MURRAY GUEST – Second-time speaker at the CliftonStrengths Summit.

Do you run your own coaching business, but have trouble attracting clients? Do want tips, strategies and insights to grow your business and fast track your success in a non-salesy way?

Do you want to make the transition from a corporate role to being a full-time coach? Do you feel a yearning to follow your passion as a coach?

I understand what this can feel like and understand the challenges of growing a business, with a family and other responsibilities. I made the transition after a head vs heart wrestle a few years ago and have never looked back. I’m passionate about sharing what I know works and doesn’t to help you follow your heart and be successful.

Just before the Gallup Strengths Summit in Omaha, on the 17th of July, I will be facilitating a half-day workshop for coaches to develop and grow their business!  I will be sharing the insights, tips and techniques that have enabled me to create a thriving business, strong client partnerships in a non-salesy way.

After over 20 years in corporate roles which included roles as an L&D Manager, BD Manager and QA Manager, I followed my heart and started my own business as a coach, facilitator and consultant.

Through drawing on experiences and knowledge in corporate roles, understanding the needs of organizations, using a coach approach and passion for serving others I successfully transitioned to business coach and I want to share how with you, so you can be your best every day!
