Mister Steve Training and Consultancy
What our clients say about us
Sam Travis - South Kirby Academy UK
I have worked with Steve over a period of several years both pre and post academy period. During this time Steve has created bespoke packages of training to meet the changing needs of our school. The training has included Middle Leadership, Behaviour Management and Dealing with Difficult Conversations. Steve has delivered to staff at all levels and through his clear communication, sustained professional approach and flexible mindset his impact has been immediate and lasting. This was especially evident in our recent Ofsted where we were judged Good for ‘Personal development, behaviour and welfare’ and ‘Leadership’, two of the areas Steve had worked closely with us on. Since working with 2 of my middle leaders, one middle leader is now undertaking NPQH and another embarking on NPQSL. Steve has a strong non-judgmental outlook and is always ready to listen first before giving advice based on national and international experiences across a variety of educational settings.
Mark Butler – Principal: Al Durrah International School UAE
Being appointed as a new Principal was a daunting challenge, however Steve’s mentoring and guidance were superb from the start. His technical expertise accompanied by an exceptional coaching approach were both instrumental in my preparation for an executive role. Having a coach of Steve’s calibre has empowered me to take on this exciting challenge with a calm and confident approach. I have already recommended Steve to many within my network and I will continue to encourage those within education leadership who are seeking to improve their performance to avail of his services.
Tünde Oláh – Principal: Avalon International School, Miskolc, Hungary
Over the past 12 months, Steve has provided the best professional help and guidance; coaching me as an international school leader to be able to develop our school from scratch to an Internationally accredited school. He is always there for me and the school with his advice, challenge, and support. I can’t wait to receive his wise mentoring in the year ahead.

Steve clearly has a wealth of educational leadership experience and has an ability to shift conversation from a strategist one to that of emotional intelligence as needed. I have found Steve very adaptable, tailoring sessions to my specific needs, therefore fostering a transformative coaching relationship.
