About Antoinette Oglethorpe Ltd

Specialists in Leadership Development and Career Management

Who We Are

Hi. I’m Antoinette Oglethorpe.  I’m a consultant, coach, speaker and author. And I run a training and coaching company specialising in leadership development and career management.

Over the past 25 years’ I have developed leaders for some of the most successful organisations in the world, companies like P&G and Accenture. A defining moment of my career was when I helped start up Avanade, a joint venture between Accenture and Microsoft. That was the inspiration behind my first book, Grow Your Geeks – A Handbook for Developing Leaders in High-Tech Organisations.

I believe there is incredible power at the intersection of leadership development and career management. A growth culture relies on connecting individuals’ career ambitions with the goals of the organisation.  That way, you build a chain reaction.  You have empowered, productive people.  They are motivated to deliver results.  And they create a better future for themselves, their colleagues, their clients and their communities.

Make use of what’s there. We help clients find what’s working and do more of it. If it’s not working, we help them stop and do something different.
