Elliot allowed me to talk openly and honestly in a private environment. His outstanding knowledge and advice on sometimes basic matters are invaluable. He always provides me with a sensible, thought provoking and realistic approach to my ongoing business challenges. It’s refreshing to know that I can pick the phone up at any time for a friendly chat and reassurance in what we are doing is correct.

I think all of us are in constant transition. You have the big obvious ones like career change or moving country and then some are subtle and more reflective, like when you are ready to make a personal leap forward in how you will hold yourself accountable. The death of my father was just one of the events that precipitated a personal crisis and a crisis in our family business. As I stepped up and into a new role as MD, I sought out professional executive support to assist, advise and help me through this transition. Elliot and TAB came highly recommended and have become an integral part of my business and my circle of trust. Elliot offers a progressive balance between coaching, mentoring, teaching and challenging that has helped me move strategic initiatives forward in a more balanced, comprehensive and effective manner. Elliot encouraged me think more deeply about my role, he helped clarify my focus, he challenged me to develop new ways to lead people over a long and sustained period. Elliot helped my personal development and as we discussed my business in depth I became more comfortable sharing my thoughts. Furthermore; Elliot pushed me to review and make substantive changes to my interactions with peers, leaders and staff so that I may provide the clear feedback and guidance they need from me. I would summarise the most important tangible benefits as… • Elliot provides frank, independent, neutral advice that may be difficult to find inside your own workplace • Elliot allows you to talk about how to run a business or consider new ideas with other company directors • When needed, Elliot is my conscience and mentor, he keeps me on track and accountable. • Elliot is a confidant who demonstrates genuine empathy and understanding – whether you need to change abruptly or evolve gently, Elliot will be there.

Business support comes from different ways. Our companies use services that support procedures and staff. But as business owners where do you turn to for good honest advice, especially guidance you can trust! Without sounding like a marketing sales person you need Elliot Rich. In the past 2 years he has really helped the transformation of our business and myself as a business owner. Working with Elliot on a 1-2-1 level and as part of a TAB board in York which Elliot facilitates. I know that everyone is different and responds to help in different ways, this is by far Elliot’s strength in working with you in a way that resonates. Trust is hard earned and I can honestly say that I know that any advice and coaching Elliot does with me is based on his 25 years’ experience in a Directors role. If you are thinking how best to support yourself and your business I would recommend Elliot to make that difference.
