Geneva.

What past clients have to say…
“I highly recommend Anna as a coach. My own experience has been fantastic and so valuable. During our coaching engagement, I’ve moved to a new role within my company, changed how I approach problems, found closer alignment of my own purpose and values with those of my organisation, increased my confidence in things like external networking, and my mental health has significantly improved overall.”
“Anna supported me as a coach during a period of tremendous change professionally and it was the best thing I did! She was the anchor that kept me focused on what my ultimate life and career goals are and what my rocking chair moment was, which was to create a happy and positive environment for me and my family to thrive in and to have a job enabled me to do that.”
“Anna is a brilliant and insightful coach, who really manages to go deep with your questions and issues. She has a very pragmatic and effective approach that she tailors to your specific needs, to where you are at the moment and, most importantly, to where you want to go. This is an approach that works also to help you gain clarity and consequently a more fulfilling professional life.”
How you can work together
Anna typically works with clients in the following ways:
AN INTENSIVE 90-MINUTE POWER SESSION – Ideal for a specific topic or challenge such as nailing your elevator pitch, reviewing your LinkedIn profile, or assessing a new opportunity, we’ll get super focused to get you the clarity you’re after in just one session.
A 3-MONTH COACHING PROGRAMME – We’ll work together on your specific objectives, such as answering the question, “What’s next?”, crafting and bringing to life your personal brand, or designing more effective work-life integration for you and your family.
A 1-DAY IN-PERSON SESSION – There’s nothing like a one-day deep-dive to make massive progress together in a short space of time. This session can also be adapted to be virtual, depending on location and availability.
