Coach Profile

Deirdre Acheson

I’m Deirdre Acheson, a business advisor, coach, and mentor who runs my own business.  I help companies and individuals achieve success when they have big, new, or important opportunities in the business world. Most of my clients have significant goals to achieve, and more than a few challenges to address.

Clients come to me for a fresh perspective – to ensure they’re doing the right things, in the right ways, to achieve the right results.

I partner to validate strategies, develop implementation plans, address challenges, and mitigate weaknesses. I focus on leadership, communication, and alignment. My goal is always to accelerate progress and achieve real and lasting results.

Let’s talk about how I can help.

I’ve been inspired by so many people.  I’ve also been lucky to have the opportunity to work with some of the best of the best across multiple organisations.  It’s my goal to pay-it-forward, share what I know, and help others find success and satisfaction in their work.

If you’re ready to move more quickly toward your goals – the new, big, and important things on your plate – reach out to talk today.   You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by having a conversation about how I  can help you reach the next level of achievement.


About Me

After qualifying as an accountant I moved to America where I spent a number of years working in Retail and Distribution, before returning to Ireland where I worked in the rapidly evolving and growing Telecommunication sector for over 20 years.  I’ve worked in Corporates, Joint Ventures and Startups. I’ve held senior roles in Finance, Operations, Technology, Customer Experience and Customer Care. I bring a combination of real commercial understanding combined with people management at all levels.

I’m a business advisor, coach, and mentor that specialises in working with entrepreneurs, business owners and self-employment preparation. I help individuals achieve success with career guidance and  career planning.
