.A big shout out to The Business Clinic at Northumbria University who I recently had the pleasure of working with.

The clinic offers a fantastic service that pairs undergraduate and postgraduate business students working on their final dissertation projects with local businesses seeking consultancy services.

I was assigned three students studying BAs in Business and Marketing, Business Management and Entrepreneurship who researched the UK coaching market for me and provided insights beneficial to my work as a coach for business owners and leaders.

Their findings were helpful, revealing that although 92% of business owners who had worked with a coach reported significant business growth, the main barriers identified were a lack of knowledge of how a coach could help them, and the perceived high cost – both of which we can address more effectively.

What I particularly enjoyed, was working with the students as a real-life client over four months. They attended client meetings, presented their findings, and received feedback from me, which I believe was important for their learning experience. A big thank you to Nicola Burnip for managing the process so well.
