PORTFOLIO ENTREPRENEUR + INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COACH

Welcome to JacobAldridge.com. As an international business advisor since 2006, I provide bespoke strategic solutions to privately-owned companies with 12 - 96 employees.

You have proven your business can work, but can still feel stuck turning ambition into reality. You have a growing team, but ultimately you are still responsible for all 28 areas of your business.

You don't have time or budget for 28 different experts to tell you what to do. You need one person you can trust, to show you how everything is connected and where you will uniquely achieve the best return on your business investment.

That one person is me. Let's chat - it costs nothing to start a relationship.

HOW COACHING WORKS

Pure business coaching is a waste of money.

The Big Break my Career Needed: Stanley Kubrick Died

Let me explain… One of Kubrick’s best films is ‘A Clockwork Orange’, but given the huge backlash it received on its original cinematic release (much sexualised violence – I think in making an important point, but I understand others won’t feel that) he requested that it never be re-released. The distributors / rights holders honoured that…

Why I’m Anti-Daylight Saving Time – With Research Links and a Compromise

I see Daylight Saving is back for its annual recurring discussion. I never liked in living with it (in NSW as a kid, and London as an adult) – I struggle with sleep enough as it is, so anything that disrupts my body clock mucks me about, even though I’d probably notice it less these…

“The value that Jacob added to our business is twofold. He lives the bigger game bringing a strong strategic perspective together with the ability to build process and structure to support the implementation of the strategy. Secondly his energy – he is always happy, always sees the positive and always happy to get his sleeves rolled up and get stuck in. He is a real asset to any business that has a passion to grow and make a difference.”

Juliet Turnbull,

“Jacob’s energy is boundless and his coaching capability immense. He is also a man of many talents. He was instrumental in devising and introducing our new newsletter across the business which has now touched several hundred of my clients and enabled me to connect with new friends. I value Jacob for the positive difference he has made for my business.”

Jim Henderson, Management Consultant,
Harrison James Partnership

“Jacob’s business insights and experiences are world-class. Great facilitator and invaluable as a coach.”

Jenny Vandyke, Principal Consultant, 
Zumbara Consulting

“His motivation and dedication are second to none and his personal and communication skills are really superb. I would recommend Jacob to anyone who wants to have absolute confidence that things – and the right things – will get done; and have a good time doing it.
Our only complaints remain his choice of jokes and ties.”
