Gary Cole

Managing Director

Gary is a first class executive business coach and a master at helping clients to realise their ambitions. He brings exceptional media practitioner insight to the personal development arena.

For Gary, coaching is all about supporting people to pursue bigger goals with greater confidence – a leadership style he’s put into practice in his previous roles.

As head of online sales for, he played a key part in transforming the daily’s sales culture from a newspaper team to the UK’s first multi-media operation. He later joined as online sales director, where he launched the channel’s rival to BBC iPlayer and remodelled the trading culture to include video advertising. He was commercial director behind the launch of O2 Media, the UK’s leader in mobile advertising (now Weve) – a growth market undergoing constant change.

His coaching style is catalytic & action focussed; yet highly intuitive. Gary is also a qualified Team Coach, certified in Tilt365 & a specialist in collaboration.
