Pauline is an excellent coach. She is extremely friendly, warm and a natural at her trade. She is knowledgeable, and very professional.

I met Pauline at a time that I was feeling stuck and conflicted on What my next career move would be. From her coaching and advise, drawing from her own personal story, I subsequently got clarity of purpose and was able to make a daring professional move.

I would recommend her services greatly. She is amazing!

I first met Pauline in 2012 guided by a friend to get professional advice from a seasoned HR professional. Then, I was a young professional looking to Master in Human Resources yet only had one year experience in HR.

She candidly asked me ” how are you going to Master when you do not have experience? She proceeded to guide me first in enrolling at the Institute Of Human Resources Management for a Higher Diploma in HR. 8 years later in 2020, I was in a pivoting point in my career and needed guidance on the direction to position myself for ultimate success.

Through coaching she guided me on the trajectory and action points I needed to undertake. She systematically coached me on the skills sets I would need to be a transformational leader and attain my desired career goals. Her ease, candor, clarity and experience truly guided me not only in my career but on the vision of my life plan Thank you Coach Pauline!

Few people have the opportunity to report to a HR Director who is both a coach and a mentor – I did, when I worked for Pauline.

Intelligent and determined are words I would use to describe Pauline. She is a great team leader.
