Who are We?

Malarvilie Krishnasamy

CEO of MalCPD/ Co-Founder of The Coaching Collaborative

Hello, I'm Malarvilie, an experienced leadership consultant, coach, and trainer dedicated to empowering leaders and transforming cultures. With over 20 years in education, I bring expertise in coaching for positive change in schools.


Through accredited courses endorsed by The Institute of Leadership, I cultivate emotional intelligence and assertive leadership skills.


I prioritise equity, diversity, and inclusion, amplifying voices through workshops and speaking engagements.

Join me on this transformative journey to empower leaders and shape a brighter future. I'm here to guide you.


Rachel MacDonald

Co-Founder of The Coaching Collaborative

Through my work as a teacher and leader in the education sector, I have been enriched in countless ways. From this experience, I know firsthand the power of communication, connection and collaboration. Coaching is essential to the success of each of them.


Since 2008, I have dedicated myself to coaching teachers and leaders in all educational settings in multiple countries. Over the years I have honed my approach, drawing upon the principles of positive psychology and mental health. I firmly believe that coaching not only enhances professional development but ensures personal wellbeing. Using a holistic approach empowers individuals to thrive in both their personal and professional lives.
