Seb had a 17-year national and international career working for companies such as Arthur Andersen, 3i Group, BAT and Eversheds, the last 10 years of which were in senior sales, key account and marketing roles in the UK and overseas in Europe and Asia.
Since 2003, Seb has been coaching and training around the areas of Business Development and Key Client Management, and he has worked with over 200 individuals helping them become as good as they can be in those roles. Recognising that many people find “sales” intimidating, and drawing on his own experiences working in a law firm, much of his work is around enabling individuals – especially those for whom client management and business development doesn’t come naturally or easily – to apply good practice in a way that allows them to become comfortable, self-supporting and able to sustain their activities over their careers.
Seb is a qualified team coach and is increasingly involved in helping leadership and functional teams significantly improve their performance through helping them develop better relationships both within the team itself, and between the team and the wider organisation in which it operates.
Seb has a coaching qualification from the Academy of Executive Coaching’s Practitioner course in Executive Coaching, is accredited by the ICF and he also holds a Diploma in Team Coaching Mastery.
Organisations he was worked with include Airbus Military UK, Tetra Pak, Cancer Research, BAT, Santander, CibaVision, Petrofac as well as many law and accounting firms.
