Milda Zinkus

Milda draws on over twenty years of experience working with organisations like Unilever, Northern Foods and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Across all of her roles, there has been one thing in common; they’ve demanded a high degree of professional knowledge within HR.

Clients describe Milda as optimistic, committed and, if they’ve paid enough close attention, a lover of stationery. But most of all, they describe her as honest. So honest in fact, she’s been known to share too much in her workshops without regretting a word of it. Fortunately and consistently, clients value her straight talking, non-judgemental approach. Always offering up a challenge, she balances experience with theory, big picture thinking with attention to detail, and the importance of paying attention to the individual within the whole organisational system.

Sure, she knows what she’s doing when it comes to leadership development, organisational change, and acquisitions and business integrations. But more than anything, her speciality is supporting individuals and organisations through change. And so it should be. She holds has a Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching with the Academy of Executive coaching, is a qualified MBTI practitioner and holds an MSc in Organisational Behaviour from Birkbeck College, University of London.

Across Barclays, HSBC, BBC, Lloyds Banking Group, Rape Crisis Scotland and City of Edinburgh Council, to name just a few clients, Milda’s goal has been to encourage conversations that lead to change. This could be because all of her professional life, and most of her personal life, has oriented around change; how to make it, improve it, apply it, engage it and build on it.

“I believe that by enabling effective conversations, it is possible to create healthy working relationships and deliver real results. Through challenging and supportive conversations, people increase their self-awareness and build on their strengths to develop their capabilities”.
