Cathy Presland, a former economist, has over two decades of experience across government, international organisations, corporate, business, and non-profits. Best-selling author, advanced transformative coach, and highly-regarded trainer, Cathy is widely published, has taught tens of thousands of students online and offline, is a powerful coach and engaging speaker.
In her former career as an economist Cathy advised governments and organisations around the world. She set up a micro-credit fund for women, negotiated European regulations, managed multi-billion pound economic programmes, and designed and led global anti-poverty initiatives.
Cathy's ambition is to help you see who you really are and do more of the work that creates impact for those around you.
Professionally, Cathy works as an executive coach to leaders, social entrepreneurs and those wishing to make a bigger difference with their work.
"I help people understand how our mind works, how to live a good life and how to create impact in the world. What we don't realise is that the limitations we think are holding us back from the happiness, fulfilment and achievement we want, come from thought, not from reality. Seeing why that happens and how to move beyond it, is the most powerful thing in the world," she says.
Although her clients come from all sectors, their common connection is that they are interested in creating something bigger than themselves -- whether that's tackling global challenges, creating a turnaround in their business, or bringing the best of themselves to a new job.
Cathy's courses focus on the part of her work that supports writers and people who want to share their expertise, experience and passions. "It's exciting to help someone shape their ideas into something tangible. Writing, especially, stretches us as a person, we grow and change in ways we didn't imagine. You change, and you can change the world. It's really simple."
In her spare time she loves to be outdoors and one of her recent trips was to the Annapurna base camp in beautiful Nepal.
