He set up a coaching programme which was rolled out to 15 regional offices and provided coach
training to around 150 staff and integrated organisational partners over a 2-year period. The
coaching programme was based on the McKinsey Model at the time and received excellent reviews,
with many participants describing it as ‘Life Changing’ and ‘Transformative’. It helped the
organisation grow in 3 years from 45 to 150 staff.
