Roxanne Hobbs, Founder of The Hobbs Consultancy

Roxanne is the founder of The Hobbs Consultancy. She has an advertising industry background and is passionate about driving transformation in the workplace via diversity and inclusivity. Roxanne is a huge advocate of inclusive leadership and believes that this is key to helping organisations get the best out of their people (male and female, of all ages, and from all backgrounds) and to succeed in creating a supportive, productive and diverse working environment. Roxanne believes that coaching is a critical tool in supporting individuals to ‘show up as themselves’.

Roxanne uses the Co-Active model in her coaching, which is built on the cornerstone that we are all naturally resourceful, creative and whole. She brings compassion, authenticity, warmth and a desire for change to her coaching. Roxanne has also been trained to deliver The Daring Way™ – Brené Brown’s curriculum that supports participants in living brave, showing up and being seen. It explores the concepts of vulnerability and shame, gets to grips with what keeps you playing small and builds resilience skills.
