Director, Alchemy Consultants London
Cath is lucky enough to divide her time between things that she finds interesting, important and enjoyable, as Director of her own company Alchemy, and Partner at The Chemistry Group she works with C-Suite clients to give them and their teams the opportunity to be brilliant at work and to help to grow high performing teams. She is also the Chair of the Early Careers Foundation, a social mobility charity working to reduce the impacts of socioeconomic inequality on disadvantaged young people in the UK and NED of The Early Careers Company, a consulting and talent business in the early careers space (and sole funder of the Early Careers Foundation). Cath has spent her career dedicated to all things ‘people’, starting off in Recruitment and HR and then moving into consultancy at The Chemistry Group and now focusing on individual coaching. She has had the opportunity to watch, advise and learn from the directors and board members she is lucky enough to work with, including the BBC, Just Eat Takeaway.com, Principality Building Society, the Co-Op and many others. At home, Cath has two adopted sons, one with brain damage that leads to behavioural and learning disabilities. This has given her the chance to learn about neurodiversity and social opportunities first-hand, and has led to a strong desire to give as much as possible to those who need a little more support to get their opportunity to succeed.
