About Guruyou

Up until a few years ago, founder of GuruYou™- Rebecca Mander, was Managing Director of global consumer goods company Smartwares. There, she led the UK subsidiary from a loss situation following the economic crisis into a £14m turnover company with her unique leadership style which has recently gained her a fellowship with the Institute of Leadership and Management. During her time in leadership, as well as professional challenges she alsoexperienced great personal hardship. Motivated by her experiences, she decided in 2014 to retrain at Warwick University and now coaches high calibre leaders forward during times of personal setback. 

Rebecca’s clients value her for her straightforward and honest approach and respect her own leadership style and incredible back story. Her 15-year experience at board level teamed with her accredited skills in executive coaching make a winning combination. Her approach is warm, empathetic and supportive of the client’s objectives at all times. Rebecca is encouraging and yet also understands the need to build resilience, develop new perspectives and better self-awareness to improve performance.
