Business coaching and consultancy can help you run your business more efficiently
I’ve learned a huge amount from setting up several successful businesses of my own over the last 16 years as well as working with other start-ups and young businesses. In my business coaching and consultancy programs, I give my clients the benefit of my experience of running a business, good and bad. This can save you time and money, as well as a lot of stress and anxiety! Whilst project managing your growth strategy, I help you focus on your productivity and accountability, so you make quicker progress. You also have me as a sounding board to ask for advice and support.
Looking after my clients
It is important to me that my clients look after themselves – after all, without your health, your business could be in jeopardy, especially if you are a sole trader. We take time in the program to include elements of self-care too, so that mind and body are working together in alignment and you reach your fullest potential with a smoother, quicker journey.
My “zone of genius” is…
giving you creative marketing ideas that work; making you and your brand stand out from the crowd as well as troubleshooting and spotting current and potential issues. Clients call me the “Voice of Reason” as I will keep you focused and on track, saving you time and money. I am passionate about helping my clients grow their business and also “connect” my clients to suppliers and potential clients from my network, avidly promoting them wherever possible.
A client testimonial…

Thank you Jo.
My experience in running my own businesses
Prior to working as a business coach, I have over over 30 years of business experience. I worked for many years in investment banking and blue-chip corporations before becoming self-employed 16 years ago. During that time I set-up several successful companies and business ventures, including:
- I launched and managed a luxury day spa and beauty salon for 6 years, with a team of 13 therapists.
- A design, print, web and media agency, part of which included initial concept, designing and selling our own magazines, delivered directly to an ABC1 audience of 80,000 each month. I employed a team of 8.
- An online sales site that is still one of “the” sites to visit in its industry, regularly promoted in national and trade press. The website featured on “This Morning” TV show and is recommended regularly in articles by Martin Lewis, money saving expert.
I attend many courses in person and online, so am constantly keeping up with new technology and resources. I have had personal coaching from successful business entrepreneurs such as Shaa Wasmund, Lewis Howes, Lenka Lutonska and Ruth Kudzi. Currently I have two coaches and mentors, as I believe it is important to always be striving for self-improvement.
In 2019 I completed my Master NLP Practitioner qualification and also a Life Coaching qualification. These have enhanced my business coaching, consultancy and communication skills.
