Peter Burton

Peter has an entrepreneurial background, a founder of two companies, one in IT and the other in commercial radio broadcasting, both of which he took public. He served as a non-executive director in public and private companies before becoming an independent consultant and executive coach, having obtained postgraduate qualifications in Organisational Behaviour, Coaching and Performance Management, and Coaching Psychology.

Peter helps his clients recruit and retain people (to quote Goffee and Jones of LBS) ‘who create disproportionate amounts of value from the resources that the organisation makes available to them’. He evolved an essential leadership style for this purpose while serving as CEO and Chairman in his two start-up companies, both of which were heavily dependent on creativity and innovation.

Peter has completed the Owner-President Management Program of Harvard Business School, and obtained a certificate in Creative Writing from Birkbeck, University of London. He is a fellow of the RSA.

Steve Mullins

Steve’s original experience was twenty years in management with world-renowned blue-chip companies, which provided a sound footing for his work today; he has been a business advisor since 1988 specialising in SMEs.

His interest is in how the fundamental business processes work together to deliver a sustainable organisation and provide the sound basis needed to inform the improvement process, identifying those few areas that will bring the biggest gain.

In his consultancy, he enjoys working at board level to provide a consistency of purpose and an agreed goal for the organisation that will engage and energise senior management in playing to their particular strengths.

Steve has created a number of specific business models which both challenge and support management by delivering a clearer and more committed commercial focus and form the basis for positive leadership.

Steve holds degrees in life sciences and ecology, is a Chartered Marketer and Certified Management Consultant; he has received a number of awards for his support to SMEs.
