Meet Gillian

For those of you who don’t know me yet…

I’ve built an on-line coaching and consulting business so that I can earn an income wherever I am in the world. I’ve lived in Canada for more than a decade but since my dad died 5 years ago I spend chunks of time each year with my lovely mum in the UK.

I’m really fortunate in that I have a strong international business background in finance, mergers and acquisitions, strategic reviews, marketing and business consulting. This has made it easier for me to evaluate my own business ideas and launch those that have a high chance of success – but it also means that I can guide you and ensure that your pathway to success is less fraught.

I still do a fair amount of off-line work mainly for clients in Montreal and the UK – feasibility studies, market studies, guidance on business plans, developing marketing strategies. I give talks on social media and help clients understand and harness the power of social media in their businesses whether it’s to communicate with customers, promote their brand and products or use social media as a research tool.

I teach on the MBA programs at various universities: Sector Analysis at HEC Montréal, one of North America’s top business school, and Strategic Communications at Webster University in Holland. Next year I’ll also be teaching Business Strategy at the University of New York in Prague.  I really love teaching – it’s not well paid at all but it enables me to share my business knowledge and experience with people who hopefully will go out and make a difference in the world.

My work has taken me all over the world – Australia, South East Asia, the Middle East, Africa, North America and Europe. I’ve worked in France and Germany for extended periods and since 1999 have lived mainly in Canada. I love discovering how other people live and learning about their daily lives and their challenges.

As far as me the non-work person is concerned…..well if you’re curious click here !
