Heena has tried all of them at some point in her life.
She’s worked for small start-ups, medium-sized companies and big, multi-national corporates.
Heena spent the bulk of her working life (thirteen years) at KPMG, starting as an audit junior and moving through the ranks to audit manager. Along the way she dealt with lots of different sizes and types of client, working with a huge variety of people from credit control clerks to CEO’s.
Alongside this wealth of experience, Heena has spent the last fifteen years developing her interest in people, knowledge and self-development.
The many and varied courses she has attended include Coaching, Mentoring, Communication Skills, Marketing and Sales courses/workshops. She’s been heavily involved in the interview processes at a number of the companies she’s worked at, most notably running first interviews and assisting with assessment centres at KPMG.
She is a qualified Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy and has taken some introductory Hypnotherapy courses. She has followed the work of Anthony Robbins, America’s best known self-help guru, and has attended some of his courses.
She’s read numerous books on these subjects, and continues to do so, mainly because she loves learning and reading.
She loves working with people, and throughout her career has been a mentor, a coach, an appraising manager, a shoulder to lean on.
She believes with a passion that it is only when you are happy within yourself, and happy within your situation and environment that you can bring the best of your talents to the fore, and it is with this conviction firmly in mind that she has written her first book, Coping with the Horroffice.
Here’s Heena’s take on the whole thing…
“We had a slight parting of the ways a few years ago, writing and me. We’d kind of taken each other for granted, and then there was a bit of an experiment that didn’t quite work out. We fell out. Didn’t speak to each other for a while. Pretended we didn’t miss each other at all. But we bumped into each other again at a random party. It wasn’t bad, just a bit stilted and awkward. We swapped texts, met for a coffee, one thing led to another, and here we are, back together again, stronger than ever and we’ve actually gone and produced our first book!
Like a proud mamma, I’m excited, I’m convinced it’s the bees knees and I’m also completely and utterly terrified of sending my baby out into the big bad world all by itself. Even though I know it’ll cope, I worry. Will it find its way easily or will it stumble and falter first? And so with heart-a-fluttering and knees-a-knocking, here it is – ‘Coping with the Horroffice’ – I hope it brings you some sanity, a shoulder to lean on and a little laughter and joy.”
