You can find more about Angus, by taking a look at Angus Lyon’s LinkedIn profile, or taking a look at Angus Lyon’s profile page on our website.
I only work one-to-one with a limited number of people.  Essentially I work with nice people.  Business owners who have principles and want to make money.
I’m willing to meet you for a FREE, no obligation business coaching session.  Essentially we have to get on with each other to work effectively together, so a 60 – 90 minute (no obligation) session is a great way to find out if we do “click”, and you’ll get a better understanding of how business coaching can move your business forward.  Yes, there’ll be coffee involved, but this is not a “cosy chat”, I guarantee that by the end of the session you will have a clear idea of what you need to do next to achieve your goals and we will both see whether or not it makes sense for us to work together.  So, take the first free step in developing your business: give the office a call (0207 193 4996), and let them know you’d like to arrange a one-to-one, and I’ll give you a call and get the ball rolling to find out more about your business, so that when we do meet I can add value.

Business coaching for results

You’ll love the fact that I guarantee you will get results!
If you’re currently looking for a business coach make sure you ask the question “Do you guarantee I will get a return on my investment?”  If your coach doesn’t guarantee they can get you results, they’re probably not practising what they preach, make sure that when you call us, you ask us to show you how we pay for ourselves and explain the conditions of our guarantee.
Call us now on 0207 193 4996 to arrange your complimentary one to one session.

What is a business coach?

A business coach is just like a sporting coach. A sporting coach pushes an athlete to achieve optimum performance, provides support when they are exhausted and teaches the athlete to execute plays that their competition does not anticipate.

A sporting coach will make you run more laps than you feel like. A sporting coach will tell it like it is. And a sporting coach will listen.

The role of the business coach is to coach business owners to improve their business through guidance, support and encouragement. They help the owners of small and medium sized businesses with their sales, marketing, management, team building and so much more. Just like a sporting coach, your business coach will make you focus on the game.
As your coach, I will be working with you in five key areas. The emphasis on each area depends on your needs, the type of business you have, and your goals. The key areas are:
1. Sales and Marketing – I can help you and your team to improve top line revenue through more effective marketing, and improving you and your team’s sales techniques.   Whether you are selling face to face, using the telephone for inbound or outbound telesales and telemarketing you will see great results

2. Team building and Leadership – Find out how your business can attract, motivate and retain the staff you deserve as you become a strong business leader. Exceptional businesses are full of ordinary people doing great things

3. Goals and Planning – Learn to focus you and your team’s energy and direction.   Together, we can turn an ordinary business into exceptional businesses – that’s one of high value and provides a large passive income, or is ready for sale.  

4. Financial Mastery – I can show you how simple it is to understand and increase profit and loss, balance sheet and cashflow as well as your key performance indicators. Be in better control of your business, be confident in what is going on in your business and understand what needs to be done to in order to achieve the financial returns you want.  

5 Mindset and Discipline – You can do all the nuts and bolts of business, but if you want accelerated success it is important to get your mind in the right place.

What qualifies me to be your coach?

I joined ActionCoach having wide ranging corporate experience including being a founding member of the prestigious Platinum Club – the Microsoft Global Achievement award.   I have built a number of international businesses for American and European multinationals in the US and Eastern Europe as well as founding and running two of my own businesses. 
Major achievements included helping EDS win one of their largest outsourced IT infrastructure contracts worth over $1 billion.  As a Cloud Architect I wrote the strategic cloud roadmap for a large public sector organisation based on their current and expected needs. I’m security cleared to work with government related projects. 
I have formal degrees in Business Studies and a Master’s Degree in International Management. I’m certified in the Cranfield Benefits Management approach for business, and I’m a Cognitive Edge practitioner for dealing with complexity in organisations. I love learning and putting learning into practice – and I’ve had more than eleven years of successful employment at Microsoft. Representing Microsoft, I ran a range of workshops with CIO’s, IT and Business managers, typically dealing with highly complex situations, and seemly intractable problems. I have also spoken at a number of national and international conferences including the Business Startup Show and Sunday Times Enterprise Network
Although I’m based in Ash, Surrey, I work with clients all across Surrey for example Guildford, Farnham, Camberley, Woking, Caterham, Reigate, Crawley and Godalming.  I also work with clients to the east of Hampshire, including Aldershot & Hampshire, as well as in the Wimbledon and Putney Bridge areas of London.   
I have built, led and turned around sales teams around the world working with both native and non-native English speakers.  
These experiences have provided me with an exceptionally strong knowledge base in the key areas of sales, marketing, advertising, customer relationship management, team building & business development. This is knowledge & experience that I’m able to draw on for my current clients.  
I’m certified in a number of business profiling tools.  Each tool works in a slightly different way, and has a different purpose.  I’ll happilly talk through the outcome you want to achieve in your business, and then we can decide which (if any) of the tools are right for you.  
For improving communications within your business, I’m a certified DISC practitioner.   
For business owners wanting insight into where they find their flow, for those business owners who want to stop doing the things that leave them demotivated, agitated and feeling like they’re not making progress, the the Wealth Dynamics profiling tool, could be just the thing you need.

Seminars

Typically I run seminars in one of the following locations: Farnham, Farnborough, Guildford, Woking, Camberley and Godalming. Call me to find the location of the next seminar.
Recognising Surrey is a large county, if the above locations are not convenient, with sufficient demand I will also run events across the whole of Surrey: from the North of our county (Staines and East Molesey), taking a southern tour via Haslemere, and reaching through the heart of Dorking, Reigate, Redhill and beyond – call me to discuss your requirements. 
I have significant speaking experience, and can be booked to speak at your business event. A recent attendee at one of my events had this to say..
“…(Angus) has opened my mind to a lot I realise there is a lot of opportunities for business and expanding what we currently do.”   Dimple Dattani, HQ Caff, Woking


Remember, the ActionCOACH definition of a successful business is: a commercial, profitable enterprise that works without you. As your Business Coach, I will function as an unreasonable friend who tells it like it is and keeps you working on the path toward your dreams.
