“The best development programme I have experienced in 30 years in the NHS”
‘Thank you for enlightening, interesting, enjoyable and educational leadership development sessions in the past year which has inspired me to believe and succeed’
“Greg has worked closely with my organisation over the past year enabling and empowering us to develop the leadership skills and abilities that we aspire to... and needed the skills to support and manage confused and often disengaged staff whilst developing our own new roles...Greg quickly gained my trust and respect and has enabled me and my colleagues to become more self aware, to realise how we often unwittingly collude with others in accepting a poor level of performance and has helped us take steps to develop the confidence to achieve and to support others in achieving organisational and personal goals. I have seen several members of my own team really grow with his support and I hope to continue working with him and his team in the future”.
“Greg has an excellent understanding of the underlying issues of our organisation and has seen us through a difficult time. With this level of understanding and his personal style of calm reassurance and challenge, and with his respect for the personal qualities of individuals, the course was relevant, helpful and appropriate for [our] organisation.”
“What Greg has allowed us to understand is that the solutions are often to be found within organisations and individuals themselves. The development programme provided the key to unlocking this potential."
Leadership Programme delegates
“With each session I felt stronger both mentally and emotionally. I am more aware of my own presence and behaviour and that of others around me. My confidence is growing and I believe and trust in my own judgement, which is helping me to make the best decisions …
I want to succeed and for the staff I manage to develop and aspire to their own goals. I feel that I can offer the support … for them to achieve. I had taken so much for granted - now I stop and think about what is happening around me and have changed the way I react. Thank you so much.”
WB - Middle manager London RSL
“Greg has been fantastic, he has helped open my mind and look at myself in a different light… working with Greg has been a very positive experience and I would recommend his services to anyone. I did say to him that it would be good to bottle him and keep him in my handbag!”

SD – Director, Central Government Department (Landed his ‘dream’ job in the week of his final coaching session)
Greg has helped me & my staff through a particularly difficult work situation, presenting 100% attention to each individual, making us all think ‘outside the box’ to develop assertiveness & confidence for our futures. He has been sensitive, supportive and respectful to each of us allowing us to see there is light at the end of the tunnel. Through a particularly negative situation, a positive one has been found. Thank you.
