Some people I have worked with
Ray is simply one of the most inspiring human beings I have met. Apart from the fact that he is intelligent, analytically strong and smart, his emotional intelligence is stunning. He showed great empathy when I needed it, is an outstanding listener and maintained remarkably high energy levels during interactions that were useful for me at the time. He enabled me to discover some major breakthroughs in my career and life through a few coaching sessions. And it’s just a great pleasure to spend time with a global nomad who has an inspiring life story!
Ray is a gifted coach. He has a truly holistic approach to coaching, which encouraged me to think deeply about my aspirations and potential but also helped me to formulate practical steps for action. I really enjoyed every session we had together – despite at times being challenged and working through some intense emotions. I would recommend Ray to others who are looking for an experienced, thoughtful and intuitive coach
The conversations that I had with Ray were absolutely fantastic. I believe the unique thing Ray does is that rather than giving you the solution, he makes you find it yourself. The best thing of all is that he is relentless in ensuring that one is clear about what needs to happen and then following up on the agreements. He listens well and picks up the issues and even inflections in the voice to decode the intent or motivations for saying something. In a phrase, he is like a ‘dog with bone’. It has given me a lot in terms of personal learning, awareness of my impact on others, how to modify my behaviours to work with a team and meet the needs of myself and others
Ray is an extremely valuable coach that unlocks your potential so that you see yourself as more than you had ever thought possible. His personable nature and yet direct approach makes one realise that it is within you. He has an amazing gift for coaching – I would highly encourage any new managers that are preparing for a stretch in their roles to take full advantage of it
Ray was an excellent coach to work with. He really helped solve some of the real challenges I was facing in my workspace, truly helping me make “lemonade” from lemons. He ensured I kept true to the vision and mission I was trying to drive towards. He was very objective and at the same time personable to work with. Even though the coaching sessions took place over a year, he maintained a clear connection between all of them and helped my team and I contribute to the success of our function/organization
I was fortunate to have Ray assigned as my coach during my leadership development program. He was insightful, knowledgeable, and practical in his advice. An incredibly personable coach, Ray was able to articulate his observations clearly and his experience enabled him to offer me real leadership solutions. In his professional manner, Ray would appropriately stimulate my thought and self-awareness which resulted in genuine leadership development. Anybody looking for coaching/mentoring should consider Ray for his professional, provoking, and personable style
Ray has provided me with mentoring support on several occasions as my business has grown over the years – and each time he has had a significant effect on its development. From him, I have learnt both new ways of thinking and gained new perspectives on the dilemmas and challenges that inevitably accompany the process of growing a business. Ray has a very unusual mix of business experience and knowledge on the one hand (drawn in many ways from his own success), and a deep humanity, understanding of people, emotional intelligence, generosity of spirit and integrity on the other: it’s these latter qualities which mark him out and make it such a privilege and pleasure to work with him. I can recommend him unreservedly
