What Do Our Clients Say?

“I have found my coaching sessions through SUMS incredibly beneficial during this time of extreme stress. My coach has helped me work through some sensitive issues and has enabled me to move forward with some long-standing and thorny issues within my institution. I have felt very supported throughout the experience and couldn’t recommend the experience or my coach highly enough for those in leadership positions looking to make a positive impact.”  

– Julie Kelly, Academic Registrar, University of Hertfordshire
