An experienced and expert career coach. Steve has helped thousands of people unlock their true potential and move into jobs or careers they love, whether advancing their careers, changing careers or starting their own businesses, especially following redundancy or when stuck in a career rut.
Supporting people through redundancy and career change. Helping people re-evaluate their careers, uncover their hidden talents to establish their true marketability, and coaching people to win at interviews!
I’m a highly professional and experienced career coach, career change and outplacement specialist.
Recognised as 'The Career Catalyst', I've just published a 4 set CD audio book 'I Want a Career Change - 6 steps to navigate the way to a brighter future' and am currently in discussions with publishers for my forthcoming book regarding the 6 step Career Navigation Cycle process I have developed to achieve successful career transition. I’ve written numerous articles for well-known career websites and journals and have also established an excellent reputation for public speaking at high-profile career events.
I’ve worked in sales, operations and HR positions throughout my career and have achieved great success in consistently developing managers, teams and individuals to maximise their potential and deliver excellent performance.
Most importantly, I've supported thousands of men and women across many sectors to:
• Unlock their potential
• Achieve successful career transitions and career changes into new jobs and careers
• Set up their own businesses and become the architect of their own futures
I am passionate about making a difference to people at all stages in their career, especially aspiring managers and executives.
I also love helping clients realise their unique skills and attributes so we can realise career goals together. I get a huge buzz from seeing people’s confidence grow and then move forward to get the job or career they really want.
