Founder Coach To Scale Up CEOs

Empowering founder CEOs and their teams to sustainable success

Mark Farrer-Brown, Founder CEO Coach

As your business grows, you have fewer people to talk to.

With your CEO Coach, you always have a safe place to talk about the big questions that keep you up at night, that you can’t talk about with anyone else.

As your coach, I’ll hold up the mirror, challenge you to consider multiple perspectives, push forward with your learning and keep you accountable for the decisions you make.

It won’t always be comfortable but it will be blended with heart, enthusiasm and positive energy.

Below you’ll find everything you need to get started.

How to work with me

All my clients are good CEOs who want to get better. They’re often surprised by the breadth and depth of our work together, whether it’s 1:1 coaching, team coaching, facilitated workshops, or founding team assessments for leading VC firms.

Results speak volumes. Hear from my clients how CEO coaching impacted them and their companies:

Mark is a gifted individual. He brings experience, perspective and humanity to every conversation.

Luke Kennedy

Founder & CEO, Fable Data

You can read as many books as one has time for but that is a poor substitute for a live coach with deep practical knowledge in business leadership introducing these concepts and techniques at the right time in our business growth journey.

Tom Scarborough

Founder & CEO, Movewise

As he is talking to Founder CEOs all the time and understands the journey so well, having Mark as a coach is like having multiple other Founder CEOs to talk to at the same time.
