We help you make connections – internal ones, with your self and your ambitions; and external ones, with the business or world that you wish to explore.  We coach, we teach, we consult/produce projects, and we facilitate conferences and trans-national/sector connections.  Chris’s history is in and around the theatre/event/charity/festival business, but our clients come from many sectors including the arts, wellness/holistic practice, University departments, SMEs, sole-trading in legal/accounting and beyond.

CGO offers creative business life support and we help you make connections. 

We offer a wide range of coaching methods to get your personal and professional life moving in the direction you want, supported by over 30 years of personal experience in marketing and business management for SMEs, charity and the creative industries.
