Tessa Marshall


Tessa combines commercial experience gained from having worked in large companies with the solution focus of evidence-based coaching skills and the deep human behaviour training from her counselling work. This has led to a very pragmatic, versatile and results-driven approach.

While Tessa has experience across diverse functions and industries, she specializes in Sales/Marketing driven clients - in particular Sales & Marketing Directors and their teams as well as Consumer Goods clients. Tessa thrives on maximising the engagement ‘sweet spot’ of productivity and performance.

Her personal experience of mergers, restructures and acquisitions had led to a passion for coaching executives to sustain high-performance teams through the inevitable change that is a part of everyday business and life in general.

Tessa has been the co-owner and builder of three successful businesses in Leadership Development, Career Coaching and HR Consulting. Over 14 years in Leadership Consulting and over 16 years working in sales and marketing roles translates to a strong pragmatic and commercial focus to her work. This includes:

  • Her own coaching business and regular trainer/speaker at Leadership Workshops on leading for results and taking teams to the next level.
  • Commercial roles with Marric, Mondo Search and HJB Group in executive recruitment and coaching/training executive recruiters
  • Early career at McDonalds and British Airways in sales/marketing management
  • In her spare time as a volunteer, works at Lifeline as a Supervisor, Trainer and Board Member.
  • Private practice working as a counsellor and career coach
