Online Business coaching and training


Online coaching for busy agencies

If you would like some coaching support but don't have the time or budget for face-to-face coaching, then consider online coaching. Online coaching offers all the benefits of face-to-face coaching but with added flexibility.

Unlike face-to-face sessions – normally consisting of 2-4 hour long monthly meetings – online sessions can be as short as 30 minutes, although typically they are 60 minutes long and can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly. They offer a cost effective and flexible solution for busy agency owners and staff. Like my face-to-face coaching, the online service also includes phone and email support between sessions.

Technology removes the barriers

Technology is making online coaching more and more straightforward. I use the LiveWebinar platform for our coaching sessions which enables us to communicate easily, share screens, documents and whiteboard ideas. Today, I work with clients in the UK and across the globe including Ireland, the USA, Mexico, Hong Kong and beyond.

What is online coaching?

Not everyone can afford face to face coaching so working with a coach online can be a more cost effective solution both in terms of time and money.


Do i need special software?

Not at all! I use the LiveWebinar online platform, so all you need is a computer (with a microphone and webcam) and an internet connection. Before each online coaching session you will receive a link from me to join the call – and you are ready to go!


Can i switch between online and face-to-face coaching?

Yes, you can! I have some clients who meet me face-to-face every three months, and have online coaching with me in between. It is entirely up to you, based on your schedule and your budget. My objective is to fit in with your need to help you meet your agency's goals.

The online coaching experience

Using online coaching means we can have regular catch ups (every 2 weeks) for an hour. These sessions help me focus, give me confidence in decision making and support me in moving my business forward. Rob and I initially met face to face, I felt comfortable working with him so agreed to work with him online. The sessions work just as well as face to face, with the benefit of being able to easily fit them into my busy schedule.

Creating accountability and focus by working with Rob 2-3 times a month in short sharp bursts is invaluable to me.  He keeps me focused, provides me guidance and gives me the confidence that I am placing my energy in the right areas to move my agency forward. He also creates accountability that ensures I don't get distracted.

Online coaching means I can easily fit the 2-3 sessions into my busy diary.
