Exploring what's important and then making an impact
I help individuals and teams tell their story with clarity, turn up as confident and authentic versions of themselves and be heard above the noise.
Drawing on extensive experience in marketing, branding and coaching for global brands and startups, I apply this expertise to the most important brand there is - your own.
I run group workshops and events as well as individual coaching and consultancy with an approach based on the simple belief that everyone has a story to tell and in telling these stories we open up a world of opportunity.
And when we can, we hold sessions in the great outdoors to bring new perspectives
(all the imagery on this site is from these sessions).
What do you want to be known for?
Providing all the support needed to bring out a better, more confident you, together we'll develop a clear and engaging narrative that resonates. Something that makes your audience sit up and take note. Something that is quite simply YOU.
You'll explore what's important to you, what you stand for and what you really value. We'll take this and define your impact and opportunity. Employing marketing and innovation approaches we'll help to bring clarity, focus and confidence. Then together, we'll plan A Clear Path Ahead.
You may have a clear vision and need help with the strategy and execution. Or you may need a new perspective and a nudge to help you on your way. Our most popular courses are below and work for both small teams and individuals.
What Now & What Next?
A workshop for change, for direction and for considering what’s really important.
Always talking about doing something different, something that's more you? Feeling burnt out?
Know that it’s time for a change but need that nudge?
Intimidated by all the options?
You know that there’s more to it than this.
If this is you, then this three hour workshop can help you take those first few steps towards something different.
All That Makes Us:
A Foundation in Personal Branding
Our introduction to personal branding, for both teams and individuals, encourages fresh thinking about who you are, what you bring and helps you present yourself in a way that resonates.
By focusing on your values, how you work and your goals as much as the traditional skills and experiences, we'll introduce an approach that will help you develop an authentic brand narrative. One that will be undoubtedly you and can be refined for any audience.
AND SO WE START:
Defining your USP for key audiences
Very clear about your values, assets, purpose and goals?
This session focuses on pulling it all together to develop a powerful proposition and USP that works for you. With a tool developed and used to great effect by hundreds of professionals who have been on the workshop already, We’ll show you how to reach new, multiple audiences with a very clear message that can be refined for each.
OWN THE NARRATIVE:
Raise your profile where it matters
Building your presence and creating opportunity in key areas.
A bespoke, hands-on session to ensure that your message resonates with the people that matter.
Creating your presence through content strategies and media planning, you'll become established as a voice to be heard in your area of interest.

Both for individuals and teams -
and even in the great outdoors
The path may start with a team of colleagues or you might join one of our regular small-group workshops or be completely unrestrained with an immersive one-to-one session, all options are available. And when we can, we run sessions in the Surrey Hills giving an added dimension to the sessions. (All the beautiful outdoor imagery here comes from these sessions).
Individual Orientation Walks
ONE TO ONE COACHING
If you want a one-to-one immersive coaching session I can help. If you're within easy reach of Surrey and the North Downs we can embark on a half or full day walk through the hills and woodlands where together we can reframe, explore and plan ahead within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Whatever the weather, you'll gain new perspectives and emerge reinvigorated.
JOIN A SMALL GROUP
For individuals who want to explore with other like-minded professionals, I offer all our workshops to groups in small numbers and hold these regularly throughout the year allowing for the benefits of networking and shared experience.
There's considerable shared benefit when team members have the opportunity to listen to others, and in turn share what’s important to them. The positive impact on team dynamic, communication and cohesion is dramatic and we've a number of testimonials. All of our workshops are available to teams - both remotely, indoors and outdoors.
If you're interested in a team away-day we can tailor the content to your needs. Our team workshops in the Surrey Hills can even include walks to a remote gin distillery, a vinyard and even a mirco brewery - all with food provided.

Many of those I work with prefer to remain anonymous - here are a selection who are happy to share their experience.
Leatham Green - Executive Director PPMA - Public People Manager Association and MD of The Mindful HR Group
Having worked with Alistair as an individual client I could see the benefit of this course to our future leadership
programme. This course, delivered over two sessions was a huge success, gaining extremely positive feedback
from our ‘Peer into the Future’ cohort of future HRDs. The sessions were lively, engaging and thought provoking
and played a key part in our syllabus and will continue to do so. Highly recommended.’
