Before starting at Future Proof Learning, I worked in a few different jobs from retail to lettings. I never quite found the satisfaction I was seeking although I was determined to find a position that would guide me on towards a successful career.

I started as an administrator with Future Proof Learning in 2015. Since then I have worked hard to move up and utilised the generous opportunities offered to me. I have now successfully transitioned into Consultant and Coach, an achievement of which I’m very proud.

I’m passionate about the work we do at Future Proof Learning. I strongly believe everyone has the potential and capability to develop themselves and move further in their career, I’ve been there myself!

How do you like to relax?

Cooking nice food whilst drinking a glass of wine.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, a fox terrier called Lily and I’m obsessed with her.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Any cheesy American rom-com (much to my husband’s dismay).

Client Testimonials

“I have used the coaching sessions to focus on real and imminent work issues. I have found the approach has achieved positive and measurable benefit to me as an individual in terms of outcomes and there is an associated benefit to my organisation (eg I have resolved concerns/de-escalated a situation that might otherwise have impacted on me and other parts of the business in terms of risk/reputation/resource).

I have also nurtured a new business relationship which has led to a building of trust and confidence – reaping benefits such as improved decision-making.

Sunna is reliable, knowledgeable, supportive, and has shared tools and approaches that have been relevant and effective for me. She has a very pleasant and professional manner, and I would most definitely recommend her to others.”
