Gordon Ryan


As a Chartered Occupational Psychologist and experienced Executive Coach, Gordon enjoys supporting individuals and teams to identify the drivers behind behaviour; enabling the achievement of goals and aspirations.

His approach is friendly and invites people to challenge themselves; focusing on establishing practical real-world solutions while subtly drawing on evidence from work psychology. Gordon was previously the Principal Psychologist and senior manager for the College of Policing directing, designing and delivering leadership assessment and development across the UK. He went on to develop a successful consultancy delivering performance through people.

Gordon has worked with organisations such as Bentley Motors, Moy Park Foods, Balfour Beatty, Engie, Asteral Ltd, Q Medical, Police Scotland, Cabinet Office and College of Policing coaching at all levels from high potential talent pools to top-level executives and board members.

“Gordon made me believe in myself, find my real purpose and strive beyond the boundaries that I had constrained myself in.”
