1 to 1 support

Call off – We support you based on what you need!

Perhaps as a critical friend, mentor, coach … but perhaps most often … friendly but challenging practical on call support (based on real experience and a wealth of networks).

It seems a shame to learn loads of good stuff and not pass it on! Surely all our knowledge, experience and networks can help others make a difference for nature. Mentoring and coaching others has always formed a part of what Steve has done, from taking on and mentoring recent graduates to helping others develop their business.

On many occasions Steve has also played interim CEO and development roles for organisations, or been that friendly adviser, challenger, reflective practitioner or practical ideas contributer to individuals or project teams. Steve is that someone from outside the organisation with practical experience who can draw, through his own experience and network, on contributions from many other sectors, or from a different line of thought or enquiry. Someone you can bounce ideas with in a safe and supportive environment and get real practical responses. In short, someone on call at the end of the phone when you need them!

Based on this and following a number of requests over the last few years, Steve has decided to make this a core part of his work. Now much of his time is focused on supporting others develop their skills and impacts.

Based on demand, Steve’s mentor / support roles work in three main areas:

  • Call off advice to managers, project leads and others giving a knowledgeable sounding board outside of the organisation.
  • Practical business mentoring and advice to business leads developing nature positive businesses
  • Direct advice and training in key subjects areas. Primarily: participation and co-production; practical engagement technique and approaches; startegic engagement design for nature; developing nature positive business; strategic cross-sectoral nature positive interventions.

If you are not sure, then please do get in touch. Steve will only get involved if he really thinks he can help you. If not, he may well know others in his very extensive networks who can help and on whom you can draw, either with help form Nearly Wild or independently.

Why Steve?

  • Establishing and running a number of successful nature positive businesses (see about us for more recent examples)

  • This draws on his practical experience from around the world, supporting numersou projects and organsiaions, including.
  • Advising and supporting numerous projects and contracts
  • Delivering literally hundreds of training courses, lecturing at Universities from Oxford to Stellenbosch, and developing practical training programmes for others.
