About Errol:

I lead a dynamic company that provides coaching, mentoring, speaking and training for teachers, organisational leaders, young people and entrepreneurs.

I recently asked a headteacher that hired us to train all of the teaching and non-teaching staff in her school why she chose me. She said, "Errol, I just want my team to stop being grumpy and start being nice." We chuckled about it, but this is exactly what most of our clients want. To get rid of the negativity and grumpiness in their teams and to create a more positive and inspiring culture that improves productivity, performance and well being.

What makes our work transformational is our ability to connect with the hearts and minds of people, especially those that others consider to be difficult to engage. I personally went from being homeless at 16 years old and being involved with tough street gangs to turning it around and becoming an award-winning entrepreneur and best selling author of three books. So, I personally know what it's like to feel stuck in life, without purpose or direction, but very importantly I also know what it takes to get back up, turn things around and start winning.

We can confidently say that every young person, leader or business owner that we work with gets results in their lives and would recommend us to others.

Typical results that people get from working with us are:

Those 'aha' moments that result in financial gains, improved performance and healthier relationships.
Discover the confidence needed to be able to confront difficult situations and step into their biggest challenges.
Teams feel more positive, more connected, and inspired about their futures.

For more information about how I can support you or your organisation simply send me an email or give me a call to arrange a discovery call and we can see if we are a right fit, and hopefully, we make 2020 your best year yet.

Create an Inclusive Culture in Your Organisation

A practical and lasting solution for building and inclusive culture in your organisation or school

Recent events sparked by the murder of George Floyd have ignited a passion to see organisations and teams become more culturally aware and to be more intentional about creating inclusive working environments.

We want to help you create a culture in which all of your staff feel welcome, empowered and included. This, in turn, helps you deliver world-class products/services/education.

Fact: cultural change does not come from instructing staff what language and views they can and cannot have. It comes from educating, challenging and stimulating change from within.

"People have to see it and feel it before they change" John Kotter
