Take a look at what my clients have to say

I’ve recently completed a course of coaching with Hil – and wow! what a life changing experience that has been! After years of being dragged down by unhelpful feelings and self-doubt, Hil has helped me to feel positive, confident and excited for the future. Every session working with Hil was a highlight of the week, and her positive energy and enthusiasm created the perfect coaching environment. I would recommend Hil to anyone looking for an exciting and stimulating work reboot

Jo Rimmer

Operations Director, Warranty Admin Ltd

Hil has provided me with a chance to look at the development of the Charity alongside my own personal development as Chair of LPCF, in ways that only she could.

She has inspired me to think differently about my beliefs and values and has given me more confidence and insight into the decisions I make. I have therefore been able to implement some of the strategies I have learnt into running the Charity.

Her fun, light, creative approach makes these sessions memorable and enjoyable.

Coralie Cross

Chair, LPCF

I have worked with Hil in various capacities over several years and I would highly recommend her services to other SMEs. She has a brilliant and incredibly calm and helpful way of looking at problems and opportunities and her cheerful demeanour and sense of humour make her a pleasure to work with. For the last few years I have been a member of the mentoring group Hil facilitates called Band of Bosses – this is a breath of fresh air, a great investment in my time, and again, highly recommended for business owners such as myself.

Jo Wilson

Managing Director, Fill the Gap Marketing

Hil, in her inimitable way, was able to turn a disparate and divided staff group into a focussed and positive workforce. She inspires and challenges, getting to the heart of a situation with a wealth of strategies and solutions. Hil has excellent communication styles, well able to engage with adults on an individual level or for large staff groups. Her boundless energy is infectious.

Hil has been and continues to be a real pleasure to work with.

David Stewart OBE

College Principal, Oak Field School and Specialist Sports College

Please picture a box, a boring white box, inside it are normal constrained thoughts. ‘Outside the box’ is where we all try to do our creative thinking. It is a very colourful, dynamic place where new techniques and ideas are created. Boring old ideas have no place here and there is no shortage of joined up thinking. This place is ‘Hil’s World’ and our Senior Leadership Team have spent some incredible time in ‘Hil’s World’ – challenging old ways of doing things and educating ourselves with powerful new skills.

Edward Herring


Managing Director, Washingborough Hall Hotel

Hil has been crucial to the development of my business. Our monthly meetings are uplifting, motivational and an opportunity to brainstorm. I always am so much more productive the following week after seeing Hil which sets a precedence for the whole month. I couldn’t recommend Hil highly enough. She has a refreshing approach that is truly unique.

Hil has been and continues to be a real pleasure to work with.

David Stewart OBE

College Principal, Oak Field School and Specialist Sports College

Hil managed to corral the team through a very complicated and in depth analysis of our individual and business values, ethos, motivations and challenges and guide us to come out the other end with an incredibly detailed plan that we can practically use into the future. I am so glad we employed Hil’s services as our business is complex and ever changing in these challenging financial times and I feel that you have given us a strong foundation to work from into the future.

Rebecca Dray

Managing Director, DCE

Hil is unique in her approach and can offer so much value personally and professionally. Hil has a fantastic ability to effectively unpick you as a person as well as your business. She has a genuine interest in what you do, but more importantly why you do it. She will ask those uncomfortable questions and think more holistically but with clear, effective strategies.

Hil is driven on seeing change, self-reflection and growth in people. She has an ability to put you and your business under a spot light but without judgement or discomfort. Hil’s approach and support is always well received and I recommend any business owner to contact Hil to identify how she may be able to assist you and your business.

Hil has been and continues to be a real pleasure to work with.

Richard Bell

CEO, SESN

Hil has given me a new lease of life. I spent a day doing a break out session which I was not sure about to start with. Once we started Hil helped me to put to bed some limiting beliefs and move on. I left with a clear understanding of my future priorities for my businesses and my personal life. It felt like a weight had been lifted from me and I had been given renewed focus. Weeks afterwards I put what I learnt into practice which help me make a choice on how to deal with any situation in a way that I wanted to. I can now apply this to all areas of my life. Thanks for such a life changing set of coaching sessions.”

Darren Hickie

Managing Director, Develop and Promote Ltd

I have to admit to being sceptical about Band of Bosses ®. I liked the concept but wasn’t sure what I’d get out of it. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Hil is the breath of fresh air that every business owner needs. The group sessions are great fun, interactive with a diverse and interesting bunch who bring great shared experiences.  As a facilitator, mentor and leader Hil is amazing!  Intelligent, intuitive, incisive, yet hilariously bonkers, Hil is able to cut straight to the heart of a problem and talk you down the path that will lead you to a logical plan of action and the ultimate solution. Band of Bosses is a great idea, a group of disparate business owners with similar problems, taking time to help each other through the daily challenges we all face. I can’t recommend Hil Gibb and BoB highly enough.

Jon Arden

Managing Director, Osprey Consulting

My wife and I have worked with Hil for around 7 years. She has helped us with training and the strategic development of our hospitality team. Her skills and ability to read and interpret human behaviour always leave me in awe and feeling a little discombobulated. I have also been a member of her BOB group since its inception. An interesting group of disparate business owners and CEO’s all facing similar issues and benefiting from collective problem sharing and solving. Business life is a challenge for most leaders and being a BOB member has very quickly become a crucial part of my continued professional development on a number of different levels.

Edward Herring

Managing Director, Washingborough Hall Hotel

I can’t thank Hil enough for having such a positive impact on my personal development. Hil is a great listener, with a brilliant sense of humour and can distil the many complex issues facing an individual – these might be things that are not immediately obvious. Rather than solve the problems for the individual, Hil has a unique skill to help coach the person concerned to their own solution.

Hil has helped me to re-focus, manage my time and given me strategies that have enabled me to approach problems and issues from a different perspective. She is extremely supportive and will always make time to listen and provide practical advice when needed.

After a session with Hil you will go away feeling positive, focused and more confident. I couldn’t be happier with what I have achieved through working with Hil and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others.

Charlotte Baxter

Enterprise Manager, Sparkhouse

I have worked with Hil for over 10 years in her capacity as both coach and facilitator. She has supported and guided me through various life challenges with her wealth of knowledge and ideas, having significant impact on the decisions made on strategic direction and goals. Hil never ceases to amaze me with her infectious positivity and enthusiasm within some of the most challenging times. I have recommended Hil many times over the last few years to business leaders, It is an absolute pleasure to work with her.
