I would highly recommend Ian. He worked on some challenging projects with us and was always professional, diligent and fun to work with. His calm and methodical approach always worked well with our clients and I would have no hesitation in working with him again in the future.

Neil Watkins, Director, White Consultants Ltd (WCL)

Ian did an outstanding job of facilitating senior leadership in our organisation through strategy workshops. The creative outcomes and team cohesion came down to Ian's exceptional facilitation skills.

Krysta Fox, Director Free Zone - DMCC/JLT, Dubai and formerly Finance Director, Supreme Fuels FZE

Ian is a fastidious and conscientious consultant who is highly regarded by his clients for his delivery, focus and out-of-the-box approach to developing solutions. His extensive experience has enabled him to develop a wide range of methods and tools that give clients a much wider range of options than they otherwise would have. He is a top class consultant.

Wale Buraimoh, Managing Partner at Stratex One Partners

I highly recommend Ian as a superb business coach. In the few weeks that he worked with me he has helped me advance my business and key personal skills to a degree that would have taken me many months, even years to achieve without his help.

Jaime Byrne, Executive Director, Utility Warehouse

I attended one of Ian's Speak Up Speak Out! seminars despite my conviction that I can't bear speaking in public and that nothing can change this 'fact' ...well, I was wrong. Ian's techniques and the manner in which he conveyed them made this one of the most useful and enjoyable seminars I've attended, ever. Highly recommended!

Celia Mannings, Area Manager at Arbonne International, Celia Mannings Photography

A very sharp and intellectually capable individual. Ian is an excellent leader, thinker and problem solver.

Andrew Carwardine, Director Maritime and Defence at Allocate Software

Ian is an extremely reliable, professional and fun guy. He exhibits a wonderful attention to detail, extremely eloquent way of communicating and a caring, grounded presence. Great attributes for a coach! Plus, he regularly demonstrates many strengths in leadership in both his work and social life.

RACHEL BAMBER, CEO at Brighter Thinking Limited, Mentor at Neuroleadership Institute

Ian is hard-working and talented - furthermore, in these challenging times he delivers! He has my strongest possible endorsement.

Ian Simpson, Director, Sonden Ltd

I found Ian's personalized programme, innovative, insightful, user-friendly and extremely helpful. Ian has a fantastic 'bedside manner' and possesses the ability to address an eclectic audience - demonstrated no better than through the wide range of ... attendees.

Charles Major, Business Development Manager, Lloyds Commercial

From an HR perspective, I found Ian to be a breath of fresh air in his ability to identify the strengths and potential of staff and his foresight in developing abilities to strengthen the capabilities of the Company.

Linda Kenyon, HR Manager, Babcock International Group

I was lucky enough to be part of a management team in which Ian facilitated various strategic planning working groups. His ability to work the group of alpha males into thinking as a focused team and to produce workable solutions at the conclusion proves his approach was both appropriate for the group and economical. I would recommend Ian to any Company that wants to change direction, to build or enhance their management team.

Jeffrey Whitworth, Supply Chain manager, Supreme Fuels FZE

I attended a Speak Up! Speak Out! workshop in September. The 2 hour session helped me to plan and deliver a far more effective short presentation just 3 days later. This man really walks the walk - I shall be happy when I can present material in as engaging and relaxed a style as he can.
