Company: HORSES FOR PEOPLE
Name: June Burgess
I am currently Director of four successful companies and have bought, sold, built, established and developed many more over my 27 years in business.
First and foremost an entrepreneur, I have also held responsible corporate positions and, more recently, have embraced the challenge of coaching.
I am probably best known for my recent success, the development in 2008 of a city centre car park into the 132 bedroom Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast. The hotel is on the Conde Naste Hot List and has won numerous awards. This is largely due to my emphasis on teamwork, leadership and customer service that supported the establishment of the business through the recession.
Horses have always been a huge part of my life and I have ridden competitively at International level for over 20 years. I have over 40 years experience of working with and learning from horses.
I’m passionate about developing authenticity and communication strengths in all individuals and see this as the way forward in business.
My practical approach to business, coaching qualification and my affinity for horses have driven me to develop the most insightful, experiential personal and leadership development programmes available.
