About me

I help executives and rising leaders prepare for and navigate through transitions

"I have some coaching with Paul recently and he was really great in helping me get some fresh perspective on what is important to me and to articulate a clear vision for near future in my chosen area. He guided me step by step through the actions I can take to get closer to that goal and this has led to me feeling more focused and content. Paul is a great listener and able to focus the conversation and find patterns and threads in what I have said which can really help in crystallising intangible ideas".

How coaching can help you: If you have an area of your life where you know you would like to make an important difference then working with a coach can help. By working in partnership with a coach you can develop the clarity and awareness you need, along with practical steps and strategies, to move forward toward sustainable success.

How I work with clients: As a coach, my role is to help you define your view of success and the steps you want to take on the road to achieving it.

I am calm, pragmatic, challenging, compassionate and fully committed to supporting your achievement of your goals. I'll ask you to be open and ready to stretch yourself.

During our first session the priority is to get know each other, set clear expectations and ensure we both feel that we can work together on what you want to achieve.

Typically, after a first session we would have further six sessions over a period of three to six months. What you want to achieve and how we work can be customised based on what we agree in our first session.

Training, qualifications & experience

With over 20 years of experience in the market research sector, I have developed a unique blend of business operations knowledge and skills. I have consistently applied these to help organisations, teams and individuals to find new ways of working and thinking to make measurable improvements to performance.

I spent the last 10 years as Global Chief Operating Officer on the management team of a high performing organisation. In this role, I have been dedicated to coaching and mentoring a team of global operations leaders to help them achieve business and personal goals.

I have a passion for participation in sport from which I have learnt a lot about how people can stretch themselves to improve performance and achieve their goals.

I have successfully completed a Diploma In Professional Coaching Practice with Full Circle Development Limited, I am a member of the ICF at the ACC level.


The first session is free and it is an opportunity to understand what you want to achieve from the coaching relationship and ensure we feel we will be able to work together. Fees for future sessions would be set based on what we agree at that first session and discounted for a block of sessions.
