The founder of Verosa, Beth spent over 16 years working at highest levels of UK Central Government.

More recently she has used those skills in leadership development, supporting decision makers and policy makers at the highest levels, including government ministers and department chiefs. Beth has always had a keen interest in developing people and in realising human potential. She recognised at an early stage that strong communication skills, building effective networks and teams and becoming an effective leader was crucial to the often life changing work in which she was involved.

Her style is dynamic and challenging as well as nurturing and pragmatic. She is a firm proponent of coaching the person not the problem and believes passionately in the power of the individual to self-actualise and overcome the obstacles that prevent us from becoming who we want to be.  In addition to coaching, Beth also offers bespoke leadership develop consultancy for companies looking to take a strategic approach to management development. Beth has a particular interest in women leaders and in the development of high potential recruits and emergent leaders.  She has also conducted research on fixing dysfunctional teams and on creating a value based culture.
