‘I have benefited greatly from Steve’s excellent ability to quickly absorb and assimilate complex information and then convert this into effective strategies/approaches.’ Deputy Chief Executive
‘Going from only having to manage my own time and day-to-day activities in a key account sales role to being responsible for the entire business as General Manager there was a steep learning curve I had to go through and continue to develop with Steve’s help. Not only did it require me to change my day-to-day activities, but I also had to consider how my interactions with the rest of the business and team needed to change, how to use my personality strengths to my advantage but also focus on improving my weaknesses, become a leader figure both within the business and externally, and completely change and widen the things I pay attention to on a day-to-day basis to include both a longer-term strategic outlook across the whole business as well as the detail of daily operational activities.
I have worked very closely with Steve over the last 18-months in this role with him mentoring, advising, coaching and training me to cover all of the above. I think it would have been a lot harder, if not impossible without his help.’ General Manager
I work one to one with leaders helping them to be more successful. Whether it’s helping you run your senior management meetings more effectively, developing your business strategy, solving problems in operations or just handling day to day challenges – I can help you.
I’ve worked in multi-million pound businesses and much smaller ones too; with public sector contract deliverers and engineering companies; marketers, architects and property companies, hotels and more – I’m motivated by helping people learn how to be better leaders, how to get things done, and making their businesses more successful as a result. I pass on as much of my experience as I can. I bring my own hands-on management and leadership experience to you and your team too if needed. Access to the Spring Board also brings a much wider breadth of experience too. We can also tailor a specific programme of development for you – the Spring Programme is a great way of defining what you need and how it can be delivered to your needs. The 90 minute Insight Session is free!
‘I would just like to say thank you very much for the help you have provided through the mentoring process, it’s been great. I certainly feel that the process you used and your knowledge gave us new tools and awareness, and provided reassurance to finish and fine-tune existing processes. It gave us the confidence to know we are working efficiently in the right areas of the business to move forward. We most certainly will call for consultation as things come up, thanks for that. Look forward to working with you again in the future.’ Managing Director
