You’re in good company

Here’s what some of my clients have to say.

“My relationship with Iain over the past nine years, since we met in Paris during the 2007 world cup, has developed into solid friendship where there is a constant flow of support, advice, leadership and debate between the two of us. He has been a pillar of strength to bounce ideas off when things around me have gotten tough or a friendly ear to listen when I’ve just needed to vent.”

“Iain has penned some brilliant insights on the subject of captaincy. Remember whilst you are continually setting new goals for yourself as a leader, it is imperative that you develop your team. Only then can newly gained knowledge, insights and skills facilitate outstanding performances.”
