Executive Coaching

Space2BE have been providing a number of our leaders and managers with executive coaching since 2013. The measured outcomes have been excellent and without exception each coachee has found the experience to be positive, enlightening and aligned to our business. I would have no hesitation in recommending Space2BE for their professional executive coaching and leadership development services

My Executive Coaching experience opened my eyes and broadened my mind without being painful!

Head of Pinnacle Development Clear Channel UK

The coaching with Space2BE has allowed me to adopt new approaches to improving my own performance and that of my team. They have advised, supported, taught and encouraged me to use new techniques to influence others without distancing myself from the audience.

Senior DirectorGlobal Retailer

I worked with (the Space2BE coach) on my “Personal Impact” and “Communication Skills” and it was some of the best coaching I have had. He helped me look at presenting from a new perspective, balancing the “feeling” and the “meaning” within the communication. I have found the coaching highly effective at a personal and professional level.

DirectorIMS Health

The coaching has helped me gain a greater understanding of myself and the impact this has on others, at all levels of the business. This means I can now better adapt my behaviour to ensure that my ideas are acknowledged, understood and delivered

DirectorMultinational Retailer

She is an outstanding coach and has offered both challenge and support which has allowed me to benefit greatly from this activity. She is highly professional and extremely knowledgeable in linking theory to practice... and goes that extra mile in delivering an excellent product. I would unreservedly recommend her as a professional coach.

Following our coaching sessions I have given my best presentation ever and I have had fabulous feedback

Managing DirectorCredit Suisse

I am fifty six years old and I am finally confident following my coaching with you. Thank you

Managing Director International Publishing

I found coaching during my first 100 days in my new, more senior, position invaluable – during that particular period you feel under enormous pressure and having someone to speak to on a confidential basis, who can keep you ‘grounded’ is extremely helpful

Company SecretaryFTSE 100 business

The coaching provided by Space2BE was challenging and transformational and has changed my view of what coaching should be. I would sincerely recommend the team to anyone looking to improve themselves or their organisation


Further to my promotion, I'd like to say a big thank you for helping me along the way during this journey. I looked back a lot at our coaching sessions and they genuinely affected how I think, conducted myself and enhanced my general self-awareness. I'm now looking forward to the new role and the very different skills that I'll need to put into practice. I'm really looking forward to the new challenge


I’ve really enjoyed working with (Space2BE coach), challenging yourself is not an easy task but she made me feel at ease and we worked at a pace and to a programme which she constantly evolved to reflect my needs. As a director and leader of a large team, it is has been so important for me to take the time to assess my leadership style. Working with this coach has not only given me a very structured ‘sense check’ and industry benchmarking of my own style, direction and framework to make the next step, but also a number very valuable additions to my leadership and influencing ‘tool kit’....There is no doubt the time I have spent with her has added great value to me as a leader and has given me a clear vision of how I can progress in achieving my professional aspirations. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Space2BE to anyone looking to become their ‘best leader’.

Senior DirectorLuxury Retailer

My coaching experience with Space2Be has been wholly positive, I now feel more confident in both myself, my role and how I am perceived within my role. Going into new situations I feel I can draw upon many learnings from the Space2Be coaching experience.

Leadership Development

After the coaching for performance training workshop I am more conscious of how my behaviours can impact on my relationships with others. I hope to be able to use this knowledge in a positive way to benefit both the team and myself.

The course instructor was very engaging and had great knowledge of our business considering they were an external provider. This meant attendees were interested in the content and it was relatable…


This was the best training programme I’ve ever been on – I can certainly say my influencing skills are now significantly improved

The Mastering Time programme has been extremely well received and surpassed delegates expectations. The results showed that most achieved between a 5% and 15% improvement in productivity, and these results have inspired us to roll-out the programme to our other divisions

Training ManagerGreen King

A very useful programme and a very engaging facilitator!

The (influencing with impact) workshop was great. It helped me with how I approach others, looking at the impact of how this would be received and adjusting my style to the audience.

