Lesley Petersen

Mentoring Specialist

I help organisations grow their business through investing in their people and I help people invest in themselves through coaching and mentoring.

* Businesses succeed and grow by retaining their staff, building effective teams, developing leaders, and having good systems in place to support and develop their people. I help organisations achieve this through my mentoring training and programmes.

* People achieve their goals and dreams by making deliberate decisions and having a clear intent about what they want and who they want to be. Through my coaching and mentoring, I help you get there.
