Kim Gregory / An iron fist in a kid glove


Hello, I’m Kim Gregory and I’m a strengths consultant, trainer and speaker; and a very experienced executive coach. After nearly 20 years in corporate life (Marks & Spencer, American Express and DHL), finishing as an HRD in December 1995. I did my MBA full-time in 1996 and started my own business in 1997.

I am very passionate about the impact that adopting the Strengths Approach  has on individuals, teams and organisations; and love sharing this approach through coaching, presenting, training and consulting.


As well as having an MBA, I have completed a lot of personal development qualifications, including:

  • I am a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (FCIPD) via examinations
  • I’m an enthusiastic Accredited Trainer for the Strengthscope and StrengthscopeTeam tools
  • I’m also an accredited practitioner for the Strengthscope / Strengthscope Team (Train the Trainer level), Myers Briggs; FIRO-B, EQi; the Realise2


I have been described (many times) as “an iron fist in a kid glove” but also empathic, trustworthy, honest and a fantastic listener. If you want to read more take a look what my clients say. My energising strengths are relationship building, collaboration and self-improvement.

I’m also the Co-Founder and Chair of the amazing Guildford Coaches Group.
