Testimonials


Francesca inspired me to go after what I want. Working with her allowed me to awaken creative skills that had fallen asleep. When I hit rough patches in my career, she helped me get back on track while giving me the tools to stay true to who I am. Anyone would be lucky to have Francesca as a coach or mentor.’

— Carlota Iglesias, User Experience Designer at Soho House & Co.

 

‘I booked a creativity coaching session with Francesca hoping to feel creatively re-energised at the beginning of the year — and the session definitely delivered. Francesca has a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw on and was very adaptive to my needs and interests as they emerged during the session. She has a calmness and openness about her which made me feel very at home and able to tap into my creative self. I'd recommend her coaching services to anyone looking to bring more creativity into any aspect of their life.’

—Sarah Henderson, Director of Operations, Echo Ventures CIC

  

‘Francesca’s program helped me find a structure that's realistic and achievable, yet bold enough to push me creatively. I created more things I'm happy within the last month than I did in the last year!’

— Dan Parry, Product Manager at Dubzoo

 

Outside of having an approachable and friendly demeanour in her sessions and despite the whirlwind of things I threw her way, Francesca was able to quickly put some things into perspective for me in a way that made sense, but at the same time, allow the space for me to figure things out on my own as well. Her follow-up emails are also extremely helpful for review purposes to look back on, and if applicable, she will also provide outside resources to help you proceed on your own journey more sufficiently. I’m feeling more confident moving forward with my ideas instead of overthinking every part of my current goals. Thank you so much, and looking forward to more sessions in the future!’

— Corey Gott, Designer

 

‘The creative act has always been a source of intimidation for me. Yet, during the course of 6 weeks, I have managed to transform my creative ambitions into achievable goals, thanks to Francesca’s Creativity workshop. The course has enabled me to establish a creative process, understand my creative self and connect with other creatives. If you want to turn your ideas into action, then I would look no further than Francesca’s Creativity courses!’

— Kian Bakhtiari, Founder of The People, Creative Strategist, Financial Times Future Leader

 

‘Working with Francesca has been a welcome change in the way I think about my own creativity. Over the course of a few sessions, I was able to reflect on pre-existing creative habits and encouraged to develop new ones in accordance with my personal aims and aspirations. Francesca is an incredibly open, encouraging and inspiring practitioner and I’d recommend working with her in a heartbeat!’

—Marianne Hanoun, Deputy Editor, Lecture in Progress

  

‘I left each of Francesca’s sessions excited about what I had learnt and the creative possibilities ahead of me. Her experience shines through as she talks about the topics about which she is obviously so passionate about. I hope to attend one of her courses again in the future!’

— Myles Cowper-Coles, Senior Software Engineer, Thriva Health

‘Incredible intuition! Frankie is one of the rare instructors who also doubled up as a mentor and inspiration for the whole class. She mentored me through the course, being able to recognise my strengths and improve my weaknesses. With her confidence to be honest about best practices, her passion for forms will live with me forever.’
