With a professional background of over fifteen years in the publishing industry, coaching some of the world’s leading business and management thinkers to communicate their ideas and polish their writing, Liz Gooster now has a thriving portfolio career. As a partner in executive coaching practice The Alliance, consultant to selected business authors and Meyler Campbell Faculty member and Tutor, Liz brings a powerful combination of creativity and commerciality, alongside deep insights into what makes people tick and what will help them boost their performance and change for the better.
After achieving a first from Cambridge University, Liz went on to gain a PhD before building up a career in the publishing industry. While working in her dream job as Publisher for the Financial Times list at Pearson, Liz worked on the FT Guide to Business Coaching with Anne Scoular – igniting a new-found love for change and prompting an eventual move into the portfolio career lifestyle. She took a flexible role as Editor-at-Large for independent publisher Kogan Page before taking the final plunge into full-time consultancy.
For Liz coaching equips individuals and teams to step up to their role and beyond, enabling people to boost their performance by working in a way that is aligned with their own strengths, purpose and values, as well as those of their organisation. Her particular areas of expertise include helping people to: clarify, articulate and communicate their ideas, messages and strategy; build their confidence, presence and impact; and harness the power of change, using it as a means to flourish and thrive, not just survive.
