We Are

PYP was founded by Steve and Andy who are passionate about all individuals recognising and reaching their potential. 

It is their belief that leveling up in this way creates ripples across all of society resulting in a more fulfilled community.     




Powering Your Potential – A Proven Methodology for Personal and Business Growth

Powering Your Potential is built upon the years of experience, expertise and innovation in landing their message that Andy and Steve have. Understanding the fact that their combination is as unique as the people they work with, in PYP there is a proven development process, built around a simple methodology, focused on three key areas which come together in what PYP call the “Triangle of Potential”.




By mapping where people are in these skill areas, development needs can be aligned to targeted training to provide significant and rapid progress.

The tools, skills, awareness and advice provided are easily adopted and can be implemented immediately. Creating the understanding of not just what to do, but why and how you do it, is vital. Providing this Knowledge, demonstrating the Skills enables truly lasting changes in Behaviours.

The Triangle of Potential

By focusing on three core areas Communication Skills, Personal Branding and Personal Development PYP help the people and businesses we work with build the confidence and self belief to face their Challenges, pursue Opportunities and Grow.

Whilst these are distinct independent areas that can be worked on, they are all inter related and connected to each other. You cannot have a great brand if you cannot communicate it, there is no benefit of being a great communicator unless you have something to say and there is also no value to having both these things, if you are unable to land your message to your world and chosen audience.

The “Triangle of Potential” is the area where these three areas overlap and the area where the powerful combination, comes together to truly realise the individual or business potential.


Why are people not
hearing your message?


What do you want
people to think of you?


How broad a view of the
world do you have?

PYP like to develop people while ensuring they are more motivated, confident, have more self belief, are well rounded and equipped to work in, or simply face, the ever changing modern environment.

Based on learning and engagement science, PYP use strong imagery and stories in our sessions, videos, podcasts and written material to create memorable pictures in the mind of the people we work with. These will either be the picture that we give them and the story we tell or often it will be the picture they create for yourself from your own memory of a similar experience.

This process might help form their vision they want to work towards and experience tells us, nobody has a vision that is shaped by lines of bullets on a slide!

The commentary and images form a strong connection with our audience and with the ability to revisit material, the opportunities for clarification or reinforcement are enhanced. The sessions also include participation and activities to stimulate thought, engagement and ongoing development.


Meet Ollie

“Those who have watched Extreme makeover will be familiar with the process; taking a tired and run-down property in need of some TLC and transforming it into something unrecognisable. Well, this metaphor perfectly summarises the extent of the personal transformation this program has brought out in me.” Having graduated at the top of his year with a first-class degree, Ollie was bitter and frustrated as his CV was rejected through one application after another. Ollie had believed that working hard for his degree would launch him straight into a dream career despite not really knowing what that looked like. Instead, he spent two years working in the same minimum wage job as he had done before he’d graduated, feeling lost and unfulfilled. Working with Andy, Ollie adapted his CV and cover letter to stand out and explored his interests to identify opportunities for potential careers. Having created a clearer picture of what he actually wanted out of a role, interview coaching was the next step to help Ollie in his career development – giving feedback, he says:

More about Steve

By Andy

I have known Steve for over 15 years, and I can honestly say he has been an inspiration to me! This same inspiring first impression has continued throughout our business ventures. He is and has always been someone who cares about others.

Steve has told me on several occasions, he is an employer’s worst nightmare, his vision and foresight are so far in the future, others cannot see what he has the ability to see! He is a businessman through and through. Someone who understands the numbers and loves a spread sheet. Steve has worked for over 30 years within the global financial world and has managed, lead, mentored and developed people throughout his career. He has the natural ability to create an environment where drive and success are a by-product of hard work and commitment. Steve is all about value and the value you as an individual can offer. By helping others understand the value they offer and then explaining why people buy, it provides individuals with the skills to articulate their value and how sell themselves in any given situation.

Steve has a unique ability to think big, well actually massive, and then draw it right back into the detail. A skill I have never witnessed throughout my working life in public service or business. Having seen the big picture (blue sky thinking), he then quickly drills down to the finer detail and articulates the steps required to work towards the end goal. This unique ability creates excitement in others and belief that anything is possible!

Steve and I are at totally different ends of the spectrum when it comes to our thinking and strategy. You may think that this doesn’t work, but the old saying, opposite attracts are so true when it comes to our working relationship, although he can be annoying and demanding at times!

More about Andy

By Steve

Andy has a skill set that is rare and potentially unique. His years of experience in law enforcement have enabled him to hone his ability to read and communicate with people in a way that I, for one, have never seen before.  It has also been allowed to develop without the need for corporate conformity.

As a trained terrorist, hostage and crisis negotiator he has the ability to operate under the highest-pressure situations, seeing different perspectives, while co-ordinating and focusing on all aspects necessary to achieving the objective. Something that is invaluable in either individual or corporate situations.

His ability to build a connection, engagement and rapport can be unbelievable to behold. The real skill is however not just in being able to do it but in being able to help others learn and develop their skills to do the same.

If you bring these capabilities to bear alongside a burning desire to help people and be all about others rather than himself, it is a powerful combination. The impact Andy has and the value he brings is however difficult to quantify, it cannot be measured in revenue or profit it is measured in communication, human behaviour, teamworking and emotional intelligence. All the things that make both individuals and businesses successful.

Like the wind you see and feel its effects but at the same time it is invisible. It is worth its weight but can never directly translate into gold. People who work with Andy learn things that simply make them better people, whatever they go on to do!

Andy’s strengths are my weaknesses and vice versa. Our different approaches, views and styles are why we work so well together and also sometimes drive each other mad!
