Why work with us?


Dr Jessica Moore-Jones



Unlike many companies who add leadership development as an afterthought to their profitability or process driven missions, Unleashed Coaching and Consulting is first and foremost about people.


Unleashed Coaching and Consulting provides a rare combination of knowing what it's like out there and understanding how to overcome it.

Beyond a veterinary degree, we bring the knowledge and experience acquired through further qualifications in business administration, wildlife conservation, behavioural economics and training and assessment. We have advised local governments in full time and consultancy roles, have experience as Executive Manager and CEO of major animal welfare organisations, and have strong experience on Boards and in leadership roles locally and in developing countries. We also commit to continuing to do the veterinary shifts to ensure we still have a finger on the pulse of how it feels to be on the ground.

We would love to hear your story, understand what is missing in your life or organisation, and help you and your team become the best you can be.
