Get the right guidance at the right stage of your business
I’m not going to pussy foot around… You’ve a certain amount of time and energy and need to FOCUS on what will help you move your creative business forward NOW.
That’s why our coaching and programmes are specifically designed to give you what you need, when you need it. Moving you step by step to where you need to be next.
How many times have you heard promises of quick fixes and magic bullets to achieve overnight success?
Now I’m not saying that you can’t achieve success faster.
You can make great momentum and get faster results when you have the right clarity, strategies and take the right steps at the right time.
But don’t confuse that with jumping on a trampoline. Yes you might fool yourself into thinking you’ve achieved a higher level of success when a big client/contract/achievement lands in your lap.
Remember though that on a trampoline what goes up must always come down…
When you take the stairs instead, one step at a time, you keep moving onwards and upwards - creating sustainable success.
You can’t cheat the learning you get by stepping up. In order to be more successful, to be able to achieve your creative vision, you have to first BECOME the person who has that level of success.
This might include upgrading your:
- Means of attracting and converting your ideal clients
- Entrepreneurial skills and decision-making
- Mindset, focus and discrimination
- Productive and effective ways of working (which allow you to be more creative by the way)
- Maximising your time and energy
- Personal leadership - and if you’re managing one or more teams, leading others too
That’s why our journey together begins with discovering where you are now…

If you're a Leader then you - and your managers - will benefit from 1:1 coaching focused on how to level up your strategic business, leadership and delegation skills and mindsets.
Having already mastered how to identify and attract great staff, the key for you now is to develop and retain the best people to support your vision.
After all, if you can't delegate with trust, then how can you step back and work on your expansion plans or new ventures (or even your retirement plans!)?
This is also where upgrading your managers' and staff' entrepreneurial skills really makes the difference. Maybe you have great staff yet they don't have enough commercial acumen, or perhaps you feel they're not taking enough ownership...
The Trusted Teams Business Development Workshop not only teaches proven and profound business development principles, it also typically identifies strategies to generate £100k-£500k per team (over the next 6-12 months).
Not bad when you consider that most team interventions cost you money instead of generating it!
And that's not to mention how team dynamics change as a result. As you well know, great ideas and strategies are one thing - having the people who can smoothly and successfully work together to implement them is another...
