Nana is supporting the development of Pantheon Leadership, Per Ardua Associates’ Leadership Consultancy business with a particular focus on Leadership Coaching with the C Suite, Senior Executives and future talent. A Chartered Psychologist, she also specialises in the design and facilitation of leadership development programmes, team coaching, senior team effectiveness, and talent assessment and development. She has particular interest in Women in Leadership, Minorites in Leadership and Evolutionary Leadership.
She has held senior positions with a number of consultancies and global companies, both in the UK and overseas. Immediately prior to founding Castlegate International in 2011 she worked with Standard Chartered Bank for several years, defining and executing their learning and talent agenda across the Middle East.

Nana works with people from the inside out, with the whole person, cultivating better self-awareness and authenticity. With increased self-awareness and system awareness, leaders can align their own life purpose, meaning and values with those of the organisations that they lead, and make consistently wise choices in a complex, uncertain and changing world. She intuitively draws on a number of disciplines including positive psychology, psychosynthesis, systemic coaching and constellations, Gestalt psychology, neuropsychology, role-play, and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). She flexibly uses 360 feedback and a wide range of psychometric and diagnostic tools.
