Martha Simpson

Martha Simpson

Martha is a qualified Executive Coach, Leadership and HR Specialist, and a certified Workplace and Employment Mediator. She is also an accredited NLP Practitioner. She is the founder of Martha Simpson Coaching and works with leaders or those who aspire to be leaders across a range of sectors from large organisations to small businesses.

She has a special interest in women which stems from having been a female CEO of a national organisation whilst still in her thirties, and from working with a range of women led organisations.

Martha is passionate about coaching and has studied the impact of coaching at Masters Degree level. Her studies examined the great volume of literature on women, and the growing volume of literature on coaching.

Her research looked at whether or not coaching had anything to offer women who, 30 years after the Equal Pay Act, are still a minority on Boards and in senior roles, and who when they achieve top dog status frequently fall (or climb down) from the top of the tree.

Martha is also a Director of Harvey McMillan Associates Ltd an HR Consultancy offering a range of Leadership and HR services to a diverse client group.

Her interest in women is rather ironic, given she grew up not just with brothers, but in a village where she had six boys in the house next door and was the single female member of the village football team.
