Since joining a few months ago,
I have found Antony to be both extremely informative but also very interesting and he has really made me think about how I approach sales,
leading to some great results.

Working with the Ex Military Mentor was nothing short of transformative for my business. His one-to-one coaching sessions provided me with actionable strategies that helped me tackle the challenges I was facing head-on. I especially appreciated his approach to leadership, which is clearly honed from years of diverse experience. He's not just another coach; he's a mentor in the truest sense.

I've attended numerous workshops over the years, but the Ex Military Mentor's stood out by a mile. The exercises were hands-on, the lessons learned were immediately applicable, and the atmosphere was one of genuine teamwork. It's clear he knows what it takes to succeed in both the battlefield and the boardroom. His insights into resilience and teamwork have significantly improved my sales team's performance.
