I am currently MD of a company called Skills for Business. Our main focus is to help business owners and individuals develop and grow both personally and in business. We use a combination of coaching and consulting tools, plus NLP and an amazing tool that not only measures individual motivation and performance, but also works to align motivation to that of the business so everyone wins.
My background is in the Leisure industry, where I have worked in the public, corporate, commercial and private sectors at senior management level.
Of particular note was my time with Fitness First Plc, - a company that grew from one club on the south coast of England to become the largest independent health club chains in the world – and all within seven years.
In addition I have won many outstanding achievement awards in business. I have attained 12 national coaching-body awards and spent time becoming a Master trainer of NLP with the best in the world (Richard Bandler, its founder, Paul McKenna, Michael Breen and more recently John Seymour.
I am a qualified performance coach with Newcastle College and have a DMS from the highly regarded Henley Management School.
More recently, and prior to setting up Skills for Business, I spent some 3 years with International
coaching giant Shirlaws during their formative years in the UK.
