Paul is an Executive Leadership Coach specialising in developing senior leaders and high-performing teams.

Before consulting, Paul was a senior officer in the British Army. He commanded elite teams in 44 countries across 5 continents, including the first British deployment to Ukraine. With experience leading in some of the most challenging environments imaginable as an officer in Elite Commando Forces Paul’s leadership skills are second to none. He also served as Head of the British Army’s Training Development Capability, where he oversaw a budget of £196M and led a team of 400. Notably, he was decorated by Queen Elizabeth II, President G.W. Bush, and the Sultan of Brunei.

Today in his consultancy work, he focuses on self, team, and strategy. Paul’s leadership philosophy centres on the idea that great leadership comes from a position of care. His work across public, private, and charity sectors has included working with ultra-high net worth individuals and companies focussing on rapid change and sustainable growth.

He operates with the confidence expected of one with his background but also with an unexpected sensitivity, quickly building rapport and an emotional bond with clients. Paul’s trademark calm approach simply works and is wholly aimed at achieving strategic and personal outcomes, or what he calls “the desired end-state.”

His unwavering commitment to getting the best from leaders means he is adept at:

  • Developing strategically aligned top teams.
  • Removing toxic and dysfunctional behaviours.
  • Accelerating organisational performance.

His experience is underpinned by an array of academic and vocational qualifications.
