We love our Connect Reading Trustees and we wanted to give you a chance to get to know them too.
Vicky Poole is a coach who helps people reconcile their past and deal with their hang-ups so they can create a future of their wildest dreams. After 15 years in corporate and strategic sales in both Telecoms and IT, Vicky has launched her own business as a transformation and growth coach. When Vicky is not working, she is running her local sustainable website, Sustainable Burghfield, walking and tending to her re-wilded allotment plot.
We asked Vicky a few questions to get to know her better and find out a bit more about why she became a part of Connect Reading.
Why did you decide to become part of Connect Reading?
I wanted to make a difference to my local area.
What is one thing you love about Reading?
It’s the one place that ever really felt like home. I love the proximity to London, the buzz of being in a large town and that I’m only ever a short drive away from untouched wilderness.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
As a Mum of a toddler, any free time is spent sleeping!
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Determined, honest, loyal.
What’s one thing you’ve learned about yourself during the pandemic?
I’m a closet introvert.
And finally, what in your life is bringing you joy right now?
I am so passionate about the people I coach. I get a really buzz from helping people to overcome their blocks, see things differently and make an impact on the lives of others.
