Chris H


Chris has nearly forty years of business experience, having held director and marketing positions with Mars and Pillsbury UK.  His love of sport combined with his business experience subsequently led Chris to start up Prince Sports Goods in the UK.  He ran the business for ten years before selling it to Benetton.  Chris's corporate approach and extensive marketing experience make him one of the leaders in the industry and an excellent coach who focuses on business growth and personal development.


Since 1995, Chris has specialised in consultancy and interim management projects across most parts of business.  At the core of this work lies his relationship with company CEOs in developing and growing businesses.  In this role he employs a wide range of facilitating, mentoring and coaching skills.  These skills have been enhanced further by a number of years working with The Samaritans and chairing both Adult and Youth Courts.

Coaching style

Chris combines a blue chip business background with proven knowledge of mentoring practices and principles, employing a coaching style that he believes is challenging yet empathic to his clients’ needs.  This, he believes, is based on an understanding that whilst businesses may recognise the need for coaching in the development of their people they are, equally, looking for a business return on their investment.  Therefore, coaching and mentoring should have both personal and commercial objectives. 


A lifetime of experience and many thousands of hours working with CEOs!

Coaching philosophy

“One of the beliefs I try to instil into my Leadership Coaching course for CEOs is that for Leaders, whatever their level in an organisation, coaching is not optional.  It is an integral part of Leadership.  It starts at the top and should be an embedded part of the culture of any company that wants to succeed.”

 Caitlin has made a real difference to my confidence and to the way I approach my business on a day to day basis.
John Baker, Regional Director, The Jockey Club
 It (coaching) unearthed a depth of confidence that I was beginning to question and enabled me to make a significant change within myself and my work.
Luke Joy-Smith, Managing Director - Somerset Social Enterprise
 I connected with my coach on our very first call and I believe that made the whole difference for me. I wish I could dig deeper on some of my remaining issues but unfortunately all good things have to end. I will definitely recommend coaching and have been already doing it for while. It definitely changed my life.
Stephanie Malka, Director NOC Service Engineering – EMEA
 Great to see that there has been a positive outcome from this.
Simon Gosney, Head of Learning and Development
 Tim has provided some high quality coaching support to me through a time of transition both in terms of job, career and organisational changes. He is a skilled and experienced executive coach who facilitated just the right mix of reflection, future visioning, challenge, compassion and stretch. I’d strongly recommend working with him if you are going through a career or organisation transition. Fun to work with, I always left my sessions with him feeling significantly clearer and more content with my overall direction of travel and next steps.
Neil Savage, Director of Organisational Development 2gether NHS Foundation Trust
 “I selected my coach on the basis that she had a completely different approach to my structured way of thinking. Katherine challenged me and took me way out of my comfort zone – scary and uncomfortable at times but eye-opening. These coaching sessions enabled me to see things from a very different perspective, gave me the time and space to reflect on my practice and provided practical tips and approaches as to how I can develop my performance.”
Zenobia Daar, Head of People, Governance & Performance
 Please continue with the programme. For a guy, like Paul, who does not use the word 'fantastic', who then uses must be really good!
Marissa Bartlett, Head of Organisational Development - Mid Sussex District Council
 Everyone learnt a lot about themselves and others. It was the first training in English that one of my mentors had done and it was really successful for him. We have all come away feeling more confident. I have been on many development programmes and I have to say it has been one of the best I have ever attended.
Radka Lankasova, HR Manager, DENSO MANUFACTURING CZECH s. r. o.
 Steve Delivered a professional, relaxed and engaging session. Relevance, interest and clarity of delivering allowed for a very productive outcome.
Andy Castle, VP of Network Operations and Engineering, EMEA
 I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with Steve. He encouraged me to look at how I view myself and my actions, to actively seek positive outcomes to every day situations. My perception of myself has certainly changed due to my conversations with Steve and I would highly recommend coaching sessions with Unlimited Potential.
