I am based in Johannesburg and have been coaching for more than 4 years within a large corporate organization
I have worked with many individuals from graduates to senior managers to overcome challenges/ hurdles over a relatively short period of time. I combine my almost 30 years of extensive corporate experience together with my coaching skills to help develop individuals to achieve higher performance levels.
I am passionate about Consciousness Coaching® which can open up massive opportunities for change. So – what would you desire to see written on your tombstone? How much is that worth to you? Imagine yourself reaching your full potential, climbing the ladder of success – unleashing your power. My job is to help you to see through the clouds and start climbing your ladder of potential – and maybe you get shaken up in the process and maybe we take one rung at a time or maybe you race to the top but can you imagine how you would feel if you reached the top having used all the steps of potential, power and possibility available to you to create the life you imagine for yourself….
I have 28 years’ experience in the Financial Services Industry during which time I have worked for all 4 of the major banks. My experience ranges spans many areas from the highly volatile Trading floors, the pressures of branch banking and the demanding world of corporate finance. I am known within the bank as the organizer and problem solver having assumed various difficult roles where I was required to evaluate the problem, devise and implement an action plan all within short turnaround times. I have extensive management experience and am familiar with employee relations/ disciplinary and CCMA procedures.
At both Nedbank and ABSA I have played key roles in employee wellness/mentoring programmes. During the last 7 years I have been actively involved in all aspects of the graduate programme within Nedbank from recruitment and selection to coach and mentor. I have been a coach within Nedbank for the last 4 years and whilst my passion is in coaching young people I have coached across many diverse levels within the bank.

“Lorna’s ability to drill down to the real issues makes her a truly remarkable coach, colleague and manager of people . She is exceptionally resourceful and helpful and I would recommend her in a position as a coach or financial manager to anyone without hesitation.” Robin D’Arcy-Donnelly, Regional Head: Corporate Property Finance Legal, Nedbank Limited
“I have had the pleasure of working and knowing Lorna for many years (since year 2002). Not only is she a real delight to work with, but she remains consistently professional, knowledgeable and a real expert in her field. Followed with her outstanding people management ability, Lorna makes for an ideal manager, leader, mentor and coach. And it is not often that one has such a great combination in one person, I talk with many years of placing various individuals in various roles. Karina Bognon, Executive Director, Strategic Personnel
“I worked with Lorna for a number of years at Nedbank. During that time I interacted with her both in her role as Finance Manager and as a member of the Nedbank Internal Coaching panel. In both roles I found Lorna to be passionate, practical and committed person who keeps her word. Lorna has an intuitive sense of what she can do practically to assist other people, whether that be in organizing charitable events, providing financial information or managing the administration of a busy office. Her organization skills are outstanding.” Penny Castle, Business Transformation Analyst, Nedbank
