Helping You To Transform Your Business
Creating and running a business can be incredibly rewarding. Look where you are now: You have a business that was once an idea in your head - you have created something from nothing. It can feel amazing to see your business grow.
However, it’s not always ‘rosy’ and business leaders can run into problems. Today, more than ever, business leaders are under increasing pressure to continually adapt and grow their businesses in an ever-changing climate:
This is where Business Coaching can help. I help business leaders get results in their life and business. I help them to maximise their own performance as well as the performance of their business. I help them get clarity on the challenges that they face; brain-storm strategies to resolve them and move on to help them transform their life and business.
My Business Coaching programme is a coaching partnership between me and the client (the Business Leader). It’s a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize their personal and professional potential. It facilitates growth for the client.
It’s a unique process for change – it helps the client identify and implement the changes required to resolve the challenges that they face; maximise their own potential as well as maximising the potential of the business.
One of the aims of Business Coaching is to help the client create a clear vision of what success looks like for themself and the business. Coaching also helps the client to create more awareness, accountability and resourcefulness.
The Business Coaching programme consists of a series of 1 to 1 sessions. These sessions are carried out in-person, by video or by phone.
Business Coaching can help the Business Leader get results in many areas of the business including:
What does it take to create success?
...I like to use the quote from Tony Robbins: “Success is 80% mindset and 20% strategy”.
If the business leader has the right mindset - ultimately, they will implement the right strategy. The mindset of the business leader is the key to unlock the opportunity for success for the business.
The client brings a topic to the initial coaching session to discuss with me (see ‘When can Business Coaching help?’ below - for example topics). Typically, the topic is used as the theme for the whole Business Coaching programme (as the topic tends to be a big one). The client and I explore the topic in detail to help define a clear outcome (the ‘big goal’) for the programme.
The ‘big goal’ is usually broken down into smaller goals and ‘milestones’ and these are worked on in the individual sessions. Time is then spent exploring the current situation around the topic in detail. The client and I move on to strategise together to identify and evaluate options to achieve the required outcome. I use a variety of coaching techniques and strategies to support and challenge the client during the coaching sessions.
The client decides on the specific action/s that he or she will commit to, to work on after the session. Coaching also occurs between the sessions as this is when the client works on the agreed action/s and client learning is further developed. I provide support to the client during this time. The outcome of the action/s is reviewed at the next session before determining the next topic and goal to work on.
I have over 30 years of business experience. Before creating my coaching business ‘New Perspectives’, I was co-founder and director of a successful mobile technology company. With my business partners, we developed the business from zero to an annual 8-figure turnover and employed over 30 people.
We navigated the business through the turbulent times of the 2008 global financial crisis; developed the business; helped many customers along the way and on to the successful acquisition of the business. This experience has provided me with a solid foundation to help business leaders through my Business Coaching programme.
I’m an International Coach Federation (ICF) certified coach. I combine my business knowledge, experience and extensive coach training to help my business clients create the life and business that they want.

Here are testimonials from some of my recent clients:
“I was a bit sceptical when I started Business Coaching. But now I am so pleased I did! Kev managed to bring out the business skills I had forgotten I had and gave me the confidence to tackle some issues I knew I had to address but had put off. Our conversations allow me to bounce off ideas that I couldn’t digest during the normal working day and gave me food for thought. After each session I felt refreshed and ready to take on whatever was thrown at me. He has a knack of asking questions that he knows you have the answers to if you dig deep enough and encourages you to find them and to believe in yourself.”
Karen Anfield – Director - 3X Software Ltd
“Being coached by Kev has given me the opportunity to unashamedly think just about myself and the future and to get clarity about my own business development without feeling time-pressured. It’s lonely at the top: I don’t have anyone to talk to about decisions affecting my businesses. No-one should be an island. I was an island before Kev. Coaching is unlocking my blocks. Having the experience of someone else who is in business and speaking through solutions has been very beneficial to me. Coming up with a list of achievable goals to deliver and knowing you need to deliver them is what I wanted out of the coach - and is what I am getting.”
Shelly Barratt – Director - Coya Marketing
“Over the last 6 months Kevin has worked with me as my Executive Coach, during this time he has coached me through a number of key areas. As a coach, he is very calm, knowledgeable and most importantly insightful, he has a great ability to ask the right question or use the right intervention just at the right moment. Working with Kevin has been a very reinforcing and positive experience, where he has afforded me the time and space to allow me to work through the areas I brought to each session in a creative and supportive manner. Kevin is a very natural Coach and I would highly recommend him.”

Management Director – Costain Group plc
