Coaching with the Training Box

If you are an HR professional or team leader looking for support for one of your senior colleagues to fulfill their potential and move from already ‘good’ to the sphere of ‘outstanding’ in what they achieve then come to The Training Box


As the UK Director of The Training Box  I work with the founder Maureen Steele in many aspects of the business development.  As one of The Training Box coaches I have worked with a variety of international and global ‘blue-chip’ employers taking individuals who are identified as having potential supporting and helping them as they transform from ‘already good’ into ‘truly excellent’ communicators in their field.

“John and I have been friends and colleagues for many years now. Having collaborated on a wide-range projects together at The Training Box since it was founded in 2006, it was a great pleasure in 2013 to bring John on Board as a fellow Director of the company, thus recognising the value of his contribution to the business.

Supported by his experience in senior management/business consulting, and his professional acting training, John is well-placed as a coach to grow your personal effectiveness and enhance the positive impact you can have on those around you. With his unique blend of skills, talents and experiences, he will keep you on track towards your overall ambitions and goals. You will find his enthusiasm, natural warmth and open approach infectious and you will be inspired to bring about the successful outcomes that are important to you. ”
