I believe we are defined by the difference we make in the world. In addition to my work with entrepreneurs and business leaders, I like to find other ways to make a positive impact.
One of my ambitions when I left the corporate world, was to re-balance my life equally into three parts: work, volunteering/social impact and play.
Over the years, I have worked in prisons, probation, drug treatment centres and with many youth organisations bringing the power of coaching and personal development to people who are yet to become business leaders or entrepreneurs.
By offering a transformative experience either early in life or at a point of crisis, I hope to make a difference to people from all walks of life.
The social impact I deliver takes many forms:
Supporting non profit organisations to be awesome. This is typically through being a Governor, Non-Exec Director or Trustee
As an Enterprise Adviser for Greater Manchester Combined Authority
Supporting social sector leaders through delivering workshops, seminars and pro-bono consultancy
Delivering coaching/mentoring or training to emerging social impact leaders
Delivering half priced coaching for CEOs of small non profit organisations (under £250k turnover) so they get double the experience thanks to the work I do with corporates
Other social impact work that gives me a buzz and where I can make a difference
If you'd like to make a recommendation of an organisation or non-profit CEO who might benefit from this, do feel free to let me know.
I've also worked with clients who've wanted to nominate the organisation/individual that will benefit from their commission. If this is you, let me know and we can see what can be done!
