About

Hi, I’m Lara Brockie

I have over 20 years industry experience as a Consultant and Project Manager, working with entrepreneurs, small businesses and some of the largest companies in the world, and I understand what it is like to have to worry about running your business as well as working in your business.

My project experience ranges from large scale multi-million pound international projects to small startups and solo entrepreneurs. I also have significant experience in managing third party contractors and remote project teams.

I started my career as a software engineer, and then spent 9 years as an IT Service Management Consultant in London. I returned to Scotland and set up Lara Brockie Consulting Limited in 2005, where I provided Change and Project Management services to international financial services institutions.

I qualified as a Certified Professional Coach in 2010 and built my own coaching business in 2015 while also learning the principles of online marketing. I enjoyed this work so much that I became professionally trained in online marketing and business support and have since been successful in assisting other businesses with their online marketing.

I have a Masters Degree in Computer Science from the University of Dundee, and a Diploma in Management from Henley Business School.

  • Certified ITIL V3 Expert – 2009
  • Certified Professional Coach – 2010

Lara has been an integral part in the on-going process of building and marketing my digital course over the last few months. Her relentless dedication to making sure all aspects of the project were completed in a timely and professional manner, allowed us to have a successful launch.

She is the person you want on your corner not only for her valuable skill sets, but also for her proactive approach to every task given to her. She continuously provided welcomed recommendations and insights that were priceless to the overall project. Lara is a valuable member of our team and I would not hesitate to recommend her to my other entrepreneur friends.

I engaged Lara Brockie after a recommendation from a colleague because the critical elements website was outdated, very slow to load and my clients couldn’t find it.

It required a redesign and new hosting so that I could advertise my services and distribute my videos to my international client base.

Lara helped me by moving the website to a new hosting platform, producing a full review of the site and providing recommendations to improve it. She then implemented the recommendations by redesigning the website and reusing my existing content where possible.

The result was a completely redesigned, responsive website, that I am proud to show my clients. The website is very professional and engaging, looks really polished and creates a very positive impression.

One thing I liked was her friendly, supportive, non-technical approach to the whole process. She kept me updated on progress and proactively suggested new ideas to improve my site, content and delivery of videos and resources.

I found the experience a pleasure. Lara is easy to work with and goes out of her way to make sure she delivers a top-notch service.

I am very happy with my new website and I would recommend Lara to any non-technical coaches and consultants who need a professional website redesign service and want to feel that they are in safe hands.
