Coaching Results


I have know Louisa for many years and recently used her services to engage with my sales and operations team at Oakwood worldwide. Louisa provided coaching on presentation skills and I found her approach to the coaching and the delivery excellent and the energy she gave us during the day was amazing. Each of the attendees on the course came out a different person with regards to their presentations skillset. I would highly recommend Louisa to any future clients and the high detail and passion that Louisa puts into her role is beyond expectations.

Juliet Howie Director of Sales, EMEA Oakwood Worldwide, 


“Having spent many years with working for my employer, a restructure was implemented within the business, which prevented further promotion opportunity and changed the dynamics! It was the push I had needed to make a move as for some time I’d felt unfulfilled and stretched. I met Louisa at a networking event and decided to take her career coaching services on. Her energy, knowledge and challenging mind pushed me to look more openly and clearer at what I could do.  I can’t believe how complacent I had become with my job. I am now in a new role, new company and all is going well and I credit Louisa for getting me here! Highly recommend her.” Lisa Nugent, Senior Marketing, FMCG


“Louisa has been of very valuable assistance to me, with regards to ideas, recommendations and support, in connection to my next career move. It has been my pleasure liaising with Louisa throughout this year. She has been very supportive. I highly recommend her!” 

John Laurie Interim Managing Director, Travel Industry, Events Sectors/PR/Media


“As a recent graduate engaged with the selective application processes of popular graduate employers, Louisa has been invaluable in helping me articulate my strengths and intentions, to myself as much as to employers. Being equipped with this concise understanding of what I could offer to employers gave me a confidence which was integral to securing my current position. I would give her my unreserved recommendation.”

Chris Breeze, Oxford University Post Graduate Music 


“I completed my university degree with a clear focus on the industry I wanted to work in and set about applying for post graduate positions. I achieved success with invitations for interview but I was not being offered the jobs! After 8 months I was ready to give up. Louisa was referred to me and I have to say her help, guidance and honesty was great. She gave me encouragement, tips and challenged me through a mock interview! It worked because I have since been offered 2 job opportunities, one of which I have accepted.”  Kelly Oliver, Cambridge University Post Graduate Media


Resourcing Results


I became introduced to Louisa via LinkedIn and she has found me my new job that I begin mid September. Louisa and her team are amazing, they treat you as a person, are in constant contact throughout the recruitment process and even called to wish me luck for the interviews! (all of which are quite rare in my experience!) They were keen to ensure that all the details were 'just so' and if Louisa was unavailable then there was another contact on hand for any queries. I was impressed with the professionalism, charm and confidence of Louisa and her team. I would definitely use Louisa again (hopefully not in the near future though!) and would recommend her to anyone looking for a new role or looking to recruit a team member

Clare Hancer, Senior Travel Executive


“I have worked with Louisa over many years and can confirm that she is a true professional always providing a detailed candidate and person specification and liaising effectively throughout the course of the assignment. Her attention to detail is exemplary, from the initial briefing discussions, through to presentation of only the best candidates. Louisa has substantive sales & marketing experience and as such makes her an essential business contact when sourcing high quality personnel for that high profile position!”  Regional Sales Director, UK based Hotel Group,


Working with Louisa over the last three years has been a pleasure. The candidates that she has provided me with have always been screened to a very high level. This has cut down the time that I have spent on recruitment. Her expert knowledge of the market place has helped her identify the right person for the right position. Her attention to detail is high and she always keeps her promises and hits deadlines set. A tough negotiator focusing on the win win, but being ever mindful of budgets and goals. Jason Lewis-Purcell


"I have worked with Louisa on numerous occasions over the past 3 years when looking to hire senior sales staff. Louisa simply never lets you down. She pro-actively sources quality candidates and has succeeded for me on every occasion. Additionally, she is highly personable, intuitive, efficient and always a pleasure to work with". Maria Pajares, Managing Director, Mason Rose


"A refreshing experience to have worked Purple Eclipse to recruit a Regional Director of Sales for our property.  Thorough, detailed and on the ball, delivered the service she promised from the onset.  Real professional!" VP Sales and Marketing, Leading Hotel Group


“Having known Louisa for many years as an outstanding Recruitment Consultant, when my own time came to plan a change in career direction I had confidence that she would be able to coach me expertly. My confidence was entirely well placed - she supplied excellent coaching, pitched expertly at my personality and career needs - and I credit her totally for my subsequent success. She has such an understanding of people and of the Travel & Tourism industry in particular that I would have no hesitation in recommending or turning to her for recruitment or career coaching needs.” Geoffrey Breeze, Marketing Director,  World Tourism Council
