What's Happening?

Business Description

Highly credible and recognised Business Coach, Consultant and Trainer working with ambitious business owners in the North West since 2014. 

Having held two Directorships from 2006 to 2013 with a large food-service SME and steering them through recession as Commercial Director achieving sales and profit growth year on year, my clients tell me they gain valuable skills and support to grow their business in challenging market conditions.

Working with Directors, Managers and commercial teams within business I offer a wide range of business support,. Sometimes subsidised through regional business support programmes, I also offer competitive commercial rates for businesses where funding is not appropriate or available. Examples of support on offer:

  • Strategy Planning and Coaching
  • One-to-One Executive Coaching
  • Group Leadership/Management Coaching
  • Sales Strategy Development and Sales Management/Team Coaching
  • Business diagnostics tool: assessing culture, engagement and workforce development needs
  • Consultancy for Workforce development planning 
  • Blended workforce development solutions including on-line training

Recognised as Best Newcomer Mentor in November 2014 under the Lancashire Boost programme I have gone on to work with over 50 clients either through subsidised programmes like Boost or independent of subsidised programmes, in over 20 sectors.

With 30 years business experience and 13 years of those at Director level working in a large SME operating out of 2 large sites in the North of England, my clients tell me that I bring a breadth of experience and skills to their business. 

Here's a mantra that I live by:

“In a world of change, the learners shall inherit the earth, while the learned shall find themselves perfectly suited for a world that no longer exists.”

My Recommendations

Having worked with Paul for a couple of years now I'd be delighted to recommend him to other business owners. He has provided me with some quality referrals that have really helped my business to grow. This has also given me a real insight into how highly his clients regard him and the results he helps them to achieve growing their business. Not only is Paul excellent at what he specialises in he also takes the time and makes effort to work on mutually beneficial collaborative projects.
