Davina Ripton

Change might seem overwhelming at first, but learning to make it work for you can have a huge impact on your life, career and business.

My experience


I have 20 years experience working with businesses across various sectors as an employee, consultant or coach and have managed teams across multiple business functions.

I have experience leading and delivering successful change initiatives to launch new products, introduce new technology, change processes and restructure business units. I’m a qualified change management practitioner and ICF accredited personal and business coach.

Today I combine my coaching, change management and commercial experience to offer you fresh perspectives, actionable insights, supportive coaching and practical tools. Everything you need to take control, plan, navigate and succeed through periods of change - whether that's at home or work. If you'd like to work with me, get in touch!

Change Ready’s Mission

I created the Change Ready coaching and training programmes to equip as many people as possible with the skills and confidence they need to make meaningful changes at home and work.

My aim is for everyone to experience the positive side of change: where you have clarity and focus, the confidence and skills to achieve challenging goals, the surge of adrenaline as you 'feel the fear but do it anyway', and a sense of achievement when your comfort zone grows a little bigger (again!). It's exhilarating, empowering and a little bit addictive.

Change Ready’s values:  

Collaborate, Inspire, Empower

Change Specialist

Every individual and business is unique, so there's no 'one size fits all' when it comes to change.  I draw on a wide range of models, tools and techniques, which I'll adapt to your specific situation, and I continue to add to my toolkit through lifelong learning. I'm fortunate to have trained with some of the UK's leading coaches, including Kim Morgan, John Whittington, Carmel Fell, Amy Brann, John Perry, Simon Machin and Diane Jones.

I'm also a qualified Project Manager, Change Manager, licensed Grief Recovery Specialist and an active member of the International Coaching Federation and Change Management Institute for organisational change, and work within their professional codes of conduct.

It's not all work!

It's important to get the work-life balance right, so in my spare time I enjoy getting outdoors and doing some trail running. This has taught me so much about myself, life and business. I also enjoy cycling, growing veg, good food and travel. You can find out more about all that in my blogs.
