“If you want to persuade, you must appeal to interest rather than intellect.”
The needs and interests of Elspeth’s clients are at the heart of all she does. Elspeth is a highly sought-after facilitator and executive coach /mentor with a proven track record. She believes strongly in the power of learning through self-realisation. Style flexibility is key to great facilitation and coaching, she is able to adapt hers to the specific needs of the individuals, teams and organisations she works with. Elspeth believes that “if you believe a thing to be real, it is real in its consequences” and is committed to inspiring others to be aspirational in their thinking and behaviour to achieve more of what they want.
Elspeth is a Barrister, who, before joining ENS specialised in intellectual property specifically TV, film and copyright law and has worked with international companies within this sector such as the BBC and IFPI. She then focused on professional development, primarily within the legal sector at global law firms, DLA Piper and Herbert Smith Freehills, then becoming the first Chambers Director at Enterprise Chambers, Lincoln’s Inn, London. This varied legal career has provided Elspeth with insights into persuasion and influencing at all levels which she is now able to bring to her workshops across a wide range of commercial fields.
Elspeth’s enthusiasm for empowering clients through her practical, ‘hands on’, highly interactive, inclusive and encouraging facilitation style enables her clients to come away with greater individual insights, understanding and self-awareness. Elspeth’s meticulous follow through and on-going reviews result in raised motivational levels with higher skills implementation being sustained. This enables her clients to realise their potential which then transcribes through into increased organisational turnover and profitability with measurable results and return on investment.
