What makes me different from other business coaches and career coaches?
- 14 years plus coaching businesses to grow and individuals to improve or change their career + 18 years in the private sector; i don't just know how to coach, i know how to apply coaching to commercial "real world" situations. Turning coaching theory into practical help.
- I charge less than most similarly experienced coaches; Why? My corporate coaching supports my work with Starts Ups, SME's and Private Clients; I believe coaching should be much more widely available.
- Accredited Professional Coach with the UK Association for Coaches, member of the European Mentoring & Coaching Council & the Trusted Coaches Directory

"Ian helped me make a positive jump forward in many areas. I felt very motivated after each session and was able to clear the paths and make things happen. I have since recomended Ian to several friends and colleagues who also had a very positive outcome. Ian has a no BS approach and is very real and will challenge you in a positive way. At the time I was MD of an international nutrition business Juice Plus."

"I have landed a fantastic job with Land Securities as Retail Consumer Insight Manager. This is very much down to your assistance and I am looking forward to starting at the beginning of July.
Your help with assessing what I want from my next role, and the kind of work culture I am looking for has been invaluable so thanks a million. I turned down three other roles, all of which I would have all been tempted by until you helped me realise exactly what i want."
Thanks again, DH. May 2017
“I contacted Ian a few months into a big promotion. I was stressed and struggling with confidence. In the very first session i finally got clarity on where i was going wrong. He made me see I was still in ‘manager’ mode. I wasn’t being a ‘leader’ whatever that was, I didn’t really know being uncomfortably honest.
With Ian’s support and advice he got me acting and thinking like a leader. My confidence has soared and I’ve stopped hiding behind my computer screen thinking, “I’m going to get found out”. Seriously, get in touch with him, you won’t regret it”. Dan Hopkins, Director/IT Consultant
"When I first hired Ian, I had never used the services of a coach before. I was really surprised at how much I got from his sessions and his highly personable, targeted and knowledgeable techniques definitely brought the best out of me.
He is incredibly easy to talk to and he has a knack of putting people at ease immediately. He also gets results. A very good bloke that knows his stuff! Rax Lakhani Head of Social Media
"Ian is a fantastic coach offering practical ideas with an approachable manner. He is an excellent listener who enables you to get to the heart of the topic you’re discussing and to draw out your true feelings. His wealth of experience makes him trustworthy and gives you the feeling that you’re in good hands.
During our sessions he offered very sensible advice and gave me positive, achievable projects to work on between sessions. I felt comfortable discussing many aspects of my life and career with Ian and found that our sessions flowed easily and always ended on a positive and empowering note.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, personable coach who will leave you feeling better-informed and up-beat about your life and career choices." Guy Kerr Community Coordinator at Jurassic Coast Trust
"In the span of 6 sessions (not including the very insightful introductory free session!) I changed my hopeless career, improved my health and outlook, understood my priorities and boundaries, lost weight, grew much needed confidence and became more emotionally intelligent and more business savvy than I have ever been. To top it of I now know the secret to maintaining my new life. It certainly was not rocket science and it was not hardcore discipline that changed my lifestyle and choices.
For someone who has never changed much and accepted everything to be the way it is (the old me): the change life coaching brought to my life is immeasurable. Thanks Ian" Natasha Yazdabad Managing Director , IDTA
"Ian was a great help to me. Coaching put some perspective back in to my life. Before, I had found difficulty in focusing but by using some simple tools I have improved this area in my life greatly. I also managed not to feel guilty when I’m not working therefore creating & enjoying more family time.
Coaching with Ian was a experience I would highly recommend to everyone." Deepak Kapoor Restaurateur
"I started seeing Ian at a time when I was unclear what my future career direction should be and I was feeling that I was not reaching my potential in the job I was currently doing.
Ian gave me the space to step back from my current situation and evaluate my values and beliefs and then helped me clarify what it was that would most fulfil me personally in the future.
We then worked on a plan to achieve my career goals. Ian was supportive and objective throughout and within a surprisingly short space of time I moved to a new role, am much happier as a result, and have real clarity about my career path." Tom Guliver Commerical Insight at Hovis
"Ian helped me with the transition from working for a bank into setting up my own company to offer aviation financial services to the industry. Ian’s help was invaluable to me in this transition. He is calm, knowledgeable and reasoned. He allowed my ideas to flourish instead of pushing his own, but was relentless in helping me to think through what I needed to do if I were to achieve my goals and to ensure I did what I needed to do to progress towards those goals.
I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Ian to anyone seeking a career transition, but unsure how to get there." Chris Leeds CEO, Aviation Finance Solutions Ltd
Training, qualifications & experience
Coaching is more than going on a coaching course, (even the best!) you also need to have 'been around the block', dug yourself out of difficult situations and come through it stronger, wiser. You should have had commercial or corporate experience if you want to coach in that field.
In short, a big dose of life experience in and out of the work place to empathise and understand a client's situation from the inside out.

"When I began considering and pursuing a career change about a year and a half ago, I found the experience daunting and was unsure where to begin. It was then that I began working with Ian. In this time, he has been an invaluable resource and support.
Ian provided much needed structure to an otherwise overwhelming process, helping to define clear, small steps that amounted to big results. He ensured that I maintained momentum and focus in my efforts, and helped me to improve my approach when encountering the inevitable stumbling blocks along the way. Above all, he kept me accountable and honest about my true priorities and objectives while offering unbiased listening and advice.
Throughout my time working with Ian, he has been fully committed to enabling me to achieve my goals. He is responsive, engaging, and intuitive.
