I work with people who aspire to do or create extraordinary things. I do this through writing, speaking, running live events, delivering training sessions and seminars and by coaching individuals on a one to one basis. I’m based in the East Midlands and travel widely across the UK.
Talks, Workshops and Webinars
I deliver talks and workshops on Confidence, Self-promotion and the Business of Creativity for corporate clients, universities and creative and cultural organisations.
I also run masterclasses for coaches on techniques for working with quiet people, and self publishing for practitioners who wish to explore ambitions to get a book written and into print.
I’m a contributor to Cambridge University’s Queens Young Leaders programme, creating webinars that have been distributed worldwide. I have popped up on a wide number of platforms – from schools in the Bronx, New York to the wilds of rural Leicestershire; from the Victoria & Albert Museum to daytime TV and radio chatshows and keynotes for business networks through to my recent ‘Cheeky Letters and Dream Lists’ TED talk. I create and present e-courses, webinars and podcasts that are distributed globally.
One to One coaching
Over the years my clients have included many business owners and entrepreneurs, CEO’s, a vet, a Roman Catholic hermit, senior managers (corporate and academic), rock musicians, visual artists, writers and cultural leaders. All have wanted to make their mark on the world and be successful on their own terms. I have helped them overcome the very different blocks to progress that each has perceived to be in the way.
I write and blog extensively about confidence, creativity and motivation for a wide range of magazines and websites.
My first book – ‘Make Your Creativity Pay’, was published in July 2011. The second – ‘The Art of Shouting Quietly‘ – a guide to self-promotion for introverts and other quiet souls’, was released in April 2015.
I have been in business since 1984. I trained as a coach with Barefoot Coaching Ltd – the UK’s premier coaching company – and have a Postgraduate Certificate in Business & Personal coaching from Chester University.
The thinking behind my work is built on 30 years of face to face coaching, training and problem-solving sessions with a wide range of successful people. I have observed what works – and what doesn’t – and distilled it into sensible, realistic advice. It’s all based on real conversations with real people confronting life’s thornier issues – just like you.
