Hi, I’m Shane
You probably have some questions about who I am, my background and what I’m like to work with…
Well, since 2017 I have been the founder and Principal Coach of Summit SCALE® Coaching. I’ve coached small to mid-sized owner-managers across the globe to increase their profits year-on-year, build effective teams to help them run their businesses and get time back for themselves.
I’ve coached in a broad range of sectors including, amongst others, agriculture, arts, healthcare, energy, professional services, real estate, construction, technology, and manufacturing. I use a globally proven business coaching system developed by a network of the best of the best coaches working in 1000s of businesses around the world.
In 2020, Corporate Vision awarded me with UK’s Most Trusted SME Adviser and an Excellence Award in Performance Coaching.
The Corporate Coaching & Recruitment Awards honours those who endeavour to provide businesses with the tools, strategies and people necessary to achieve and exceed their goals, whilst emphasising the importance of promoting talent.
From 2012 to 2016, as CEO, I led a group of seven SME companies, managing the combined revenue growth of 300% in one year and ultimately selling two of the companies for a multi-million sum in a single deal. During this period I led the turn-around of financial performance from a £1.8m loss to £350k profit in 18 months and mobilized an £85m contract for the provision of support services to the UK Border Agency.
Between 1999 to 2011 I was part of a leadership team that grew a real estate business 2000%, from SME to FTSE 250 company in 8 years. As Managing Director – Operations I was responsible for a £240m revenue business unit with £1.83 billion of real estate assets under management and led a team of over 1000 people operating in 135 sites in 23 cities. During this time I oversaw the turn around of business unit performance from £400k loss to £11m net operating profit in two years.
I am a devoted family man and love reading titles on business leadership and management and as a former helicopter pilot all things aviation. I hold a masters degree in coaching and development. I enjoy outdoor pursuits including hiking, sailing, skiing and fly-fishing. Being a kiwi I love my rugby and cricket!
