 COOs Get Faster Results 

I work globally with COOs and hands-on Executives in rapidly scaling businesses. They partner with me to become stronger leaders and for my help making their teams high performing. I enable these accelerated results by using a proven scale-up system tailored to their timelines, stage and need to grow fast.

 The COO 



Using a proprietary operating system built on a set of simple proven frameworks, I support COOs and Ops Execs on the four areas they need to get right to scale successful - Strategy | Execution | People | Go-To-Market.  By customizing these frameworks to their business stage Ops Execs can get control of complexity and can focus their teams on the results that matter.

 The ScaleUp   Fundraising   Fast-Forward 

Having sat on all sides of the table and been involved with $Bs of fundraising I know what it takes to perfect your pitch and set yourself up for a streamlined process. My fundraising playbook is free to read, but if you want even more tools, templates and techniques get in touch.

 The COO   Leadership   Level-Up 

Understanding first-hand the responsibilities and challenges that come with serving both a business and your people, I know what it takes to make this balance work. I have limited bandwidth, but I always find time to mentor a few high potential COOs and future COOs that I like. My approach is to share my unique experience, habit hacks, connections and to ask the right questions.

On A Mission To Help
COOs Scale Results

I have spent over 25 years transforming businesses and executive teams by making things happen faster, bigger and more systematically. From my own startups; to being Google’s first Chief-of-Staff; the COO at SoftBank International and a number of $10-100Ms funded scale-ups; and more recently mentoring scale-up CXOs, my experience in helping businesses scale is extensive.


I lived and worked in Silicon Valley for nearly 15 years, and have spent my career working throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Today I am based in London but still help teams across EMEA and sometimes globally.

COOs... please skip
the trial and error…

Whatever your situation, it is not unique, well certainly not 100% unique. Many many smart people before you (and me) have faced the same challenges. Some failed. Some succeeded. Why not learn from both cases?


I was asked recently how long it took me to write my playbooks… honestly, 25 years! And I refresh them every time I learn something better. They do not contain the perfect answers (hint: it doesn’t exist), but almost always they give you the 80% solution you can quickly customize and iterate on to make your own.
