Mentoring and Coaching

on a 1-2-1 basis or a team basis also works well. The goal is to boost results whilst nurturing a new skill set.  Working closely with a client like this, ensures the client actually delivers the results, with me looking over their shoulder until we get the job done.  I’ve been invited by the UK government’s BIS Growth Accelerator Scheme to coach high growth businesses.


These businesses also qualify for some grants if they meet the criteria which include:

  • having less than £40m turnover
  • less than 249 staff
  • self-owned (or at least 75%)
  • English registered
  • currently profitable with some growth
  • potential growth of 20% pa
  • have not received leadership Development funding before

If you fit these criteria contact me or by phone 0044 (0) 20 8567 4659

If you don’t fit these criteria, but need some mentoring, coaching or even training, contact me anyway (I won’t be able to get you  Growth Accelerator funding but I will be able to help you boost your skill sets and ultimately boost results).
