Doreen is a highly sought-after business growth expert, trainer, facilitator and executive coach with experience in a wide range of industries including automotive, hospitality, high street retail, TV broadcasting, brewery and pub chains, manufacturing and engineering.
Founder & Director, Formed In 2011
Her management career has spanned from line manager and general manager roles in the 1990’s through to account director for a large training organisation in 2001 and brand director for the Damon Hill Group up to mid-2004. Doreen’s dream was to create and run her own training and business consultancy, specialising in developing leaders and managers in various industries to become world-class leaders and deliver significantly improved profits with a focus on customer advocacy and loyalty.
In 2004 Anita Douglas joined Doreen as co-Director of the business and Leading Results Ltd was born. The focus remained on developing leaders, helping clients deliver against stretching financial objectives and world-class customer advocacy. Their reputation as a ‘go to’ organisational development company was spreading as was the span of industries they were supplying services to.
Doreen’s successes are many and varied. She has successfully spearheaded client projects which include: creating a unique and leading-edge executive coaching and leadership development programme for senior managers and directors in the automotive industry, an international programme of leadership development for senior managers in Dubai, as well as an executive coaching programme for two senior directors of a mainstream television channel.
She has also designed and delivered Regional Manager Development Centres for both a large corporate pub and restaurant chain and a similar programme for a high street coffee chain looking to benchmark their talent community of regional managers.
Doreen’s legacy seems to be in everyone who she has ever trained, developed or coached. You only have to glance at her LinkedIn ‘recommends’ to see the extent of her professional reach. Within the industries she serves, she is known, spoken about and recommended time and time and time again.
Her love and passion for ‘making a difference’ to the clients she works with shines through everything she does. She is credible both in depth and breadth of business commercial savviness and know-how. But more than this she is a fierce advocate for helping organisations improve their leadership capability at every level, even those who are not yet in leadership roles.
Doreen is an eloquent speaker and belongs to the Professional Speakers Academy, London. She has already dipped her toe into the world of writing when she wrote a book called: ‘Redundancy to Employment’ to help the myriad of people who lost their job in the recession of 2008. Her next literary challenge is to write a book on leadership.
