Use cases

The thinkers I work with have asked for a wide variety of things including:

Accountability Steps

I want to set some milestones and find a way to actually hit them.

Generate a Roadmap

What are options and possibilities I have to take this forward?

What's the business model?

I'm having trouble monetising my product and finding its niche.

Breaking out of a funk

Things aren't working or going fast enough, how do I do things differently?


I'm not sure what the value of our service is? How can we make sense of it?

Experimentation in low- and no-code

I want to prove out what we're trying to do before we invest.

‘Curiosity.’ 'Clarity.’ ‘Encouragement.’

Here are the kind words of people I've coached directly:

Anjali Sharma
Faiz challenged me to think differently about myself in an extremely powerful way, if you’re lucky enough to work with him, be ready for some significant reflection and change coming your way. But be ready to embrace it.

I was impressed by Faiz’s capacity to think around corners and I really valued his ability to massage complicated ideas into plain, simple language.
