Geraldine Gallacher


Geraldine’s strategic and innovative focus led to her founding ECC in 1994, long before one-to-one coaching was mainstream. Her belief that diverse teams make for better business has helped steer the company to become thought leaders in the area of the female career. Geraldine’s purposeful leadership of ECC is now embracing broader issues of inequality and has manifested in the company’s sponsorship of the Good Business Initiative.

Meet a selection of our Accredited Coaches

Pragmatic executive coaching delivered by accredited coaches.


“The six sessions I had with my ECC Coach changed my perspective of coaching. I was initially uncertain (and possibly sceptical) about the benefits of coaching but my coach read me very well and knew when to coax a response out from me by being encouraging and when to firmly push me to see the benefits of reframing some of my previously held positions.”

Head of Legal, International Property Group

“Both from my personal experience of ECC’s approach, and from seeing the impact on our company I can particularly recommend their pragmatic approach and their insight into our collective and individual needs.”

Senior Leader, Commercial Property Management and Investment Company

“The team is a pleasure to work with, consistently bringing expert advice and guidance, energy and professionalism to the partnership.”

Diversity and Inclusion Executive, Multinational Investment Bank

“The coaches at ECC are commercial, pragmatic and highly focused. The coaching they provide on an individual basis has given valuable insight and helped our senior executives to gain greater perspective in terms of managing relationships, prioritising, strategic thinking, influencing and confidence.”

Senior Leader, Multinational Retailing Company

“I found my ECC coaching sessions incredibly valuable – for the unique and necessary space I was seeking as a sole proprietor to feel heard, understood and connected to a peer in business. My coaching experience provided a safe space where I could be the real me, and provided a relationship I could truly trust. Thank you ECC.”

Manager, Creative Retail Agency
