Marie Haycocks, founder and lead coach at Certanovo, spent many years learning how to engage, lead and develop people in a FTSE 100 organisation and therefore knows from experience how hard leadership can be and the impacts of poor leadership.

At Certanovo we work with you to achieve the results that you need. Our bespoke coaching and development solutions use a variety of proven techniques to develop the inner capabilities, external behaviours and brand image required for great performance.

We inspire, challenge and support our clients to become the best possible leaders, managers and employees that they can be.

  In a nutshell, the businesses we work with have better leaders, better teams and better results.


  • Marie’s style is superb: relevant, professional, energetic, empathetic and fun.

  • Marie provided a superb program that was fully geared towards my agenda. Her approach was empathetic and supportive and she adapted authentic techniques to suit my needs and comfort zones, enabling me to achieve clear direction, build my confidence and self belief, motivate myself to drive my business forward and achieve business growth.

  • Marie is very easy to get along with and to open up to and she very quickly gained a good understanding of me and how I ticked. As a result of her focused, direct and honest coaching sessions, I have been calmer and happier in myself and I have noticed that my team are happier and more productive.

    Operations Manager, Logistics
  • We asked Marie to run a leadership development programme for our team and the outcomes have been fantastic. Marie’s coaching and facilitation approach is professional, inspiring and engaging and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Marie for her services. We look forward to working with her again.
