Our Vision

We support high potential executives, leaders, teams and individuals get smarter results, be more effective with their people, culture and money.

Our Story

Once upon a time David Rigby and Isla Baliszewska met at a coaching development meeting and had a fine discussion about the merits of consultancy, life, business and leadership coaching. A little seedling was planted which blossomed into a group of great coaches, mentors and consultants with the remit of sharing knowledge, expertise and spreading the word about the benefits of coaching and mentoring in business and in the workplace. Aiming to work and deliver smarter, the group became Smart Coaching & Training with the goal of providing honest, professional, impactful support enabling people and organisations to grow, transform, change and flourish. 

In 2014 David invited Halina Jaroszewska to be our Strategic Consultant. Halina brought an added dimension to the business through her excellence as an executive and leadership coach, and her unique talent for spotting where and how to make things sparkle. 

David, Isla and Halina are very different and recognise that difference makes for great teams. Together they have built a group of dedicated Associates, in the UK and internationally, all with different skills, backgrounds and competencies, all in the service of delivering great results. Smart Coaching & Training honours these differences and preferences using the language of colours (from our Behavioural Preference Profiling tool - C-me) to harness synergy and balance. These different perspectives create the powerful connections that foster success – the grit in the oyster that makes the pearl.

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.

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.

Our Social Responsibility

We're in business to make a difference, to the lives of our customers and our people. With service in mind, we make decisions over and above financial considerations that will impact positively on the wider community and our environment. Life is tough, giving back is easy and our culture is one of recognising that we can do so much better by having strong social value.
