Bernie is an experienced Executive Coach and Trainer with a background in theatre spanning 20+ years as an actor, director, voice coach and corporate role-player. As a consultant, she coaches individuals and teams to C-suite level across a wide range of industries from professional services to manufacturing in career planning, leadership development, assessment and career transition. She facilitates workshops on Professional Presence and Effective Communication and trains teams and individuals in Performance Management and Interview Skills.
Having successfully helped actors perfect the required accents for theatre productions, she was approached to design and deliver Diction Coaching for non-native English speakers, where she ‘reverse-engineered’ the techniques actors use to master accents. Her passion for this area has grown, working with individuals from across Europe and beyond, helping them identify and improve their pronunciation of English, and understand Hiberno-English (the version of English spoken in Ireland).
As an empathic and collaborative coach, Bernie is passionate about helping individuals recognise their potential, overcome self-limiting beliefs, and build self-confidence in their careers and lives.
