The founder of Noble Manhattan, whose previous experience includes many years in the armed forces, has applied the attitude of discipline and thoroughness to the development of his own business.

He wishes Noble Manhattan to be seen as the foremost in “offering an invaluable and professional service” to all its clients, and he is able to achieve this because of his own accomplishments, bringing to the company extensive personal experience, knowledge and a unique style of teaching essential life skills.

After many years in the Royal Marines, Gerard started his business career in financial services. He founded and developed his own company that became the largest privately owned life assurance organization.

However, he found himself working around the clock and ultimately realized that things had to change. After searching through many self-improvement disciplines, Gerard found that Life Coaching worked; for him it was the ‘hub that held the rest of the disciplines together’.

In 1992 Gerard, who has a Masters degree in Psychology, went on to found Noble Manhattan which, to date, has trained over 1,400 Coaches. He has become an acclaimed international, public speaker, trainer and personal developer.

The Princes Youth Business Trust recognized his skills and appointed him to work with young people in starting their own businesses. Gerard also helps people through individual Life Coaching, which is often done over the telephone following a personal interview.
