Have you ever felt disempowered, stuck in a rut, frustrated at the incompetence of more senior leaders, overwhelmed, isolated, or fragile? Ever been part of a team that is less than the sum of its parts – dysfunctional, with a blame culture that you could sharpen knives on, working too hard but getting poor results anyway? Is there a danger that you are falling into the same traps now that you are leading your organisation or team?

Hugh has been coaching people and teams to overcome these kinds of problems for 39 years. He is driven by his obsession with empowering people for real, with stimulating positive change that sticks, and with building high performing teams and companies. Hard to categorise, he has been described as a ‘secret weapon of understanding’, as a master facilitator, as a talent management expert, as a master of ceremonies, as an executive or business coach – and even as a beacon of hope!

Originally Hugh worked with teenagers ‘at risk’ in some of the toughest communities in the west of Scotland, pioneering coaching techniques that are still regarded as cutting edge today. He was an entrepreneurial community development worker, building over 130 jobs and roles from nothing in a pilot project in Glasgow, and has continued to be truly entrepreneurial in building successful people and organisations ever since.

He has been the primary parent in his family, enabling his wife to build a successful international corporate career and both daughters to follow their own dreams and passions.
