You meet many people in the business world but only some leave their mark and one of them is Cathy. As a numbers person being an accountant and only having recently set up my own Accounting Firm Ekstra Accounting Solutions, one of the things I was struggling with was articulating the businesses core purpose. Before I met Cathy I had attempted several times to summarise it down into simple statements onto one page that I could refer back to time and time again. Cathy was introduced to me through a mutual friend and what a find. After only two sessions, I had a one page document that sums up my overall business marketing strategy. That document states my vision, mission, USP, philosopy, service offerings and ideal target audience. She was an absolute joy to work with, so relaxed, friendly but at the same time skillfully being able to help put into everything into context and define simple phrases what you previously did not realise you could do. I am so glad I was introduced to this wonderful lady. She has changed the course of my business. I therefore cannot recommend her highly enough.

Cathy Kelly Sweeney was the absolute BEST thing that happened to my business in 2020. She created a tailor-made brand-marketing and strategy coaching programme for me to support me on the relaunch of my signature programme, The Celtic Leader. Cathy has a rare skill set that combines marketing strategy, brand messaging, copywriting, coaching and clarity. She facilitated a deep space of listening to really understand my business and then used her expertise to support me to find and step into laser clarity on my vision, purpose and future direction.

Cathy brings a unique blend of commercial acumen and coaching skills that make her a huge asset to any business she partners with. Cathy has a proven track record of building outstanding team culture and developing leadership capabilities in those she works with. She has the ability to get to the roots of a business or people challenge and enable stakeholders to find breakthrough solutions.
Working with Cathy enabled me not only to understand myself better but has also allowed me to have open conversations about my career that I would not otherwise have been able to have. Cathy is empathetic but also practical – two invaluable skills in the coaching field. She continued to challenge my thinking in order to help me improve and become increasingly confident in my decision making and for this I am very thankful.
I worked with Cathy to develop my interview skills and particularly to help me present myself at senior management level. I found Cathy so easy to work with and she identified key areas for me to work on which I feel was pivotal during the interview process. I am pleased to say thanks to Cathy’s input, I was successful in attaining the post.
