Richard Gray, Consultant Coach at Canoe. I’m a Mindshop accredited Business Growth Facilitator and mBIT Coach who helps businesses grow profitably and sustainably. As a business owner, I know growing your business can be a challenge, but it’s made easier when you’re supported by a capable business coach. I believe all business owners should have access to business coaching, and practising what I preach, I have one myself. Prior to my business growth coaching work, I’ve run businesses in many diverse industries including Transport and Logistics, Recruitment and Technology. I have also managed business growth programs in Gloucestershire and the South West, involving the support, development and growth of hundreds of ambitious businesses.
