Gary Weston

Aberdeen, Dundee & North East Scotland

Gary Weston is passionate about training executives, to realise the potential that their companies and staff have lurking just under the surface, waiting for a catalyst to send them on a journey of discovery and growth. He developed his approach to helping and working with SMEs as the continuation of a highly successful corporate career which saw him operate in several continents (including North America, Asia and Europe) and across a wide range of industries (including heavy engineering, electronics, print and electronic directories, telecoms cabling, FMCG, software development, digital media, wholesale/retail operations and CG animation to name but a few).

He has been involved in 4 start-ups and in 3 closures and at one point was responsible for thousands of employees across 9 sites in India, North America and the UK.

For the past 6 years Gary has been delivering business coaching through Vistage International as a Chair from 2009-2013, as an interim manager and NXD at board level for a number of SME companies and most recently as a Strategic Consultant with Scottish Enterprise, delivering a methodology for creating and implementing growth strategies – the Symbiotic Strategy Cycle.
