“Jennifer was recommended to us following work she had supplied to other parts of the Pearson Group, namely executive coaching at Penguin and a Diversity Internship Program at Pearson.
Her programs were designed with much consultation with Financial Times and its leadership regarding the outcomes required. They were scheduled and delivered within a short time frame and the feedback we received from our full range of attendees was both positive and thought provoking.”
“My intention in working with Jennifer was to take a step into the unknown.”I wanted more – in my career, in my home life, in my fitness, in purpose and overall results.
What I got was incredibly refreshing. I have a sort of glow that I walk round with. I smile all the time. My employees have commented. My wife has certainly noticed. And more than all of that, I notice. I can’t put a figure on what Jennifer’s style of coaching has added. It’s just altogether lighter.”
Richard, CEO, London
“I was enthusiastic to have the opportunity to work with Jennifer on her Success with Soul 1-Day Intensive program. It was the first time I’d really put pen to paper and defined exactly what I want –both personally and professionally. From a career perspective it’s been very positive; helping me highlight obstacles within my current mind-set and giving me renewed clarity and confidence within the business to value and raise my contributions and creative ideas.
The 6 weeks follow-up coaching kept me on track as I integrated changes we talked about in the intensive. On the personal side I started to make changes almost immediately and continue to develop and take responsibility for that. I’ve started to get back on track with my fitness, and I’m finding ways to share career experiences with others, hopefully as a mentor. On a professional front I have clearer ideas on the next steps in my future career and define myself more by my skills and positive role within the company as opposed to the company defining me. Working with Jennifer has given me a new sense of direction and confidence in my skills and how best to apply them.”

“What I enjoy most about working with Jennifer, is she treats every assignment as a unique relationship, and ensures she understands all the dynamics involved before putting forward a proposed coaching schedule.
The successes Jennifer has had within the Time Warner family are extensive. Jennifer has worked with our most senior Execs, to our most challenging creatives, and make these transitions with ease.
Another core skill of Jennifer’s I was keen to mention, is her ability to run very successful ‘coaching intensives’.
“I was new to executive coaching but was keen to find an independent mentor to talk through ideas, my personal development, career goals and how to go about achieving them. The independence and confidentiality factors were key as I knew the coach would offer me objectivity hard to find in colleagues with vested interests.
Initially, Jennifer asked me to stretch myself in ways I had not tried before. I considered and discussed things more than I’d done in the past. The net result was a clearer vision of what I really wanted to achieve, a deeper understanding of what that entailed and how to go out and actually do it. I quickly discovered that the coach does not give you the answers but instead provides the framework and prompts for you to discover the answers yourself. Jennifer made me work out what had to be done to make those things happen which in turn had further positive knock on effects I simply couldn’t have known about.
My experience of working with Jennifer Broadley in the last 5 years is that she’s consistently good and offers a very high standard of coaching. She takes a forward thinking, long term view with executives and senior staff and gets consistently high standards of feedback from all people who have been involved in working with her.
She encourages free thinking, enabling people to find their own solutions to work-related issues as they progress. She also had a great range of tools and techniques that she’s able to share with top talent to help them find new ways of doing things.
Jennifer has worked predominantly with senior executives at the Telegraph. Her coaching has a real impact – empowering staff to choose to re-invest with the company, raising positivity, increasing focus and enabling promotions.
“Within 2 weeks of working with Jennifer, I’d made significant positive changes in all areas of my life. My thoughts had more clarity, I was setting weekly goals, my communication improved with colleagues.
I re-prioritised my social life, re-assessed my relationships, focused on my health and joined a gym. I cut down work-related late nights and replaced them with new hobbies and interests that had been on my list for years.
Three months down the line I’m 100% more focused and 10 times happier – career, work-life balance, everything!”
Rachael, Marketing Director, London
Executive Coaching with Jennifer was a first for me. I’d worked with the FT for over 10 years and my area of the group (Financial Times Business) had grown significantly in a very short time – as had my responsibilities and the numbers in my teams. My intention in working with a coach was to review my style of working; to communicate more effectively, to motivate my teams, and to ensure that I was working to my utmost in what was becoming an increasingly demanding role.
Working with Jennifer was refreshing. Over a period of 3-4 months we got clear on what I was already doing well, where I wanted to see improvement and what my strategies were for making that happen. Our conversations gave me perspective. They were business-focused, yet independent and confidential, so I really was able to get the widest perspective before coming back to a set of actions.
“My coaching conversation was very empowering. It felt very safe in a way that allowed me to open up about my dreams and aspirations and compare them to where I am today. I realize that I have a lot of work to do to create the life I want. I also realize that the experiences I have had the privilege of knowing has provided me with the tools I need to move forward.
I walked away with hope about my dreams. It was great to learn that I am not alone in being unsatisfied in where I am right now in my career. It was a pleasure realizing that coaching is non-judgmental.
I intellectually know that influencing my future is up to me. I have to conquer my fear to move forward. Thank you, Jen”
Tina, Lawyer, Massachusetts
” Jennifer … fantastic to talk with you in person! You are on your game and brilliant at your profession.
I have more clarity since speaking with you. Now is a time of acceptance and settling in – my new family, in my new home. And only then taking the steps towards my vision as intuition prompts – it’s all I wanted to experience.”
Audrey, Fitness Specialist, Marbella, Spain
“What I find so touching and heart warming is Jen’s absolute passion and excitement for people’s success. In talking with her as a business coach, I get the image that she really wants me to succeed in my art and creativity business and in following what is my heart’s desire and genuine talents.
Her voice is wonderfully warm and caring and gentle and yet firm and strong at the same time. One can’t help but to take her seriously and listen to her encouragements, and gems of insight and wisdom.”
Soheila, Artist, London
“You know sometimes when you know something has to change but someone else can show it to you in a different way? You brought my barriers out so that I could see them. You brought about great change. You equipped me to look forward.
I gained confidence and became a positive thinker. I’m truly grateful. I’m moving on and I’m no longer dependant. I’ve stretched way out of my comfort zone and it’s been amazing.”
“If you have that nagging feeling that something is not quite right, that what you want is just over the horizon but you don’t know how to reach it, time spent coaching with Jennifer is a Godsend. I was terrified when I fired off my first email to Jennifer, what would she say to me? Or worse still what would she make me change?
I needn’t have worried as she helped me to set goals that were realistic, achievable and taught me to think clearly. She equipped me with skills that I could pick up and run with and has left me with the deep belief that I can (and will) achieve my potential. Would I recommend Jennifer? Without a shadow of a doubt!”
