I am a technology business coach and CEO mentor
focusing on the science of leadership and team success

As a former MD of two successful scale-ups
I've witnessed first-hand the transformative power of strong systems

At Monkhouse & Company, we have a driving mission over the next 10 years to help 200 tech firms to scale to 250+ employees. This will allow these firms to create 300,000 jobs and £52 billion in turnover – (2014 Scale Up Report by Sherry Coutu).

We empower B2B tech leaders at growth-stage startups and scale-up SMBs to conquer their toughest challenges: bold vision, mastering “soft skills,” team dynamics, board navigation, team member engagement, talent mastery, and personal CEO effectiveness.

You can learn more about my background and experience or watch the video below, where I walk you through one of the tools we use with clients to help them build a high-performing team.



This website, my podcast and my weekly insights all focus on translating the science of business performance into something actionable, digestible and accessible to anyone.

It is important to me to make this content available to everyone without taking paid advertising. To do this, our work here is paid for by our CEO mentoring and coaching business.

What started out as a small weekly email curating articles I had read and found interesting, eventually reached beyond friends and former colleagues to include total strangers.

Today via email, Medium and LinkedIn my Weekly Insights reach over 11,000 business leaders each week, and more than 12,500 new visitors see our content backlog for the first time each month.

I have written about and interviewed experts on the topics that I find performance- obsessed CEOs see as continuing challenges. Being a successful CEO is more about spinning plates than finding a silver bullet. These plates have included purpose, values, mission, strategy, core customer, positioning, innovation and more. If you wish you can just dive in.

However, if you are interested in a specific topic we have tagged each article, interview, book review and shared content with one or more topic tags.
