Paula Gardner is a Business Psychologist and Executive Coach specialising in female leadership and visibility. Based in London, Paula has worked with women leaders all over the globe.


She has created her own leadership framework, Scarlet Thinking®  designed to enhance many of the strengths of female leadership. These include social connections, a sense of community, authenticity, the desire to leave a legacy, and ethical leadership.  She also has many years of experience in helping leaders embrace Visibility, an issue that often inspires ambivalence in many women leaders.


With a background that has included working in the music business, owning her own PR company, and working as a PR and marketing coach for literally thousands of business owners, Business Psychology was a mid-life career change for Paula.
