Ian takes great delight in helping others to progress and to achieve; this is particularly so of teenagers and young adults. He is an Accredited Practitioner Coach (IAPC&M) and has been Noble Manhattan Coaching’s (NMC) licensed distributor for UK and Ireland and lead developer, in association with the School Wellbeing Alliance, of the NMC Adolescent and Child Coaching training programme since its inception in 2016.
Now in his third career, Ian considers that this is the one that gives him the most pleasure. Born in Cornwall and ‘made in the Royal Navy’ he spent his first career flying helicopters and as a military operations specialist. Leaving the RN in 2000, he then owned and managed two high street retail organisations, including a school uniform shop which, naturally, brought him close to schools, students and their parents. Through this he identified the challenges that the sector was/is facing, particularly with the lack of students’ soft skills development, and compounded through COVID-19 lockdowns. With offspring (7) spread across the primary and secondary school years, he is committed to ensuring that they and their peers are offered the best education additional to academics.
Ian is founder and director of Young Minds Coaching C.I.C., a Community Interest Company (not for profit) focusing on providing NMC’s training programmes to school staff, parents and others supporting today’s young generations as they develop towards adulthood and the workplace.
