Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, South Africa

A Port Elizabeth based Executive and Business coach supporting independent businesses in South Africa and the UK.

Jeremy started his career in the corporate world with IBM and after 14 years started a software business in Durban. This very successful business was bought out and since then he has specialised in coaching and mentoring Managing Directors, senior executives, Business owners and entrepreneurs.

As an IIB Accredited coach using the ExecuCoach coaching model Jeremy uses a methodology that employs the best of all worlds; a structured approach with the ability to be flexible (free form) and a sophisticated diagnostic and development science based on the measurement of personal attributes.

Over the last nine years Jeremy built up the largest business support organisation of Mature Business Executives in South Africa providing advice and support to SMME’s.

Jeremy is a lead trainer on the IIB Consulting Business Development Programme. This programme is a proven methodology to train business executives how to provide practical advice that works in a structured and ethical manner.
