Simon Marshall

Senior Partner & Business Growth Specialist & Executive Coach

Simon’s interest in business and underlying entrepreneurial skills have been invaluable throughout his successful career in London.  Having worked with several large financial institutions, consultants and advisors, one of Simon’s biggest buzzes is being instrumental in the acquisition of finance to build one of London’s most iconic buildings, The Shard.

With the City behind him, Simon now works closer to home and focuses on helping people make their business more successful and accomplish what they wish to achieve. No matter what that need may be, Simon believes we can all achieve a rewarding lifestyle and realise our business goals.

Simon is a dedicated family man and everything he does is with his wife and two daughters at the forefront of his mind. His passion for business and an entrepreneurial flair began when he was 17 years old, when he set up a market stall with his two best friends. They believed they would become millionaires!  From this early age, Simon was motivated and inspired, and he went on to achieve a first-class honours degree in finance including business management.

Lily Marshall

Security Officer

I am a bit scruffy but I am very loveable and playful and always look out for my owners. I do get a bit jealous when my sister Lola gets stroked and often ‘move her aside’! I love meeting other dogs on my walks, enjoy spending time with my family and getting warm in front of a log fire. I love my cosy bed in the office and keeping my owners company.  My main role is letting people in the office know when somebody is at the door!

Lola Marshall

Security Officer

I am extremely affectionate and enjoy snuggling up for a lovely cuddle. I love my sister Lily but she does like to steal the limelight a bit sometimes. I enjoy my walks but my favourite pastime is sorting through the bins and finding scraps of delicious stale food! I like wandering around the office picking up a stroke here and there wherever I can.  When my sister is asleep I keep an ear out for visitors knocking at the door too!

Rob Pickering

Director & Coach

During 20+ years in business the constant for Rob was always his love of training and inspiring people to develop their skills. Not content with skills in one area of business, Rob worked tirelessly at developing his knowledge across all areas. Of course knowing something and being able to teach it are two very different things. Rob has the patience and the focus to do whatever it takes to get the enthusiasm and knowledge across.

As an experienced Business Coach, Rob is committed to helping Business Owners achieve greater success. His expertise span sales, marketing, strategic planning, training, recruiting, team management and much more

Most often Rob works with businesses that are already successful and profitable. Perhaps you’re doing OK but wondering what the next step should be? How to get to the next level of growth, the next level of profit, or even wondering about exit options. As your coach, Rob will start by finding out what’s really important to you. This can be harder to put into words than you’d imagine, but achieving it is liberating. The clarity of knowing where you’re going makes it easy to work out what your options are.
