Hi, I'm Amy,
Founder of Megawatt Coaching. I specialise in coaching and mentoring those from a marketing background who are ready to overhaul their career and walk into their ideal future, whether that's a new role, a promotion, a solo venture or a change of pace.
Having worked in comms for ten years, in both an agency and freelance capacity, I know it can be hard to find the time to take a step back and think about where you want to go with your career.
But this stuff is too important to be left unexplored. The sooner you start to think about your own ambitions, what motivates you and how you can do more of what you love (and leave the dull bits behind), the happier you’ll be and the brighter you’ll shine in your career.
The Megawatt approach
Results-focused: A lot of coaches will tell you that you hold all the answers, and I agree this is an important principle of coaching, but without guidance and relevant suggestions it can take a long time to figure out what you want. My coaching is action-oriented and results-focused, designed to fast-track you onto your dream career path within just a few months.
Purpose-driven: Comms and marketing people have historically been tarred with the brush of being inauthentic or "fluffy" but in today’s industry they need to be confident, credible and committed to their own values. I have the tools, experience and passion to help you uncover your values and purpose and live up to your full potential.
Industry expertise: I’ve worked in the comms world for over ten years so you won’t need to explain to me what your role involves or what it’s like to work in a high-pressure, fast-paced environment. I get it. I've been freelancing in the space for the last three years so I know what it takes to fly solo too.
Coaching anywhere in the world: It doesn't matter where you are based. I work remotely and run sessions over the phone and on Skype.
Championing you: I only work with marketing professionals because they are among the smartest, most energised and talented people out there and I believe in their potential to achieve more. I love seeing their creativity, skills, intelligence and ambition come to the fore.

Work with me if:
You’re not feeling fulfilled by your career and you’d like to find a stronger sense of purpose within it
You are feeling overwhelmed by the day-to-day pressures of work
You want to figure out your career goals for the next 5 years and start working towards them
It feels like you're treading water and it's time to get promoted or find your dream job
You're ready to make the move to working for yourself
You already work for yourself but are struggling with the challenges of freelancing
Don’t work with me if:
You are happy with your career direction and on-track for your 5-year career plan
You see your work as solely a way to make money and not a way to fulfil yourself
You want a "fixer" who will tell you all the answers, rather than supporting you to find them
You'd rather the company you work for decides your path than take responsibility for it
You genuinely are too busy to commit to two hours of self-development a week
From comms agency director, to freelancer working from the South of France, to career coach for marketers. This is my story.
