Jeremy started his career as a professional pianist before being commissioned into the British Army as an Officer in The Life Guards. During his time in the Army, Jeremy taught leadership at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, winning the Queen’s award for the best trained platoon. On leaving, Jeremy became a head-hunter for three years before choosing to develop leaders instead, spending three years with a specialist leadership development company. Since setting up as an independent leadership development coach, Jeremy has worked extensively across a broad range of industries, around the globe and at all business levels. As a business coach, he has at least 3500 hours of experience over the past 25 years in over 150 different companies and more than 30 executive and operating boards.
Jeremy adopts an eclectic approach to coaching, using the best thinking from the classics. He specialises in highly interactive interventions involving activity, reflection, thinking, planning, brainstorming, self- disclosure and feedback, thereby requiring considerable intellectual and emotional commitment from all exec members. With an end goal of developing a confident, high performing executive team, attendees gain confidence in three areas: themselves, each other and what they’re seeking to achieve.
