Well, quite simply because if you want to get stuff done, she’s done enough of it, studied even more of it, and experienced a heck of a lot!
Here’s what others have to say about Dawn….
Dawn is the ultimate people person, driven to succeed whilst demonstrating integrity at all times. Eager to help and support colleagues, customers, and clients I have no hesitation recommending Dawn and her company.

Basically I met Dawn back when I was still a teenager. I had aspirations of being a football journalist and had grand plans to travel the World. Dawn helped me believe in myself and what I was capable of, and I can now safely say that I am one of the most well-known football journalists in South Africa. I’d recommend her wholeheartedly!

I met Dawn through business while I was working for a charity that she kindly supported. She is passionate about her causes and will fight for what she believes in. Dawn has strong values and equally strong opinions. Dawn is a respected business woman in Sheffield and has extensive knowledge of the coaching and mentoring sector. She also writes and has published a book. She is certainly not scared of life and can take challenges head on! She is both a pleasure to know and work with.
