My Mentor Clients
My mentor clients are business owners and CEOs, throughout the UK. Whether very successful
or currently facing pressing
challenges, all my clients share one thing in common:
they want to be even more successful and to be the best
at what they do. They know, like top sports stars, presidents
and the 80% plus of FTSE 100 CEOs who have coaches/mentors, that
with additional support and encouragement they’ll
have that edge.
Most of my clients already know how to run their businesses.
They have great skills, enthusiasm and determination.
They are not looking for someone to tell them what’s
wrong with their business. They’re looking
for someone to help them hone their strategies, overcome
the practical obstacles that real businesses face every
day and determine how best to capitalise on the opportunities
that come their way.
I am delighted to still be working with my very first client after more than 5 years.

The benefits I received were the chance to be
coached through key decisions and business needs
in a strategic way, by offering time out to think
through possible actions and outcomes, instead
of an off the cuff gut feeling approach. A breakthrough
moment was realising that my vision of a perfect
company would be more satisfying than achieving
my original strategy.
I am sure that continuing the coaching process
with Alastair will help me achieve tough short
and long term personal objectives. I thoroughly
recommend his assistance.”

a few weeks of starting my coaching with Alastair,
already I focus more determinedly on my business – where
I want it to be and the path I’m taking
to get there.
I now have an increased
sense of confidence; there is more certainty
in the way I run my business and this is enabling
me to achieve what I know I can.
I read many business
development books, but it has only been by spending
time working with Alastair on my business that
things have actually happened. The necessity
of scheduling time to focus on the business is
also most enjoyable and rewarding ”
provided me greater focus and clarity, helping
me steer though the complex business negotiations
to purchase my business partnership under the
most favourable terms.
It has been invaluable
being able to talk through different scenarios
without risk and to vent my frustrations! I am
delighted with the work he has done for me in
acting as a sounding board and providing useful
tips about getting the best from difficult situations.
I have no reservation in recommending him.”

was the catalyst to drawing it out and getting
it done. I now realise that everyone needs a guide
at some stage of their life – even top performing
sports stars have a coach.
I have continued
to implement and develop many of the issues and
ideas that came out of the coaching sessions,
and as a result I believe I have a better focus
in my business and personal life.
In summary, I got
tremendous value from working with Alastair in
a short period of time. His style of coaching
was very easy to work with and his insights were
a great help. I can thoroughly recommend him
to anyone who is looking for a coach to take
their business or themselves to the next level.”
Monitor Services Ltd
first considering using a business coach my initial
thoughts were “I’m a management consultant
advising other businesses on best practice and
better ways to manage and market their products
and services, if I need a business coach I shouldn’t
be doing what I do”.
Having spent some time with Alastair and taken
advantage of the free introductory session, I
then realised that a business coach does not
tell you how to run your business or what to
do. Alistair’s value is much greater than
Since I have been receiving business coaching
from Alastair, I have found that we are making
more effective strides towards achieving our
objectives at all levels, steadying our income
stream, reducing our reliance on single large
clients, and not losing sight of the long term
at the expense of the short term.”

a short note to thank you for all your help. I
feel that you have helped me so much that I am
now back in control of the company and can begin
to develop the Dartford branch. I am confident
that as I implement all that you have taught me,
NFL will go from strength to strength.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for
your guidance and encouragement. I have no doubt
that without it, I would have given up months ago.
For the first time in a long time I feel full of
enthusiasm and determination to make NFL work and
I owe it to you.
My deepest gratitude.”
