Imagine the value to you, your team, your organisation of a safe, confidential space , in which to meet challenges, find solutions and create outstanding results. What would that investment be worth to you, your team, your organisation?

Our Story

In 2009 David Rigby and Isla Baliszewska met at a coaching development meeting where a fine discussion happened about the merits of consultancy, life, business and leadership coaching. A little seedling was planted which blossomed into the Swindon Coaching Team, a group of great coaches, mentors and consultants with the remit of sharing knowledge, expertise and spreading the word about the benefits of coaching in business. Swindon Coaching Team became Smart Coaching & Training in 2013 with the goal of providing honest, professional, impactful business support to enable people and organisations to grow, also transform. Our current team bring a wealth of fabulous experience and a breath-taking amount of collective business support delivery hours to help our clients achieve their goals and more.

David and Isla are very different and recognise that difference makes for great teams. Smart Coaching & Training honours those preferences and uses the language of colours (from our Behavioural Preference Profiling tool - C-me) to harness synergy and balance. Those different perspectives create the powerful connections that foster success – the grit in the oyster that makes the pearl.

Critically, we remind ourselves that we are people dealing with other people, providing a safe and ethical space in which to learn, flourish and get smarter results.
