Drew is highly experienced in working with all levels of leadership and all leadership challenges and delivers coaching sessions in all key modes, including face to face and virtually. Drew’s coaching engagements are one-on-one, group or with teams when coaching C-suite and executives. 


Drew believes that effective and successful coaching engagements must be both pragmatic and strategic and brings a relaxed but challenging approach to his coaching engagements. Drew’s work is based on partnering closely with his counterparts to clearly identify both the current and desired state of their leadership and impact, in order to best design, and then navigate a tailored change course.

Drew’s experience enables him to quickly develop a deep and practical understanding of the challenges and opportunities for both the counterpart and organisation.
