Following a successful career in advertising at Saatchi and Saatchi and other global advertising agencies, Gareth co-founded Cambridge Strategy centre in 1996. Since then he has worked with numerous large organisations and SME’s on the creation and implementation of their competitive strategies and the development of senior individuals and teams.
From 1996 until 2004 Gareth was an outside tutor at the London Business School in their department of Leadership and Organisational Behaviour.
Core to all Gareth’s work is the belief that every individual is capable of remarkable achievements if they free themselves to exploit all of their strengths. The most successful companies are those organisations that most successfully inspire and harness the talent available to them.
Gareth is the Director responsible for our Purposeful Coaching Programs and Processes.

Dr. Julie Bullen
Julie applies her profound expertise in psychology to helping organisations, teams and individuals to lead their own change and growth. Typically this involves her in clearing blocks to performance, leading people out of conflict, and making the transition to a better position.
Julie has too many qualifications to list here, but the important thing to note is she has both a DPhil in psychology from Oxford and an MPhil in Clinical Psychology from the Maudsley Hospital in London, demonstrating her passion for marrying cutting-edge theory and practice. Julie’s approach is deeply personal, very flexible, and incisively perceptive. Clients always comment on her unique blend of empathy and outstanding professional competence.
The reach of Julie’s ability is reflected in the breadth of her clients. She is as comfortable working with large public service organisations such as the NHS or the DWP as she is with global banks like Standard Chartered and retailers like Arcadia.
Julie directs all our psychological methodologies, tools and techniques.

Always looking for a fresh challenge, she is currently studying psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
