Derek Benton


My purpose in coaching springs from my innate curiosity in people, and a desire to assist individuals through positive motivation to take their aspirational thoughts into action.

I have enjoyed a 30 year career with businesses serving the legal service markets, both in the UK and overseas. As an experienced sales and marketing professional and former corporate executive, I have deep operational expertise in managing people, strategic planning, and implementing business plans in a commercial environment.

My focus in coaching is to support individuals in building a pragmatic approach to their personal development and enrichment of their working life. Fundamental to my approach is to help my clients “think about thinking” as a gateway to more effective self-management.

I have trained under the Results Coaching System™, from the NeuroLeadership Institute, taking in the the latest developments from neuroscience in understanding thinking, and apply this in practice by helping self-directed change through positive encouragement to find solutions to the achievement of your goals.
