Change in Action was established by Debbie Standish in 2001 out of a passionate belief that effective communication can transform business performance and that any organisation can only develop through its people.

Debbie specialises in executive coaching and mentoring, employee engagement and change management. Her breadth of business experience and coaching expertise enable her to enhance leadership capability and impact whilst understanding the demands of the commercial and organisational environment.

Her coaching clients describe her style as direct, challenging, empathetic and intuitive – she focuses on goals and delivers results.

Debbie brought structure, expertise, creativity and focus to the process. Her direct, penetrating and therapeutic style forced me to really analyse my personal and professional circumstances to the point that I could make a clear and unambiguous decision about my future. Thanks to Debbie’s work I have the confidence to pursue my goals. I would absolutely recommend her.

Debbie’s own style was organised and focussed, whilst at the same time being flexible and versatile. Debbie was always an excellent listener and never implied judgement or criticism. More often than not, I found the sessions almost “therapeutic”!
