An experienced and skilled Coach and Trainer based in Donegal, Cathy brings a passion for personal growth and leadership development. She is a strong advocate of coaching to build and develop high performing leaders and teams in a fast-paced environment, as well as during periods of transformational change.
Before specialising in coaching, Cathy worked for 7 years at a senior level in marketing, occupying roles such as Senior Brand Manager and Head of Marketing for companies in the FMCG Food industry. In her most recent role with Danone, Cathy was instrumental in the integration of the Irish & UK businesses and in the development of a strategy, which successfully returned the Irish business to growth.
