Paul is an experienced training facilitator as well as a qualified executive coach. Paul has many years of experience in the manufacturing and sales industries having run a number of successful businesses of his own. Paul is a life-long learner and enjoys creating value in people’s lives. Paul has a very much hands-on down to earth no nonsense approach. Paul believes that although the solutions often lie within the individuals that he coaches he possesses enough practical knowledge to offer some practical applications if necessary. As an ex martial arts instructor Paul also believes that once you obtain a valuable skill it becomes your obligation to pass that skill on for the benefit of others.
Paul first began his training and coaching career whilst running his own businesses developing training courses for his sales force and maintaining a constant support mechanism to enable those people to achieve their targets. Paul has helped with numerous coaching interventions including developing and delivering coach the coach courses to HR executives as well as one-to-one coaching for both the BT and Fujitsu Graduate Development Programmes.
Paul firmly believes that enabling an individual to have a greater awareness of themselves is the key to them understanding how other people work and the first step towards integrating themselves in a harmonious working environment where they can not only achieve a real sense of purpose but also actual and real enjoyment in what they do. Paul sets about this by a mixture of applicable psychometric tools as well as building rapport through a series of one-to-one coaching sessions in order to focus the client towards an action plan that is rooted in reality.

Paul believes that we are all a work in progress and that none of us are yet the finished article and it's Paul’s job, as a coach, to find out what it is that a person wants to improve and is looking to go and to help them get there. My philosophy is that I work in partnership with someone on helping to establish realistic goals and to enable them to break those goals down into bite sized chunks so that each step feels, and becomes, a whole lot less daunting and that with help, encouragement and continued support we can achieve far more than we thought possible.
