I'm Tanya Semerad

When I was a lawyer, I barely had time for myself. I was overworked and overwhelmed, and despite warning signs, I "powered through" (and still worked on weekends). I developed an autoimmune disease. My hair was falling out, skin cracking and bleeding, and I looked and felt like the walking dead for about 18 months. It took the Global Financial Crisis and interesting office politics to have me discharged from my lawyerly duties (a.k.a. redundant). I started my life again, studying and founding a marketing agency for lawyers, then working my way up international businesses to head of department and managing bigger teams.

I didn't have a network or financial support, so constantly I'd ask myself, "Who do I need to become?", and acquired the knowledge and skill to get me there. Yes, there were some very late nights, early mornings, frustrating experience, and it took a while to create the changes - because yet again - I was doing it all by myself. I didn't know that professionals had access to high performance coaching that gave them a competitive advantage (and their life back!). So, I certified as a High Performance Coach in the US, and over the last 7 years have been the secret weapon for accelerating progress, impact, and positive change for executives, leaders, and their teams across various industries in the UK, Europe, Middle East, and US.

So, who do you need to become?

"You can read all those books and listen to podcasts to plan and energise your thoughts, but when it comes to seeing it through, you need to be accountable. Tanya makes it simple to build your routine in a way that gets you more productive outcomes. Even Warren Buffet needed a coach. It's the best investment."

Pratik Rawal,
Managing Partner

I can't recommend Tanya enough, her approach is professional yet personable and her sessions consistently offer great clarity and focus. I have already seen positive results and outcomes after only working with Tanya for a couple of weeks and I will continue to engage Tanya for many years to come due to the value her sessions offer. Look no further if you want to secure professional development for yourself or your team.”

Alistair Paine,
Business Development Manager

"It's very easy to start coasting and caught up in the day-to-day stuff. The coaching has helped me get very focused and make a few changes and tweaks. Really, it's only a small 1% or 2%, which then changed the whole direction. The coaching gave me the time to be able to step back, reflect, re-strategise, and bring more joy and meaning to my work.
