Lead. Achieve. Succeed.

The personal trainer for your career

Career Coaching for Women in HR - career coaching that will boost your confidence and your options.

HR Specialist

I am dedicated to HR professionals who are seeking a gateway to the life they had previously only dreamt and hoped for. 

20+ years experience

Using my 20+ years experience in professional services, I am fully equipped to lean into your challenges and help you overcome them.

Passionate about your success

I have infectious energy and will not stop until you have the confidence to get the results you want.

Businesses of all sizes

I enjoy working with SMEs, start ups and flexible techs.

Have you grown from 2 to 250+ people and need some help shaping your future people needs?

About me

It takes extraordinary courage and bravery to make real change. Are you often left feeling frustrated, under valued or afraid to take a different path?

I hear you and I see you. 

Change can often feel completely unachievable when the pressure of competing demands is overwhelming. Prioritising you comes last after everyone else, especially when you are continuously fire-fighting for your business. 

​Working with me will empower you and leave you feeling like a whole new person! You will feel energised when you wake up, instead of tired and fed up. You will know you have the tools to succeed.

Hi, I’m Bryony Williams! Here’s the lowdown on why I want to work with you…

Over the last 20 years I’ve climbed, struggled and fought for my place in the corporate space. 

Telling my story may feel familiar to you… working my way up from PA, to Advisor, to Manager to Head of HR I always felt like I wasn’t being seen for the strategic or commercial value I added to the workplace…

  • along the way, I met a lot of negativity & bias.
  • I often heard well “HR is a cost-based centre”.
  • I experienced being told no to a budget or a new idea with no room to explore. 
  • I was often challenged by non-HR fee-earners on expert HR topics…
  • Quickly followed up with them seeking help on a basic management issue(!)
  • I felt flat, frustrated and burnt out… and I definitely, put in all the hours.

“One wise woman has said: My mentor unleashed my passions, channelled my energy, guided my growth, and encouraged my success. These are the absolute best words to describe the journey and experience with Bryony. Bryony easily hits just the right tone and format, which results in an exceptionally light and yet purposeful collaboration with the client. And after all that happens – be prepared because you are definitely opening the door to the next step in your career!”

“Bryony creates a safe space, with no judgement, and over the years has supported me in navigating situations both personally and professionally. Everyone needs a Bryony in their lives.”

“I joined Bryony on her Autumn coaching group. I wanted to give myself some professional ‘me-time’ or ‘self-care’, which I do each year. And I was flabbergasted from what it gave me! I am grateful to have had the learning experience, and meeting amazing women in the group. Happy to talk to anyone considering.”

What my clients say

The HR Method

The HHR Method focuses on 3 combined approaches to leave you feeling calm, in control, energised and free of overwhelm – because I work with how you feel as well as what your environment looks like, you’ll also find confidence comes with the process.

Let me meet you where you are and take some of the burden off your shoulders.

01

Transform your career

Whether you like it or not, if you’re an HRBP, a Head of HR or even a CPO – your needs often come last in the business, not only do you look after a team you also have to influence and guide: The CEO The CFO The Marketing team A team of PAs A large employee base Compliance (yuk!) And the rest… And then there’s the strategy of the people… how do you find time? Would you like to feel empowered, awesome, totally strategic, hungry and NOTICED for adding value (instead of challenged!)… Does it feel totally out of reach when you look around you? Would you like to feel calm in the face of adversity, unruffled when things get sticky and busy and totally in charge when challenged?

03

This is where I come in…

You want to get promoted but you have no idea how you’re going to take on extra responsibility. You want a pay-rise and know you’re doing more than the job requires, but you also know they won’t give you the budget. You want to feel recognised for the work you’re doing – instead of having to prove yourself in every appraisal. AND… you’re battling with a f*ck ton of other thoughts that stop you from being visible, confident and HEARD as the expert in your field and the GO-TO person in your team.

02

You want results, but you have very little time left over or energy in the tank…

And then there’s the strategy of the people… how do you find time?

Would you like to feel empowered, awesome, totally strategic, hungry and NOTICED for adding value (instead of challenged!)…

Does it feel totally out of reach when you look around you?

Would you like to feel calm in the face of adversity, unruffled when things get sticky and busy and totally in charge when challenged?
