Nadine Powrie

Transformation Consultant

What people say

I had the pleasure of working with Nadine as she consulted at the national level developing educational policy over a number of years. Nadine brings a wealth of experience, tempered with a coolness of head that disarms the most difficult of problems. Her natural ability to get the best from people always leaves your team much improved. She is an amazing communicator with real presence who is thought provoking and inspiring to be around. Nadine always sees the bigger picture without neglecting the needs of individuals. Rarely will you work with a more consummate professional or be more eloquently led.
Nicholas Sherriff, Director Office of Education Standards at Cayman Islands
Nadine has been an absolutely amazing coach for my personal development in the workplace. She has given me sterling advice on topics such as interview skills and communication change management. Nadine has provided excellent insight on the importance of positive language and communication. Nadine helped me perform at my best in interview practice, which then led to a promotion. Thank you so much Nadine!

“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” Nadine as a coach, helped me revisit some of my ingrained beliefs while boosting my self-confidence. Through our conversations, she has opened my mind to transformation levers I would have not actioned without her insights. This had a big positive impact not only on myself but also on my line manager, my teams and ultimately on the whole company.
