Now here's the bio!
Wendy spent 30 years at 'the coal face' as PA working for executives at all levels, starting out as a Girl Friday working for McCann Erickson Advertising Agency in London at the age of 19.
Since then she's workd in a variety of industries, including Insurance, Education, Commodities Trading, IT and Law. For 10 of those years Wendy was a summer sports coach taking a succession of Rounders teams to glory. Her teams consistently did well, which convinced her that she had a gift for getting the very best out of other people. She was introduced to self development nearly 20 years ago which helped her overcome a series of personal setbacks.
Wendy's coaching skills were forged at the tender age of 10 whilst working for her dad in London during the summer holidays. Being in the 'eye of the storm' Wendy and her four sisters were given a unique insight the impact running a business had on her father - both good and bad.
At school Wendy was a gifted athlete which she used to overcome serious behavioural and academic challenges as a child

Her Great Grandfather William Worboys spent most of his career as a Train Driver on the Flying Scotsman, and on 30th November 1934 he took this historic train into the record books, when it became first steam train ever to travel at over 100 mph
Her Grandfather Captain Harold Quick skippered the Marconi Research Vessel the Elettra II on it's voyages around the North Sea during the 1960's. Both the Elettra I and Elettra II yachts were used as test beds and demonstrations for equipment designed by MWT/Marconi Communications Marine Development Group.
