Cat Trebilco

I run my own business as an executive coach who helps women in career transition to discover the best next steps for their future.

After working in the corporate world for 5 years, I decided that life in banking was not for me. I qualified as a coach and went on my own journey of discovery too, deciding to follow my dreams and combine my two passions in life – being in nature and the mountains in order to help people. In 2014, I set up Reach the Peak, running walking-coaching retreats and helping women, through one-to-one coaching and retreats in the outdoors, to discover their own passion in life and find the confidence and courage to go for their dream career.

I also run expeditions around the world, having recently led a team of 12 schoolgirls to Cambodia, sleeping in hammocks in the jungle and working on community project at a local school. In October/November 2018, I led an expedition to Everest Base Camp, and having dealt with 2 emergency helicopter rescues and a number of team conflicts, I now run talks on Leadership Lessons from Everest Base Camp, aimed at corporate leaders. In 2017, I led 5 weeks of expeditions in the Arctic, leading teams of trekkers in temperatures of minus 27 degrees, camping on frozen lakes and pulling our kit in sleds behind us.

I have a degree in Psychology, the CIPD Diploma in Human Resource Development, I’m an accredited NLP Master Practitioner and qualified Summer Mountain Leader. I am also one of only a few women to hold the Winter Mountain Leader qualification, taking people on adventures in the wilderness of Scotland in all weathers.
