Why Choose The BCA?
Knowing and doing are not the same!
After a decade of working with leaders at top brands in the UK and Internationally, we believe that in leadership development there is far too much information, and not nearly enough application. With all the neuro and behavioural science, performance psychology, emotional intelligence, mindfulness and so much more, it can get pretty overwhelming!
But it all counts for very little without practical application. Whether you are looking to achieve your accredited coaching credential or to develop your leaders, we cut through the noise and give you the knowledge you need, quickly and simply, to put into practise immediately.
What makes us different
Practical application backed up with theory. Not the other way around
No trainers, only tried and tested business coaches
The BCA is owned and led by two world renowned, award winning, leadership coaches
We walk the walk
Our faculty only consists of working business coaches with the battle scars to prove it. No nonsense and definitely no fluff, we support learning by sharing real life examples and stories of the good, bad and ugly, drawn from decades of working at the sharp end of every conceivable type of organisation (and there’s not much we haven’t seen!).
Just challenging and practical development centred around the reality of leading within organisations today. Sleeves rolled up, committed and courageous. Just leadership.

"The time we have invested with the BCA as a leadership team has made all the difference. We would never have gone to this depth ourselves – we are now set to lead a great future.”
"I can whole heartedly recommend all three of the Coaching programs provided & delivered by the BCA. Each course is well constructed with insightful content and modules. The opportunities for practical application and feedback whether 121 or by group is well facilitated which allows for significant personal learning & development. The onboarding to each program and continued support provided with the off-program activities to assist with accreditation enables an extremely professional service."
"The BCA delivers with warmth, humour and a deep understanding of what works for us. This has led to outstanding results far beyond what we anticipated. Long may our partnership continue.”
"The BCA have already taken us to the next level as Krispy Kremers. We are excited about partnering with them over the coming years”
"I was fairly skeptical at first having been on various coaching and management development programmes over the years but I have to say this was outstanding. Even attending the Foundations programme virtually via zoom (due to lockdown) did not impact the quality of learning."
"Not only did we cover what coaching can mean today; the BC Academy coaching Level 1 course was an all-rounded 2-day session looking to bring together everything you ever learnt about great communication and self-management. The session was nothing but engaging, future-focused and really challenged misconceptions and paved the way for a flexible and dynamic approach to coaching. Can’t wait for Level 2!”
"A huge success from my point of view, it very much hit the spot. The whole SMT are ‘buzzing’ with the strategies and understanding they got from it, me included. Many have put it straight into practice (combat sport) and are sold on how this will make them more successful. The consensus is that it gave practical strategies instead of genetic theories and they felt it was very bespoke to their needs. The more experienced managers including me, Matt and Steve felt it was the best training we have had in this area. Also I have to mention the huge benefit it’s going to have on the younger managers, specifically the likes of Luke and Ryan who are new to their leadership roles."
"Energetic, highly professional and an approach based on solid and wide experience."
"Yesterday I graduated from The BCA and I would like to thank them for their support, drive and enthusiasm. Learning levels 1 to 3 in 2 months. Wow! I would recommend all my friends and colleagues to visit their website and signup. The tools, techniques and models will help you drive your team / business to another level."
"Our entire leadership team have benefited hugely from the BCA's Foundations programme and the results have been clear; record breaking performance across all metrics and significant gains in staff engagement - the foundations of productivity and well-being of any organisation."
"I have now completed levels 1 & 2, Foundations and Awareness and am eager to graduate through to Evolution asap. I have other coaching accreditation's but this one stands head and shoulders above the others. The facilitators are amazing, so experienced and pragmatic and tell you what's its really like to be a professional coach. Can't recommend highly enough."
"I found the coaching masterclass with the BCA to be enormously inspiring. The facilitators were amazing and it especially helped when we talked about it in the context of 360 Coaching, and the courage to ask those difficult questions.I would highly recommend!"
"The BCA represents excellent value for money, for any business serious about investing in their coaching capability"
Ticking boxes, or committed to measurable change?
If it’s the latter then we’d love to talk. It doesn’t always make us popular, but we push back on as much work as we accept, because we won’t commit to anything where we don’t believe we can make a measurable difference. Are you wanting to help and support your leaders but not sure how? We’ll work with you to create something impactful, lasting and that suits your budget.
