About Us

Jayne McPhillimy

Helping people feel confident, develop new skills, gain new experience, achieve their personal goals and in many cases exceeded their own expectations is behind all the work that I do.

As coaching became a larger part of my life, I wanted to understand more about the theories underpinning my practice so I studied to gain formal Coaching qualifications. My experience and qualifications led to opportunities to coach Senior Leaders and Executives in successfully working through their own challenges, gaining new insight, thinking creatively and becoming more strategic in their focus.

At Jem Associates we have a passion for Coaching and Leadership Development,  and helping people develop is what we love to do, whether that’s through individual or group coaching, team development or leadership training.

We set up Jem Associates so that  we could support people in their personal development, help them focus on what they want to achieve and work out how they can get there.

We know that every person and every business we work with is unique and so we develop bespoke solutions to suit each situation.

We’re always happy to talk about coaching and development.

Helping to develop amazing people & brilliant businesses is a fantastic way to spend your day and I feel especially privileged to be able to spend my time doing exactly this. Whether acting as a mentor, a trainer or in a consultancy role, working with people and businesses who are striving to grow and achieve their goals is both challenging and rewarding. I have a great job!

Having worked extensively within both commercial and educational environments I have a raft of tried and trusted strategies and techniques that I am fortunate to be able to share with senior business leaders and their employees across a wide range of business and industry sectors.

Results driven, and with a keen focus on continuous improvement and an eye on the bottom line I believe I can add value in a wide range of business environments.

At Jem Associates we are all about building amazing people & brilliant businesses. Jem Associates always looks to exceed the expectations of our clients, we love what we do.
