John Holden

Leadership Coach and founder at Futureproof Mentoring

John works as an executive coach with business owners and senior executives, helping them to raise their game and to perhaps face their demons, to get traction in the direction they truly want to travel. Equally, if everything’s going ‘fine’, John challenges his clients to stretch themselves, asking incisive questions to explore what is truly possible, rather than just nicely comfortable. ​ John is a former international chief executive with a track record of growing wholly-owned and joint-venture businesses, running enterprises with turnover of £200m+ and more than 1,000 staff. He’s also worked as a management trainer, delivering sessions all over the world. As a Chief Executive, he’s worked and lived in four different countries, which has been as beneficial as it’s been enjoyable, to understand how business is done within different cultures. ​ As a group facilitator, John brings this mix of international business leadership, formal business training, professional coaching and a psychometric toolkit to the table. He relishes helping businesses build strategy and teams that focus on execution. ​ John is a Professional Certified Coach, accredited by the International Coaching Federation, and a Master Neurolinguistic Programming Practitioner.

Nicky Dewdney

Associate Coach

Nicky is an intuitive and mindful coach. She creates a safe and empathic space to listen and explore with her clients. In listening to language and beliefs, she partners with clients, bringing awareness and assisting them to empower themselves to discover what they need to reach their goals.

By creating new ones and enabling stronger beliefs within, a client can action towards a better future, and thus ultimately create a better now.
