Online business coach | Zoom & Google meet

UK business coaching via online meetings

I use Zoom and Google Meet to provide coaching for businesses in the UK. I can help you succeed with your business and life, but without using up all of your time on expensive face-to-face meetings.

Take the convenient online route to business coaching.

What's my background?

I’ve been a successful entrepreneur who has built an online business in marketing that made over £15 million in sales and is still growing today. However, I didn’t have the opportunity to benefit from a business coach to show me the way forward to achieve growth.

Today, times are even harder for businesses. With saturated markets and so many new companies to contend with, so make the most of your time with online business coaching and let’s remove the blockers from your growth with the minimum fuss.

The power of the internet has catapulted us into a world where we can work virtually from anywhere. Online coaching provides entrepreneurs, small business owners and mature business owners with an opportunity to access professional business coaches who have extensive knowledge to help with your strategy and clarity.

You can work from anywhere with just an internet connection. The virtual coach provides skills that are relevant for your business and you can interact with the coach via video, audio and content sharing within a private and safe app.

Why is online coaching important for your business?

Business coaching is an essential component of any growth strategy. Coaching helps entrepreneurs, small business owners and mature business owners become more confident in their ability to identify opportunities, set goals and understand their strengths, weaknesses and how they face threats or opportunities in their company.

The most important factor about working with a business coach online is having the right one who can provide you with value and results for your investment.

Online coaches will help a business owner with:

  • Writing your business plan
  • Business growth strategies
  • Networking and prospecting
  • Marketing plan and strategy
  • Executive coaching
  • Time management skills

.. and, most importantly, help you with personal development so that you can achieve the success you desire. This includes dealing with procrastination, confidence and other traits which get in way of your success.

This style of business coaching is particularly popular with the various types of online business – such as online course, lead generation, social media and other marketing entrepreneur style online businesses – but many traditional businesses are choosing this style of coaching process too.

Convenient online meetings

I work online with Zoom or Google Meet. This allows coaching to take the least time away from your busy day.

Succeed inbetween sessions

I set regular online coaching exercises to complete in order to ensure progress is steady and continuous. 

Regular check-in

All customers check in regularly using a private online chat app, so we can evaluate what’s happening.

You have a busy work day, and the time and expense of hours more face-to-face meetings isn’t what you need.

The time taken by an online business coaching session may suit.

How we work together

I work closely with my fantastic clients to create belief and purpose, in an effective was as an online business coach

1. Where are you right now?

To start, I ask you to fill out a detailed onboarding form, so we both understand where you are right now. This will help us see where you are experiencing challenges.

2. What do you need?

The next question for our online coaching session, then, is … how can I help to empower you to live the life, and have the business growth, that you want? We’ll look at what training and guidance will help you achieve your goals.

What will we work on?

My approach as an online business coach is to look at the whole business and person in our Zoom / Google Meet sessions, and then set exercises using a private app to keep you accountable. We’ll work on life coaching too, but within business we’ll typically look at some of these in your online business coaching program:

Phil quickly honed in on the reasons that my online events business wasn’t achieving the success that I know it’s capable of. We worked together to clarify my vision and improve the areas which we discovered were causing difficulty.

I now have a clear path forwards and a sense of hope that was missing before.

Online coaching options

There are three types of online coaching methods.

1. Virtual coaching with Zoom or Google Meet

Online coaching provides you with a dedicated coach who is available during business hours. The online platform allows for you to record your sessions and review them at your leisure as well. I go one step further and use an automatic transcription app to convert the session into text.

With a virtual coach, you have an opportunity to connect with a coach face-to-face, but in the comfort and safety of your own home or office. Business coaches can work with you via this medium including topics such as strategy and goal setting.

2. Email contact with the coach

The coach can be a virtual coach using just email to discuss strategies for your business. Your coach will send you advice and updates on the business such as what is working and what needs to be changed in order to make it better.

I don’t offer this option since I don’t find it particularly effective for either side.

3. Private coaching app

A method that is growing in popularity is working with an online coach via an app.

There are many different apps that are designed to help you work with coaches. The main benefit of this type of coaching is that it can be done from anywhere in the world at any time and you can work around your own schedule and not the time constraints of a local business coach office or service.

I use an online coaching app and find it a particularly effective solution for keeping in touch and setting exercises, and for accountability.

How is online coaching different?

If you’re used to more traditional coaching, you may wonder what’s different? Well, you’ll be pleased to hear my coaching philosophy remains unchanged; the coaching process and my values are exactly the same. Effective coaching is about listening and analysing; these are equally possible online. Your successful business will benefit equally from business coaching online.
