Hi, I'm Paul, independent coach & consultant, family-man, traveller, cyclist and business problem solver. My work is inspired by a good deal of experience in life, including a  25-year business career. I have worked in market research, manufacturing, banking, higher education, social enterprise and the charity sector. I've led international teams from commercial and technical backgrounds in business growth and recovery situations, developed new markets, and set up off-shore and outsourcing services. I understand the challenges that people at all levels in an organisation face and thrive on helping them cut through complexity to find their way forward during periods of transformation.


I am an internationally qualified professional coach and experienced facilitator. I am told that I am calm, compassionate and challenging when working one-to-one and with groups. I create a space in which people learn and develop clarity, belief and meaning so that they can move forward on the road to their personal and professional goals.

To keep my balance, relax and find my own way forward, I enjoy being coached myself, continuing to learn, walking with my family and taking part in long-distance cycling events that combine travel and discovery.


Your Needs & Services Offered

You may be a business owner, CEO, IT Manager, Project Director or Line Manager in a commercial or not-for-profit sector feeling that you and your team could move forward more purposefully and confidently in pursuit of your goals. I help you create the space in which you can do the thinking and take the action needed to achieve your most important professional and personal goals.

 Helping teams succeed by creating stronger connections within and between teams

I help teams find new ways of working that create a better experience for their clients and themselves.  Scenarios in which I do this are service design and improvement, business start-up, geographic expansion, off-shoring, project initiation and project recovery.
Programmes typically span 12 months and include a one-day start-up, monthly one hour sessions and a one-day wrap-up.

Helping you consistently do and be your best

I work with individuals to help them develop the clarity, belief and meaning to achieve personal and professional goals. The most common situations are when people: move into a new role, want to decide what their next career move is, need to adapt during restructures or find more balance in life.
Once we agree to work together we would carry out a half-day exploration of what you really want and the steps to get there. That is followed by one hour sessions typically over six to twelve months with a further half-day wrap-up at the end.
