About Wendy Kerr
Business Coach and Mentor – Crossover From The Corporate World!
This Is My Story
I’m Wendy Kerr and I am passionate about changing the way work works. I’m on a mission to fuel 10,000 women to create a business that allows them to live the life they love!
With a 20-year career in multi-national blue chip organisations, I specialised in creating and launching new businesses around the world.
My business experience includes:
- Starting a digital content business in London, expanding it globally and acquiring 3 media companies
- General Manager of FT.com personal finance, leading the business and team of 120 through the dot-com crash and restructuring it for profitability
- Starting an online share trading site in Australia and listing it on the Australian stock exchange, raising $70 million at the start of the first dot-com boom in the ‘90s
A Corporate Crossover myself, I left my corporate career to create a successful 6 figure coaching and consulting business, running it from London and Tokyo. I’ve worked with leaders of high growth, global technology companies in challenging times of expansion and change. Some of the client companies I worked with include Expedia, IBM, and Betfair.
I have coached, mentored and fuelled over 1,500 women to create a business that allows them to live the life they love!
My company, Corporate Crossovers, enables women wherever they are in their journey, to leave their job and start a business successfully, providing them with structure, tools, processes and one-on-one mentoring.
We have a vibrant and dynamic community of Corporate Crossovers around the world who are focused on creating the life they want, providing even more support, ideas and advice for the journey!
But it wasn’t always like this…
In 2003, I moved to Tokyo with my husband. Try as I might, I was unable to get a corporate job so I retrained as a Coach and set up my business. Unwittingly, I became a Corporate Crossover. At first I felt isolated, overwhelmed by a never-ending to do list and questioned whether I would ever make a significant turnover.
Two years later I moved back to London and went through all the start-up pains again and in a much more competitive market. At times I wondered if the isolation, fear and hard work was all worth it. I even started to apply for jobs, thinking I should ‘get real’ and go back into corporate life.
I wasn’t thriving. On the face of it my business was successful but I had lost that spark, that passion…yes my momentum had gone. But in my heart I knew I wanted to keep my business.
I needed help; I needed assistance to get my momentum back. So I created a set of tools and daily success habits to get my business and life where I wanted it to be. Now, eight years later, my business is booming, life is balanced and I feel fulfilled, motivated and inspired!
Work with me and you will learn to think differently about the life you can create, and how having your own business would enable this.
I’m a frequent media commentator, and have been featured in:
- BBC Radio 4 Women’s Hour
- The Financial Times
- The Sunday Times
- Dubai Business Radio
- The Guardian
- The Japan Times
I have created and led the Start Your Own Business university programme with Pearson College. I am a best selling author with my two books; “Corporate Crossovers – when it’s time to leave the office and start your own business” and “My New Business – a busy women’s guide to start up success.”
