Kelly Swingler

Kelly is an Award Winning Executive Coach, Author, Speaker, Psychologist, Mum, Yogi, and Neuroscience Geek. Since 2014 she’s coached some of the leading HR Influencers and People Leaders across a global platform and  now works specifically with Professional Women.

During an eight-year period working in HR Kelly was promoted seven times, her salary increased by more than £100,000 but in 2013 she reached burnout. It was time to reflect on values, the work she wanted to do and the pace she was working at.

Kelly uses her experience to coach high-performing, sometimes over-achieving, ambitious Core-Led Professional Women to help them achieve their big goals without burning out and help them to see what they can achieve when they become their own VIPs. Kelly’s clients vary from NHS Consultants to Architects, Barristers, Directors, Business Owners, MD’s and more. The commonality between them all is that they are core-led, desperate to live and lead from their values and to make a difference in their field of expertise.

Matt Manners

Matt was born into a half English/ half Irish media obsessed family. A journalist grandfather, a grandmother who said he was blessed by the blarney and a father who led a top communications agency. So storytelling has always been very important to him.

He followed in his family’s footsteps for the first ten years of his career, living and working in London, Sydney and Boston helping organizations communicate with their customers. It was near the end of this period he began focusing on the CX and ultimately the number one influence on it…the employee experience.

The lack of appreciation of and investment in the EX by leaders and businesses drove Matt to invest all he had in the world to create The Employee Engagement Awards. To recognize and tell the stories of those that dared to try new things. Things that would enhance the people experience for the benefit of both them and the organization. Over five years The EE Awards expanded around the world and evolved into much more than just engagement and awards. Evolving into a global community, an academy, a content hub, events, a foundation and it also did awards.

So in 2020 it felt right to bring it all together in a new home called, Inspiring Workplaces. An organization that wants to change the world, with you, through the world of work.
