Ian is an ICF accredited coach and group facilitator, based in London and working with clients around the world. He specialises in helping experienced business people face challenge and change in the workplace and bring more of themselves to the role. Many of his clients are women seeking greater confidence and purpose, and better ways to balance life demands with their ambition to perform well in very senior roles. A great deal of his work focuses on the mindset, motivation, beliefs and narratives people need to adopt to get what they truly want and deserve.

Ian is skilled in listening well, clarifying strengths and helping clients reclaim underused talents to fulfil their true potential. His style is relaxed and light, often using humour and metaphor to encourage people to explore new perspectives, fresh possibilities and higher levels of performance in their life and work. He has deep knowledge and experience around public speaking, influencing and Storytelling for business. He is licensed to use a range of diagnostic profiling tools including MBTI, Insights and Prophet for individual and team assessment.

Ian has a business background from senior marketing roles in the City where he worked for many years at Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters. He also holds a Masters degree in Strategic Marketing Management, which helps him get on the client’s wavelength and ask the questions that will move them quickly to action.
