Ian Munro

Ian specialises in working with growing and developing organisations. His focus is on improving performance at team or individual levels. He brings real value to organisations because of his successful track reord of working at board level for over 25 years as an operating and main board director, as a non-executive director and as a coach and mentor. He has worked across a wide range of business sectors for blue chip organisations, and the Public Sector.

A key aspect of his service is that clients can use him flexibly based on their needs. Sessions can be two hourly once a month or more frequently when needed.

Pragmatic and hands-on, Ian helps managers and directors cope with change in both developing and turnaround situations. He has a track record of achieving results in tough challenging environments. His approach has been welcomed in both Public and Private Sector assignments where he utilises performance coaching techniques with top teams.


Ian has been working with clients like you for over 20 years. He works through his company NextStepsGroup Limited and as an associate for other consultancies including a leading HR consultancy.

In 1998 he founded a network of consultants who operate as the Link Management Group. They bring expertise across all disciplines and sectors to help clients with “spot” specialist help as and when needed.

In his previous corporate life Ian was a PLC board director of Reliance Security Group plc and a member of the team that “floated” that business. Prior to this he held senior sales roles up to director level for blue chip organisations.
