“It is so very difficult when searching for a senior role for yourself to get competent unbiased feedback on your resume, interview technique and approach. Unfortunately, and with good reason, most recruiters cannot provide honest and direct feedback on why you weren’t chosen for a role. This makes it difficult to identify areas for improvement and take action. After struggling with a number of failed attempts to secure my desired role, I decided to seek professional help and Shireen was recommended by a colleague.

Shireen was instrumental in building my confidence in my resume, reconfiguring my LinkedIn profile and helping me identify several issues in the language I was using to communicate in interviews. She provided me with tools to assist developing my brand and coached me through a mock interview. The experience was sometimes confronting, but Shireen courageously and competently guided me to an understanding of what I was poorly projecting and how best to develop a better way to truly show my authentic self with the utmost of integrity. I can’t thank her enough for this insight and ultimately, success, in securing the role I wanted.” Client

“Shireen gave me relevant and practical insights, supporting my transition from employment to developing my own business and self marketing. I appreciate her relaxed, understanding and professional approach.” Client

“Shireen is a knowledgeable, professional and inspirational business coach I had the pleasure of working with over four sessions. Having been out of the workforce for quite some time on a career break, Shireen’s advice and guidance on areas such as the hidden job market and the importance of building networks was invaluable. In particular, Shireen’s ability to listen and really understand the matter at hand helped me to regain my confidence and really analyse the direction I wanted to take my future career. I looked forward to each session and left feeling energised and focussed. This whole process has given me the tools and confidence to focus on a different career path, something I don’t believe I would have had the ability to do had I not engaged her services. I would highly recommend her services to anyone requiring business coaching.” Client

“A couple of years ago, Shireen supported me during a recruitment process from candidate to employee with impeccable work ethics, very professional approach and delivered an outstanding service until I was well settled in my job. For the coming years, I continued following her great insight advice on employability improvements and her wealth of knowledge about job market trends and modern job hunting techniques. Recently, I have encountered some difficulties in my career progression and have sought her professional advice. As I expected, Shireen was very attentive to my concerns and provided me with very practical guidance and recommendations that did help me to regain my confidence. Also, she has significantly assisted me to improve my personal branding and Linkedin profile. I very much appreciate her approachable style and dealing with her has been a pleasure.” Client

“I would highly recommend Shireen to anyone looking to take their interview performance to the next level. As well as providing a strong sounding board to focus and refine my preparation, I found her strategies for acting with greater impact and engaging the audience to be a source of advantage. While it may have taken a leap of faith to seek out coaching in the first place, I am really glad that I did and would encourage others to step up as well. You won’t regret it.” Client

“Got the job, and negotiated an extra $5k. With the salary sacrificing options on offer, I’m very pleased with the net outcome. Thanks again for your help and support along the way! I’ll happily recommend you to colleagues and friends, and may well be in touch down the track to upskill further.” Client
