It was via Stuart that I was first exposed to coaching and the value it can bring into the organisation. I have been utilising this tool ever since to help me and my team arrive at the most powerful solutions, even if they did not appear obvious at first.
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.

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.
Global IT Manager
Stuart was instrumental in developing a home grown skill base for coaching within the business. His thought leadership and sheer passion for the subject converted many into followers and provided the business with a common ground from which to develop individuals’ own brand of leadership and coaching style.
Stuart embedded coaching as part of the Foster’s culture across the EMEA business. He personally coached a broad number of individuals at all levels and functions across Foster’s, as well as training an even wider group of staff to establish coaching as a way of working at Foster’s EMEA. He established a strong finance team and transformed the finance function into a team of commercially focussed business partners. Stuart developed a large number of staff, who have successfully moved into larger roles at Foster’s, both within and outside of finance.
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 took great care and attention to understand the context of my business and personal setting. He was particularly good at helping me see different perspectives and
options in situations.

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.
Peter Jackson - CEO, Fosters EMEA
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.
For anyone in a leadership position or aspiring to develop their career I would completely endorse Stuart as an outstanding executive coach. His coaching style is completely focused on the needs of the client, very empathetic, understanding when to encourage or challenge you to search within yourself for the answer and when to provide practical and finely tuned coaching advice.
