Your questions answered.

How does your business coaching work?

We start with a Business Development Review. This is an outside view looking into your business, where we examine your marketing activity and performance, processes, systems, time management, mindset and most importantly sales. Further work is done in a coaching format; we set a plan for your goals, decide upon clear measurements and actions. We eradicate your hidden blocks, leaving you free to take simplified action.

What do I need to do for a Business Development Review?

Before we start working together, I send you an on-boarding questionnaire. You need to complete this before we first meet. Other than that, all you need to bring is yourself!

Is sales focused business coaching right for me?

Coaching is absolutely right for you if you are serious about taking action and are willing to move out of your comfort zone. It’s this commitment which means you grow yourself and your business.

How will I benefit from your sales focused business coaching?

I will help you overcome your fears of sales and see how it is closely aligned to customer services. Sales is about focus, process structure and discipline. I’ll work with you in a way that establishes quick revenue wins to justify your investment in me.

Why should I work with Louise Pengilley?

You could go to 10 different coaches and they all should be able to tell you what their expertise is.  What makes me different is that I have more 30 years workable experience across sales, marketing and Business Development.

Many people struggle with the difference between sales and marketing and cannot understand why their marketing is not producing sales enquiries. This is my core focus. I’ll also help you manage your time better, implement processes to avoid duplication, and overcome any fear of sales.

How long do your coaching packages take?

This depends on where you are with your business and what you want to achieve.  However experience tells me that for the best results this means a commitment of at least 6 months coaching.

What is the investment?

My 121 coaching is based on a time related basis and your investment starts at £400 per month.  Your total investment will depend on the size of your company, the time I spend with you each month and the chosen package.

Do you specialise in a particular sector?

I find myself primarily supporting service-based coaches, consultants and small business owners with a focus on marketing, creative industries (such as photography), insurance, finance, and health.

However, the way I work is more focused around the methodology which means it does not matter what industry you are in.  I find that my client’s are in highly competitive industries where they struggle to differentiate themselves.

Can we have our meetings in-person?

Yes of course!  If you’d prefer face to face please do let me know so that we can discuss further. Please note, my charges are based on Zoom meetings which means your fee may be higher if you wish to meet in person.

What about confidentiality?

To utilise the full breadth of my experience, we may review your client list and financial data. In view of this I will happily sign an NDA if you wish me to.
