We are delighted to advise Colette Barratt MSc has agreed to be our Guest Speaker for the evening.   Collette fulfilled a long-term ambition to join the army and attend the world renowned leadership course at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.   On Commissioning, working with the Royal Engineer Corp, brought about the challenges and opportunities she had hoped for as a young girl.

In 2003, her key role as a Troop Commander during a short deployment to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, saw her as the only female within the Squadron. Deployed to little more than a dust grassland, she worked with her Troop to deliver a construction project in an austere and dangerous environment.   Other deployments saw her working in Northern Afghanistan as a project leader and Southern Afghanistan as Squadron Second in Command.


Collette resigned her Commission in 2008 and since then has switched focus to the Learning and Development profession; her experiences include a role in Abu Dhabi, initially as a team leader in a remote Southern location.   Within a year, she was promoted to Regional Manager working with 40 staff to deliver a programme to 12 different locations across Abu Dhabi.  

Since returning to the UK, Collette has been working as a freelance coach, trainer and facilitator working with a rich and diverse client base.   She is passionate about coaching and has seen incredible change through the support and framework she can provide with insightful and transformational session.

This really is an event not to be missed.

Networking supper and presentation by Guest Speaker is all included in the price.
