What our Clients' have to say
"Chrissie is one of those rare individuals who quietly has it all. With a commercial mindset born and nurtured in one of the biggest retailers of its time and an ability to lead, inspire, hold to account and engage a team, Chrissie was and always will be my go-to person when I need a leader to step in, harness the capability of the team and deliver results. Chrissie brought clarity, focus and at the same time a huge positive and personal impact on the team she directly lead, as well as many individuals she worked with. With an enviable natural coaching capability, commercial acumen, integrity, a firm but fair stance when needed, but most of all a true passion for individuals to achieve their true potential, I recommend Chrissie irrespective of whether you need someone to step in; develop and allow that penny to drop; individually or group coach your managers and leaders."
Anna - Head of Audiology Careers
"Chrissie is the definition of an inspirational leader. Coming into Medivet with a fresh set of eyes she helped shape the start of our career pathways. She has a wealth of knowledge in all aspects of learning and development and empowered us to own and deliver projects across such a rapidly growing business. Her coaching and mentoring skills are second to none. Her approach is non-judgemental, encouraging and I really feel she's helped me develop on a path to hopefully being a leader myself one day. I think any of us would snap up the opportunity to work with Chrissie again in a heartbeat."

Karen - Private coaching client
Christine’s coaching services couldn’t of come at a better time in my life. Trying to juggle a senior role involving long commutes across the UK, whilst to trying to maintain a family home with 2 young children was proving to be a challenge and was really starting to affect me emotionally & physically, with confidence levels at an all-time low. Christine’s ability to structure the sessions and tailor the coaching techniques to my circumstances has contributed positively to the way I think and manage day to day situations in all aspects of life. Her warmth and sincerity made me feel at ease at all times enabling me to confidently open out about how I feel. Reflecting back from where I started, through this process I have become a much stronger individual, mum and wife. Recognising what’s important in life and managing situations rationally. Christine has truly had a positive impact on my life and I am so glad I have had the opportunity to work with her. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for personal or professional direction and support.
Julie - Head of Client Development - Commercial logistics company
Timing is everything! My coaching experience with Christine came at the right time in my career. We set goals early on in the process and kept them in our sights as we engaged on the many issues that popped up along the way. Christine timed the coaching perfectly to enable complete success of my goals supporting with the many tools and experience she has.
I have walked away from our engagement with a treasure trove of skills that will drive my approach for a long time to come.
Christine Coates gets my highest recommendation as a professional coach and mentor. Her unique ability to recognize, understand, and explain complex business relationships has revolutionized my thinking, and most importantly, my confidence and actions.
I name Christine as one of the top contributors to my success and the fact that I enjoy my current role today.
Thank you Christine.

Sue Featherstone - Leadership development consultant & trainer. Experienced executive coach│ Team coach Supervisor
Christine is an extremely professional, experienced executive and personal coach, leadership, team and organisational change and development specialist. Over the projects and organisations that I have worked with Christine, her wide range and wealth of knowledge, experience and skills are an asset to her. She can assess any organisation, team and individual situation with fresh, commercial and developmental eyes in a way that outclasses others in her field. Christine easily bespokes her approach and style to suit the cultural and personal needs and has long lasting impact and success. This is her strength, she can reach parts others would shy away from and sticks to the task in hand with dogged determination, never giving in on the assignment, project or individual until their needs are actualised. Christine is a pleasure to work with and learn from and would be an asset to any employer or individual wanting to transition their commercial, team or personal aspirations and goals.
Managing Director - Blackshaw Howell Consulting
I have recently worked with Christine on an individual basis and in group sessions. I have found her to be engaging and effective both facilitating a session with a number of strong minded individuals and in one to one discussions. She displays a high degree of professionalism at all times and has an open questioning style which enables her to get to root cause. When talking through solutions her experience means she is supportive, and she can suggest a large number of tools and techniques to get the best from any situation. I have benefited from my time working with Christine and am happy to recommend her.
