WARNING ; This is a bespoke system and NOT an “Out of the Box Business Coach” .
All of our programmes have been developed from learnings from my 20 years ‘experience in Senior Commercial, Business Development and Leadership roles to bring to you our Straight Forward Strategy, that simply just works!
DRIVE for Business takes a complete view of your current consultancy business model and performance and in a helpful and supportive manner, we quickly identify and prioritise specific areas for focus and attention. This normally starts with your commercials and a full business performance review.
Once we have identified your key areas and tasks, we then get to work building up YOUR bespoke Business Strategy Plan. This is designed to help you shortcut route to success and quickly get control of ALL aspects of your business.
We have identified there are 5 main elements that need to be considered to help you short cut your route to business growth success. They are ;
It’s all about YOU at the end of the day and more often than not, the route desire is to have more spare time to spend with your loved ones. However, to get this we need to do some work on your mindset – Don’t panic it won’t hurt, but the process we will go through certainly will get you thinking about your WHY
If you don’t know where your next client is coming from then you are in trouble. In the Business Development Section, we take a deep dive into how your customer journey and sales pipelines are actually working. We also include Marketing, Customer Service and Systems & Processes.
Your team and your network are one of the most important elements of your business. As an expert business you need experts supporting you and these are hard to find!. Once you have found them then you need to keep them and that makes finding them look easy! Staff engagement and development is a great way to supercharge your business growth. However not everyone know the key elements to make this successful.
Finance and Commercial
Profit is your life line. Sales are easy to increase; however profitable sales are another issue. We look at your real time cashflow and make sure you know which levers to pull to make the costs go down and the profit go up. Also we look at Risks and as a consultancy the biggest risks normally sit with your contracts and supply chain.
“What gets measured gets done”. If you don’t regularly keep track of how your consultancy is performing, then how do you know if you can take on an extra client or project. We interrogate your productivity, Time management, your resource planning and reporting to give you a one stop approach to the health of your business.

At the Business Experts Workshop I attended the biggest takeaway from the day was to meet other people who work in different businesses than us, and to understand what they're doing, how they're doing it and this was really powerful. The way that Ian controlled the Masterminding element was like nothing I had seen before and now we know clearly that we need to focus on in our business. - Gary Grant - Property Consultant
Ian delivered and designed the workshop in such a way that was simple and easy to follow, straightforward and no jargon which I really liked. I also like the fact that the businesses were all similar in the sense that we were all Expert Consultancy businesses. There were a lot of similarities about what our requirements were, what challenges we face, and it was really powerful to hear the points of view of other people in terms of what challenges were they facing and the Ian applied those points to each one of our businesses. - Rhiannon Glacken - Accountancy Marketing Expert
I went on the course to see how I could upscale my business as I am very much into business development and worked with various different business coaches before. The day was amazing, it was very structured. There was lots of new content, tips and strategies that I hadn’t seen before and now I have a plan that I can put into practice right away and I’m absolutely looking forward to working with Ian in the future. - Tamsin Henman - Pathogenics Consultant
I came on the course because I am on the process of scaling up my business and the knowledge that I learnt from Ian will help me take the business to the next level. My biggest takeaway from the course is learning how to measure my business. I have been using business coaches in the past and I found Ian's approach much more direct and a lot more bespoke to me, and there's simply no BS, just straight forward tactic. - Maciek Oleksiak - IT Consultant
With the various businesses that I have run in the last 30 to 40 years, we get in the habit where you get stuck in your business. The most valuable element from the workshop is the way Ian looked at our business from a completely different direction. You need someone to prompt you, push you and coach you along the way to look at your business through different eyes. This was really valuable and we took away some great tips to implement straight away . - Jet Shah - Business Support Consultant
Since I have been working on the 60 day Success System, there have been huge changes in both my personal life and with my business - Ian has been instrumental in helping me focus and channel my energy and effort into areas in my business and personal life that were lacking. I am now more organised and structured. My business has already started seeing the benefits. I would recommend that everybody who wants to grow their business has a chat with Ian - it's been a life changing for me. - Jo Wareham - The Little Branding Company
Ian is a truly genuine person; I have been working with Ian for the last 18 months on some really interesting and complex projects. He brings innovation and “out of the box” thinking to what can be seen as an everyday process.
He uses his vast interpersonal skill set to coach and mentor his team as well as others to obtain maximum business and personal performance. – John Kettley – Business Turnaround Specialist
I have known Ian for 7 years and he is one of the most energetic leaders I know. He clearly understands what he wants to achieve out of a task and has this ability to apply himself and his strategies 100%.
He is constantly looking for ways to better himself and any teams around him and he does this with structure and purpose. Ian’s greatest strength lie in his ability to identify coaching opportunities and mentor others to achieve their goals. Emma Nicholls MBA
Ian is passionate about and committed to working with individuals and organisations alike to help them identify opportunity and hidden capabilities.
His coaching and mentoring skills ensure he does not personally dominate the process but actively wraps around his charge to help others deliver and thus take responsibility for actions and outcomes – as evidenced by his excellent Drive System.
Ian’s entrepreneurial approach and leadership style plays well to supporting individuals and organisations well through change processes emerging the other side as either a member or leader of a high performing team. – Helen Wain – Head of Procurement
Ian is coaching me through a career change. I find the methods that he uses are straight forward yet effective and I can honestly recommend him as a coach and mentor. He has a great ability to break down complex situations and then rebuild them into a plan of action that leads to goal attainment.
Ian inspires confidence through coaching techniques that provide you with the tools required to achieve your goals. What shines through the most is Ian’s genuine sincerity, he really cares that you are successful with your business and your career. –Paul Armstrong – Investment Banking
I came on the course to find out more about how my business actually ran and how to take it to the next level. I've been doing it for 20 years but never thought how business coaching could help. It was really an eye opener! The course helped me really understand where my business is and I've got to plan for the next level. Ian's approach was really friendly and the support is something that I never thought I would learn in a group. I get to interact with a group of different businesses where we get to work together and share the same goal. - Luan Jakupaj - M&E Consultant
