She holds a degree in Biochemistry from Southampton University and trained at London Business School in business management.

As a leadership and business coach, Angela is a firm believer that leadership is not only having a brilliant business head.

Her programmes teach leaders to identify their own strengths and motivators and to use this knowledge to hone their skills to achieve maximum success with their teams.
