Clients & Testimonials


I liked the challenging style, mixed in with theory, visuals and softer aspects – Stuart was always able to get the right balance to ensure I kept challenging myself.

Simon Loh - Divisional Managing Director, Arriva Buses

Stuart has an innate strength for coaching / mentoring and I liked his style.  Far from being prescriptive, Stuart has this ability to listen patiently and throw a couple of leading probing questions that sets you on the path of discovering your own solutions. He operates as an effective sounding board bringing his years of experience to bear on the conversation.

Financial Controller

This is my twentieth year in education and only once have I received this kind of CPD that was tailored to me and could not be found in a good book. Coaching in this way provides something very new and unique. Partly holding up a mirror, partly a sounding board, partly an agony uncle, partly a teacher and partly a friend.
