Senior leadership coach
Dan is our leadership and management coaching guru.

During this time Dan led the team to year on year profitable growth in an extremely challenging market segment.

He heads up our leadership programmes, providing no nonsense coaching to deliver results and dynamic change at the top. Also INSIGHTs accredited, Dan uses this tool to help develop our clients' leadership and business behaviours.
I started Perfect Pitch in 2003 and it has grown to deliver well-respected work across the UK and Europe. Communication and presentation are absolute passions of mine and I've had over 15 years as a successful consultant specialising in this field, coaching and training at all levels of business and in many varied organisations. A dual background in performing arts and a variety of business roles helps me engage with people. I understand what it is to stand in front of people, the need to form relationships quickly and easily and how to be aware of the messages both our bodies and voices are communicating. I love all things word orientated, creative thinking and storytelling and I'm never far away from a new mnemonic, created to aid clients' learning
I design and deliver many of our programmes and have accreditation in NLP and colour psychology, tools which form the basis of much of my work. I coach on middle manager behaviours and even do a spot of role play with Janet, below (when she'll let me).
Janet is another of our consultants who is truly excellent in her field. She has been working in the corporate sector for over twenty-five years using drama-based training methods to enhance individuals’ personal confidence and skills within the business environment. She has been a professional actor all her adult life appearing on stage, TV and film.
Janet’s niche areas are presentation skills, communication - particularly handling difficult conversations and customer care: developing strong communication techniques through language, listening, eye contact and empathy.
Janet creates bespoke role play and forum theatre programmes for us, often in conjunction with targetted coaching and training.
