At it's simplest level, a shared vision is the answer to the question

'What do we want to create?'

Patrick worked with this person to support them in starting up their own business.

‘Patrick has given me some amazing tools to shape and really consider rounded, best in-class decisions. I wanted to set up my own business and had some good but loose plans. Through his amazing skills and the toolkit he has helped me to look at and shape my plan in a holistic way that considered multiple dimensions, impacts and allowed me to shape my plan to maximise the positive benefits for me, my family, my work-life balance, my customers and the success of my business. His calm and inquisitive nature meant I could be just open, honest and challenge myself more than I would have done on my own’
