About My Programme

Who Am I?

Talk Yourself Up Coaching Academy

Of course you can work things out for yourself. But if you can’t, then reach out for help from a friendly experienced coach. I’ve taught, trained and coached hundreds of people over the years in London, the UK and the Middle East. I founded the Talk Yourself Up Coaching Academy specifically to help men and women who are frustrated in their middle and later years. 

If you’re feeling a bit anxious about the future, that’s totally normal. If you’re a Generation X, over 45, over 50, then it’s completely understandable you might be feeling a bit squeezed and a bit anxious. Through our working lives we’ve had to deal with all sorts of trends that are bigger than we are, but that might have had a massive impact on our careers and our lives. Have you been hit by

Offshoring? Technology? Ageism? Centralisation? Loss of Confidence?

Instead of getting anxious and worried, what if you could turn all this around to your own advantage? What if you could take a good hard look at yourself, your talent, your skills and your lifetime of experience, and start to talk yourself up to win success in your life and career, starting right now? Well there is a way. I’ve developed the Talk Yourself Up Coaching Academy to help you, using best practice and with decades of experience in the real world.

My coaching is aimed at experienced people who want to transform their performance and knowledge so they can excel in their later lives and extend their earning potential as long as they wish.

The Talk Yourself Up Coaching Academy runs the Talk Yourself Up Power Method… a powerful programme that consists of 10 life-changing courses. You can take these separately or together – all with my full support and help – to create an experience that will transform your life and career.

    Paul Andrews
    CEO, JIK Software Ltd

Although there was a practical and useful element to his talk, it was the nuggets about Mark’s experiences that I have really taken away. I certainly recommend taking the opportunity to attend one of Mark’s presentations, if you can.”
