Having a coach isn’t a sign of weakness -
it’s a hallmark of wisdom.

Work and life are challenging on so many different levels. But by working together with you, I can help you create a less stressful, more focussed and successful business. And a more fulfilled, happier and rounded life.

  • IT'S TOUGH AT THE TOP

    Running your own business can be amazing, but it can also be a lonely, challenging place. During tough times (and in the good times), finding someone to discuss big decisions with becomes super-important. Having founded, run and sold my own company, I can empathise with you.

     

    HOW A COACH CAN HELP

    Having someone outside your organisation who isn't working day to day on the business is often the very best way to help you get clarity on your goals and opportunities, working through stresses and strains. It’s so important to take a step back regularly away from the day-to-day running of a business. 

     

    WHO CAN YOU TALK TO?

    If you’re super-stressed (which is natural), discussing sensitive issues with your business partner or senior team sometimes doesn't feel right. And you don't want to burden your partner at home with work stresses. A business coach can be the best outlet for you to discuss things - both personally as a leader and for your company. 

     

    BEST INVESTMENT

    Hiring me as your business coach can have so many benefits. An outside voice of reason to help you focus on what you are best at, improve your productivity and motivation, sort out complex issues and ultimately to help you create the most profitable company that you love running.

  • OVERWHELMED? STRESSED?

    Let’s be honest, life is pretty manic. Kids, school, home, mess, admin, work, shopping, bills, holidays, parties - it’s just relentless. And that often means that with so much going on, you don’t ever get the chance to stop and work out where life is going and what you yourself actually want out of the next five, ten or 20 years.

     

    STUCK IN A RUT

    With little time to yourself, we can often feel flat and demotivated with our batteries running low - it’s not a nice feeling. But you can get your mojo back! And you do that by taking a step back and look at all areas of your life.

     

    TAKE SOME TIME FOR YOU

    I love working with clients to work out what they want to achieve for themselves and their families. It’s such an important time as the kids grow up and our parents are in their latter years. Spending quality time with the people you love; doing things that give you energy; having hobbies that you're passionate about; seeing friends that make you smile.

     

    WHAT’S THE SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE?

    So now is a great time to invest in yourself. Everyone wants to change something about their life, however small - so let me help you work out what is life shape you aspire to and what goals you want to achieve this year and into the future. It is an amazing process and you will feel re-energised and motivated.

  • STUCK IN THE MIDDLE

    A lot of people are stuck in jobs or careers they hate, working for/with people they don’t like. And that’s not good. Maybe it’s you, maybe it’s someone you know? But you know what, you can change.

     

    ONE DIRECTION

    But sometimes, you are not quite sure which direction to turn. Would it help to have someone to listen to where you’re at, to help you weigh up the pros and cons, to look at what gives you energy and motivation? Your next decision might become obvious.

     

    ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE?

    Life is too short to not love your career, so before you spend another 260 working days a year (or nearly 3,000 days in the next decade!) in a job that doesn’t get your juices flowing, why not get in touch so I can help you work out what’s right for you. 

  • START ME UP

    Many business people want to start their own company. They are fed up working hard making someone else rich and they believe that they can create something better themselves. I hear you..

     

    ARE YOU READY?

    But there are so many pros and cons about going solo and starting something new - you are never quite sure if you are ready to take the plunge and you’re worried about the risks of not having a guaranteed salary.

     

    IT’S GOOD TO TALK

    Having started companies, I have been there and understand the huge amount of excitement you feel, but with the understandable feelings of fear and trepidation. So I am here to help you talk through the options, work through your worries, see the potential and give you advice on what’s next. 

     

    TIME TO ROCK!

    So before you find yourself pontificating for months, let me help you get to the right decision quicker, so you can move forward with the next steps with more clarity and positivity.

  • HELP! WHAT SHOULD I DO?

    Leaving school with no clue what to do? Year off or straight to uni? Apprenticeship or first rung on the career ladder? 

     

    STARTING YOUR CAREER

    It’s a challenging time in your late teens and early twenties, especially when other friends seem to have got themselves sorted.

    PARENT GAP

    Despite parents’ best efforts to provide sensible advice to their children, they don’t often want to hear what you’ve got to say, which can lead to frustration and arguments.

