Naomi has spent the last decade empowering business leaders and entrepreneurs to reach more of their potential. She has built a high impact career enabling clients to achieve positive, transformative changes in their personal lives, their organisations and their communities.
A social entrepreneur at heart, she launched first business whilst studying at university. The 4WD Foundation delivered behavioural change programmes to some of London's most vulnerable young people.
She went on to advise top investment banks on how to attract diverse entry-level talent and build inclusive cultures. Facilitating leadership development and employee engagement initiatives for corporate clients quickly followed. Clients include BP, CBRE, IHG, McDonald’s and Michael Kors.
In 2014 she set up the positive change agency, A Life Less Ordinary Wanted. From FTSE 500 companies in crisis, to individuals at a crossroads in life, Naomi harnesses emotional intelligence as a coach and facilitator to support her clients to become adaptable, compassionate, resilient leaders, building businesses and lives they love.
She graduated from the University of London with BSc Hons in Management. Since graduation has continued learning with WYSE International, Common Purpose and the Coaching Academy.

Katey Searle - VA to the Director
Virtual Assistant to the Director
I know I am biased, mainly because I am one, but I am convinced that virtual assistants are the future. Becoming a virtual assistant was the best move I ever made, I get to use my 20 years plus knowledge and expertise to help amazing entrepreneurs, like Naomi Jane, free up time to concentrate on the most important things, like her clients.
The truth is that most personal and professional relationships today are virtual. I’ll bet many of yours are as well. Almost all business transactions are conducted via e-mail and occasionally phone. It really doesn’t matter where an assistant is located. No one knows the difference.
All you need to know is that you have a sharp, responsive assistant to contact when Naomi Jane is unavailable, and Naomi has a trusted business partner to help her do what she does best.
