Kim Barnes Coaching

I’m an experienced communications coach and consultant, with 17 years’ experience of working with leaders and teams in the UK, Europe, US, and China.


I specialise in financial and professional services, and have longstanding relationships with property, tech and health sector clients.


I began my coaching career in 2006, starting at Brunswick Group, and then setting my own company up in 2015.


Before that, I was a reporter for over 20 years, reporting on national and international stories for the BBC, ITN, Associated Press TV, and regional TV and radio news in the UK.
