Harriet Waley-Cohen

Leadership and Health Coach

Harriet Waley-Cohen has empowered thousands of people over the last 17 years to believe in themselves and their potential.

She has been through multiple transformations herself and knows what it takes to make deep rooted changes that stick, and to get through tough times and come out the other side stronger and wiser than ever. Harriet is 18 years in recovery from addictions, left an unhappy marriage and went on to thrive, shifted from a 10-year banking career into motherhood and entrepreneurship, lives with a permanent pain condition after being driven into on the motorway in 2016, and is a recent breast cancer survivor.

Harriet’s mission is to make sure people know their true value. She empowers her clients and audiences to leave behind self-doubt, disempowering patterns and overwhelm in favour of new ways of thinking, feeling and acting that create confidence, wellbeing and success. She is described by Vanessa Vallely OBE, MD of WeAreThe City as ‘a real superwoman who empowers others wherever she goes.’

Harriet was one of our speakers at WeAreFutureLeaders, a conference that supports the next generation of female talent. Harriet’s talk was exceptionally well received by all our guests, the feedback was nothing short of amazing. Harriet has this wonderful ability that allows people to show their vulnerabilities and in turn be their most authentic selves. She is a wonderfully inspiring speaker who I have no hesitation in recommending. A real super woman who empowers others wherever she goes.


I attended Harriet’s resilience talk and found it inspirational and insightful, along with having some great ideas for different ways to think. It was also wonderful that Harriet not only spoke from educated knowledge but also and perhaps more valuably, personal experience. As a current employee, long-time people leader and someone with my own experiences of the trials and tribulations of life I found Harriet’s talk really wonderful!.

Rolls Royce

Harriet is an amazing speaker; her energy, vulnerability, presence and heart-felt delivery kept the audience fully engaged. I could see and feel the audience connecting with her and her message; I know from feedback that Harriet’s talk changed many people’s mindset and helped them to grow. As the organiser of a regular multi-speaker event, this is exactly what I want from speakers and for my audience.


Harriet is a pleasure to work with as a speaker. As someone who works with over 100 different speakers every year, Harriet is one of my favourites and she never disappoints. She is very professional and captivates the audience with ease. Having had Harriet speak at my events on many occasions, I look forward to working with her again in the future. I highly recommend her for all speaking events.
