As the content expert in the field of coaching both within and outside CCL, she led and oversaw the development of the coaching portfolio and had overall responsibility for high quality and consistency standards of capability across countries and clients supervising a group of 150 coaches.
In May 2015, Florence was promoted to Practice Leader for Senior Teams and Organizations Transformation where she will apply her corporate and development experience to the design and delivery of leadership and culture transformation programs that focus on team and organizational learning and performance.
