Sonya Homewood - Founder

Sonya Homewood



I’m Sonya Homewood and the founder of Pebble People Development. I’ve been passionate about the development of people for my whole career. And I love helping people and teams develop themselves to achieve their ambitions and solve problems.  Avoiding the cookie cutter approach, all of our solutions here at Pebble People Development are bespoke to ensure every client achieves the outcome they want to.
I live in Cheshire with my hubby and two spaniels, have four children and three grandchildren, and when not working, I generally just try to appreciate people and the world around me!  

My Story

With over 35 years of experience in leadership roles within the financial services industry, I’ve always had a passion for developing people and teams. My last corporate role was as Chief Operating Officer for a large UK Corporate, where I developed many high performing teams and worked with individuals to help them secure promotions into senior and executive roles.


​In 2020, I made a career move to focus on what I love the most - the development of people and businesses. As such, I offer a range of services, including executive coaching, board advising, Insights Discovery partnership, Lego Serious Play workshops, and leadership development. ​


As an accredited coach by the Academy of Executive Coaching, (AoEC), I support individuals with high potential/talent or board members, including CEOs, to explore the possibilities and potential of their career and self-development, address challenges or solve problems. I also work with teams and offer team coaching to help with specific issues. ​


As a board advisor/trustee, I advise the executive boards of start-ups and scale-ups, businesses going through growth or experiencing significant change on their overall strategy, people development and culture plans, organisational design, and business operations. I currently sit on three boards and am a trustee for a large charity.

As an Insights Discovery partner, I offer evaluators and profile generation for individuals and teams and conduct workshops and individual coaching sessions to businesses across all industries. I can also support organisations if they wish to be accredited to deliver Insights Discovery themselves.


​I’m an advanced LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Facilitator, using this creative tool to help teams and individuals think differently and collaborate more effectively.


​With my extensive experience of working with and developing high performing teams, I also design and deliver bespoke leadership programmes.
