Anne Taylor is the Founder and Director of Directions Coaching Ltd.
Business is in Anne’s blood. She was raised in part by a businessman, attained a Business Degree in Canada, and worked for over 20 years at P&G and Nestlé across many countries. She is still exposed to business academia through her work at London Business School and IMD, and has coached 100’s, if not 1000’s, in business in the UK and abroad such as Lego, Deutsche Bank, L’Oréal and Ford among others.
While Anne was working in a Global Marketing role at Nestlé in Switzerland, both her parents died unexpectedly 22 weeks apart. This experience opened her eyes to the power and importance of being heart-smart (aware of emotions and their impact) and led her to retrain as an Executive Coach, one of a small number certified through ICF to the level of Professional Certified Coach. She believes that leaders need to be head-smart and heart- smart for continued success and satisfaction.
