Success stories Nicolette Hulme

Brand Manager

Tell us about your role.

I manage all brand and marketing activities in New Zealand for a global air conditioning manufacturer. My role requires me to develop marketing campaigns and brand strategies while managing all digital platforms including websites and social media.

What is 1-1 coaching like?

The coaching sessions helped me to cope in very stressful situations. It gave me the needed tools and communication capabilities to respond and manage difficult tasks. I won't say that the challenges have been resolved but I am most definitely less affected emotionally.

What did you get out of the program?

I developed not only as a person but as a manager. I have become more assertive and confident in my decision making.

What advice would you give to someone starting out with coaching?

Trust your couch. That to me is the most difficult thing to do - to trust a stranger. But it was great to have that support structure and discuss in honesty what I am experiencing without being judged.
