Our Team

Welcome to Acacia Coaching and Development, founded by Charlotte Hinks and Emma Donlon, who are both qualified coaches and trainers.
We create engaging learning experiences, based on accelerated learning techniques, that genuinely make a difference.

I have over 25 years’ experience in Supported Housing, developing services to meet the needs of vulnerable and socially disadvantaged people. It’s important to me that we create a safe and challenging environment, where people
can believe in themselves and achieve their potential. I use my leadership and management experience to bring training and coaching to life.

I have over 20 years’ experience in Learning and Development and have always been fascinated by how the mind works. I’ve learnt that developing people is about balancing the head and heart, we have to first capture people’s imaginations, before we can create the change that delivers business results.
