Helping leaders achieve their goals and dreams, as others helped me achieve mine, is the reason I became a Vistage Chair. Having spent my working life leading, mentoring and coaching high-performing teams, I know the value of getting the right support at every stage of your leadership journey. Leadership is tough and far better if you don’t go it alone.

In the two decades I’ve helped leaders and teams unlock potential, I’ve seen first-hand the impact good – and bad – leaders have on business success. People don’t work for organisations, they work for people. The better the leadership, the happier the team and healthier the business in terms of sales, revenue, people growth and retention rates. Leadership isn’t an endpoint, it’s a continuous climb that requires continual nurturing and support.

“Jim goes above and beyond to coach, improve and encourage. I have learned a considerable amount from Jim during my time working with him and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough”. Owen Leonard, Hybrid

One of the key benefits of joining Vistage is the sheer diversity you find within peer groups, which can help you see business challenges, solutions and opportunities in enlightening new ways. I like to think of my Vistage peer group as being the perfect cake mix, a diverse group of leaders collectively offering all the magic ingredients you need to help your business climb much further, faster and importantly, have fun along the way.
