About Ian

A business coach who understands the challenges you face

Coming from the corporate world, I understand perfectly the complex challenges you face in your career.

From managing others to meeting targets, I’ve been where you are now and know how hard it can be to focus on self-development when you’re busy managing the day-to-day tasks. But I also know that it is possible to find renewed energy and enthusiasm, creating exciting new opportunities in your career.

I was a corporate lawyer for over 20 years (10 years of which was in Australia), working both as a senior in-house counsel with multinational organisations and in major law firms.

During that time, I managed senior teams of lawyers, oversaw complex cross-border transactions and ran high profile litigation. I know the pressures executives and professionals face to deliver on targets while at the same time dealing with the challenges that come with managing and motivating high-performing teams.

While working as a lawyer, I was often asked to provide coaching to colleagues and it was something I loved to do. Seeing people develop their potential and create real change within their organisations is incredibly rewarding.

Seeing the difference coaching can make, both to individuals and to the organisations they belong to, gave me the drive to pursue my dream of becoming a full-time business coach.

I now offer coaching to businesses and executives across the UK, helping those people and businesses grow and succeed. I work with clients across the UK, primarily in London and Leeds.
