Planned Ascent Why Us

Why Planned Ascent

We understand and respect your challenges because we have faced similar ones ourselves.

Our vision is that you will be growing your business with speed, agility and resilience towards the outcomes you want.

Our Beliefs & Experience

We understand and respect your challenges as business owners and leaders, and want to help because we believe strongly 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. 

Your Experience

Your experience will be unique in some respects, whereas other challenges you face will be common to businesses at a similar stage. The most effective way of working will blend your knowledge and experience with ours, and perhaps with third parties’, to develop solutions that are right for you and your business.

Your Decision

Your decision criteria and their relative importance will be personal to you. This website will help you find out what’s most important for you, and more.

It contains information and tools to help you assess the fit between your needs and our services.

If a fit seems likely, the most effective way to address your decision will be for us to talk, and then meet. All else being equal, we will then be pleased to introduce you to Clients who have worked with Planned Ascent already, so you can hear directly from them about their experience.


Typically, we find that potential clients want to know about:

  • Capability - can we do what we say we do?
  • Chemistry - does it feel to both parties like a relationship they want to enter into?

  • Content - will this be tailored to your needs and business context?

Once these questions are satisfied:

  • Value for money - does the anticipated return and service warrant your investment?


We recommend you look at the section: ‘The Route to Relationship’, which sets out a pathway to help you evaluate quickly if Planned Ascent is a good fit with your requirements.

Or if it’s easier, just fill in the form or pick up the phone and we’ll be delighted to talk to you.

Work Style

Three features characterise the Planned Ascent way of working:



We blend coaching and consulting to best suit you, and enrich both with proven business tools and ideas drawn from a wide variety of sources; including our Trusted Circle.



We offer and ask for complete commitment to our work together, including a willingness to challenge and be challenged and acceptance of our respective accountability for outcomes.



We expect that the solutions we develop will flow from ideas, methods and resources contributed by both of us.


Our work is backed by a triple guarantee:

1. You are free to walk away at any time
2. Payment will always follow delivery
3. The quality of our work is assured: independent accreditation every 2 years ensures we meet the standards demanded by leading employers & professional institutes.

Our Trusted Circle

Trusted Circle

Planned Ascent collaborates with trusted others to fulfil its purpose. Ideas and resources that equip people and businesses for growth can and should come from a host of sources.

Our Trusted Circle is made up of people in whom we have absolute confidence; in their integrity, values and professional competence.

They represent an eclectic mix of skills and experience relevant to equipping people and  businesses for growth, and we recommend them to you without hesitation.

In this section we introduce them to you in our own words; and invite you to connect with them and explore what they have to offer using the links available.

This is a network founded on trust and goodwill - there are no commissions involved at any stage.

Referral Reward

Referral Rewards

There is no greater reward for Planned Ascent than when a Client or third party refers us.

As a heartfelt thank-you, we will reward you back with a free day’s coaching (or a free session if we are working 1:1) whenever a new prospective Client signs up to an engagement with Planned Ascent, following a referral from you.

Please feel free to ask us more about this - albeit there are no caveats, as you might expect!
