Chris Oakes - Master At Arms
Final Rank: Captain, Master At Arms (MAA), Royal Army Physical Training Corps (RAPTC)
Courses completed: ACT Master Practitioner Coach, NLP Practitioner Coach, SBO Business Coach, ILM level 7 Diploma in Executive Coaching and Mentoring with Performance People (ELC Provider 3015)
‘I’d been fortunate to receive quality experience and training in fitness and sports, adventurous training and leadership coaching while serving, but I also knew that, to be considered credible in a largely unregulated industry, I’d best seek a professional qualification. To this end, I employed my ELC to attend ACT and NLP practitioner certification courses, alongside the ILM level 7 Diploma in Executive Coaching and Mentoring, with Performance People. Aside from being experts within their field, as ex-Service people themselves they have a true understanding of the military mind-set, a great respect for the military ethos and a real passion for helping military people get the very best from themselves.
‘The courses were outstanding: ACT providing the hard science, NLP the soft skills, and ILM assessment enabling me to put theory into practice and demonstrate my return on investment. I’m now looking to attend an SBO (Small Business Owner) Business Coach course, again with Performance People, to provide me with the additional knowledge and skills not only to “do” the business of coaching, but also to run my own life coaching business better.’
