Leading from the front
Stuart has over thirty years experience of working with people in corporate and commercial business (thirty years of experience, not one year of experience repeated thirty times!). He has worked in senior management and c-suite roles at international brands, understanding the customer relationship journey across regional, national and continental borders.
Stuart has an elaborate understanding of what it takes to operate a business with monetary challenges and competing stakeholder demands, and the specific challenges that brings for everyone in organisation. With a track record of delivering outstanding financial results and returns for all stakeholders, Stuart understands that business performance comes through the effort of people.
Using his many years of experience of coaching and mentoring in business, Stuart unlocks the potential of the individuals who work with him. The fundamental idea of Stuart’s approach is that individuals make the difference, and better managers make better decisions that deliver better financial returns.
Stuart passionately believes in the advantages of team performance, and that one and one working together can equal four.
Stuart brings his extensive business skills and knowledge together to coach and mentor key individuals and teams, to enable them to contend with the numerous challenges faced in business today. He supports them in identifying opportunities they may not have yet found and assists in developing methods to attain success.
Additionally, Stuart couples the vital interpersonal skills involved in coaching and mentoring with process management, to offer mediation services to individuals and businesses. Practitioners and users recognise the advantages of mediation across wide areas of human and corporate disputes, difficulties, and conflicts, in order to achieve satisfactory resolution without the need for legal cost and intervention.
Henley Business School alumni
During his time at Henley, qualifying from the Professional Certificate in Coaching programme, Stuart forged close working relationships with a number of coaches who possessed similar values to himself.
A group of six of those coaches went on to form a working associate group. This group helps to design, build and deliver tailored coaching and mentoring programmes across senior organisations.
