Even the most effective lumberjacks stop to sharpen their axes before they become blunt.

I have noticed through coaching, people discover that there is more in them than they thought. Couple this with the skills, capabilities and confidence to challenge the process and success is hard to stifle in any organisation.

Whether you’re already in a leadership position or have the desire to be there I can assist you on your journey. We all have behaviours which at times can hinder us. I help you see how to use these more positively. With more focus on our strengths and underused capabilities, anything is possible. When we discover our self-belief we start to value ourselves. This is when we start to see ourselves for what we are and appreciate the reason we do what we do.

I was a Military Officer for 16 years and for the last 17 years have worked extensively in training and personal development. Executive coaching is my forte which is enhanced by my ability to back up concepts with evidence. I have a very client focused ethos and feedback says that I am flexible and willingly focus time on the challenges in hand.

A key strength has been my exposure to a diversity of organisational cultures across an array of business sectors. I have experience working from board level to customer focused front line roles. As a Royal Navy engineer, I have worked from ships’ engine rooms to shore support in Hong Kong, to Buckingham Palace, managing people at all levels from young mechanics to a Head of State.

As an Engineer, I know technology, society and business will continue to change faster. Those who adapt quickest will probably survive, those who hope for magic could be disappointed.
