I work with clients across a range of sectors, including investors, CEOs, senior business leaders, City professionals and headteachers. Some of their issues and challenges are specific to their professions, but much of the work we do cuts across individual industries.
I work predominantly on a one-to-one basis, but I also offer workshops on topics such as sleep, concentration & nutrition. These can be a great addition to strategy days for senior management teams, breaking up the traditional focus on corporate topics and enabling the group to work and learn together on issues that can affect them all in different ways.

"The highest praise I can give Steve is to say that he has equipped me with the framework for a whole new set of skills to tackle work, rest & life in general. I have developed an acute awareness of the importance of sleep, exercise and developing goals outside work. Perhaps most impressively, these were skills that I would have not even considered beforehand.
I now work smarter and more effectively as my horizons have been hugely broadened. Equally importantly, Steve is an excellent sounding board, with the experience of an extensive business career which has helped me navigate the challenges of my day-to-day role."
"Steve deploys a multi-faceted and holistic approach to executive coaching, caring for mind and body alongside professional development & growth. Each of our sessions take place during a 10k run along the towpath of the local river. We cover strategic business issues, lifestyle and relationships during the run with some deeply reflective conversations. Steve subsequently provides a very helpful written summary of the issues we covered, prioritisation and assessment of objectives achieved.
One of the most impactful outcomes from my sessions with him has been an honest recognition of how difficult it can be to change habits and how rewarding it is to strengthen good ones. Not only has my running improved significantly over the course of 2022, I am now doing regular Pilates sessions and have a much more balanced approach both in my working life and more broadly.
Very few people can change ingrained habits without thoughtful & practical coaching and I would highly recommend working with Steve to any CEO".
"The past 12 months have been the most challenging of my professional career. As an experienced headteacher, the range of demands, complexity of issues and expectations of emotional resilience have always been significant. But lockdown and the implications this has had for students and staff at my school have only added to what is already a challenging leadership role.
Since beginning work with Steve six months ago, I have been able to develop a range of additional habits, processes and routines that have been invaluable in supporting my own wellbeing and, in turn, helping me to be a better headmaster. Combining a practical, rigorous and easy-going and personal approach, Steve has helped me to improve my sleep patterns, fitness, eating habits and reduce my levels of stress and anxiety.
His approach has reminded me that the "big jobs" should not automatically be draining and require 60 hours a week of self-sacrifice and martyrdom. Indeed, at this time of utmost complexity and challenge, when leaders of organisations need to be at their most balanced and resilient, his philosophy and advice could not be more relevant. Recently, the additional work with Caroline on nutrition is only improving how I think about self-care in all senses of the term.
The combination of Steve's professional experiences to date, his personal and personable approach to all of our work and a deep commitment to helping the individual and the organisation they lead, means that I cannot recommend him highly enough to any leader whatever their context or circumstance. My ambition now is pass on what I am learning to my teaching staff and, ultimately, my students as part of their preparation for adult life."
"I would highly recommend Steve as a business coach, having been working with him for the last year. His first hand experience in the business and financial world really sets him apart from other coaches and adds an indispensable perspective and empathy which provides for powerful input and feedback."
