Comma Partners were an obvious choice when I was looking for coaching. They combine detailed industry understanding with a book of experienced coaches, who also offer a range of value add. I was offered a closely matched shortlist and supported to make a final choice. I believe that everyone can benefit from coaching at any career level and would particularly recommend Comma Partners for change and IC professionals interested in professional or personal discovery.
Debbie shared and helped me choose from a range of tools and frameworks that were appropriate to my problems. We broke down seemingly complicated scenarios into actionable plans and milestones. Most importantly she pushed continuously for reflection, self-awareness, rationality, conclusions and follow through. See Debbie’s bio.
Helen is warm but candid and laser-like in her ability to get straight to the heart of the issue. She is highly knowledgeable and professional whilst remaining human and empathetic.

Working with Olivia brought me real clarity. She pushed me – gently but firmly – to take my thinking to a higher and more strategic level. See Olivia’s bio.
I have found working with Karen a refreshing and enriching experience. She has fast tracked my thinking about how I interact with my teams and colleagues, helping me find solutions far more quickly and effectively. Karen is warm, friendly and funny but is not afraid to ‘call it out’ when she suspects I’m not being honest with myself or if I’ve got myself into an entrenched position on an issue or a particular relationship. See Karen’s bio.
Philip creates an excellent environment for coaching which has enabled me to be open and share my experiences. Philip has coached me to examine situations from an alternative perspective, which has helped me to make mature and balanced decisions. Consequently I am able to be far more self-sufficient and apply what I have learnt on a daily basis. See Philip’s bio.
Catherine was key in driving all key aspects of our change agenda at M&S in the International Retail team. She led the much needed cultural change, developed and coached members of the team with special reference to the newer and more experienced members. She led with readily accepted changes in shared values, behaviours and processes. Catherine effectively and firmly kept the team on track. The International team was transformed and within the company changed from a backwater in the business to the most progressive and highly respected. Catherine’s role in this cannot be understated.
