You and your leaders want to step up and achieve high performance and success. We coach you with a strategic and financial edge to achieve your goals and ambitions.
At Aim Higher Leadership we start with you, your team, your organisation. We specialise in Leadership & Executive coaching because our coaches were all senior leaders in large corporate organisations before they qualified as coaches – so we bring both our executive experience and our financial and strategic acumen, as well as our coaching expertise, to help you with your business needs and challenges.
The real value was in asking the difficult questions, making you confront the harsh reality of a problem and start developing solutions as opposed to burying your head in the sand. Stuart clearly demonstrated the value of coaching in our business and the benefits it would bring to our organisation. It created stronger leaders who could make decisions faster and lead the organisation to achieve greater outcomes.

It gave me the opportunity to step out from the day-job and think more widely, laterally and question a whole host of things to do with my career and working relationships.
Nick Richards - CFO, Unite Student Accommodation/Housing
My confidence has vastly improved as a result of my coaching and I can see tangible improvements on the way I work and interact with colleagues. I can now confidently approach situations and be sure that my input is valued, which now has a positive effect on my business.
Kevin Roberts - UK Sales Director, Meda Pharmaceuticals
In his coaching Stuart challenges an individual to dig deeper and makes them think about what they really want and what their values are. He has a strong set of personal values himself, which allow him to be very understanding and supportive.
Head of Strategy
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.
Barry Doherty - Headmaster, Colmers School
Stuart’s passion for coaching, and his belief in the benefits that it can bring to an individual and the wider organisation is impressive, and this was always backed up by his personal commitment to the people he coached. At a pivotal time in my career, Stuart’s commitment to helping me reach my potential was hugely appreciated. His personal support and coaching helped me to understand what it was that was important to me in my career, and he also gave me the confidence to improve performance through adopting coaching relationships with my team.
Richard Renwick - CFO, Fosters EMEA
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.
S Venkateswaran - CFO, A&E Dubai
It enabled us to sharpen and clarify our thinking considerably. As a leader it gave me a reassurance that I had a clear future direction that my team had built together by consensus and were fully signed up to. I am confident that we a stronger and more cohesive team as a result.
Alison Ward - CEO, Torfaen County Council
Stuart helped me see the bigger picture and understand the key stakeholders. He specifically coached me on how to present to a Senior Executive audience in an articulate way. He helped me to stay motivated during the high stress tense moments and maintain my resilience.

One of the first things that you notice about Stuart is that he has a high degree of emotional intelligence, strong integrity and is a sound judge of character. His open engaging approach establishes trust early on in the coach/coachee relationship.
