Meet our Trustees: Vicky Poole

Connect Reading Trustee Vicky Poole

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.

You can connect with Vicky on LinkedIn and you’ll probably meet her if you come along to one of our events! Thank you Vicky, we love having you as part of the Connect Reading team!
