Birmingham Business Coach: Do More, Be Happier | Phil Drinkwater

Birmingham Business & Life Coaching

Available online throughout the Midlands

I help business owners, entrepreneurs and executives find the patterns that are holding back your Birmingham business and support you in making new decisions that will help it grow.

Many people think they lack the knowledge or skills to grow a business. In reality, we limit ourselves through habits we don’t even realise we have.

I’m Phil Drinkwater, and I’m one of the leading business and life coaches in the UK. I help business owners and entrepreneurs figure out why they keep going down the same unproductive paths, so they can break out of vicious cycles.

Let’s work together to make your ideal business and life happen.

As Seen In

What Business Coaching isn't...

Business coaching isn't just for larger businesses

60% of the business owners I work with are small businesses that only employ a small number of people, and 20% are startups and entrepreneurs. Only 20% are larger, and of I’m working with executives in these companies.

Business coaching is relaxed and informal

This is a real, honest conversation between two people who want you to succeed, in whatever that means to you. (We'll also laugh!)

Business coaching isn't pushy

I won't be angry if you don't do what you set out to do, but I will be curious about "why," because that will give you important new information that can lead you to new, more successful paths.

Is any of this sounding familiar?

You had big plans for your business and your life, but now you're starting to doubt them

Whether this is your first business or you've had it for a while, you're not sure that you can reach your goals right now.

You're disappointed that your hard work doesn't seem to be paying off, and this makes you less sure of yourself

You're not getting what you want out of this business, and you're not sure why that's happening.

You say you should and need to do things, but you don't do them

You've been looking for advice, maybe on YouTube videos and podcasts, but all you get are more bad ideas that don't work for you.

Despite having a lot of "shoulds" and "need tos," you aren't following through

You've been looking for advice, maybe on YouTube videos and podcasts, but all you get are more bad ideas that don't work for you.

You're beginning to experience confusion, stress, and worry with regards to your future

You're starting to feel confused, stressed out, and worried about your future.

Because you're not happy with what you've done, you're being harder on yourself

You make yourself work harder and harder by being hard on yourself. Still, this makes things worse because you are starting to dislike it all.

You feel isolated with no one to talk to

You feel alone because you haven't really talked to anyone about what's going on at your Birmingham business.

What they say..

“I’m doing really well. Probably the best I’ve been. I have to thank you for the tools you’ve given me to deal with issues.”


Case study:

Business coaching gets to the bottom of the problem and gives a long-term solution

I had a client who was often paid late, and it was causing them a lot of financial trouble

In our first session, a client said, "You try being calm when you don't have enough money in the account to pay the rent and are owed thousands." How, indeed...

After talking about it, they decided to improve their billing system by sending automatic reminders

That seems reasonable, no?

But it didn't work because some clients kept making late payments

Because the same people kept paying late, it was clear that customers forgetting to pay wasn't the problem.

They decided to fire the client, because they were causing him stress just to delay payment, but weren't sure if they could find replacements

So, their advertising and marketing wasn't bringing in enough new customers. How come?

Then we found out what the real problem was: even though marketing wasn't their strong suit, they wouldn't let go due to trust issues

Because of this, a business problem came up that had never been fixed. It caused a lot of stress and slowed progress in many ways.

We then made great progress by learning to depend on others and delegating effectively

By solving their real problem, with the help of new information and self-improvement, they solve their problem in their Birmingham business, as well as gave it huge room to grow.

Want another brief case study?

One of my clients had trouble getting motivated, was a people-pleaser, and couldn't grow her business. She really wanted to travel the world, so instead of growing her business, she kept thinking about this unfulfilled need. We give her the freedom to do what she loved and meet her need to take care of her workers. She got more energy, and in just 8 months, she doubled her head-count.

Why is this happening?

Business owners often blame their problems on not having enough skills or knowledge

Often, what's really stopping you from reaching the level of personal and professional success you want is the patterns you've been living and working with for a long time.

Let's be clear: You have the skills and knowledge to grow or expand your business

You can be successful if you are willing to break out of the business and personal habits that are holding you back.

How does business coaching with me help?

I can see your patterns in the way you act and what you say

You won't be aware of these yet, which is why you keep going down the same paths that don't work for you.

You'll eventually see how to spot your patterns before they happen

As we work together, you'll figure out how you act and react, and so what your real challenges are.

Then you can choose to try out new paths that might be more successful

As we work together, you'll learn how you act and react, which will help you choose new ways to move forward.

What they say..

“The difference from my first session to now is life changing for me. The growth is so wonderful”.


Who am I?​

I'm Phil Drinkwater, a leading transformational business and life coach who supports clients in discovering how to maximise their potential

I'm a Certified Coach with a totally unique approach that will help you understand why you currently act and react how you do, and why that leads to the challenges you're facing with your Birmingham business.

I'll support you in your journey as you move on.

I’ve run my own successful online non-coaching business with up to 20 employees for 22 years

My failures helped me gain a great deal of knowledge about business, as well as about myself, life, and how I can best grow.

I've created a programme which will help you do the same.

I'm also psychology trained

I'm aware that our needs, thoughts and emotions determine whether we succeed or fail, and how we can change these to produce a more success-oriented mindset.

In our coaching sessions we will...

.. discover what you really want, like growing Marketing Agency Owner Bea ..

..and discover how to get there, like Entrepreneur Sara.

How will we begin coaching?

What will happen in our Free Discovery Session?

We'll get to know each other, and gain an understanding of what's happening for you, so I can suggest a useful path for us working together.

If you're nervous - I'm incredibly kind

If so, we'll go at your speed. I'm a very understanding person, so after a short time you'll feel more bold and confident. But if you'd prefer a more gentle start to coaching, that's perfectly OK!

All coaching is done online to keep costs accessible to all

Since lockdown, people are more used to working remotely in different ways. I can coach you from afar just as well as in person.

What they say..

“Before business coaching, I didn’t believe I could have what I really wanted, and I settled for second, third and fourth best. Now I’m moving forward with what I really want.”


How will we continue?

Pricing for one to one coaching services, and discounted packages

Single sessions for business owners and entrepreneurs are £189 - with a 15% discount in your first year of business. Single sessions for executives are £300. Discounted packages are available.

In coaching we'll discuss challenges, resistance and how to design an amazing life and business

We can talk about anything that will help you, but we'll mostly talk about what's hard and why you don't want to go down certain paths. We'll also figure out how you work best and how all of this fits into the life you really want.

We'll meet every 2 to 3 weeks, usually

I suggest we meet every few weeks, depending on schedules. This lets you do things so we can judge how well they work for you.

What they say..

“In just one session, Phil took me from a place of apprehension to one of clarity and confidence. We spent time working out what things I need in order to achieve job satisfaction”.
