I worked with Maura during a transition period in my career. The work we did together really brought clarity to my decision making process and allowed me to make the next steps in my career development. Maura brings both a quantitative perspective, as well as years of hands-on business experience to bear, and she is also a great sounding board in general. I would certainly work with Maura again and I have also recommended her to my current organization for exec coaching.

In 2008, I engaged Maura and her team to work on a managerial skills training for our retail managers in Hong Kong. With her rich experience in managerial and leadership training, it was the right decision to look to Maura for a tailored process of high quality.
I was impressed with the thorough needs analysis Maura has conducted which included a few very fruitful meetings in understanding our situation and my expectations. Throughout the process, Maura continued to communicate with me frequently and was able to take my feedback and transformed into the program.
Maura has a unique manner of working in that she is able to exercise a high level of flexibility within a very organized structure. As a client, we were able to benefit from her detail planning and reliability to deliver, as well as the agility we require from an external consultant to fit our needs.

In the past 3 years the Watson business in Asia had gone through a phase of incredible growth. We were looking for an executive coach who could quickly help us identify areas for personal development and help us cut through some cultural challenges we were facing. Maura worked directly with myself and several members of the AS Watson team as an executive coach in 2006 / 2007.
The time spent with Maura was time well invested and she made a big difference to the way we worked, providing some great insights!
Her forthright style and ability to get to the root causes of the issues really helped us move forward.
I personally would recommend Maura to anyone who needs to have a “straight shooter” as a coach and is willing to embrace a change!
