"Hi, I am Sean Foster and I help business owners and professionals to grow their businesses, to improve their bottom line profitability and to allow them to regain that often missing component, being their work-life balance.

Through experience I have often found that as a business owner you are often not 100% sure of exactly what part of your business you should be working on, or if someone like myself can add genuine value to your operation.

The easiest, safest and quickest way to figure this out is really to book a complimentary strat session with me.

My promise: If I am not the right person to help you, then I will say so directly and do my best to connect you with that person. If it looks like I could be the right person, then we can consider the options going forward. So, go ahead and book your session now.

Qualified ICF coaches practice according to a script code of conduct.

ACE Certified Coach

ACE is an advanced coaching qualification that focuses on developing awareness around purpose, emotions and motivation, complexity and decision making. From a coaching perspective, the question is never about ‘does your coach understands these concepts’. The challenge is for the coach to develop this awareness in the coachee, for it is they, that need to act on these insights. Developing this ability is part art, part science. The ACE programme consolidates decades of practical experience from world-renowned coaching experts David Goldsmith and David Peterson.


RedTeam coaching is a system-wide methodology for problem solving in a business. Business, and life in general, is navigated by how you percieve the world around you, and how you decide to respond to these perspectives. Critical thinking together with increased awareness of your behavioural tendencies, biases, and together with disciplined practice is a skill that we can and should always be finetuning.

Being a Slave to your business Sucks!

As a business owner you have to dig deep into their mental resources, especially when things are more challenging. Spend too much of your day in this area and your energy gets drained, you loose passion for your business, you make "lazy" business decisions, profitability sucks and partial or full depression can ensue. Mindset, Resilience and Improving your productivity are some of the counter measures.

I like that he practices what he preaches. He has also developed an easy to use framework for managing and tracking projects business outcomes. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a business coach."

Greg Barnes
Owner - Bio Leaf Plant Nutrients

"Working with the BIG group has really been awesome because it gives me the ability to talk right to the business owners. As an SME owner, having access to a safe environment made up of like-minded people, who are not trying to flog their stuff to you is both rare and valuable. I find the BIG Group really supportive. You get insightful answers, this applies to all areas of personal & business development. The more you give, the more you get."

Stephanie Lowe
Owner - Insinc Products Ltd

"Sean is genuinely committed to the success of every business he works with. The BIG program is highly adaptable and offers a dynamic approach to Business Development, opening each and every business up to build new systems and habits. The BIG environment offers many perspectives into a business, from both Sean and the other members which is an invaluable insight and allows for ideas to be thrown around in a safe way and be accountable to the goals set. Thanks heaps Sean and I look forward to your continued support!"

Andrew Good
Owner - Focus Media

"I have been working with sean over the past two months and have found his program so beneficial and im only half way through it . Sean is very understanding and clear with his directions. Supporting me with my personal growth in understanding the financials better and how to see the potential growth, not only in revenue but growing a better team culture with in the business to support everyone. 25yrs in my business, it never too late to do things better or differently. Highly recommend"

Sharon Sanderson
Owner - Northland Hair

"If you are looking for a quick fix then Sean Foster's business coaching program isn't for you, if however you are wanting sage business advice that works, to improve your business income and create a stronger more stable proposition then I can recommend Sean's coaching based on my own experience. I've had other coaches but Sean has been the best without a doubt."

Toby Yorke

"If you want the best business advice and or coaching then I would recommend Sean Foster. He has a wealth of experience in business and business structure and management and can certainly help any business. He has helped me and I have appreciated it."

Brenton Faithfull

"My business is benefiting from the different perspective and insights that Sean offers in his calm and understated manner. He's a guy you can count on to deliver on the promise. He's honest and easy to work with. I recommend him highly."

Bruce Thompson

"Business coaching is an industry I have typically been sceptical of selling theories with a lack of real experience and glossy cookie cutter templates. I wanted to work with someone who has real life experience in successfully scaling a SME in NZ and could show how their systerms had been successfully implemented. Sean has offered this and much more with a collection of material and situational problem solving. The investment has been worth it and produced real results. My advice is to not think about the investment you could possibly lose but rather the return this will most possibly produce."

Doug Rendell

"I switched coaches 2 and a half years ago and at that time, the business was growing but we were on a difficult growth stage and things aren't quite right mostly on our financials. What I like about Sean is that he offers a unique package where we get to have a structured environment. It helped me focus on financials and 90-day planning. It's something that I wouldn't do on my own. Being part of the BIG Group, it's not like you are accountable to other business in the room but you share what you are doing, what your challenges are and through that you learn from others as well. It's a healthy way of paying attention to the right numbers and 90-day planning. I'm seeing a significant improvement in profitability over the last two years, from having attention paid to the right areas consistently. This gives me lower stress levels and confidence in my business."

Steve Reynolds
Master & Commander - Aqua Filter Rodney

"When I came along to the BIG Group and having some coaching from Sean, what it did is it helped us focus on what is important, helped us understand what we are offering in our value proposition. Working alongside Sean actually helps us get some clarity, focus, we started putting some work together that would actually fast track us and it has helped us move quite a bit faster than we were. If you want to grow your business and you feel like you want an outside perspective and coaching, Sean is really a great coach and BIG Group is really a great support mechanism and helps you achieve your goals."

Nick Hindson
Founder, Trainer & Facilitator - Market Share

"Being a solopreneur, I needed to connect with people because I miss connecting with other people and grasping ideas around which we kind of did at our franchisee meetings. And so I find that BIG actually fills that gap. Most franchises and corporates have a support system in place. It's the same type of thing, you get insights from other people's business and how different things work as well. One of the biggest takeaways that I actually had was when we came into COVID and I was thinking what's the economy gonna do, do I need to diversify and stuff? But with Sean's expert coaching and advisory, it helps you choose the right options, provides focus and is result-driven."
