About you

You want to grow as a person, make positive impact and achieve something that is meaningful and authentic to you — as a leader, entrepreneur, freelancer or senior professional.

Maybe you need to unpack your world, and map a clear way forward through competing priorities. Or you already know what you want, but aren’t quite sure how to get there. Or you’re pondering a transformational pivot — for your business, your team, or your career.

Whatever your goal, you are open to exploring new ideas and ways forward. You want to work with purpose, aligned with your values. You want to work with a coach who is capable of inspiring you to think clearly, calmly, creatively and fearlessly.


About me

“Thierry asks questions that nobody else asks.”

A.C., technology consultant and board director (2017)

Hi — my name is Thierry and I’m a certified and accredited executive coach, based near Exeter in Britain’s beautiful South West.

With over 20 years’ experience in various leadership positions and consulting roles, I have worked across multiple sectors around the world — in Geospatial, Digital, Energy, Land & Property, Environment and Education.

In my own time I surf waves, roam across Dartmoor, and swim in the sea all year round.

My passions: a mix of people, nature, creativity. learning — whether swimming mid-winter in the English Channel, walking on Dartmoor, surfing in Cornwall, or sharing knowledge and fun at work.
Looking deeply, sideways

Throughout my career, travelling the world, I have loved learning, connecting and growing — and enabling others to achieve the same. People I’ve worked with have always commented that I see things differently. I wouldn’t know, but it’s true that I’m not someone who easily accepts conventional wisdom or the status quo.

My curiosity constantly informs and evolves the way I work. I find inspiration in nature, people, travel and a wide range of fields spanning art, design and science. Also, my original training as a PhD scientist taught me to strip away layers of a problem until you find its true essence — and the solution reveals itself. Today, this is useful to me as a coach.

Asking the right questions

I’m a strong believer in helping you find your own way, with a coaching approach that is rooted in evidence-based practice and proven to generate results. Although some people come to me for advice, my primary expertise lies in knowing what questions to ask. Questions that will stop you in your tracks and move your thinking to the next level.

Some of my questions may surprise you. Your own answers, perhaps even more. I will challenge and support you with empathy, calm, creativity, impartiality, a sense of humour, and a strong foundation in evidence-based coaching.

My coaching journey

Throughout my career in leadership and consulting I’ve been lucky to be coached by inspirational coaches and mentors, and to have received world-class training in leadership and personal development. This sowed the seeds that ultimately led to me coaching on a professional basis. I’ve since worked with dozens of CEOs, leaders, entrepreneurs and mid-career professionals. So far, over 95% have achieved their desired outcomes.

As a coach I’m accredited to Senior Practitioner level with the European Mentoring & Coaching Council, EMCC. I’m a Member of the UK Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and hold their most senior (Level 7) accredited certification in executive coaching. I’m also a longstanding Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS), with a PhD in geodesy from Newcastle University, UK.

As a lifelong learner I engage in continuous professional development. Like all good coaches I eat my own dog food and work with a coach of my own, including formal coaching supervision. I adhere to the EMCC’s Global Code of Ethics.

You can find me on LinkedIn and Twitter. Check out recent articles, presentations or podcast interviews on my blog. Contact me here.

Keep growing!
