About Marc Ford MBA
Why listen to me?
I’m Marc Ford, transformational business coach, motivational speaker, published author, business blogger and podcaster, based in the East Midlands. I am genuinely passionate about helping businesses from start-ups to big national companies grow and reach their potential. I'm fortunate enough to be able to talk on these subjects regularly on TV and Radio. (BBC, Channel 4, BBC National and Local radio)
From an early age, I saw the devastation that can ruin a family when a business fails. My mother worked three jobs after my fathers business failed, just to pay the rent and keep the lights on. After working in senior positions and owning my own successful business, I broke down after working myself into the floor for many years. Success is relative if you can't enjoy the fruits of your labours.
The reason I'm called the 'Best Kept Secret’ is that unlike some coaches who not only push their clients, too hard, too fast, I view my role as the equivalent of a silent director within the business. I help businesses and the people in them, understand how one can’t survive without the other. It’s as important to have clarity and focus on the owner's direction in life and well-being as well as a business's focus, direction and health. I work in a no-nonsense, no bullshit way. I work with the client and their business on things that matter to them, not specified to any particular model or ideal. One size doesn’t fit all and I’ll work with you to find a solution that suits you, not me. It's all about YOU and your business, NOT ME and my ego.
From business turnarounds to start-ups. From growing businesses to flatlined or failing, I'll work with the key people in the business to aim for a success in a grounded, realistic and meaningful way.
