Gwyn has advised FTSE and multinational organisations on leadership and talent strategy, identification and development for more than 30 years. Core to this has been C-suite/ executive-level coaching. He has coached at all levels in multinational, private sector and professional services businesses, as well public sector organizations and has worked across Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Far East and Australasia.
Gwyn originally worked in the Aerospace Industry, managing cross-European system design and selection projects, using psychology to design control systems. It was here that his passion for developing people and their potential was ignited. He moved into consultancy and eventually co-founded and ran one of the UK’s largest Business Psychology companies. His consultancy experience is balanced with a role as HR Director, working as part of a private equity backed sale and integration of several restaurant chains into the Casual Dining Group.
Gwyn is passionate about spotting and growing the potential of leaders and their teams and gets satisfaction from seeing them understand their potential and achieve things they never thought they could. His coaching style is focused, commercial and straightforward, amicably challenging and blended with an informal and unpretentious approach. He believes that understanding the commercial and operational context in which coachees are working is central to achieving success.
Gwyn is an Accredited Executive Coach, Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. He has a BSc (Tech) in Occupational Psychology, MPhil in Applied Business Psychology and am a Licensed NLP practitioner and Chartered Scientist.
Outside work Gwyn has four teenage sons, too many bikes, even more guitars, and a fascination with anything that flies.
“Never in my career have I experienced coaching which combined the right time, the right focus, and the right coach – it exceeded my expectations.”
