What Deirdre's Clients say ...

Deirdre and I have been working together for just over 10 months now. I was a little nervous at first as our working relationship started in April when everyone was on lockdown. However, doing these sessions virtually did not affect the impact at all. Deirdre has certainly taken me on a journey with her coaching and advice, I have become a more considerate and thoughtful leader. What I love most about her is she has a style that helps you find your own solution. In the past, I have had coaches who told instead of taught. Her no-nonsense approach works for us both and I am looking forward to working with her in the future to further improve my skills.

Lesley Ronaldson

Sales Director

We were delighted and blown away by the positive impact Deirdre McGinn had on our participants when she was a guest speaker as part of our Leadership Course. Deirdre was so inspiring and uplifting and gave invaluable information on leadership, taking the lead with confidence and creating a virtual presence. She not only gave expert advice but mixed it in with personal stories which made it more relatable and ultimately enjoyable. We could not recommend her more; she is simply outstanding at what she does.

Deirdre is one of those people, where once you meet them, you realize, in minutes, how truly valuable they are going to be to you. She is not only an incredible coach & mentor, but also has the credentials & vast experience to back it up. I have been working with Deirdre for over a year now & can confidently say the impact has been profound on a personal and professional level. I am profoundly grateful for her coaching & guidance. I look forward to continuing to work together.

Rachel Cleary


Deirdre is one of the most effective coaches and agents of change I have encountered in my career to date. Her commitment to enable meaningful discussions and uncover deep insights is an invaluable support when it comes to truly finding the right path forward; and she brings the perfect balance of genuine care and empathy coupled with honest, direct and challenging questions. A fantastic listener, Deidre brings a focus to every session that never fails to capture what is said and unsaid.Highly recommend Deirdre for anyone who is looking to truly step change their career and reach their full potential and goals


EMEA Marketing Manager

Deirdre joined us a guest on our Podcast to talk about the importance of virtual presence and how to build relationships in a digital world. We saw a lot of value in the framework she has developed, especially now that business cannot be done face to face and most of our team members are working remotely. We have hired her to run a companywide workshop, where she shared best practices of virtual presence, the important of deepening virtual relationships and how to build trust in a digital world. Our 150+ team members from our UK & US offices managed to get great actionable insights from the webinar and have been successfully applying the framework in their day-to-day.

Catarina Hoch

VP Global Marketing

Deirdre led our Team Building Event in December. Her energy, expertise and knowledge ensured the day was not only full of great learning but brought the team together in a fun and highly motivated way. After a difficult year for everyone, this is exactly what was needed to ensure a strong end to 2020 and a great start to 2021. We are looking forward to continuing this work with Deirdre in 2021.
