Michèle Down grew up and was educated in London, where she trained as a teacher before starting her own business in 1977. In 1980, she moved her family and business to Herefordshire, where the business developed and grew substantially until sold in the early ‘90s.
Deciding to change direction, she looked for - and found a different challenge. Having always been interested in people, Michèle trained as a psychotherapist and subsequently set up and ran a busy counselling practise in Hereford, for ten years. During this time, missing the world of business, she became involved in corporate training and coaching and eventually decided to focus entirely on the business community, moving back to her roots, though from a different perspective.
With her fundamental understanding of people, business and good management practise, she runs Michèle Down Dynamics Ltd., a thriving management coaching and training business. This amalgamation of all her work experience, means she brings a unique understanding and expertise to her clients. She is passionate about her work and has an unusual ability to catalyse change within the heart of any organisation.
Michèle lives with her partner in Hereford and has two adult sons. When she is not working, she enjoys time with her partner, family and friends and divides her time between homes in England and France.
