Hi, I’m Mike

I’m a Mastermind and Strategic Decisions Coach.

I create calm, supportive spaces for business owners, corporate career professionals and leaders to explore their options, shape their way forward and confidently evolve their work-life.

Here’s the story of how I got here, and the skills I have to offer you…

After qualifying as an accountant, I spent 16 years helping £multi-million businesses to make and implement decisions. I became very good at wading through a sea of information to quickly find the key pieces needed to make decisions.

I found the most enjoyment from working with others to simplify and solve complex problems. And along the way, I led a multi-national team based across Europe; delivered major change projects; and was on the leadership teams of a 140-person outsourced service centre, a £40m technology centre of excellence and a £10m revenue-generating business unit.

Changing direction

I love collaborating with people. Empowering, energising and teaming-up with others has always been at the heart of my career. And it became increasingly clear, that’s where my passion lay.

I spent many evenings helping my colleagues to work out what to do next with their career and side-hustles. And I enjoyed it so much that in 2019 I took the leap and left my corporate job to focus solely on doing that.

Accreditation

I knew the value of rigorous professional qualifications , so I became an ICF-accredited coach, following 125 hours of training (learning theory and practicing on my fellow coaches) and 100 hours of paid coaching with clients.

And I learned so much! There’s a real skill in holding a calm, supportive space that enables people to work out what they truly want, rather than imposing your idea of what’s best.

Experience

Since then, I’ve supported hundreds of business owners and corporate career professionals in shaping their work-lives.

With over 550 hours (and counting…) of coaching experience, and 16 years of corporate decision-making, I bring a whole toolkit of techniques to sessions to support you in building your own unique path to success.

And I have developed a particular skill in facilitating Hotseat Masterminds. With over 140 hours of experience, I am adept at leveraging the wisdom of a small, carefully curated group of peers to tackle each person’s biggest challenge.
