Helping Business Owners and Executives reach their full potential.
I have had the privilege of being a Business Coach for the past 12 years, and in that time I have helped many business owners and executives grow both their business and themselves as leaders.
I see small business from a big business perspective, because every big business started out as a small business. I walk with you on your journey, bridging the gap between where you are today and where you want to get to by providing practical solutions and frameworks to help you find your own answers. With me as your coach, and your resolution to grow and learn, I give you these promises:
- You will grow in confidence and have a renewed passion for your business.
- You will develop management and leadership skills so your team will deliver great results.
- You will have renewed energy, confidence and passion for your business.
- You will have the ability to spend time away from your business and have the peace of mind it's in safe hands.
- You will have increased sales and profits, plus a team empowered and aligned with your vision.
- You will have the skills and tools to get your company working so you don't have to
- You will have the life you want for yourself and your family
Big promises, but with the right attitude, plenty of learning, application and coaching.... it's all achievable. You may think that it's embarrasing and a sign of weakness to have a coach, on the contrary, in having a coach it is a statement that you want to improve and grow yourself, your business and your team.

Get started on taking your business to another level.
A Business Coach is better than a consultant for many reasons. With years of successful experience that can provide valuable insight, your Business Coach will help you develop long-term and short term goals and strategies, as well as improve your business in areas that you might have overlooked. You may be able to survive in business without the help of a Coach, but it's almost impossible to thrive...

When we have to face the tides of radical times, it is the visionary leader who emerges as our hero and carries us out of the swirling mass of problems at hand. Visionary leaders have the talent to view the problem from a broad perspective and devise strategies which serve as solutions to all issues….
I think about businesses as being in a season – spring, summer, autumn or winter. I help you identify which season you are currently in and the actions you need to take to get to summer – where things are lighter, brighter and more profitable.
I love working with all sizes and shapes of business. If you run an established business or are an executive, I can help ambitious business leaders and their teams catapult their success to the next level, building profitable businesses and high-performing teams.
If you are a sole trader or run a micro-business I bring a proven 6 Steps Framework Solution which can be tailored to your individual needs of you and your business. This approach will save you time, stress, energy and money. Things feel easier and you will have more time so you can do the things you want to do, not only the things you have to do.
In a former life I have experienced several seasons as a qualified accountant, supporter to an entrepreneur and been an international executive. I led a turn-around of a car wholesale and distribution management buyout which added £1M in shareholder value in four years, and successfully sold it for £1M. This led to a two year Board Level experience with the Maccess Group (T.O. £80M).
I supported an internet start-up in Bradford and was part of a team that raised funds (£30M) via an Initial Public Offering (IPO).
As commercial accountant at Adidas Sportswear I was the Buying Controller/Commercial Accountant and increased gross margins by 2% and improved cash flow by £1M by improving stock and debtor management. I’ve also been the Chief Financial Officer for a Nasdaq-quoted company where I worked with board members that included a Government minister and US ambassador.
As you can see, it’s fair to say that I’ve been there and done that in the corporate world, and my first-hand experience means I can empathise with your challenges.
In 2003 I took that experience, my zeal and my energy and became Yorkshire’s original ActionCOACH supporting a wide range of businesses. I’m now the longest-serving ActionCOACH in England and also coach and train other ActionCOACHES and am an International Trainer of Business Coaches.
I’m a leadership, financial, sales and management specialist, a hockey player, keen cyclist and piano enthusiast
