MORE About Me

From Start-up Founder & CEO
to Professional Coach, Business Mentor & Advisor.

After university, a career managing digital departments of a number of magazine publishing companies was followed by the launch of my first start-up. With two co-founders we started and scaled up an international online advertising platform business. After 10 years successfully working with my co-founders in a number of businesses and an eventual acquisition it was time for me to make a change.

In 2019 I took some time away from the frontlines on business to concentrate on creating a unique style of personal and business coaching. The aim was to create a propriety methodology and style that combined the flexibility & mindful depth of personal development together with the logical and analytical rigour from executing business strategy. 

I commenced this new path with an initial education into Advanced Humanistic Psychology coaching and the following years saw me gain Master Practitioner status in Neuro Linguistic Programming. Now with thousands of hours of coaching experience and also becoming an internationally accredited NLP trainer, I am well placed to compliment my business and entrepreneurial experience with credible world class human behaviour science and change technology.

In 2021 I founded and launched NLP Principles and shortly after my book 'Become an NLP Practitioner with NLP Principles' was released - to my delight hitting Amazon bestseller status. Via NLP Principles I now get to work with truly incredible clients, helping elite individuals and high-end businesses in hospitality, elite sports and recruitment to improve performance exactly where it matters creating sustainable change the only way that really works - Behaviour Change.

What people say about working with me...

Lee operates at a very high level. He's strategic and stoic as well as being someone who thrives on taking action. He lives and breathes integrity. I trust him and I enjoy time with him. Lee's one of those people who, put simply: you're better off for knowing.

Sam Dyer, 
Coach & Director, Raven Dragon 

Lee and I worked together through a very challenging transaction and I was taken aback by his unique and holistic approach to business. He’s not a maverick but a real game changer MD and leaves nothing to chance. Always inquisitive and keen to find out what he doesn’t know. Would definitely recommend and am looking forward to the next opportunity to work with him.

Andrew Pordage FCCA
PT FD & CFO, Regional Director The FD Centre

I've worked with Lee in quite a few businesses over the period of 15 years and have to say he is an all round top man! His keen eye for detail, professional manner and personable nature make him a pleasure to work with. I'm sure our paths will cross again, as they have many times before!

James Hanslip, 
CEO, Lean Digital Media

Lee is an absolute inspiration. His vision and drive is a real guide on how to succeed in life. He has been instrumental in how I have forged my career and I owe a great deal to his advice and guidance which he gives unreservedly.
His sense of business and eye for detail has allowed him to reach the very top of his profession, influencing those around him and encouraging them to do well.
He balances all of this business acumen and professional work ethic with a wonderful personality.

Paul Hilton, 
Senior Lecturer, Bournemouth Arts University

It's been a real pleasure working with Lee over a period of 10 years. He is a real motivator with an infectious enthusiasm and ambition to drive projects to their successful completion. He is a dedicated perfectionist, his knowledge is vast and thorough but most of all his approachable and personable manner is what sets him apart from the many.

Stuart Dixon, 
Founder of Actio Digital |
The Ignited Man Podcast

If you're looking for a non-exec or a coach that will help you remove the blocks you have (wherever they are stemming from), with no fluff but data and iteration there is no one better than Lee. It’s that simple.

Lee Mallon, 
Founder of Rarely Impossible

It’s rare that you come across someone as driven to succeed as Lee. I had the pleasure of working with him for the last 13-14 years across three companies. An extremely strong background in driving process, finance and legal understanding with a creative mind and background in development. Lee is a complete professional, dedicated and passionate about business. A great person to have worked with!

Ben Spencer, 
COO, Lean Digital Media

I have the honour of knowing Lee for over 25 years. His level of awareness, sensitivity, care and intellect is what makes Lee such a fascinating person to know. I cannot imagine a single person that would not be able to comfortably connect with him and be fascinated from his insights. He is exceptionally astute. Its one thing a person being able to observe how and why you operate the way you do, but quite another for them to have the experience and skill to plan and facilitate the change you want to make in yourself.

Mike Barnett, 
Founder of Medialounge
