Built On Solid Foundations

It's As Simple As 1,2,3...
Work On The Business, Not In The Business
We know it can be hard finding time to work on your personal development but sometimes taking the time to reflect is exactly what’s required.. eVolve will enable you to work on the business not in the business and will give you that clarity of focus to help you develop and grow.
Learn Through Coaching & Peer Mentoring
The ES Executive coaches take the principles of one to one coaching and apply it to a group setting. This offers the unique opportunity to coach and be coached. A perfect blend of coaching and peer learning may see you achieve more in one session than you would achieve in a year.
Challenge Yourself & Be Challenged
Arguably the main benefit of the eVolve programme is the access to an engaged peer learning community who you will be able to call upon. Challenge and be challenged and learn from Scotland's brightest and best. They will help you fast-track your business goals.
ES Executive Coaches
I’ve been in the entrepreneurial leadership space for the last seven years, working with over 300 entrepreneurs at every stage of business whilst coaching at the world largest free accelerator - Entrepreneurial Spark.
Leaving there to set up my own specialist consultancy, Mindset Experts, I focus on leaders who are in a growth phase of their business, helping them to develop their mindset and
reshape their strategic approach. This also includes preparing the business for first\second round investment raises, running governance groups and working with the core team to create cultural shifts.
Ultimately my role is about helping entrepreneurs to get clarity on where they want to go next, how they’re going to do it and who they want to become as a leader.
Sarah Lock Leadership
I’m Sarah Lock and I’ve always been fascinated by people. What makes us tick? What makes us happy? What fulfills us? Why do some people succeed, while others are held back from living their best life?
Over the last 25 years, my interest in people has taken me across Europe, the USA and Asia working with clients in diverse sectors including financial services, technology, construction, pharmaceuticals, hospitality and retail. During this time I’ve coached and supported some terrific individuals and teams; from CEO's in large organisations to entrepreneurs and graduates all with unique challenges and perspectives. By applying the best thinking about leadership, learning and change I create practical solutions which help individuals and organisations perform better.
