Specialist Business Advisory and Executive Coaching Services

Supporting and Empowering Your Success

Business Advisory

I work with clients who are starting, running and growing their business which is hard with many distractions, key decision points and conflicting priorities to help them reach the next level.

Typically working closely alongside founders and 'C' suite of enterprise and start-up organisations across many disciplines from R&D, Customer Success and Sales to board level management I have experienced and resolved many of the issues you might be facing to cross the chasm and grow your business.

With my coaching sessions, based on cognitive behavioural techniques, we can explore and resolve immediate and longer term issues with my ultimate aim to make you become your own self-coach for sustainable change.

Sales Advisory

This service is a favourite among many of my clients, as it is often how you sell your product or service that is the most challenging part of running your business.

My job is to give you the advice, tools and techniques to achieve a successful go to market sales strategy based on 30 years experience.

 

I have built a unique best practice for how you tackle the most common sales issues from pipeline creation, business development and value proposition definition to negotiating profitable contracts and closing deals.

Executive Coaching

Through a combination of specialist training in psychodynamic executive coaching and experience working with startup and scaleup companies I take founders and their companies to the next level.

Executive coaching isn't about telling you what to do but uses a technique of carefully thought out questions and hypotheses to help you get the clarity and focus you sometimes feel is missing.

Each coaching session ends up with a set of targeted goals and commitments helping to drive you and your company to its full potential.

 

Client Testimonials

It was great working with Antony, he was able to understand our requirements quickly and identify key areas of focus, particularly with regards to developing customer relationships, prioritising and strategies for growth. He listens, supports and empowers you to take ownership and enjoy the sales and marketing process. His combination of business consulting and coaching was a real benefit.

Antony has worked with me and my business on a number of occasions as a consultant and a coach and I am impressed with his ability to quickly understand a complex business situation and bring teams together to make the most of an opportunity. He always has a relevant real world example on hand to bring hypothetical scenarios to life and help solve difficult problems.

We engaged Antony to help us with a specific sales opportunity to an organisation in a sector we were not familiar with which made us feel out of our depth. Through the use of Antony's PRINCE analytical model this brought insight and clarity to the discussion and walked us through and challenged our understanding of the opportunity. The last thing Antony pushed us on was, "what's the value proposition, why should they buy from TalkFreely and not the other vendors". Remarkably, the last thing the vendor panel said was "we've only got a couple of minutes before we need to wrap up this presentation, help us out, what's the TalkFreely value proposition, help us position your organisation" – we were fully prepared. We won the deal and the feedback was that they appreciated our candid and clear response to that last question (which we assume they asked all of the vendors)
