We are one of the most experienced, high growth entrepreneurial coaching businesses in the country, bringing proven business insight and powerful solutions to organisations from start-ups to FTSE 100 companies.
Since our incorporation in 2005, we have served public and private sector clients in many diverse locations – from Glasgow to Cardiff, Preston to Cambridge and London to Frankfurt. We now address a community of over 13,000 fast growing businesses.
For ambitious entrepreneurs and business owners we help them realise their true potential. For local and central Government, we design, deliver and manage often complex and high value public sector supported business growth contracts.

Most importantly Winning Pitch is known for its passion, expert coaching, down to earth advice, fresh thinking and ‘roll our sleeves up’ attitude. We use them all to drive success and deliver results.
We don’t advise from afar but believe in working directly alongside people and organisations, helping them overcome hurdles, seize opportunities and exceed their ambitions.
We provide access to proprietary tools from lean start-up techniques, creating a great team and accessing the optimum growth finance all combined to deliver on that entrepreneurial vision.
Since 2005, we have provided invaluable introductions to trusted partners to help business leaders find their success mind-set and you’ll find our experience in just about every area of business and any kind of industry.
Supporting the growth of ambitious entrepreneurs lies at the heart of what we are about. At Winning Pitch, we don’t preach or teach anything we haven’t done ourselves. We have a passion for helping entrepreneurs achieve their goals. We respect individuals and teams who risk everything to chase a dream, to achieve something they can be proud of, to create wealth for communities, jobs for graduates or innovation which improves the lives of others.
We have lived and breathed the growth journey; facing issues of profit versus cash, we have navigated the challenging demands of raising finance, and at times self-doubt warred with the drive to succeed. Walking the narrow path between success and failure is a steep climb but worth it when goals are achieved, and the new path is clear.
We take the advice we give and over the years been blessed with the wisdom of so many remarkable business advisers.
We care about the clients we serve and have a deep empathy with the growth journey – we have both the credibility and licence to speak to our clients on an equal footing and on the basis of having ‘been there and done it’.
We pride ourselves on providing trusted advice, something that virtually every entrepreneur craves for.
