About Us

Managing Director Janine Roberts founded J9 Consulting & Executive Coaching in 2008.

Janine is an energetic, motivating and inspiring leadership coach and facilitator, specialises in developing high-performing teams and leaders. She goes above and beyond to deliver value to her clients. She is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Coaching and Mentoring with a focus on ‘helping leaders to work with interpersonal emotional dynamics’.

Her ability to inspire, develop and motivate others is driven from her extensive experience and credibility in designing, directing and delivering large-scale change programmes. These have included complex health and care systems in the UK, USA and Canada.

She also holds a Masters degree (with distinction) in behaviour change and coaching from Henley Business School.

What We Do

We are highly qualified experts in leadership coaching, training and facilitation of individuals and teams. We distinguish ourselves by our passion and drive to help people be the best they can be, realise their true potential and achieve high performance without compromising on what matters most in their lives.



Ultimately, we believe you can have it all: be a highly successful leader, part of a high-performing team and have a wonderful life. 

How We Do It

Change can be uncomfortable and exposes real personal vulnerabilities. We create a safe space for our clients to help them move beyond their comfort zone so they can explore and test new ways of being and working without judgment.

Who We Work With

We work with people that are striving to make a positive difference in the world, whether  they are working in healthcare, sports or value-based commercial organisations.


The people we work with recognise something needs to change. They are willing to explore their own behaviours with open curiosity, understand how they impact on their working relationships or the outcomes they are striving to achieve and are open to trying something different.
