I first met Ann on a management course where Ann was the tutor; I was her student. It was clear that Ann had been a high-flying lawyer, who had built a second successful career as a tutor and a coach. Even before I engaged Ann’s services, as her student it was clear that she was eager for me to succeed in launching my new law firm, in what were challenging circumstances. As my coach we had enjoyable, thought-provoking, weekly coaching sessions. What I got out of it, most of all, was a goal-setting mentality. I commend Ann to you.

I cannot recommend Ann highly enough. I recently chose to become self-employed after years as an employee/partner. It was massively exciting but also scary and I needed some structure and ideas. To be blunt, I didn’t have a clue what to do. I spoke to another lawyer who recommended Ann. Ann has been incredibly supportive and helpful. She initially spoke to me about where I wanted my business to go and gave me ideas on how to get there. Stuff I hadn’t even thought about which have worked an absolute treat. Ann is also a great and empathetic listener. I find my time with her to be incredibly constructive and I always leave feeling clearer in my goals. Highly recommended.

I have been working with Ann Page for the last couple of years since becoming self-employed as a Consultant Solicitor. Ann is an excellent coach. She has been there and done it and is able to provide clear and insightful advice on running a business within the legal sector. Ann is an absolute pleasure to work with, she is quick to spot the issues in need of attention and offer solutions. I feel that Ann is my greatest supporter, delighted when things are going well, but not afraid to be frank when things need improving. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I met Ann at a seminar about LinkedIn and within minutes of talking to her was impressed with her infectious positivism, great energy and obvious intellect.

I had been thinking of a career change for some time and soon after meeting Ann I decided to engage her career coaching services to help me transition from Law to Business Analysis. Ann's help has been invaluable to me. She has great business and coaching knowledge. She was very systematic in her approach, gave enormous encouragement and kept me realistic as well as focussed. Without her input, I would not have achieved my goal so quickly.

Ann has been my mentor for approximately 4 years now and during that time has helped me through a job change and to navigate politics at work.  It has been invaluable to talk to someone who was independent, with Ann's level of experience and seniority, in a constructive and thought provoking manner and I could not have done it without her. Thank you Ann.

I have worked with Ann for a number of years on several strategic legal initiatives, including a detailed panel review project. I have also instructed Ann on training, coaching and mentoring, at both a group and personal level. On all fronts I have found her to be exemplary in her approach. Not only is Ann very experienced and knowledgeable, she is also commercially astute understanding the different stakeholder requirements that Legal functions face. In addition to this, she is a trusted confident who is able to lead and support the business/senior legal counsel with difficult/political legal issues, including leadership and engagement. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Ann on both a personal and professional level - with her senior experience she is a great personal support and advisor. I look forward to continuing my relationship with her in the future.

I write to thank you for all the invaluable help that you have given to me these past few weeks. I appreciate that your time and knowledge is extremely valuable and that you have shared it so generously and patiently with me.

You have a fantastic ability to recognise and explain the complexities of relationships within the legal profession and you have also helped to change my thinking and my actions. During our sessions, you did not hesitate to tactfully, but directly point out the areas that I needed to consider in a different way. With your help I was able to recognise where I could improve myself and I can now see myself more objectively.

As a result of your assistance I also have a much better understanding and greater confidence in my abilities for which I am very grateful. You have my highest recommendation as a mentor.

Ann’s relaxed manner and warm approach belies a razor-sharp business brain. She manages to guide, mentor, coach and steer all at once without ever making it feel like hard work. Ann’s natural effervescence and enthusiasm is contagious, and I have always found her a real pleasure to work with.

I used Ann’s services when I made the transition from corporate lawyer to legal recruiter – this meant having to learn new skills within a very short space of time and having to employ those skills from Day 1 on the job. Ann’s coaching techniques taught me how to develop the skills and confidence I needed for my new role. Ann is a warm person who is easy to talk with - I felt comfortable with her and, as a result, was able to be open with her as to the issues I thought needed to be addressed. Even after just one session with Ann, I felt more confident in my approach so much so that I began to enjoy developing my new skills rather than worrying about whether I would succeed in my new role, which I believe would ultimately have held me back from being successful.

Ann Page has coached me in both my professional and personal life to great effect. She is enjoyable to work with, yet her coaching is laser sharp and aims to get the best out of her client and move them forward. Her business background, and her sense of humour, gives her that coaching edge that can make all the difference. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
