"My experience with Laurence Hewitt through the Better Up Coaching Program has been nothing short of amazing. From the first session to the last he coached me through some insecurities I had as a leader and in turn, bettered the larger team. He helped me gain confidence and work towards techniques that helped me grow as a leader. He also coached me to approach and empower my team to grow which has radically changed the day to day within my department. I will always look back on my time with Laurence with such gratitude."
