Forthcoming One-day Workshops
Influence and Persuasion â€“ Winning Advantage in Sales Negotiations
Check out our new website on Influence and PersuasionÂ Workshops presented by Peter Beard and Will James of the Persuasive...
Iâ€™ve been working with Peter Beard as my business coach for around 18 months.Â In that time, we have developed a comprehensive growth plan for the next 5 years with clear targets and actions to deliver results.Â Iâ€™m significantly more confident that my business will succeed.
Peterâ€™s undoubted technical ability combines with his affability and wicked sense of humour that brings a lightness to what can often be hard and â€œdullâ€ work.Â He has a very encouraging coaching style and I am happy to recommend Peter to anyone seeking to develop their business.

The best thing to happen to my business â€“ Peter Beard Consultancy.
The one person who has made the biggest impact in my business life is Peter Beard.
Running your own business can be a lonely place and I needed someone I could trust to discuss in confidence the essential commercial challenges and the business conundrums I face very day.
Peter has shared immense knowledge with me and without him I doubt Iâ€™d still be in business.
I realise now how little I knew about running a business. I wasnâ€™t short on passion but my goal setting abilities were lacking. As were many other essential business management skills (like selling) which Iâ€™ve improved thanks to Peterâ€™s support.
For 2 years, Peter has been my coach and mentor and his support has been invaluable. He is the Number One person I turn to for business advice.
I canâ€™t imagine running my business without him.
A business coach is essential for every business owner and director in a small to medium sized business. Iâ€™ve taken (and still refer to) numerous notes at my meetings with Peter â€“ they are pure gold.
Would I recommend Peter Beard? Without hesitation. Book a meeting with him and see for yourself how far you could take your business with him as your coach.
We meet every month and I appreciate every meeting with Peter.
Not only is he a fantastic coach, he is inspirational and his knowledge spans an amazing spectrum of facts about business, finance, history and life in general.
He is a true gentleman and I come away from every meeting with a huge smile on my face because it has been such fun. As I drive home, I always feel fired up to keep on growing my business.
Massive thanks to you Peter.

'When we first met Peter we were just 2 Directors who owned a Creative Agency in Manchester.
He has helped us structure our business and look at our whole structure with fresh eyes and most importantly to make the most of our time.
He made us aware of what we were missing and how we could go about getting it.
Since we have recruited 3 full time members and an apprentice.
Time management is something that just passes you by in business but as an outsider looking in, Peter has helped us manage that reality.
We want to thank Peter for not only being a great mentor but a lifelong friend who is always welcome for a brew at Tim Marner HQ Â (and we make a good one)'

â€œPeter coached us through our business start-up which was of tremendous help. Peter is enthusiastic, fun and a pleasure to work with. Would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to develop their business further.â€
Adrian Mills, Director, Jamtech Engineering Ltd.
Working with a business coach and mentor is like any other business relationship that you want to work. You have to have a good relationship, a friendly one. To feel your coach is batting on your team, that they believe in you and your potential as much as you do, maybe more!
That's what makes working with Peter Beard a unique and rewarding experience. He's a wise man, a funny man, a gentleman and a vastly experienced man who's been there, done it and sold the T-shirt. I would absolutely recommend engagingÂ with Peter. All successfulÂ people had had guidance and an arm around their shoulder at some point. Have a chat with Peter and you'll see very quickly how he is an expert in his field.
