"He uses both common sense and creative thinking to achieve results. He's a natural leader, with a strong presence and finely tuned interpersonal skills."

Anna Tydeman

“Stephen was recommended to me at a time when I was seeking to develop in my leadership journey. From day one, Stephen has been a positive influence – always believing in me, but at the same time willing to call out unhelpful habits and mindsets. He takes the time to truly understand what’s important to me and what motivates me, and this has enabled him to personalise his approach which means his advice and guidance can be applied in a practical way. Our conversations help me reflect on my achievements through a different lens with Stephen offering observations and appropriate challenge, and then together we talk about applying those learnings and insights into my future work. He has a unique gift of making people feel heard and accepted, and his belief in my potential has undoubtedly helped me to grow both personally and professionally. And of course, a cup of tea, a walk, and a laugh is always good for the soul!”

Carole Osborne

"I worked with Stephen for a few months after I’d had to make some very tough professional decisions that had taken a toll on me personally. Through our work together…which involved some quite tough conversations, light bulb moments, wellbeing advice, being on the end of the phone if I needed him… we worked through outcomes that then helped me redefine my purpose. The work I did with Stephen has helped me become a better leader for my business and team, but it’s also helped me consider my own wellbeing as an individual"

Stephen's energy and positivity, combined with his business acumen, made him the perfect choice as my business mentor. He has shown me the importance of bringing my whole self to work, leading to a deeper sense of purpose and direction. By identifying my strengths and weaknesses early on, Stephen has empowered me to build confidence, celebrate achievements, and leverage my capabilities to drive the business forward.

I value his fresh perspective and the open, insightful discussions we have about current challenges and future opportunities. Every meeting with Stephen leaves me with a valuable piece of advice that ignites my creativity and motivates me to innovate in different and better ways. Above all, Stephen is always there as my biggest cheerleader, supporting and encouraging me every step of the way.
