Keith Turnbull

About the founder – Keith Turnbull; After a post University brush with the accountancy sector, Keith quickly found his natural calling to be maximising sales. As National Sales Manager in the transport sector, he learned quickly through practical experience how to coach, mentor and motivate a sales team of 70. Then came Europe wide roles in a totally different field, working with clients that included Governments and the Ministry of Defence. These positions of responsibility involved developing a widely dispersed business team to think creatively and to establish their own procedures and robust systems to meet and exceed standards in the most demanding environments, including business contingency planning for unprecedented events.

Keith has also performed interim trouble shooting and risk consultancy roles; foremost amongst which was a global risk consultancy firm where he was tasked with restoring the productivity of a demotivated sales team. A further key challenge was to re-energise an underperforming senior manager; having provided him with new work and life challenges his career was totally revived and his performance soared.

Keith also writes regular articles on British Armed Forces transition issues for Quest magazine; www.questonline.co.uk  and works on occasions with the Ministry of Defence as an interim contractor.

He has also recently worked in a classified role at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office when not coaching his private corporate clients.

Keith is also NATO, UK Government, US State Department approved and recently named in the World’s Who’s Who publication.


“I have worked with Keith many times and on each and every occasion he has proven professional, driven and enthusiastic towards his audience. He would prove to be a valuable coach and mentor to anyone.”

Ken Hames  Former Major, B Squadron 22 SAS

“Keith was both knowledgeable and highly motivational and left the team and myself more determined and likely to attain a rewarding new career. I would certainly recommend him to others looking to re-energize and drive a career.”
