Read what executive clients are saying:


I accepted the role of COO last week…

You provided resume writing and executive coaching for me and we identified that a Chief Operating Officer role would be a perfect fit for my skills. The potential of that seemed very remote at the time. 

You taught me the importance of networking and over the years while working that lateral position, I maintained great connections, got involved with a few Boards, and kept my LinkedIn up to date. As a result of that networking, I was the top candidate for a Chief Operating Officer position for a local, highly respected non-profit organization. Literally, the position opened, I was sought out, I had the right relationships built and the respect of my peers— everything has been a right fit!
I accepted the role of COO last week and will begin in April. I wanted to let you know that the things you taught me had a very lasting impact both for me and other young people I have mentored since then. I have seen continual returns as a result of seeking out your coaching and implementing your suggestions. Continue your great work! – I. Bellamy, COO

Thanks for helping me understand my brand and the power that comes with this discovery…

This has allowed me to unlock so many opportunities over the past year, including lucrative consultancy and speaking opportunities at leading global conferences as far as Sydney, Australia and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I was successful at an offer but was bold enough to turn the opportunity down as the culture of the company was not aligned to my brand and core values. Yes a bold step, but one I am more comfortable making now since your support has made me a more mature corporate executive with a clear understanding of my identity. Thanks for the invaluable support you have given, boost to my career and unlocking my true potential. – J. Thomas, VP, Finance


She helped me clarify exactly what I wanted and valued in a career…

I believe working with Abby was the keystone to helping me find the right position.With her help and focus I was able to find a position within two months of beginning my search. Thanks Abby for setting up for success in taking my career to the next level. – R. Alexander, Director


It was amazing that Abby helped me know myself and the path I’d like to take in the future, too…

I found Abby on the internet, when I was looking for someone to help me describe my career in the past 20 years. In fact, I was actually looking for someone to help me describe “me” – what make me tick, what my motivations are, what I enjoy doing.

We live in the opposite sides of the world, and have never met in person. We had several 1:1 sessions via phone and video con. Abby has strong discipline, persistence, and huge capacity and tenacity to take in all details from the past and turn them into insights about a person. Together we worked out what best described me, especially the value I bring to organizations/ companies. – W. Assoratgoon, Managing Director (Thailand)


I couldn’t be more pleased with Abby’s services…

Despite my work helping others identify their career bliss, I don’t think resume writing is my greatest strength, so wanted to turn to someone with great expertise and experience in this area. Abby was referred to me and I knew from our first conversation that she was the one to help me.

Between the detailed intake questions and our 2-hour coaching call, Abby was able to glean the top characteristics and qualifications to highlight in my professional brand. The final product was a resume and LinkedIn profile that embodies everything I’m most proud of professionally and how I want to be known by others that seek to know more about my professional career. I couldn’t be more pleased with Abby’s services! – A. Robinson, Senior Managing Director


She has my highest recommendation…

I highly recommend anyone interested in career or executive development work with Abby. She is the consummate professional, skilled in coaching and the use of powerful questions to help you think through and systematically identify strengths and professional accomplishments. She is easy to work with and always made herself available despite us being in different time zones. – S. Pinderhughes, Chief Medical Officer

Abby is a gifted writer, and has a unique and affable approach to her work…

After 30-plus years since creating my first professional resume, I reached out to Abby for assistance with my executive brand. She is much more than a resume writer as she provides me with insightful tools to recollect and chronicle my entire career history and related accomplishment. I found her efforts to be highly effective as she crafted a highly developed, creative resume that was in line with my career target. Her cover letters helped to present me to employers and recruiters in a professional and succinct way.

The resume and coaching services I received from Abby Locke were excellent…

After working with her within two weeks, I had two exciting job offers in hand. I was able to negotiate with both employers from a position of strength because my accomplishments and value were clearly articulated.

In fact, one employer complimented my resume several times — thanking me for making her job easier. – F. Russell, Director of Product Marketing


It was well worth the investment…

I cannot begin to express my gratitude to you for doing an excellent job on my resume. Before working with you, I was sending out tons of resumes and while I knew I was qualified, I was simply not getting any interviews. Within one week after completing my new resume with you, I immediately started getting call backs from recruiters and hiring managers for senior technology management positions.

I just wanted to let you know that I accepted a new position as the Director of Technology Management at a $30 billion-dollar company with a $150K increase in my annual compensation. – B. Kuttala, Technology Executive
