Hi, I’m Shane.
You probably have some questions about who I am, my background and what I’m like to work with…
I believe that for coaching to work there needs to be a really good fit between the coach and the client.
When considering working with me, I think it’s important that you understand more about me to see if we should take the first step of working together. And that step is a small one – an initial conversation to better understand your situation.
On this page, I’ll share the following information (you can click the links to jump to the parts you’re interested in):
My Qualifications and Experience
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.
During my study and training for my master’s degree in Coaching and Development, I was tutored by some amazing Sports Coaches, including the father of performance coaching, Sir John Whitmore. They brought their sporting success to the world of business. However, I don’t believe that qualifications alone are the best way to determine the quality of a coach. Results are!
In 2021 CEO Monthly awarded me with Business Coaching Leader of the Year (UK) and part of their annual Global CEO Excellence Awards.
The CEO Monthly annual Global CEO Excellence Awards honours those who demonstrate expertise within a given field, dedication to customers service and commitment to excellence and innovation following an in-depth evaluation of skills and services on offer and the wider market reputation.
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 mobilisation of contracts for the provision of support services to the UK Border Agency & the UK Ministry of Defence.
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 and led a team of over 1200 people serving 40,000 customers across 135 sites and 23 cities. During this time I oversaw the turnaround of business unit performance from £400k loss to £11m net operating profit in two years.
