Talking Talent have been going over a decade now – and we are pleasantly surprised by how much change and progress we have seen.
Ours was initially a niche business, but is now much better understood and valued. More and more leading organisations see the benefit in providing coaching and support to women at critical moments in their career (such as the return to work following children) and also to help them achieve the ambitious work goals they have whilst not compromising on identities outside of work.

Accompanying our most recent insight guide on building the business case, this next guest blog from Harriet Beveridge looks at a useful method of getting controversial areas on the table; finding a hot topic and using it as a Trojan horse.

Within our line of work “what is the true value of coaching?” is perhaps the question we get asked most frequently.
