Lives & works in…
Let’s start in the middle, shall we? My background is in the NHS (National Health Service), specialising in Project and Programme Management. During my time there, I had the privilege of coaching and mentoring people on many diverse paths. I supported them to navigate career transitions, excel in their current roles, or even spearhead large-scale projects that improved the lives of thousands of patients.
In 2022, I added to my coaching skills by becoming an ICF (International Coach Federation) approved Coach, which helps me apply my own expertise to each coaching relationship alongside proven structures, frameworks and methods. My manner is positive, relaxed and practical.
You’ll find my experience supporting small businesses to launch, attract investment and grow sustainably has also translated to my coaching. I work best with clients who are serious about making a change to their careers and pursuing the life they most want to live.
“I‘ve seen first-hand the wider impact art can have on a community. That’s why my goal is to inspire people to do what inspires them. I feel that supporting creatives and artists to do what they do best, will ultimately help make the world a better place.”
MICHAEL’S 3 TIPS FOR CREATIVES
SET THE STAGE
Take the time to define your vision, values and goals.
Think about who you want to reach, and the impact you want to have. Set these things for a clear and focused future.
INVEST IN YOUR MINDSET
There will be tough times, so it’s important to focus on building resilience and surrounding yourself with positive influences.
Who can you turn to for advice and support?
CONNECT, ONLINE & OFF
You may find it painful, but network.
Get to those events, exhibitions and conferences, use social media, find creative partnerships.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
MICHAEL’S COACHING EXPERIENCE
I’ve coached and mentored people across the NHS to help them set and reach their most important goals – both professional and personal. Along the way, I’ve led group coaching workshops for NHS leaders across Mid and South Essex, and worked with the talented Tate Collective Producers (TCPs) at Tate Modern.
My coaching journey hasn’t been confined to traditional spaces, either. I curated and co-delivered an artist residency program at Chelsea Space, dedicated to experimental curatorial projects. I’ve completed a certificate in professional coaching practice with Full Circle, and am an ICF Approved Coach. I hold a Life Coaching Diploma with the Centre of Excellence.
