This is SFB


Steve Jones is a well -known business coach, public speaker, trainer and consultant. Steve is an expert at creating ideas and strategies that build businesses, drive revenue and improve business position and performance.

He has a passion for making companies and their products the best in their product category. Steve’s unique understanding of leadership and management, team building and motivation in business, coupled with his understanding, drive and enthusiasm, clearly set him aside as an expert.

Steve gained his knowledge and expertise firstly by being part of the management team of one of the UK’s most phenomenal business success stories.

Steve was part of a management team at Fitness First PLC, which went from a handful of health clubs on the south coast to become the largest Health Club Chain in Europe and then the world, taking the AIM and FTSE by storm, all in a seven year period.

Steve freely admits:

"One of the keys to our success was putting together robust systems and teams fast!"

Steve followed this by joining International Coaching Giants, Shirlaws International - specialist in SME Coaching – again a company that had an amazing success story, before setting up his company, Skills for Business Training in 2002, where his main focus has been helping businesses and teams strategically grow.
