Lesley Dobree, an experienced executive coach
Passionate About Inspiring Others

My company, Dialogue for Success was founded in 2017 after I retired from my role as Deputy Vice Chancellor at Anglia Ruskin University. My career to date has spanned over 40 years during which I have held top leadership jobs in the UK higher education and health sectors. I enjoy working with people and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge, skills and expertise which I am keen to share and use to help others to succeed. Hence Dialogue for Success  focuses on providing executive and leadership coaching as well as management consultancy services.

Most of my recent clients have academic or professional service leadership roles in UK universities. My in-depth knowledge and understanding of the UK higher education sector proves useful in terms of providing a contextual background and is kept up-to date through working with senior leaders and policy makers in my role as Director of the highly regarded NCEE Entrepreneurial Leaders Programme. Dialogue for Success is working currently with the Chestnut Education Group, the National Centre for Enterprise Education and a number of UK universities.
