Savour Success

Richard Coombes started Coombes Business Coaching after 20 years working in the senior management of professional services and financial institutions. His career had spanned sales, facilities management, education and human resource management roles across a wide geography.

“I had learned that the most powerful, sustainable performance occurs when a deep awareness and tuning of the whole person connects with the task at hand. My career had included significant moments in which this connection happened for me and I wanted more.

Coaching I received and my coaching of others led me to understand that there were capacities and drives within me that I was not recognizing or using. I then began to build the concept for the business I now run. Coombes Business Coaching uses my corporate and life experience and harnesses my fascination for the magic which occurs when human insight, connection and motivation coincide. These are the things which get me out of bed early each day and are driving the growth of the business.”
