Susi says: "Over the years I have been lucky enough to have worked with some truly inspirational people. CoachMatching is a result of all that I have gained from them."

About Susi

Susi has worked in senior management and as a leadership coach and consultant.   She has a full range of experience working with blue chip Fortune 500 companies to independent start-ups. She combines a scientific approach with intuition and experience in the areas of behavioural assessment, leadership and organisation design.

Susi started her career in banking and finance and quickly moved into training and development with British Airways where she was responsible for training flight and cabin crew in a wide variety of interpersonal, supervisory and team skills.

She then successfully started her own business as a training consultant and worked exclusively for London Underground for two years on a two tier leadership development programme. Both the company and the programme are still operative in the UK.

In 1994 Susi joined an international human resource consultancy and worked with fortune 500 companies around the world, consulting on recruitment and selection, training and development, at all levels, in organisational systems and design.

In 2003 Susi moved to Cape Town where she worked as a freelance consultant with Deloitte providing leadership coaching and training, and business development.  During this time she established her own HR consultancy, before establishing Ekin Astengo Coaching in 2007.

She and her then partner Simon Ekin decided to focus on different offerings and EAC evolved into CoachMatching in March 2009.
