Lou Banks has nurtured business talent at all levels to drive real cultural change in the workplace.
Her extensive experience in L&D from her previous roles within retail and senior care, as well as a real passion for self-development and learning, led to the birth of her first business Bolt from the You in 2009, before making the transition in 2017 to her new brand Rising Vibe.
Lou supports the individual, team or entire organisation by working with the person not the sector or role. She’s a change enabler, challenging mindset to enhance performance, balancing soft skills with a heavy dose of reality.
Lou has brought her unique coaching philosophy to clients across a range of sectors from airlines, agencies and retail organisations to pharmaceutical, social housing and senior healthcare.
When Lou isn’t shifting mindset and transforming organisations, she’s both a social butterfly and a full time Mum. In the evenings, you might find her out with the girls, pumping iron in a circuit class, or walking her puppy Arnold when she fancies a breath of fresh air.
