Neil Williams - Career Coach, Business Mentor and Retirement Coach
Hi, I am Neil, an AC Accredited Coach of over 15 years, with extensive experience in careers and business. Coaching is an opportunity to take time out and reflect on where you are now and where you want to get to going forward. What is your own vision for the future, what are your values, and how important are they to you?
Having come from a business background and been made redundant three times in the past, I am able to offer my services with professionalism and empathy, working with you to find solutions to what you see as areas of priority and help you to achieve the results you require.
I offer a FREE chemistry call via telephone that will give you a chance to discuss your needs and ways that I may be able to help you. Please call or text me on 07970 225058 or click here to send me an email.
My career coaching helps you clarify what's right for you, through talking together and working through your existing position and future goals. Doing this will help you to understand yourself and your behavioural traits, analyse what you really enjoy doing and where you want to go with your career whether it's at the early stages, middle, or nearing the end of your current occupation.
Business Mentoring / Coaching
My coaching is fully focused on you, your business, and your teams. Together we will establish the specific change that’s required and pinpoint what you want to get from my coaching (or mentoring) to gain successful outcomes. You will be surprised how our first discussion together kickstarts you to make the necessary changes required. As an accredited coach, I have the depth of knowledge and experience in business to be able to understand your needs quickly and help you facilitate the important first steps. I am a business professional, very experienced in sales, sales management, operations and customer delivery. I have also been a Managing Director and I am a qualified Marketer and a trained coach who is action centred.
We would work together to see what your everyday work and life looks like in general and what you see your future retirement looks like. When I say you, I mean the collective you….wife/partner and family! What the retirement programme involves:
- Understanding yourself better, by reviewing what you enjoy doing.
- Assessing where you are now and where you want to get to be.
- Providing inspiration and support to make positive change and personal development.
- Understanding your “process for change” and for work, personal life, and beyond.
- Looking at creative ways to make change really happen.
- Starting to prepare for your retirement, even though it may be a few years off.
Where do the sessions take place?
I am a virtual coach and coach supervisor and it works really well, whether this is local further away in the UK, or internationally. I use Zoom and Skype. Normally in my dining room at home, however, I am happy to meet at a suitable venue in Tunbridge Wells, should this be required. We can normally find a suitable time during the week including evenings and Saturday mornings. I have also previously used Skype for clients in both Australia and Bermuda, so whatever suits you!

AC Accredited for Coaching Supervision.
Any professional Coach should have a Supervisor in order to help them continue to develop their skills and support them, and so serve their clients better.
A lot of my work with coaches is bespoke to your needs. I provide you with the opportunity to open your mind, create awareness of looking at what works and what doesn’t, and, of course, to gain further knowledge as a coach. We will consider your client(s) and the system and style you currently use; in doing so enabling you to have a broader view and become even more effective in the future. Remember, this coaching concentrates on your specific requirements;it enables you to rethink your coaching techniques, test your judgments,and address the challenges that face your clients, whether they are individuals, leaders, or managers. If you want to enhance your own coaching skills, I’m the person to contact.
What the program involves
- The opportunity to enhance your skills, gain support, reflect, and expand your insight.
- It is tailored for individual coaches and mentors, networks, or groups of coaches and mentors or companies with their own internal coaching or mentoring strategy.
- Sessions that are monthly, bi-monthly, or sporadically, whether face-to-face, over the telephone, the internet, or in group sessions.
My fees are affordable and vary whether they are face to face or by telephone/Skype. It is always good to talk this through on the telephone as there is normally a way that I can make this acceptable to you.
I have been focussing on coaching and supervision now for fifteen years and I concentrate in areas that I have experience in including career, retirement, business, and leadership coaching.
I have come from a business background, and I appreciate the impact of the highs and lows with 3 different forms of redundancy, and divorce. After 9 years of a portfolio career (including being a Sales Director, Non-Executive Director, and being an owner of my own coaching company) I am now focusing purely on my own business which I thoroughly enjoy.
I am action-centered and results orientated and therefore ideal for keeping people on track when they commit to change whether it be in career, life, or individual action plan. I am confident to challenge and I can also be very supportive. I have been through the various stages of career development, stresses involved, and how to balance life and work. I, therefore, have empathy but also the experience to draw out from you what and how you want to change.
How coaching can help you, and how does my coaching work?
This is an opportunity to take time out and reflect on where you are now and where you want to get to going forward. What is your own vision for the future, what are your values, and how important are they to you?
After coaching with me, I believe you will understand yourself a lot more and the impact you have on others.I normally like to meet for a coffee first or at least have a healthy conversation on the telephone or Skype. It is important that we are on the same wavelength and can work together.
Once we have agreed to work together, we will have an intake session (which takes up to two hours) covering a number of exercises to establish what you are looking for and what to focus on first. Further sessions can then be face to face, on the telephone or Skype, whatever works best for you.
What does my coaching cover?
Everything including career, retirement, confidence, life/work balance, establishing what you want to gain from your life, and putting together an action plan to achieve. The only thing I don't get involved with is personal relationships coaching. If you want to change, then through my coaching the results do easily follow.
