The Cornerstone of Success

One of the most important things I coach clients on is the value of having a good team around you. If you want to be at the top of your game you need your A-team on the bus with you. There’s no room for tourists on my bus!

I’m fortunate to have an outstanding group of people supporting me. This team allows me to focus on you, my client entirely.

From a marketing department to technical support, a client contact team and a Personal Assistant, I’ve got all the bases covered to ensure I can dedicate my time to focusing on how best I can help you.

His tally exceeds 45, but he has overseen at least 100 more, leading teams in the UK, USA, Netherlands, Spain, Poland, South Africa, Middle East Australia. This breadth of experience has given him a rare insight into global best practices, international contacts, and unearthing opportunities.
