Leading your own business takes many skills. Vision to lead; financial understanding to make profit; people skills to manage effectively; relationship skills to build your client base.
Some of these skills will come naturally to you. Others may feel more challenging. That’s where I come in.
I help you identify and develop the skill sets that would most improve your effectiveness as a leader.
Part of our work will be looking at your mindset, helping you find new behaviours and reactions to the people and challenges you face. Alongside this we will look at the commercial drivers in your business, examining how you sell, manage costs and plan for growth.
And throughout, our focus will remain the same: enabling you to run a business that is more profitable, enjoyable and personally satisfying for you.

I bring a unique mix of commercial, emotional and people skills to your business. I have over 7 years experience as a coach, have delivered in excess of 2,000 hours of coaching and am highly versed in helping companies investigate and work through personal and team challenges. I have also been a manager at Deloitte, a finance director to a small business and co-run an accounting practice serving 100 entrepreneurial clients.
By combining these two skill sets, I help you improve your personal effectiveness and run a more enjoyable and profitable business.
