Tricia Coates is an experienced finance professional with over 25 years’ experience in the financial services sector in predominantly in the City of London. Coming from an IT background, she has been involved in a number of highly complex, global transformation programmes. She currently provides economic and commercial analysis and advice on the financial impact of change initiatives and commercial decisions to board level. She qualified as an account late in her career mainly to add professional kudos to her knowledge and experience when dealing with finance institutions in the City. She is an advocate of lifelong learning and mentoring for all and has recently taken a life coaching course. She sings (with mediocrity) in a large choir and likes taking her dog (and her husband) away in her campervan.
