Spoiled with choice?

Bold as love

Change requires courage.

Working with me requires it too.

Together we uncover the changes you and your business need to make.

To take you to the next level.

Hard truths, a rigorous, collaborative approach.

Combined with compassion and understanding.

I’ll be your #1 fan supporting you every step of the way.

  • Guaranteed X-fold increase in profits? Nope.

  • Proven, tried and tested methods? Yup.

  • Honesty and experienced guidance? 100%

  • Solid, sustainable success? Absolutely.

  • More time and energy? Your choice.

Change needs bold. Bold needs you.

Bold as love.

Love Business.

Choices, choices

You love what you do.

Your business is successful.

You want more.

But...

You're awash with options and spoiled with choice.

Muddying the water with overthinking.

Leading to indecision and procrastination.

And their bedfellows… doubt and fear.

What you want is clarity and certainty.

So you’re free to move forward with complete confidence.

Down to business

Business is a marathon, not a sprint.

I help entrepreneurs who care deeply about their work.

And who want to complete the marathon with their arms in the air.

A smile on their face.

And pride in their heart.

This means putting long-term sustainability ahead of short-term profit.

Something 25 years as an entrepreneur, followed by 21 years supporting other entrepreneurs, and a deep love of business uniquely qualifies me for.

I help grow businesses which:

  • Stand for something.

  • Balance commerce and compassion.

  • Make a difference.

Founder, Delicious Alchemy

"I was running a high growth organisation that was heaving on its keel. I needed help to restructure the business when I met Alan. He helped transform the organisation into a more relaxed, happy place, in which I'm doing far less with no loss of growth or standards. He's very perceptive, with excellent timing during the tussle of boardroom discussions. Alan is a great business coach."

"Alan changed the way we look at the world. He has helped us see things differently from the outside in, and evaluate our internal environment with a fresh perspective, so we’ve been able to restructure effectively. Through his business coaching, Alan helps people to understand their own businesses better than they could before, and he has helped transform ours."

"I needed help with development of funding plans and projections. Working with Alan enabled us to successfully raise the funds required. He also guided me on who and where we should go for the funding, and how we should approach it politically. Alan is an unusual combination of being both analytical and creative. He has a holistic and distinct approach. Alan is very good! He's a solid chap, funny and listens."
