Business Coaching in London

The Network from Uspire delivers leadership growth and self-development opportunities via a network of regional PODs. Each POD is chaired by a highly experienced business leader who is committed to mentoring and guiding their POD members toward success.

Chaired by Richard Beaumont, ex McKinsey and Rolls-Royce,  the London POD brings business coaching in London to a collection of high potential commercial leaders and SME owners who benefit hugely from the 1-2-1 mentoring and peer based learning workshops.

A Confidential and Elite London-based Peer Group

90-minute monthly commercial coaching and mentoring

The one-to-one coaching sessions at the London POD focus on delivering tangible business results. The sessions are objective centric and the outputs are determined with Richard by each member.

Thought-provoking masterclasses

POD members get free entry to the Uspire Paradigm Shifter masterclasses, designed to provoke commercial leaders to think about the wider business landscape.

Peer based learning workshops

We are acutely aware of the value our members place on their time, which is why the focus of the learning workshops is peer originated and always delivers insightful problem solving. Richard chairs the meetings and welcomes guests speakers.

Online learning resources

The Network learning resources provide subject matter expertise across a number of commercial issues, perfectly suited to stimulate new thinking and support research.