     

    ROAD TO NOWHERE
    I can work with your children to help them find their true strengths and passions so they can have more clarity on what they should be doing with their careers. 

     

    STRENGTHS GIVE YOU ENERGY

    If they can use their strengths, they’ll enjoy their career more, progress faster and have a more fulfilled, happy and motivated life. And as parents, that’s all we should really want.

People say the nicest things

“Oli works in a relaxed and informal way and the whole experience has given me a new insight into how I want to live my life and the things that are important to me both personally and professionally. I would highly recommend him.”

Amazing advice

"I had recently been laid off and was struggling to figure out how to navigate the next stage of my career.

 

"I was introduced to Oli and over a few sessions, he allowed me to verbalise what I was thinking, put sensible and lofty goals in place and gave me amazing advice that ultimately led me to landing my dream job.

 

"Thank you Oli - I can’t recommend your services enough."

Much-needed clarity

"I recently worked with Oli during a difficult period in my professional career. Feeling disillusioned with my employers, I felt it was the right time to start my own business.

 

As someone who had set up and grown a business from scratch, Oli was able to help advise on all the steps and considerations that I should make before making this big decision, which gave me much-need clarity.

 

Ultimately, I went for it and I am so thankful that I did. Oli’s help during this challenging transition and the early days of my business were truly invaluable. It is quite possible that the outcome would have been very different without his sage advise and counsel.

Patient, diligent and insightful

"Oli is patient, diligent and insightful.

 

"He has helped me navigate through some very challenging times and given me a positive mindset for my future, with both high-level and practical thoughts."  

Profound personal growth

"Through his guidance and support, I've experienced profound personal growth with Oli in a short space of time. His insightful coaching techniques, tailored to my unique needs and goals, have empowered me to overcome obstacles, gain clarity, and unlock my full potential.

 

He is very generous with his time and I look forward to continuing to work with together."

Regain my confidence

"As an artist, I’ve enjoyed a steady and successful career, but I then hit some stubborn roadblocks and I couldn’t understand why. 

"Oli literally came to the rescue by very sensitively picking through why I was feeling so rotten and why I hadn’t been to the studio in over a month. He asked questions that I’ve been too proud or shy to answer when asked by others, but he managed to get to the root of the problem and then suggested ways to overcome my fears. 

"Since our session, I've completed various tasks already and produced some positive results. Thank you Oli for helping me regain my confidence."

Taken huge strides

"I approached the journey with Oli with trepidation, I knew I needed a bit of direction, support, help along the way, I knew what I wanted to achieve but just couldn’t quite find  the way to make it happen.

 

"An email to him sat in my outbox for about 2 weeks (I knew him socially, but never worked with him) and eventually I decided to send it.

 

"Since meeting with Oli, I feel like I have taken huge strides along an exciting path and he has helped me achieve this. He’s easy to talk to, he’s ambitious, his enthusiasm is infectious and I am pleased that I made the decision to get in touch!

Confidence is key

"Meeting Oli was one of the most impactful moments of my career.

 

Following that, his mentorship made me a much better person and professional. Oli gave me the guidance (and confidence) I needed to believe that I could build a business of value."

We all need a clear plan...

“Working with Oli was exactly the motivating ‘kicked up the bum’ that I needed. Having to take the time and sit and think about areas which I need to improve on was ideal.

 

A lot of the ideas have wafted around in my mind for a while but I’ve never taken the time to actually address them and make a plan. Now I have a clear plan ahead!”

What do you want out of life?

“I found the time with Oli very inspiring and uplifting. In a relaxed session, I felt encouraged by Oli to think about life and what I wanted out of it.”

Setting goals is key

“The session with Oli was absolutely fantastic and has really helped me look forward and set some achievable goals for the next year and give some great tips for a generally better life.”

Our lives are 360 degrees

"Oli is an extremely personable coach who really listens to what you want, and then uses his wealth of knowledge & experience to help create a transformation in your life that has a 360 degree approach; encompassing personal & professional aspects."

Positive out of negative

"Oli was a tremendous help to me during a difficult and stressful period of my life. He took time to understand exactly what was troubling me and then offered clear and thoughtful advice.  

 

He is a very good listener with natural empathy."
