    I wanted a coach to help me with organising and focussing ideas to develop my new business, particularly around my marketing and business development efforts. With Steve’s help I was able to prioritise my ideas, identify the steps needed and do the necessary research to decide which would be the most effective idea and manage my limited time. Throughout the coaching sessions Steve has always been very supportive and encouraging. Yet at the same time I felt challenged just enough to stretch me to come up with alternative approaches without it seeming too big a stretch. Thank you Steve for your time and support, it has been very helpful indeed.

    Steve became my Coach supporting me during my initial stages of setting up my own business. During the sessions Steve was able to help me to get space in my busy diary to think about my business step by step and help me to create an action plan that I then was able to capitalise on. At times Steve asked questions that helped to think outside of the box to generate options and choices to explore, which later resulted in more fruitful ideas. Thank you Steve, for your time and patience. NSE, Owner 2013.

    Of the 11 coaches that coached me Steve was the last one but by far the best in terms of his comprehensive knowledge and tools. Each session has been distinct from the previous one due to Steve's amazing usage of coaching tools and experimentation with various parameters. Right from visualization to past skill to 9 point tools that he used on me (during my sales workshop goal) was absolutely productive. Not only it nudged me towards my respective goal achievement but I imbibed some awesome coaching skills and style from Steve .
    Notable aspect of Steve's coaching is his lack of hesitancy to ask the next question and fully coherent to the previous statement that I mentioned hence at no point did I feel any question was contrived or out of order. His life experience as well as thorough coaching skill is very evident in the sessions. In terms of one of my goals - 'writing my 2nd product' after understanding my reality Steve asked me a powerful set of questions that made me realise that it was ' Time management ' aspect that was lacking thereby was happy to recalibrate my goal for the session . I just wished I met Steve earlier. Overall fantastic .


  • from Michelle – Image consultant on 02 Feb 2014

    I found Steve to be a good coach that was always very thorough in the process of helping me to achieve my goals. I always managed to come up with more ideas than I thought I would and he helped me see things from a different perspective. He was always pleasant and matched my thoughts and mood perfectly. I have managed to create and stick to action plans that have brought me to my goals a lot quicker than I expected. I would definitely recommend Steve to others. Thanks very much for your support.


  • from Mailan – Senior Manager – Vodafone on 22 Jan 2014

    Before starting the coaching sessions with Steve I was happy in my job but wanted something more. I just did not know how to define what I wanted or how to get it. During the sessions Steve drew out of me what I really wanted to achieve with my career progression. We had a few false starts where avenues I explored proved unsuitable but rather than give in, the coaching sessions redefined my direction and I tried other options. My work environment is extremely hectic so finding the time to research career development options was always going to be a challenge. Through coaching I learned what was really important to me and prioritised my work accordingly giving more focus to my personal and career development. Work pressures continue to be a huge challenge but, I have applied what I have learned through the coaching experience and have now completed a number of personal development courses and will continue to do so.

    Working with Steve has made a massive impact to how I organise my business schedule and workload. In the first session Steve laid out what was expected from the sessions and that it would be me that would be setting and completing my business objectives and that he would be mostly taking on a listening role.

    In each session Steve would coach me by asking simple questions allowing me to organise and unlock my thoughts in order set a plan on the most important things to do. At the end of each session I would have set my own clear objectives of what I need to do to go one step further in making my business a success.

    Coaching with Steve has led me to feel empowered in my work in that I can organise the most important aspects and clear objectives to make it a success. The result has been that I have had the most successful two weeks of sales since I started. I would have no hesitation in recommending coaching with Steve to anyone looking to improve themselves or business.
