Business Coaching & Mentoring

I’m the founder of Simply Great Britain and have worked in business as a trainer, speaker, coach and mentor for 20 years (longer version of my story). My approach to business is an holistic one, never losing sight of the fact that owning a business has to be sustainable for body, mind and spirit (not to mention the planet).

As a business owner, I am very aware that most people start a business to create change after other careers & lives. I work closely with clients to help implement that change, develop thinking & evolve ideas. We might work together around topics to develop skills and confidence in story telling, marketing or building a business that creates the life you want.

My focus is to help you explore what is possible both for you and for your business using a variety of techniques and opportunities from progressing thinking through business coaching, supporting your business development through mentoring to bespoke training courses to meet your needs. 

I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketers (ACIM), Institute of Digital Marketing (IDM), The European Mentoring & Coaching Council UK (EMCC) and The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM).

My approach is down to earth, full of empathy, fun and without jargon. You can work with me using video calls or in person if that’s practical. To work with me, please get in touch .

An initial 1 hour video call and starter plan is just £95. After this we can scope out budget and time friendly options.

Video calls with Emily have helped keep me on track for the last couple of years. I've found them a wonderful space to bounce ideas, formulate ideas and plan a campaign. It's also a great way to get an opinion from someone who isn't involved in the business. They can be as structured or as informal as you need.

Since then I’ve worked with a large range of different enterprises, organisations and groups providing clear, structured consultancy, training & support.

I am a highly experienced trainer, business coach & consultant & currently the Entrepreneur in Residence at Staffordshire University.
