Testimonials

Freefort have been my go-to option for quality coaches with breadth and depth of expertise. I have worked with them for over seven years in a huge variety of contexts – coaching partners, facilitating tricky meetings, conducting interviews and research and delivering presentations and training. They truly invest in understanding businesses and I would highly recommend them.

Jennifer Emery, People Director, Advent International Ltd

We have worked with Freefort for a number of years. Not only are they professional and highly experienced, they are a pleasure to work with. They are particularly skilled at flexing their style and approach to match the ‘audience’, whether that be a group of very senior partners dealing with team dynamics and strategy or a group of newly promoted partners planning their medium to long term careers.

Paul Eagland, Managing Partner, BDO LLP

Mark has been brilliant. I engaged him to work with a team of my partners to help them improve their overall performance. He worked with them individually and as a group, listened to them and facilitated them coming up with a revised business plan. Their year on year performance has improved by 9%. There is no way we would have achieved this without Mark’s input.

Simon Pilcher, Partner and Practice Group Leader, CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP

Mark has been my executive coach over the past 12 months. He’s been superb, challenging, knowledgeable, an excellent listener, directive at times too. I have no doubt that my decision-making has been honed, my jumble of ideas has been focussed and my strategy has been sharpened as a result of Mark’s input.

Robert Shooter, Partner, Fieldfisher LLP

A reliable sounding board… he has a great network and uses it to cross-fertilise ideas and to source new concepts.

Thomas Harding, Access Industries

I have found Mark’s insight and experience of the legal profession invaluable in terms of both practice development and market understanding. He is an excellent listener and a first-rate sounding board and has had some very good suggestions which have added real value. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Tim Otty, QC, Blackstone Chambers

One of the most engaging and informative training programmes I have ever participated in.

Participant feedback from the Emerging Leaders Programme delivered for Gowling WLG

Mark is a great sounding board who offers friendly and incisive suggestions, always tinged with a healthy dose of commercial pragmatism. He has an uncanny knack of recognising the issues facing a business and identifying solutions that are effective and achievable.
