CEO | Coach
Who Am I?
I could spend hours telling you all about me and my life. What I bring to the table and who I am as a person, but what does that really tell you? More importantly, if you don’t know who I am, does me going on and on really improve your opinion?
Instead, I’m here to give you a brief introduction to me and my history then I’m going to let some of my clients do the talking.
About Mary Cushen
I am the owner of a few businesses, mother of twin girls (non-identical) and wife to a supportive husband. One of our girls has autism so life is never quite as expected and full of unexpected results. I also have Fibromyalgia so here to show the world that no matter what gets thrown this way, I love business and will continue to help people until I physically can’t!
What are my businesses?
- Mary Cushen – Where you are today. Mary Cushen is part of AMPH Consulting Limited. It is where I deal with all you very important small business owners and entrepreneurs. Focusing on pure coaching to take you on a self-discovery journey to unlock your potential and achieving your goals.
- AMPH Consulting Limited – My corporate business. This is where I offer Consultancy, Mentoring and Training to the larger companies. I don’t do a lot on this side as I love to help those smaller in size but I do love working with corporates to deliver training and enhance they staff experience.
Before starting my very first business, I worked in range of companies. From small businesses with less than twenty employees, through to those with 1000s and listed on FTSE100. With over twenty years in finance, projects and business analysis, I have also worked in nurseries as a nursery nurse, factories as an assembler worker and QC (quality control). I’ve done payroll for a restaurant, been a receptionist for a car dealership and even been a barmaid, serving behind the bar.
Every job I’ve had has added or enhanced a skill that has become invaluable in where I have got to today.
I’m not going to list my qualifications. If there is something in particular you want to know, just ask me or check out my LinkedIn profile, but here are a few I love to show off because, although they may be small things, they show the type of person I am.
What Some Of My Clients Think.
When you pick a coach, the most important things are that they understand you, you have a connection and feel you can trust them, and your values align. If any one of those things isn’t right, the journey will not be as smooth or success as it could be.
Now you have heard a little about me, it’s time to see what my clients think. At the end of the day, if you are going to become a client, you will want to know how it feels.
I recently hired Mary to help us with a quiz to grow our email list. As usual, her work was amazing. Asked all the right questions, made me feel completely supported. Mary works at a speed nobody can match and tight deadlines are never an issue. It’s always really clear that she takes time to get to know your business. I wouldn’t use anyone else for this kind of support, Mary is brilliant!
Mary explained everything very well so I didn’t get overwhelmed or confused. She was always there for me. Professional, helpful and very supportive. I would recommend Mary (and have done already!).
John Burke – Business Process Lead
I have known and worked with Mary for over 10 years now and during that time she has evidenced all the attributes of professional management. Included in her toolkit are her work ethic, enthusiasm, commitment, knowledge, expertise, delivery and attention to detail. She embraces new challenges willingly and provides technical and process support across many wide ranging subjects.
It has come as no surprise to me at her success in providing business solutions and guidance together with an exceptional customer experience across all her activities. I have no hesitation in recommending her work as it will contribute to your future success and in addition provide you with the confidence in her excellent service.
Naomi Ganjavi – Entrepreneur
I can honestly say without the help I received from Mary during our 1 to 1 sessions, my business would not have been born. With her constant support and advice she has helped me gain confidence in the business world and break down all the jargon into easy manageable chunks.
From our very first meeting to 4 months later she has given the same high quality attention and advice that only a professional could give. Like any good teacher, she doesn’t just tell you what to do, she gives you the why behind it so you can fully appreciate how you are developing your business. She has taken the time to get to know me meaning she can tailor her teachings to my learning style, helping me get the most out of each session.
Before working with Mary, I was confused to what direction to take my business. I had the ideas but no direction. After the session I was clear on my direction (I had a decision to make), had clarity and the confidence to move forward. Mary completely understood my business and situation. I am so grateful for Mary’s help. She saw everything so clearly and her advice helped me to make a decision and move forward with confidence. She’s an impressive woman.
When I started with Mary, I was passionate about my business but felt confused as to how to progress from the brick wall I had hit. Mary took the time to fully understand my business and provide information that would help me move forward. Mary gave me clarity, focus and direction. She has given me the tools to put a business mind on and get a plan in to place to take my business further.
