Steve Gilroy

London

Steve’s background is a mix of international business, technology, learning, sales and marketing. Over the past 30 years, Steve has led businesses ranging in size from £2m up to £100m and has been involved in a wide range of businesses, from early-stage technology firms to being a senior executive for several global organisations. He has also successfully completed several acquisitions and exits.

In addition to his passion for learning and technology, Steve has delivered hundreds of workshops and projects, showing businesses how to re-engineer their sales process and marketing ‘engine’. His experience in businesses large and small, combined with his knowledge of how organisations and leaders can learn faster, has allowed him to guide entrepreneurs and senior executives to achieve their goals through the application of clear business plans, tools and templates that accelerate their progress. He has coached and developed business leaders and entrepreneurs in the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the USA.

Steve chairs Vistage groups in London. The groups are suitable for passionate business owners, MDs or CEOs, who want to tackle their issues and improve both their business results and their own leadership skills.

The very best business coaches and peer group mentoring.

Vistage Chairs are seasoned business executives and come from a variety of backgrounds and industries. We hand-pick them based on some common and well-proven criteria. They’re great listeners; they’re people-orientated and results driven. The role of a Vistage Chair is to ensure that every bit of experience and wisdom is applied in each Vistage meeting. Our Chairs are accomplished leaders (many are former MDs or CEOs). They are part facilitator, part performance coach and are committed to the success of their group members.
