North Wales Contact Tracing Service
'So many of the skills you shared with me I’ve been able to pass on to other colleagues. It’s been lovely to see them flourish.
You have really made me feel it’s ok to believe in myself.
I see those who I haven’t had great experiences with, in a different light with their own challenges.
I’ve learned not to carry the baggage about past issues and to not worry too much about the current ones I can’t have an impact on'.
Service Manager North Wales Contact Tracing Service

Sophie Howe Future Generations Commissioner for Wales
Women on Boards
'Marian brings a breadth of experience and business insight to ‘Women on Boards’ with high energy and a passion for creating opportunities for all'
Alison Thorne, trustee of Chware teg and Ambassador for WoB in Wales
'I worked with Marian over a 6 month period as I contemplated a significant change in the direction of my career.
Her emotional intelligence is superb, she flexed her style and approach artfully depending on how confident I happened to be feeling at the time of the session.
I gained much in terms of insight from working with Marian, but the real transformation came from her, and therefore my focus on action - what did I need to do, and how and when was I going to do it.
These are skills which will serve me well in my next chapter!'

From the beginning of our experience of working with Marian – from negotiating terms and conditions, the extensive possibilities our work and how we can extend our development – has been an extremely positive process.
We have received a high quality service, expertise, collaboration, flexibility and a very valuable professional relationship.
We continue to work with Marian and look forward to the next phase of our relationship with her. Her expert service was tailored to what was important to our organisation – which was valued beyond measure'.

'Working with Marian is a real pleasure. She adds value by offering clear ideas based on thoughtful assessment of the issue at hand.
She ensures there is a clear focus on what is right for the business, it’s customers and members of staff.'

Dyfed Powys Police
'I sought out Carys to undertake my coaching supervision. Carys has been invaluable in providing a sounding board and constructive challenge on the issues I brought to supervision. I was able to draw on Carys experience both as a practical coach and as a supervisor.
I was also able to use this session to “boardblast” some coaching ideas and to look at ways I could improve on my coaching delivery.'
Tracy Hawthorne Assistant Director, People Services Dyfed Powys Police
Dr Joanne Hudson
''Working with Marian is transformational, inspirational and an absolute joy.
It’s not easy to identify exactly how she does what she does (because of course then everyone would do it!) but she distils all her experience, wisdom, insight, compassion and expertise to know exactly what support and guidance you as an individual need.
I learnt so much about myself from working with Marian, and developed personal and practical skills that have already helped me to progress and move towards my potential.
I really can’t recommend her highly enough and promise that anyone who works with Marian certainly won’t regret it – enjoyable, enlightening and empowering'.
Dr. Joanne Hudson (CPsychol., AFBPS, FBASES, PGCE, SFHEA) Associate Professor.

'I had my coaching with Carys via phone contact which worked brilliantly.
It meant it could fit around my work, reduced time away from the office but still achieve so much. Carys is a superb coach. I achieved a lot while working with her.
She adapts her approach brilliantly to your needs and always backs up sessions with materials and resources.
If you are challenged with getting to sessions this is ideal. I have no hesitation in recommending Carys and this approach.'
Rachel Aneurin Bevan Health Board

'Brilliant! If you need a facilitator or Coach, I know first hand how helpful, inspiring and impressive Marian Evans can be.'
Rachel Moss Former Head of Communications, WAO
'I’ve had the privilege of working with Marian over a number of years.
She’s an outstanding coach whose naturally friendly and empathetic approach is equally balanced with a formidable business brain and proven business acumen.
I’d recommend Marian to anyone who wants to push themselves and their business to the next level and I’m proud to have Marian as one of our coaching associates.'
