Chris began his early career in the world of media but quickly
established a reputation for being a transformational leader within many of the UK’s top publishing and direct marketing businesses.
Today he is recognised as an entrepreneur and business owner with over
20 years of experience. He is a highly motivated and results-orientated
business coach/consultant with a proven track record of success across blue chip FTSE listed organisations, start-ups and a diverse range of SMEs in both B2B and B2C markets.
He similarly possesses considerable experience of working with, and
for, both family run/owned businesses and private equity backed organisations both in UK and overseas. He is well-versed in initiating and delivering business transformation and change management projects, mergers & acquisition activity, new product development, digital and omni-channel ventures.
Chris combines an innovative, entrepreneurial style along with a highly
collaborative approach to all of his coaching & consultancy work. He is
open, honest and constantly looks to challenge himself and his clients in
search of bigger and better. A former first-class rugby player, Chris maintains his love of the sport although these days, more often than not, he finds himself following and supporting his daughters’ ambitions in the equestrian world.
“My background has taught me that standing still isn’t a strategy for success. I believe that businesses need to constantly re-invent the customer experience in order to be exceptional at the things that matter most to the customer. Only then do businesses realise their true potential. To that extent, whilst change is often challenging for individuals and businesses alike, I am passionate about using my extensive experience and skills to help ambitious business owners realise their true potential.”
Chris is the Founder of Chalkhill Blue, an experienced Transformation
Consultant and a Certified Business Coach
