I have worked with Aoife for over two years. She has assisted me with employee issues that were made much easier by her training in performance management. She helped me through difficult coaching conversations and together we reached the objectives we set out to achieve. Aoife is approachable, personable and has expert level knowledge of the Human Resources function. She handled all of our HR activity with the utmost professionalism. I find that Aoife’s ability to effect positive change in a company comes easily when working with her. From creating a program to bring new employees on board quickly to managing them throughout the year, I find her to be a valuable asset to my organization.

Aoife partnered with me in my efforts to develop and build a stronger financial planning team at Datto. A great depth of HR knowledge and calming presence enables her to strategize and meet any situation I throw her way. She approaches issues with an eye to balance the company requirements, the team development needs with my own leadership goals. She has a great positive approach and always does what she says she’s going to do. Aoife would be a true asset for any business experiencing high levels of change.

I came to know Aoife through my interactions at SHRM and PepsiCo. She is a dynamic HR leader. She was very supportive during my career transition from the Food and Beverage industry to Pharma. Her insights were invaluable during the negotiation of my offer, as well as, my onboarding. I can't thank her enough for her personal advice. She continues to check in and stay in touch to ensure my continued success. Amazing!!

Aoife was of tremendous support to me during the time that she coached me. She was sensitive and thoughtful throughout a long and challenging process, and her experience as a senior HR professional with Fortune 500 companies added meaningful perspective to my search. Aoife shared sound direction for improving my resume and interviewing, actionable ideas for researching companies and cultures, and insightful advice as I negotiated my offer. If you are – or think you will be going – through this, get her on your side.

Aoife is a truly gifted professional: she had the ability to solicit characteristics within myself in a very short period of time. Her coaching provided me with great value and benefit: self-awareness, renewed focus on goals and objectives, clarity on my actions, and proactive visionary management, to name just a few. Her sessions reinforced and accelerated my journey toward self-realization. Coaching was a great investment of my time! I have learned more ways to effectively bring out my authentic self, both at home and in the work environment. Empower, commit, be consistent and stay focused: the new me after Aoife's impact.

Aoife is a talented coach with keen insights into executive leadership, particularly with human resource challenges. She was prompt, professional and highly perceptive at helping me to navigate the on-boarding issues I was facing with a new executive role. Not only did she assist me by asking the right questions, she provided a number of extremely helpful tools so that I could “dig deeper” into the issues I was grappling with. In just a few coaching sessions, Aoife was able to help me to uncover the answers that ultimately were within myself so that I could “breakthrough” and move to a new level of personal and business success.

Starting a business can be very gratifying but at the same time it can be challenging putting the pieces together successfully. Aoife understood my challenges and helped me find possible solutions by changing my perspective on certain matters. She also has a clever way of reminding me of my strengths, ability and creativity. This is a very powerful exercise and in doing so I am always taken on a journey of deeper self discovery. Aoife, thank you for being so insightful and thank you for caring."

I’ve known Aoife for some time and in my current role as Director of Talent Management for an international NGO, I had the distinct pleasure of being able to once again work with Aoife who facilitated coaching workshops for our leaders. The opportunity to provide staff with this type of professional development training was invaluable. Time flew by in the highly energetic & engaging Coaching for Internal Success program. Aoife created customized content for us that was targeted, interactive and current, keeping best practice in mind.

I consider myself very fortunate to have Aoife as my coach. For many years I have had my own specialized consulting business in addition to my long time corporate professional career which has always been in a client service related role. Aoife's service orientation and accessibility is amazing. She is easy to talk to, empathetic, and very well organized. I like the fact that in writing she recaps our conversations and the next steps I need to take. I think she brings a wealth of corporate knowledge and human resources experience to the table which to me, makes her a highly trusted advisor and thought partner. Aoife is supportive and dedicated to my success and is a source of inspiration when the going gets tough.

Working with Aoife has been such a wonderful experience. Her ability to keep me focused on the problem at hand was instrumental in helping me to gain insight and clarity into my situation. I would definitely recommend her as a coach to anyone needing to gain greater focus or a new perspective on business or personal matters.
Evelyn Robertson, B.C. Canon Company, Greenville, SC
I met Aoife at the global SHRM meetings. She stood out as a global, corporate leader who understood business strategy. When the opportunity arose to hire global HR and business experts we asked Aoife to consult with us on a global HRM project. She did an excellent job capturing the key elements of the HR leaders role in global multinationals. Her contributions were instrumental in creating the curriculum used to teach relationship and sales managers how to increase organizational revenues. Aoife has a wealth of information about human resources that will serve her well in corporate and consulting opportunities. We look forward to working with her in the future!

Aoife is an incredible resource, uniquely positioned to provide professional career development given her in-depth knowledge and experience within human resources across various industries and disciplines. I had the distinct pleasure of working with Aoife when I was looking to change professional industries. She provided me with career transition coaching, keeping me highly engaged and motivated during the process by helping me to develop strategic direction and execute on tactical plans. She is a keen listener and continually picked up on details I hadn’t yet considered. She optimistically delivered honest, constructive feedback, allowing me to continually challenge myself to be my personal best. Aoife is a trusted advisor and someone I will lean on throughout my career for key insights. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking to advance his or her career.
Private Client, Sales Executive, AT&T, Chicago, Illinois
When I came to Aoife for career guidance I was completely frustrated. I had sent out about 100 resumes, each accompanied by an artfully-crafted, personalized letter, and got almost no responses. I couldn’t understand it. I was confident I had an impressive resume chock-full of marketing, graphic design, and managerial experience spanning various industries, as well as entrepreneurial experience having run two successful businesses. It was difficult to leave anything off. In one quick assessment Aoife noted I had too much information and too much diversity. She looked at the totality of my experience and mapped out a direct route to reformat my accomplishments. Her strategic planning helped me to reorganize and refine my resume so that it presented a much clearer picture of who I was. Within a week of submitting this new version I got a flood of responses and ultimately secured a wonderful job. I will always be grateful for her keen ability to see through to the most important details and redirect my efforts toward success.
