I specialise in coaching middle and senior leaders from engineering, technical and analytical backgrounds, as I have an engineering background myself and know what it's like to make the transition into leadership. Many of my clients have come from a variety of businesses, including utilities, engineering, printing, banking and healthcare.

Mike is a fantastic coach. He really listens to what you are trying to achieve and really delves deep into finding the answers that you require. He really opened up our eyes to what we needed to do to improve our business. This is an investment which is worth it's weight in gold. More...

I started monthly coaching sessions with Mike soon after taking on a leadership role in the NHS. By asking all the right questions, Mike guided me through the process of troubleshooting areas of weakness in my leadership, helping me to identify the next steps to addressing these. With his unique ability to ask the right questions, Mike not only enhanced my ability to be effective in my current role, but helped me to determine the right direction for my career going forward. Mike is an individual with a great track record in business and real integrity, and I would thoroughly recommend him as a coach. More...

Mike is an excellent coach with excellent listening skills and a lot of experience in many areas. Mike has supported me in various challenges and developmental areas such as personnel issues, strategic thinking, stakeholder management, and personal and professional development.

Mike is very personable and easy to get along with. I believe that anyone facing challenges or desiring to develop their skills would benefit from Mike's coaching skills. Highly recommended!

Mike is one of those rare people who appears to have time for people and yet achieves a lot. In his coaching sessions with me I never felt rushed or closed down to meet a target or deadline and yet we were able to cover huge amounts of in-depth discussion and come to clear and insightful conclusions. Mike also does not let you off the hook one you have agreed an action and like all great coaches is there with relevant and supportive encouragement to keep you on track with the changes you have agreed. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who would actually like to change. More...


Seeing my clients make significant breakthroughs in the challenges they are facing, especially relating to change in their professional lives and organisation.

After 30 years working in large engineering companies, I wanted to do something that connects with my values and my passion to help people achieve and be their best at work.

I successfully made the transition into leadership from a variety of technical roles and want to help others with similar backgrounds succeed as well, including at the highest level.

If you're a leader from an engineering or technical background, I understand the unique way that you think and the kinds of leadership challenges you face in your role, because I’ve come from an engineering background and been there myself.

As an experienced coach and strategy consultant, I have a track record of helping my clients to think differently. Working together, you will gain new insights into your leadership and business challenges, as well as potentially into yourself. I’ll also help you to develop a realistic and workable plan to take things forward.

I can work with individuals in person or remotely, though working with a team is best done in person.

I work with clients across the UK, Europe and North America using Zoom or MS Teams.

Where necessary, I work with my clients remotely using Zoom or MS Teams.

When working with a client at their site, I follow all their Covid secure protocols, as well as taking a lateral flow test beforehand.


In our coaching conversations, I'll create a safe space for you to identify and explore ways of addressing your current leadership challenges.

Coaching typically takes place over six sessions of 60-90 minutes each spread over several months.

This allows us to build an open and trusting working relationship and gives time for you to think and try things out between sessions.

As you look to grow your business, my aim is to demystify the concept of strategy and help you to see beyond your current situation.

I'll help you refocus on your vision and purpose and develop the right strategy for your business, enabling you to put time and energy into the things that really matter to taking it forward.

You'll understand the actions you need to take and their associated risks, giving you the confidence you need to face the challenges ahead.

Depending on the company size, I can do this one-to-one or with your leadership team. Where this involves a team, this is best done over a series of in-person half-day workshops.
