After following Steve Allman on LinkedIn for a year or so and enjoying his relevant and funny posts, I decided to bite the bullet and book in a coaching session before starting a new job role - my second charity leadership job.

I wanted to start as I mean to go on, and talk through some areas I didn't feel as confident about. From the start of our session, I felt comfortable and able to be open/honest. I'd informed him in advance of my accessibility needs as a deaf person which he had prepared for and checked that everything was ok (lighting/picture/ sound quality etc).

I felt listened to and understood throughout. Steve's questions were insightful, and were a real eye opener as to some of my thought patterns. He provided useful analogies, tips and strategies and positive feedback which left me feeling much more confident and ready to get started in my new role.

He has the knowledge, experience and insight to understand and comment on the unique features, challenges and benefits of working in the charity sector.

As I'm self-funding sessions, committing to a package wouldn't have been right for me so it was great to be able to book a one-off session - although it won't be my last!

Steve Allman lives charity, breathes charity, and eats... well, biscuits. He's a brilliant consultant, wildly passionate about social good and brings a depth of hands-on experience to the conversation.

We held a Nonprofit Power Hour session with Steve to reflect on our charity's journey through survival, stability, and explore our approach on what comes next which will be pivotal to furthering our reach and impact of our work.

Steve instantly developed trust and understanding, his calm and comforting approach effortlessly put us at ease. Steve's thought-provoking questions and well positioned pauses challenged and validated in equal measure.

Closing off with a collection of insights, Steve tied off the hour leaving a positive impact and contributions that will shape our work for years to come.

Very motivating coaching session, insightful and extremely helpful, thoroughly recommend Steve Allman. Felt revitalised after the session, with a clearer perspective on everything. Whatever your role get in touch, you won't regret it.
