Niamh Collins

Director of Programmes & Operations, DCU Ryan Academy

I have worked with Dervilla for a number of years, and continue to do so as she is always Prepared and Professional, in her training delivery.  Dervilla is the Lead Trainer on a number of the Academy's accelerator programmes and in particular on the Female Founder Accelerator Programme where she researches the profiles of the Founders and their company before meeting them and incorporates case studies similar to their businesses in her workshop delivery. Dervilla offers sound advice, templates and solutions that bring out the participants best potential. The feedback from Dervilla's workshops is always positive, and this is why Dervilla and I have a good working relationship. Dervilla is both trustworthy and reliable, I have never been let down by Dervilla and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

I have been using the services of Dervilla as an Executive Coach over the last number of years. Dervilla has added great value to all of my business activities and to me personally as a result of the quality coaching she has delivered. I find her extremely professional, experienced, personable, perceptive, empathetic and challenging. However, the most significant thing I can say is that I continue to utilise her services as a result of the quality of her work.
