Senior Vice President People, 2U

Abby got involved with our organisation in 2016 when we started working on our first leadership development programme. As a startup, we often looked to partner with strong external experts to help us develop our business into the successful online education provider it is today. We looked to bring excellence through enabling real people connections instead of following stock standard approaches when it came to investing in our most valuable asset, our people. And Abby helped in exactly doing that. Identifying skills people already possessed but needed to work with a coach to understand how to unearth and apply them whether in their professional or personal lives. In 2020, a particularly difficult year for everyone across the globe as we faced the beginning of the global coronavirus pandemic, Abby coached me personally. I have had executive coaching before, but Abby's approach is very different to what I have experienced before. She doesn't shy away from the harder conversations – things that may be blocking you from understanding your blind spots and how to manage them better. Abby was a source of consistent support throughout 2020, a clear sounding board and a trusted partner in navigating complex relational issues within the workplace and outside of the workplace. I will always appreciate the time I had with Abby and I will highly recommend her as an executive coach."
