In the short time that I worked with Steve he was nothing less than impressive. He stands out from his contemporaries in his approach to business delivery and receptiveness to customer requirements. Within the Arab Gulf setting his adeptness at cross-culture communication is outstanding, this together with his sympathetic approach to local customs and religious observances has enabled him to consistently deliver high quality consultancy. His technical skills are unquestionable, only matched by his ability to give the customer exactly was is needed. His positive work ethic together with his personable character, makes him a stand-out team player and a high-value asset to any organisation.

Steve’s Leadership Program was high quality and very engaging. His knowledge is in depth, inspirational and very informative. I did not feel at any point that the session was dragging, as the level of energy and enthusiasm within us was consistently high. Steve encouraged us to reflect on the challenges and opportunities in each of the area discussed whilst allowing us to find our own answers. I strongly recommend to work with Steve.
Deep knowledge transfer in a natural engaging and effective style.
My hats off to Steve for delivering the program with such passion, enthusiasm and clarity. A charming, personable and confident speaker who had the audience engaged and motivated. He’s a brilliant presenter who listened to his audience and was able to tailor his presentation to fit their needs. It was an amazing and inspirational experience thanks to Steve’s knowledge and talents.

My experience with Steve has heightened my sense of awareness in the impact I have on my team and key stake holders working in such a senior role . The coaching contract allowed me to reflect more consciously and learn how to build relationships and overall develop my emotional intelligence to get the best out of me and my clients. Thank you for being you, Steve.
Group Commercial Director
I enlisted the services of Steve in 2011 post creation of my company PDS Solutions in 2008. As Director of PDS Solutions I am responsible for 5 employees of varying skill sets and personal attributes. I found I was struggling with a series of management skills, such as: Communication, Delegation and distinction between leadership and personal relationships. As a consequence of the above Steve Coached and mentored me through this process.
Steve and I worked together on a groundbreaking training package for Soldiers at the Army Technical Foundation College. Due to the adolescent nature of the students and new initiatives brought about through defence policy, staff at the college needed to be highly trained leaders and coaches. Steve’s experience, knowledge of training, leadership and coaching was extremely valuable when developing this package. He is an outstanding all-rounder in the field of training. I truly hope that we have the opportunity to work together again at some stage.

I have known/operated with Steve for a number of years and the principal and lasting impression I have of him, is that he is the consummate professional. Steve’s success is achieved in part by his considerable depth of knowledge, heavily weighted by proven experience notably in the ‘Training and Leadership Development Approach’.
Steve is also great company ‘on or off the pitch’; this I assess combined with his huge capacity for getting the best out of a given situation makes him ‘Top Draw’!
