  1. Jo-Ann Passmore; Professor; UCT (verified owner)

    Pippa had a refreshing holistic approach to each coaching session, with innovative ways to help me understand my team, their dynamics and ways to lead more effectively. Despite my environment being atypical/academic rather than executive, Pippa provided key insight into how to leverage the best of both worlds and supported new ways of thinking to engage with complex executive leadership scenarios that I could easily implement.

  2. Jonno Proudfoot; CEO; Real Meal Revolution (verified owner)

    Pippa’s superpower is her ability to show up at sessions with so much love and warmth, while we sit together at the coal face and get our hands dirty with the ‘work’.

  3. Cate Band; Head of People; Prodigy Finance (verified owner)

    Pippa consistently receives exceptional feedback from those she coaches in all 3 global organisations I have worked at. She works at a transformational, versus transactional level, and candidates report significant shifts in how they think and experience things in both their personal and professional lives.
