Our Vision & Approach
We understand and respect your challenges as business owners and leaders, and want to help because we strongly believe that your success matters. Growing businesses create opportunities that reach far beyond their owners and employees.
We feel equipped to do so because we have worn many hats and tackled the challenges they present: business founder, owner, investor, leader, employee, coachee, business consultant, executive coach and business coach.
Whilst the client testimonials that you will find on this website matter most to us, and perhaps to you, our advanced qualifications and independent accreditation also attest to the quality of our coaching and content.
Many of the entrepreneurs we meet are either struggling against, or giving in to the gravitational pull of day to day operations. As expectations from customers, employees and even government ratchet endlessly upwards, it is understandable that their focus gets pulled towards the demands immediately in front of them: Client expectations, staff morale, GDPR. So why should we care about, let alone invest in purpose?
