Aoife Garvin, Director at Novus Agility - Transformation

I have worked with Valerie over the last eight years, as part of her teams in McKesson and in Bord Gais. Valerie has a wealth of business, finance and change management knowledge, combined with a strategic approach and a deep understanding of what organisational change really means.

Valerie led large programs and global initiatives with vision and transparency. She excels in navigating extremely complex organisations by building strong relationships and driving lasting change.

Valerie has enormous respect for the skill and knowledge of those she works with. She creates balanced, trusted and empowered teams and recognises the unique skills that each person brings to bear. She is a truly supportive leader and is committed to creating opportunities, continuous learning and fostering growth for herself and for her team.

Through my time working for Valerie, she has supported my personal and professional development in terms of coaching, mentoring, and providing me with the tools and opportunities I needed to pursue my goals. I have no doubt that Valerie will excel in the pursuit of her passion for executive coaching and leadership development and will be a powerful catalyst for those she works with going forward.

Danis Canty, Global VP/CTO Technology

I worked with Val for three years in McKesson. Val has a rare balance of vision, leadership and execution to deliver high value global initiatives in an agile manner.

Val leads teams globally with energy and empowerment which leads to highly functional teams with the innate leadership and self-start mindset in each of her people.

Her focus and bravery for transformation made a huge difference at McKesson. Val was a regular coach to me and my career in these years, and as I encountered unseen situations to me, Val was someone I could go to for advice.

This was because Val has superb ability to combine her experience and learning to find solutions and set even growth paths for people. She epitomises the growth mindset.

Audrey Bilson, Business & Team Agility - Transformation

I worked as a member of Valerie’s team for almost four years, mainly as part of McKesson Technology’s Agile CoE. Valerie led a highly collaborative multinational team that supported a large organisational and agile transformation.

She is a through-and-through servant leader who enables her team and removes obstacles to ensure achievement of goals. Valerie is hugely supportive as a leader and places an emphasis on development of her team ranging from encouraging the pursuit of hands-on development opportunities within the organisation as well as formal development. Personally, I have benefited from this focus on growth linked to business outcomes.

Valerie is an outstanding communicator and builds lasting relationships both within and outside any team she leads. She brings her wealth of business, finance, technology and transformational experience to the table both professionally and in her approach to team development.

It has been a pleasure to be on her team. I am certain that Valerie will add enormous value and experience in whatever she chooses to do.
