Episode One - Cathy Presland FRSA
Cathy Presland is an executive coach and leadership consultant, former economist, public policy professional and senior leader. An adviser to Governments and international organisations around the world for over twenty years, she has lived and worked in Africa, where she designed and led global anti-poverty initiatives including setting up a micro-lending fund for women, working for a policy think tank, and consulting for the World Bank, the European Union and other governments and international organisations along the way. She had held senior positions in the public sector, working alongside heads of government, negotiated EU regulations, and headed up the strategic development of multi-billion-euro economic development funds.
In 2009, she moved away from the world of large-scale change in 2009 to become the person behind the scenes who supports the leaders of today and tomorrow. A highly regarded trainer, she had over 24,000 students in my online training courses, was a tutor for the Guardian Masterclasses series, and is the author of Write! Stop waiting, start writing, a well-regarded guide on writing non-fiction. She is Co-Lead at the RSA’s Coaching Network.
