Just a quick catch up with my new job.
Been there over a month now, still a lot to learn and challenging on occasions, but glad I took the opportunity.
It was definitely a wise move for the future, progression and learning.
I just want to thank you again for all your help and advice and for showing me the right places on the internet for agencies to be able to find me.
I approached Steve because I had started a new business, and needed advice and help to build my confidence and help me to focus on key tasks. He helped me by meeting with me face to face to discuss strategies and ways forward. The result was a clearer understanding about what I needed to do and which direction to take the business in regards to target markets and marketing.
Of the many positive qualities that Steve posseses, I was particularly impressed by his clarity, precision and a sense of caring about what I was saying and experiencing.
I found the experience very positive and useful, not just from a business perspective but also on a personal level.
I would recommend Steve to anyone who needs advice and mentoring with a business start-up or struggling business, or who just needs direction on how to get things moving in their lives. – Pauline Downie, Creative Director, Its My Magazine
Steve is an extremely supportive, knowledgeable and understanding coach. He works closely with the charity as both a Trustee and a business adviser to our unemployed beneficiaries, inspiring them with confidence, skills and knowledge to start their own business. – Mirelle Frost, Kent Enterprise Trust
I am writing this testimonial in support of the Kent Enterprise Trust and to yourself for the help and advice that you gave me earlier today in our meeting. Your help and expertise has given me extra knowledge that will ultimately help me in my new business venture. Your understanding and positivity towards me was priceless. I am truly grateful that I have attended this course and that I have been fortunate enough to have had time with yourself today.
If the Trust and yourself can help others as you have helped me, then this can only be a wonderful thing. – Paula Taylor, Kent Enterprise Trust (Trainee)
I approached Steve as I needed business advice and he helped me by going over and above the expected remit. He showed a genuine interest in me and my business and ended up becoming more of a mentor and advisor, which was a blessing for me. The result was he helped me strategise and focus on a few key areas that I was unknowingly neglecting. Amongst the things that I liked about Steve was his patience, expertise, humour and love of flapjack bars! I found the experience very satisfying, he even met my mum and business partner. The three of us now regularly communicate and he’s always keen to find out updates about my business. I would recommend Steve to anyone who needs solid, strategic and long term business advice. He will really go the extra mile to ensure your success as unlike a lot of other business advisors, he really cares – and not just about the pounds – he really invests in your business in terms of his time and expertise. – Krystal Downie, Editorial Director, It’s My Magazine Ltd.
I approached Steve because I was looking for some guidance and support in the area of career development and confidence building. Steve was recommended to me by my colleague who knew him personally and was impressed by the results that his coaching had had on her clients.
Steve helped me by creating a platform for self-reflection and goal setting. His skilful questioning techniques and non-judgemental approach enabled me to explore my beliefs, assumptions and ideas for my future development without feeling pressurised. I got useful feedback on my CV and interview skills. As a result, my confidence to move up a career ladder increased and I successfully passed an interview for a higher level role within my current organisation.
One of the things I liked was that Steve was always prepared for the meetings and used various resources to support his coaching, such as personality tests and career development tools. I also appreciate that he is always willing to help and makes himself available for support.
I would recommend Steve to anyone who needs a committed and reliable coach with vast experience in his profession who offers honest feedback and takes pride in his work. – Wioleta Antolik – Shaw Trust
