We’d love you to meet 6’0, London-based Sagina; our newest contributor and Resident Career Coach. In the coming weeks, Sagina will be providing support, advice and tips on a variety of topics and if you have any career questions, you can reach her via theteam@tallguides.com

I’m Sagina,  I’m 6’0” and a London based certified career coach, workshop facilitator and speaker. I’m a collaborative and dynamic coach working with women in business and millennials empowering them to achieve their career goals, enhance their performance in the workplace and take ownership of their career development. I specialise in the following areas: confidence coaching, career progression and promotion, performance and leadership coaching, transition coaching for: education to employment, maternity leave and redundancy.

To date I have worked with clients from BBC, UKTV, Channel 4 Television, BNY Mellon, Watson Farley Williams, The Telegraph, Lewis Silkin, The Intern Group and TP ICAP. I’m passionate about Diversity & Inclusion in the workplace and have been a guest speaker on the topic at international law firm Watson Farley Williams and the FISD Women’s Group. I am also an ambassador and volunteer for Dress for Success.

Prior to establishing my coaching consultancy firm – 60 Min Career Coach – I spent 10 years working for UK broadcaster, Channel 4 Television as a Senior Editorial Executive within the Content Creation team where I managed a yearly portfolio consisting of over 200 hours of programming worth £8 million pounds. I am also a bit of a geek and have an undergraduate degree in History from University of London, SOAS. I also studied law at BPP Law School and spent time at law firms Olswang and Reed Smith.

When I’m not coaching I enjoy travelling the world with my husband and exploring new cultures and cuisines. I’m always on the hunt for tall jeans and can be found mostly wearing Breton stripes (I have an extensive collection) print dresses and a lot of black.

I’m thrilled to be part of Tall Guides and #teamtall as I am on a mission to empower women and millennials to have the career they desire. Being a tall woman of colour I can truly relate to many of the obstacles that we face and I look forward to supporting you all and celebrating our difference!
