Dr. Louie Gardiner

PhD, MBA, BA (hons), FRSA, Author, Poet; Accredited Supervisor and Master Coach, Change-maker, facilitator, learning partner.

Louie is passionately involved in liberating human potential, drawing upon the natural processing dynamics of ‘Presence in Action’ and ‘Symmathesic Agency’ which pulse at the heart of all she does with individuals, groups and organisations.

These accessible approaches for catalysing personal and systemic change tap into diverse modes of exploration and expression that leverage all that makes us human. Deploying a fusion of poetic, visual, kinaesthetic, intellectual and performative modalities, Louie tickles out authentic human exchange, invoking those who engage to surface their personal and collective brilliance.

Louie’s work is grounded in her doctorate which epitomises the integration of deep personal and collective inquiry; emergent symmathesic professional practice; coherent philosophical and theoretical foundations, and a pioneering approach to academic research.

Her past roles include CEO, Board Trustee, Head of Corporate Performance & Development; visiting lecturer to undergraduate and post-graduate degrees.

She has contributed articles to both academic and practice-based journals e.g. Human Arenas, Cybernetics and Human Knowing, e-O&P Journal, Coaching Today, the3rdi magazine, and Book Chapters in Coaching Supervision Groups: Resourcing Practitioners (2021); Coaching Supervision: Advancing Practice, Changing Landscapes (2019); and The Collaboratory (2015); poetry anthology Attending, Responding, Becoming: An anthology of surprises beyond intention or design (2021) see Louie’s website.

Shirley Smith

Shirley has extensive experience in cross-cultural work as a coach, mentor and supervisor of coaches and mentors. She often works with people who are working across cultures and might themselves be living in a different country from where they were born. Perhaps thinking in or speaking a language that is not their mother tongue. As a coach, supervisor and facilitator creative tools provide a gateway to a different way framing themes, discovering possibilities and expressing difficult emotions or dynamics when our constraint of language cannot readily or easily express what we are feeling or experiencing. From first-hand experience Shirley believes that imagery, art-based and embodied approaches can work both in-person and virtually. These are tools and skills that anybody can learn. Shirley has fine-tuned her skills in working with creative tools on a foundation of over 30 years in global human resource roles enabling both organisational and leadership development.