High Performing Teams

The Directors are finally working on a common agenda and meeting shared targets resulting in enhanced personal bonuses and a request from group to find out how we managed to turn this around. Mindsets have shifted certainly and even behaviourally, some of the Directors are co-coaching each other. You also personally gave me the confidence to make more of a stand with them. You were certainly significant in our lives.

Senior DirectorSerco Plc.

Low expectations and high apprehensions (due to the challenges we faced) were reversed over the course of the two days. Delighted to be part of the team and looking forward to dealing with the challenges ahead.

HR DirectorKingfisher Plc.

We achieved a real clarity of purpose around the practical problem that we were addressing during this team build … the day was further enhanced by the positive energy and enthusiasm of our facilitator. It couldn’t be improved. One of the best team training days I have ever been to.

UK Group Tax Director Diageo Plc.

We have worked closely with your team over the past twelve months on a number of related issues around team strategies, building team capacity and change management. Our team has certainly benefitted from your input and is now working in a smarter more focused way delivering bottom line value to our organization.

Assistant DirectorLocal Authority

Thanks for really getting the most out of the group. The structure of the day was excellent and the energy and fun that you brought to the session really helped us create a plan which now represents the backbone of what we do and how we operate as a team

Operations DirectorGreen King

Reflecting on how far we have come as a leadership team since the work you did with us on the two day off-site I realize just how instrumental you were to the huge positive strides we have made. The Directors are now working well together and working towards common goals and even use some of your stories and language in meetings as reminders to us all about our ways of working. Thank you.

We have hired them 3 times during the last 2 years and been highly impressed with the quality of their work… they delivered two great programmes ‘sales’ and ‘image and impact’ and more recently have helped us with our employer branding and recruitment strategy. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Head of TalentFTSE 100

We hired Space2BE to help us write a talent strategy with the underpinning processes to embed internally. During the project, the scope increased to a “People & Talent Strategy” which was very well delivered. They were engaging, knowledgeable and supportive. We have now successfully embedded this across our business and would have no hesitation in recommending Space2BE for their excellent services.

Cultural Change

Karen has been working with the Dogs for Good management team over the past year, supporting the development of coaching skills through training and one-to-one sessions. Karen is an excellent communicator with the capacity to take people on a skills development journey in a thought-provoking way but non-threatening way. We are clear about the management culture we want to create at Dogs for Good, but arriving at our destination takes significant training and support. Karen and her associates have the trust of the whole team and as a result, we are making great progress towards our goal. I would highly recommend Karen and her team of associates – they will add-value to your organisation and deliver great outcomes.

Coach the Coach

The day was hard work but so valuable in terms of gaining the confidence to have a go at those difficult conversations. Elizabeth and Sam were fantastic - friendly yet professional and instantly put me at ease.



We have worked with Karen Griffin for over a year, initially to help develop, facilitate and capture our organisation’s 5 year strategic plan. Karen has been focused, professional and great fun throughout the whole process - all our teams have enjoyed working with her. I doubt you will find someone more enthusiastic or energetic than Karen - she brings her A-game to every session, and I believe we received great value for money and an excellent result.

Chief ExecutiveHearing Dogs for Deaf People

The strategy workshop was engaging, impactful and thought provoking - it was presented well and allowed for healthy debate with peers from across the business.

Operations DirectorRamsdens Plc

The day started with the feeling like a local Derby in football - very much 'them and us’, however, by the end of the day we all had the feeling that there was an ‘US’ and we were ‘one team'.

ManagerAmey Plc.

Karen provided excellent support to help diagnose and define our Learning & Development strategy and made recommendations to address the needs. Her style fits well with our culture, her strong listening and problem solving skills were a real support to me personally. Karen is always fun to work with, which is also really important.

People Director Fortnum & Mason

Karen's professional but friendly style was very effective in engaging our trustees on this strategy event. An effective facilitator, she kept the pace up at all times and also ensured that every voice was heard.
