Anthony is a leadership and high performance specialist with over fourteen years experience of working at all levels, including board directors and CEOs.  He helps clients to develop and achieve as individuals; to think clearly and creatively; to communicate effectively; to enhance their ‘presence’; and to build and lead cohesive, motivated, high performing teams/organisations.  He works across the private, public and third sectors.

Previously he held a number of challenging senior leadership appointments, culminating as Director of Educational and Training Services for the British Army (in the rank of Brigadier) - responsible for learning and development across the whole Army (some 100,000 people).  He brings this knowledge, experience and credibility to all his current activities to great effect - supporting and challenging leaders at all levels to grow and be true leaders (not simply ‘in charge’) in every way – in all that they do.

Anthony is a Qualified Coach and Leadership Mentor - ILM Level 7 Diploma in Leadership Mentoring and Executive Coaching, and also holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Further Education).  He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA); a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute; an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Continuing Professional Development; and a Member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council.

Clients describe Anthony as “superb”, “enlightening”, “both supportive and challenging”, “truly transformative”; and summarise testimonials with expressions such as “made me a better leader”, “significantly more effective in my role”, “regained my confidence”, “had a huge impact on my career”, “I am able to grow, and grow, and grow”.
