Why I do this work
I'm fortunate - I love the work I do and aim to share that enjoyment when I work with others. For me it's a privilege to use my coaching and training skills to help others realise their potential. I enjoy the challenges and rewards that working with both groups and individuals give to me. My own personal development journey has been a great motivator and continues everyday.

I am passionate about making a difference in life and giving people the opportunity to make the most of their skills and talents. I value integrity in all aspects of my life, and aim to reflect this in the excellent professional relationships I have developed with many of my clients.

I've been a trainer in personal and professional development for most of my working life. Having been a manager and senior lecturer, I established my own training business in 1995 and I've had some great opportunities to work with people across all sectors - public, private and voluntary. I have helped teams and individuals with particular projects - such as preparing a presentation/event or identifying team objectives/mission. In addition, I have worked with many organisations and groups over a prolonged period of time, designing and delivering a variety of training and coaching solutions

I am a Master Practitioner in NLP and an accredited NLP coach. I have trained hundreds of women through the award winning Springboard programme as a licensed Springboard trainer for almost 10 years. I am also an accredited assertiveness trainer.

'Chris has been working for the Harrow Council as a 'Springboard' consultant for the last seven years. 'Springboard' has been a large success in Harrow, the workshops are kept informal and friendly, and supportive, this encourages delegates to have self-confidence, motivation and develop a positive attitude. This is all due to Chris's skills and professionalism.'
Aileen Beaumont Training Officer, Harrow Council

'Chris Cross has worked with Brunel University since early 2003 during which time she has completely inspired and motivated over 90 women who attended the Springboard Programme. The key to the success of Springboard has clearly been a result of Chris Cross's excellent interpersonal skills, professionalism and drive to achieve. The women have become much more assertive, confident and motivated in their work and personal lives due to Chris's hard work and efforts. It is a pleasure working with Chris and we look forward to continued projects with arc-en-ciel in the future.'
Linda Attram Diversity Development Officer Brunel University
