I coach people to make the smartest moves, either within their organisation or outside it.

My clients are smart, ambitious professionals, often at critical decision points of their careers and perhaps working at or aiming for Board level.

I have supported individuals across functions and professions, from within the UK or moving here from mainland Europe, the US or Australasia. My client list includes: the Equity Charitable Trust, Goodyear Dunlop Tyres, the Royal Brompton Hospital, Reckitt Benkiser, the School for Creative Start-ups, The City UK, Veolia, the House of Commons, Rexam Plc, Macmillan Publishing, Westminster Mind, the Royal College of Art, St. Gobain and Hiscox.

So, if it is time to figure out your next smart move – or if you want to put some direction into your team’s careers — please call me on 0203 287 9505 or email

I just wanted to drop you a short note to update you and also to thank you, career definitely still in ascendancy. I have been successful in securing an MD role of a £140M turnover company that is part of a £2.2bn t/o group.The reason for thanks is that they wanted a turn round specialist and you may remember that that is how you articulated my skill set. It is initially for 6 months but that will then lead on to other opportunities I'm sure. Many thanks and kind regards.


I worked with Zena when I was looking for a new senior role. She quickly uncovered what was important to me in my next role, taking into consideration my motivations, abilities and interests. With that understanding, she worked with me to sharpen my CV and social media profile, marketing me in a very focused way, which resulted in more and higher quality opportunities presenting themselves. She was able to provide access to her network of head-hunters which increased my visibility in the market. As a result of Zena’s help and encouragement, I was offered a number of great roles within a couple of months. I am very happy to recommend Zena as an executive career coach.

Steven Woods, Senior Director, Price Waterhouse Coopers.

This is a highly competitive job market and organisations expect senior candidates to have first class career management skills. For instance - evidence of sensible decision making, a focused career plan, an achievement-orientated CV and well-mastered interview techniques. It pays to invest in an impartial, expert perspective to cultivate these and that's why we recommend Second Careers.

David Goldstone, Osprey Clarke, Executive Search Consultants.

I relocated to London after a long career with SFR, France's second largest telco. I was looking for another senior marketing position and needed support to understand the UK market. I was recommended to Zena by one of my headhunter contacts. Zena supported me every step of the way, from rewriting my CV right through to the negotiation of my new contract.
