Certanovo Coaching and Development Consultancy specialises in helping businesses who recognise that their people are the key to success and who want to invest in their leaders and teams to help grow them, and in turn, grow their business, leaving a legacy to be proud of.

We recognise that in today’s fast-paced world the high expectations of leaders and people within businesses can lead to dissatisfaction, lack of motivation or even burn out, with a huge cost to both the individual and the organisation.

Why Certanovo?

The name Certanovo is derived from the Latin for positive change. We help our clients to embrace who they are and welcome the changes needed to mind-set and behaviours that are getting in the way of excellence. This adoption of positive change empowers them to be the best version of themselves.

About Marie

Marie Haycocks is the lead executive, leadership coach and facilitator at Certanovo. Her background is in Financial Sevices where, during a successful 18-year career in the sector, she held various senior positions, managing large change projects and programmes, and leading and developing teams, nationally and internationally.

It was after she was offered the opportunity to take redundancy that Marie experienced the transformational effects of coaching. This inspired her to qualify as an executive and leadership coach and to set up Certanovo to help other business leaders.

“Having spent many years learning how to engage, lead and develop people in a FTSE 100 organisation, and having experienced the transformational effects of coaching myself, I am deeply committed to helping other people achieve their potential and accelerate their performance through coaching. I am also driven to help professional women succeed in business and to increase the diversity of leaders within organisations today.”
