I have known Guy for the last 5 years and he is without a doubt one of the most inspiring people I have had the pleasure of working with. He has great insight, determination and passion, coupled with a truly engaging and caring personality. Guy brings a huge amount of energy, enthusiasm and creativity to any activity he undertakes. An excellent coach and mentor, who is very skilled at developing, motivating and empowering others to unlock their potential. I would have no reservations about recommending his services.
Simon from Birmingham - March 2017
I appreciate my experience working for Guy for a total of 4 years as a Team Leader in a medium sized manufacturing company. The firm was in desperate need of restructuring before Guy took on the role as General Manager of the plant. An instant positive impact was created by encouraging a workable atmosphere, resulting in increased productivity and a more efficient, functioning unit by changing the mind set of our team in an effective manner. Our team was inspired by Guy’s belief in our ability to work together, followed by the implementation of a calm and structured approach to challenges. I personally learned more in my 4 years working with Guy than in my total of 35 years working in the manufacturing sector. Most importantly I gained vital skills such as encouraging employees through methods of coaching and supporting them in meeting their targets and goals in a demanding environment by working with Guy.
Ben Pielow, Managing Director at The Recruitment Manager - April 2017
I have had the pleasure of not only working with Guy and his previous companies as a supplier, but also, he has acted as my business coach since my newly formed business has started. I never really appreciated the benefit that monthly sessions can bring especially with how busy we can be and Guy has been fantastic at delivering that. His style is personable and fresh and you come away feeling you’ve gained something each time - I would highly recommend Guy Ratcliffe
Garry Evans from Telford - May 2017
Having worked with Guy on a number of assignments, I have experienced first hand the inspirational spirt that this gentleman has in providing leadership and guidance to all who come into contact with him. Guy creates a working environment that leads the team to become fully active and autonomous in all the business elements and his supportive style fully engages the imagination of the individual or team, providing the confidence to complete the most challenging tasks. Always on hand to lead or become part of the team, Guy is truly a team player never looking to be the one in the limelight but always promoting the successes of others: works tirelessly to monitor and check how tasks are progressing with a unique Coaching style that allows the individual to explore and discover the solutions on their own merits. A true leader within the manufacturing world and a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with him over the past 5 years.

Having been in this game for 40 years, there have only been a handful of people who have totally impressed me with their ability to truly get the best out of people, Guy is one of them.
Ian McFarlane from Coventry - June 2017
Guy saw something in me and gave me the confidence and opportunity to step up, which completely altered my career path.
Kevin Smith from Worcestershire - September 2017
Having had the pleasure of working with Guy I would have no hesitation on recommending his service to anyone who needs to deliver sustainable change. His blue chip industrial experience, coupled with his undoubtable coaching and development skills will mean you will add value immediately to any business.
Judith Stewart from Scotland - September 2017
Having worked with Guy in a challenging environment, I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to to companies, groups or individuals that need or wish to "Re-Create & Champion Lasting Change".
Andy Goodyer from Derbyshire - October 2017
Having worked closely with Guy we share a passion for managing people ethically and morally. Coaching and mentoring is a key part of man management that is sadly missing from many industries. I would recommend Guy to any business wishing to engage with this experienced expert.
Andy Kearns from Coventry - October 2017
Particularly impressive is the way Guy combines his people and coaching skills with the years of experienced gained in operational/manufacturing environments.
Kenny from Belfast - February 2018
I was fortunate to cross paths with Guy on a previous venture in Wales. Guy is a fantastic individual with a very open and calm exterior. Guy has a great personality that really helps to engage all varieties of individuals. I thoroughly enjoyed the coaching and mentoring that I received from Guy and also the support that he gave my team. The best attribute that I can align to Guy is his drive and resolution to always ask, “Why?” The question that a great deal of us fail to really ask at times, instead we end up just putting a sticking plaster on an issue. Guy really invokes teams and individuals to keep pushing the limits of the, “Why” until the issue is resolved. Leaving the only question being, “Why did we not ask this in the first place !
Neal Kirkwood from Chesterfield - June 2019
I have worked with Guy for the past eight months. Guy has been the calming influence in a very high pressure and busy working environment. Through coaching, he has guided the team to become more empowered. Guy was also my mentor, supporting me through college and once again his expertise and experience was a great help to me personally.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Guy’s services, you will not be disappointed.
Andy Slaney from Staffordshire - July 2019
Having worked with guy when he was a General Manager for an Aerospace business, I can attest to his drive to create a people focussed culture that works together to achieve great results. Getting the best out of each individual to help create a better team, his eternal positivity and his passion for seeing those he works with succeed is a very rare trait in the manufacturing industry.
Ryan Millar from Northern Ireland - June 2022
I was fortunate enough to cross paths with Guy whilst he was working with our senior leadership team in my current company.
At the time I was going through a frustrating period in my career.
Through our coaching and mentoring sessions Guy helped me rationalise some big decisions, take major steps in terms of development and mindset and encouraged me to do things outside my comfort zone. He did so using an array of tools and activities but also giving me space and time to come to my own realisations.
Guy is a very open, honest and fun character who really cares about the people he works with. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him and I will continue to recommend his services to any individual or business looking to unlock their full potential.
