Who is Paul?
I am a business coach with 20 years experience developing and leading large and small businesses across the world.
I have been a senior leader with organisations including Virgin Media, British Airways and BP and I have seen what it takes to realise their full potential. I specialise in developing Sales, Marketing, Operations, Finance and HR functions to ensure that all areas of business operate in an efficient and optimised way, and the business achieves ambitious growth targets in an ever-changing environment.
I have spent the past decade coaching hundreds of SMEs to help them to create financial and time freedom, something often harder for small businesses to achieve given how much typically falls to the business owner.
Over 20 years I have found that all businesses struggle with Time, Team or Money issues. I am driven to help organisations overcome these challenges using proven solutions from ActionCOACH, along with my own experience. Together we can exceed your expectations in both your personal and professional life.
I will help you to step out of your business to allow you to work on it, not just in it. We will re-establish and broaden your role as a leader to allow you to take your business to the next level. Together we will focus on where you want your business to be in the short, medium and longer term, and create actionable plans to make progress quickly. We will develop your sales and marketing strategies, build a reliable, high-performing and highly-engaged team and make the most of the resources in your business.
Coaching with Paul
I care passionately
I am here for you. I care as much, or even more , about the success of my client’s businesses as they do themselves. Why? Because your success is what gets me out of bed in the morning. I am motivated to do whatever it takes for you to achieve your business and personal goals.
I am passionate about helping business owners reclaim their lives. All too often business can consume us, making it hard to enjoy whatever else is important. I am committed to helping you find your freedom by getting your business to a place where it’s profitable and effective even when you’re enjoying life outside of work.
A coach has to be honest and even challenge you at times. This doesn’t mean however that it can’t be fun. Together we’ll strike the right balance of pressure and fun, so we make great progress whilst also enjoying ourselves.
Always there with calm but insightful guidance and questions. I always feel that my Action Coach is 100% committed to me as a person and my business.Davis Saunderson - VLS LTD
It was so simple and made so much sense! I am the World's most UNorganised person and I never thought I would have time to do the course, let alone put actions into place.Julia Clifford - iCAN Health and Fitness
It gives me clarity, focus and a plan on what needs doing to move the business forward towards my goals. It's great fun and the other people in the coaching group are such a support.Jill Davies - Granite 5
Working with ActionCOACH has had a huge impact on me and my business. My coach doesn't tell me what to do, but has a canny way of asking the right questions that lead me to make my own decisions. I find the opinion of someone outside of my business very useful to bounce new ideas off and i now have clearly defined goals with a route map on how to achieve them. Thank you. I wish I'd met you 20 years ago!Paul Youngs - Expert Print Management Ltd
