YourCoachApproach, a Brief History

In 2019 Andrew Brown left the energy trading industry that had defined his career. And went on to launch YourCoachApproach to supply online services exclusively to interior design business owners. Which at once raises the question, ‘Why interior designers?’. I’ve created a short 2-minute video that not only answers that question, but also allows you to judge my verbal communication skills. Of course, for those who just want the answer, the transcript is available in the downloadable interior design industry press pack.
