Our People

At the heart of how we do business is the people who chose to join the Coach House team. As a client, you will be reassured by our rigorous selection and on-boarding which guarantees you people with the very best skills-fit and expertise for your engagements.

Coach House Associates
Every one of our Associates has a high industry standing in their own right. Our success over the past decade or so has been because of the great people who have been attracted to work with us and the environment we create which encourages self-development, interesting and rewarding engagements.

Shhh!Shhh…It’s possibly the world’s best kept secret that Coach House probably has access to the largest number of experienced regulatory learning experts in the UK… It’s not enough for them to solve your business or capability issues our teams think it’s just as important that we leave your teams with the skills to do this for themselves in the future.
