Coach | Trainer | Gender Equity Champion

Helping women leaders regain their work boundaries, confidence and feel bloody marvellous again!

Susan B Bentley smiling

Let’s face it, no one gives you a rule book on how to lead!


You’re fed up in your job.

You’re fed up with your team.

You’re fed up with your boss!

Micromanagement, sexism, ‘difficult’ staff, feeling lost about where you thought you might be at your age and where you actually are, wanting to change jobs but not ‘abandon’ your team, not enough time to have a life! With only 10% of leaders in UK tech being women, your job can feel like an absolute grind at times!

Added to all these external forces, if you’re a high achiever, I bet you’re putting high expectations on yourself most of all and offering little reward to yourself for ‘a job well done’. 

Working with me can be a way out of those feelings of guilt, dread, frustration and often anger so you can feel less stressed, more in control, happier and more confident about your job and your career vision.

I’m your thinking partner and honest challenger for coaching on topics such as your career journey, leadership skills, confidence.

Enhance employee engagement and retention with 1 to 1 coaching or group coaching for your women leaders. Build your team’s confidence with group self-development training.

    What clients say about working with me

    Inspirational to feel so well understood and then that’s translated into action that I could feel fired up about and knew was going to be a success.

    Coaching Client

    We’ve all got our stories and to finally think I’m worthy and valid, as part of the team, as a result of my coaching is amazing. You never stop learning about yourself.
