I’m Duncan I help ambitious, driven business owners achieve more profits and
ultimately the success they deserve.

As a Senior Partner with ActionCOACH Global Firm I utilise their proven
methodology, developed over three decades, combined with my no-nonsense
approach to deliver fast results for business owners.

My leadership skills and coaching style mostly comes from the 24 years I spent in
the South African Air Force. I was also heavily influenced by meeting (and flying)
Nelson Mandela on many occasions. I got to know him well and learnt lessons
about humility, compassion and also ambition that I continue to employ in my life
and work to this day.
