Ros Taylor CEO
Constantly in demand as a coach, speaker and leadership expert internationally, Ros Taylor is a renowned writer, author and presenter. She frequently appears on television and radio as the voice of corporate coaching. A highly respected academic and visiting professor at Strathclyde Business School, it’s not surprising that she was named one of the UK’s top ten corporate coaches by The Independent on Sunday.
Drawing on over 30 years’ experience as one of the UK’s leading psychologists, Ros devises programmes, workshops and courses that get tangible results for senior executives, management teams and the companies that employ them.
Extensive research including interviews with 80 of the FTSE 200’s top CEOs and her own instinctive business acumen mean Ros is uniquely placed to identify areas for improvement and implement practical and transforming solutions that really work.
She is hugely charismatic with a perceptive and empathetic approach to getting the very best out of people. It is this fundamental ethos of unlocking the potential of individuals and allowing them to flourish way beyond their expectations has become the backbone of RTC and everything the company stands for:
‘Confidence or the lack of it has been at the heart of every challenge I have seen in corporate life. That abrasive boss, the reticent colleague, the palpitations before a presentation, the reluctance to hire people better than you – they are all intimately bound up with confidence. The good news is that confidence is a learnable skill.’

Eileen Harris, Ph.D.
Dr Eileen Harris is a tutor, assessor and supervisor
Dr Eileen Harris has a Ph.D. in psychology. With over 8 years’ experience teaching and doing research at the University of Ottawa, her background is firmly in academia. During this time, her focus turned to the psychology of learning with an emphasis on the role of interpersonal communication in the learning process. As a result she started her own training and development company, which is still in operation today.
A former CEO, Eileen credits her time as an entrepreneur as the beginning of her coaching career. Having grown a start-up company into a successful firm that was bought by a large multinational corporation, many lessons in leadership were learned. “To get the best from your people, you have to inspire, not force.” A career in coaching was a natural progression.
Eileen was part of the first cohort who graduated from the Corporate Coach International coaching school and began coaching immediately. She has worked with CEOs and senior managers across a variety of sectors including pharmaceutical, insurance and manufacturing as well as MBA programmes.
Coaching in Canada, the USA and the UK, she was the lead coach for RTC USA.
Dr. Harris is now Director of Learning at Ros Taylor Company, but still continues to coach. Eileen loves to work with people and gets immense satisfaction from coaching. It is her belief that the needs of clients should drive business development in a very practical way.
