Juliette is a colleague whom I hold in the highest esteem. I have worked with Juliette at various times over the years – specifically when I have been either undergoing or contemplating some kind of life transition. I have found her to be invaluable as a coach. She asks intuitive questions that cut to the heart of the matter, enabling me to unravel what seems overwhelmingly complex, and find the route to change and transformation. I have also recommended her to clients who were going through their own transitions – and I have never had anything less than glowing feedback on her coaching.

Juliette has the ability to teach you skills and tools that enable you not just to become a better leader but a more authentic human being …
Rekha Nathoo, Director of CINDI (Children in Distress Network)
Juliette has a wonderful way of connecting deeply with people and affirming their aspirations to bring about positive change.
Because she is authentic, she creates real bonds of trust so that people know they are safe with her. In this space she creates, her one-on-one clients and her workshop delegates experience a new sense of possibility and excitement about their future. They are able to tap into motivating energy and embrace new ways of doing things and more productive ways of approaching their work and play.
Juliette is a competent workshop facilitator, and in the school space, we are delighted to have a trainer who brings an empathetic understanding of classroom practice to Thinking Schools South Africa (TSSA)’s work with heads and teachers. Her commitment and passion drive her successful leadership of community school projects.
Because managing a school nowadays is increasingly about adapting to change, TSSA is excited about the coaching skills that Juliette can offer school leadership teams. Now they can have a thinking partner to guide the transformation of great concepts into everyday reality.

Juliette Gyure was employed by Oxfam Australia as a career coach in 2015 to support staff due to the closure of Oxfam Australia in South Africa. Juliette was instrumental during our closure in providing our staff members with the tools they required to move forward in their chosen career paths. She assisted staff members with CV writing, highlighting their areas of strength, how to prepare for interviews, how best to answer interview questions, selecting study courses and how to focus on life after Oxfam. Juliette also assisted us further in our Change Management workshops and provided one on one support to each staff member. Juliette’s professional coaching and mentoring has been praised by each staff member and her guidance and insight invaluable during a difficult and emotional time for the Oxfam Team. I would recommend Juliette as a career coach and mentor to any organization and hope to use her services in the future.

Juliette worked with me when I relocated from South Africa to Shanghai. It was a difficult transition. However, Juliette’s coaching gave me the skills and space to turn all these challenges into positive experiences. She kept me focused throughout this transition so that I could keep working towards my longer-term goals. Juliette played a significant role in making sure my time in Shanghai was an enriching and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend her as a coach to anyone anticipating a relocation or transition in their lives.

I have known Juliette as a coach and colleague in COMENSA for a number of years. I enjoy her authenticity, empathy and integrity as a coach which she balances with insightful questioning and holding to account. She is a dedicated professional.
Graham Keegan, owner and executive director of Choice Point
Juliette is highly capable of being unfazed by detail and content and has the ability to hold many mind maps from the client’s thinking and pull the threads together in a way that allows the coachees to see their thinking. Juliette has the ability to ask questions that focus the coachee on forward thinking, preventing them from getting lost in the detail. Those who are fortunate to be coached by Juliette will benefit from her wide coaching knowledge, her obvious skills and her positive, empathic attitude.
