Executive Coaches

Executive Coaches



Simon has worked at Lord’s cricket ground for the past 30 years, firstly as a physiotherapist, then as head of player health, wellbeing and sports science and currently he leads on organisational development across the club.

Alongside his work in sport, he delivers coaching and training to organisations that are serious about their people. He is a faculty member for The National Leadership Centre and has won awards for his work in supporting the NHS workforce. He is an Amazon Top 10 best-selling author and, if the truth be known, he is often described as a bit of a nuisance.

With clients, from public and private sectors, based in locations around the world his message is consistent and clear – if organisations want to progress in a world of flux the leaders of today need to look after themselves, their teams, and their communities.

To facilitate progress Simon uses an approach that he refers to as MAIN frame (Measurement and Analysis to understand, Inspiration to ignite and Nurture to enable sustained success). This combination of data, talking and coaching addresses the Key Human Performance Indicators that are essential in delivering personal energy, focused teams, and resilient organisations.

In addition to working with individuals Simon spends much of his working week delivering keynote talks and, especially post-covid, coaching teams that need the opportunity to ‘Reflect, Realign and Reset’, and reduce organisational anxiety before embarking on the next leg of the corporate journey. Away from work, he still attempts to play cricket (badly), run (moderately successfully) and cook (occasionally triumphantly).

And as for the tag of being a nuisance whilst he sometimes does get under peoples’ skin, more than anything his ideal day is helping you understand yourself better and allow you to get under yours!

Major General Ewen Murchison MBE, DSO developed his coaching philosophy throughout a distinguished military career with the Royal Marines spanning 30 years. He has a track record of delivering results in complex, diverse environments for a variety of UK and multilateral organisations. Most recently Ewen held a NATO appointment as lead advisor to the Minister of the Interior in Kabul Afghanistan responsible for the allocation and utilisation of a $1.2bn budget.

Major General Murchison was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2006 and in 2011 a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order (DSO). He is a Chartered Manager and holds a Master’s Degree in Defence and Security Studies from Cranfield University and most recently completed a 6-month residential fellowship at Oxford University studying the impact of organisational design and institutional culture on innovation and transformation.

Between 2017 – 2020 Ewen was a key member of The Ministry of Defence Think Tank, informing defence strategy, capability development, operations and provides the foundation for joint education. Ewen was Head of Futures and Strategic Analysis offering strategic foresight in support of strategy formulation and capability development turning good quality thinking into practical action.

Ewen has extensive professional experience in command, leadership, management, strategy, and operations. He uses transformational coaching techniques to help clients grow, develop and re-write their reality; blending authentic support and candid feedback to help unlock potential. His philosophy is underpinned by a bias for action – a leadership instinct that rejects inaction.

Quote. “It’s about seizing the initiative and fixing problems when you see them; it’s about a willingness to act boldly and take calculated risks; it’s about taking small steps along a critical path, rather than trying to achieve the end goal all in one go. It recognises that learning is active and iterative – we act, we assess, and we act again.“



Hayley is a leadership trainer, executive coach, sleep expert and functional medicine practitioner. She works with leaders and high-performance teams across the globe to help them build resilience, manage stress, and maintain optimum states of mental health through times of challenge and change.

Hayley is the only C-Suite level coach to combine neuroscience-based coaching methodology with biofeedback, functional testing, nutrition, and sleep medicine. Known for her ‘no fluff’, evidence-based approach she is skilled in integrating functional medicine with coaching techniques to help people effectively ‘state shift’ and improve their stress handling and ability to access the brain states required to identify and act on meaningful opportunities.

Hayley’s functional medicine background is also particularly useful in the support of high performing men concerned about andropause, and women who need guidance on managing the menopause at work. Women over 50 are the fastest growing group in the workforce. As they transition through menopause nearly two thirds report difficulties concentrating and more than half experience increased levels of stress and a loss of patience with clients and colleagues. Hayley’s ability to provide them with both physical and psychological support has proven transformational for many.

Her roles as a global leadership trainer and coach, and consultant to the leading London sleep centre allow her to stay at the forefront of the latest developments in her sector.

Hayley’s clients include global management consultancies, financial, health and security services, and tech industry firms. She specialises in sectors that face unusual levels of stress, or change.

Hayley has also appeared on TV, guiding Channel 5’s Stefan Gates through a series of experiments to determine the effect of food on sleep
