"I have just completed a year of coaching by Annelise Pesa. She has made me work very hard on a range of skills, understandings and behaviours and has not shied away from challenging me on my assumptions and beliefs. I think it has been a very good process that has changed the ways that I lead and manage."

James Pricing Regulation Lead, NHS


“Working with Seven Career Coaching and specifically with Annelise Pesa has been an absolute career (and life) changing case for me. Annelise has helped me realise what I am really passionate about and gain the necessary level of confidence and inspiration to make the transition, based on my skills and strengths. I would highly recommend Annelise Pesa as your next Exec Career Coach.”

“I really wanted some professional and expert guidance. Matching to a coach that had my industry specific knowledge as well as an understanding of the level of seniority I was at, really gave me confidence. I knew that SEVEN would offer me the coaches and the process that would give me the options and expertise I was looking for.”

Catherine Marketing Director, Graze


“The experience was excellent all round. I learned a lot about how to deal with various situations in a management capacity, how to best present myself and how to analyse myself. Higher levels of motivation. Better self-awareness. Increased circle of influence.”
