About us


Kate Lidbetter is a longstanding business coach and consultant, having enhanced the career progression of all manner of people in a variety of sectors and organisations for over 25 years. She has worked with CEOs, Permanent Secretaries, Judges, Non-Execs and others across public and private sectors. Her earlier career included many years as a financial analyst, and later as a business consultant she formed a successful change–consulting practice for a leading IT services firm delivering on large–scale IT projects. Kate then founded a leadership development consultancy in 1999 where she was Finance Director and Head of Coaching. Her background means she is extremely skilled at both spotting personal strengths and articulating how those strengths can be powerfully justified across a variety of business environments.

Kate is a Chartered Associate of the Institute of Financial Services, has an MBA (Henley), is a Chartered Business Coach with the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches, an Associate member of the Association of Professional Executive Coaches and Supervisors, and is in the final stages of an MA in Professional Development (Business Coaching) from Middlesex University.

Kate became an independent in order to focus on what she loves doing most – coaching, and writing Magic CVs.



Fiona Godwin-Brown spent over twenty years working in the advertising and marketing industry, initially responsible for client service and latterly for strategic planning for a host of blue–chip client accounts including Nestle, M&G Investments, News International, AOL and NatWest. She therefore has experience and knowledge of a wide range of sectors, both B2B and consumer, while her skills enable her to extract and prioritise meaningful information and then to distill it into potent copy. Above all, she has a deep understanding of how to work with what you have to make it appealing and to make it sell.

Fiona has been a fellow of the Institute of Direct Marketing and a member of the Marketing Society. She has a degree in Psychology from the University of Bristol.

After her long and successful career as a main board director at a series of top London agencies, Fiona has relocated to Devon with her family and is using the skills honed on multi–million pound campaigns to write Magic CVs.
