In the early 2000's, Daniel and Jeanie Ough recognized the growing need to help individuals develop or change their careers. In response to his time as a career columnist, Daniel set up Sandpiper coaching in 2005. Having both enjoyed successful corporate careers, Daniel and Jeanie lent their expertise to the many professionals in UAE needing specialist career guidance.

I hired Sandpiper whilst I was looking to redefine my career direction and aspirations. I was particularly impressed their ability to challenge my train of thoughts and bring me to the next step of the plan we had agreed.
