The Coach with the Hat is a new force in performance coaching, allowing as many people as possible to empower themselves toward better lives and greater achievement. The Coach with the Hat was created by Elliot Kay, who developed the Empowering Coaching System (ECS), is himself a Peak Performance Coach, noted speaker, and author of ‘It’s Your Right to be Wrong’.
In an earlier career, against all odds and the advice of all those around him, Elliot had achieved his dream of becoming a professional dancer – recognized on the world stage and accumulating over 1000 hours in front of audiences, life was good… While performing a routine move, Elliot sustained a career ending injury and was forced to pursue a different path with his life.
Using the same drive and determination, Elliot pushed himself through various occupations in an effort to find an alternative career with the same level of satisfaction: Already successful in the world of corporate training and development, it was not until a chance encounter with a friend that his eyes were opened to the world of coaching, and the positive impact that it could have on people’s lives. Elliot quickly realized that this was a path he would choose to follow.
In the time since that day, Elliot has worked with a multitude of professionals and athletes alike to help them unlock their potential and overcome any obstacle on their road to success. He has worked with a professional cyclist, mentally preparing and guiding him through on of Europe’s most arduous tests of endurance, as well as leading goal setting sessions with Gold Medal Winning Olympic Rowers. As well as helping individual athletes achieve their goals, Elliot also works with business people – individually or part of a team: One recent client saw an increase in customer retention of 40% after working with him.
In the past 12 months, Elliot has garnered significant attention as a result of 2 things: Placing 3rd in the ‘Britain’s Next Top Coach’ competition gave The Coach with the Hat brand national recognition. Additionally, Elliot has also published the first book under The Coach with the Hat banner: ‘It’s Your Right to be Wrong’ is a powerful, concise, snapshot of Elliot’s no holds barred philosophy and life lessons.
Professionally known as The Coach with the Hat, Elliot Kay is a Peak Performance Coach working with business owners and entrepreneurs to accelerate results through his unique and proven Empowering Coaching System.
Working across both corporate and experiential training, he has delivered training programmes for the likes of Sky Television, Talk Talk, NHS and Hewlett Packard, facilitated his very own ground breaking experiential seminar POWER TO SUCCEED and delivered advanced training for the world renowned Frontier Trainings.
Recently, Elliot has been a featured speaker at numerous events nationally, having spoken in front of thousands in the last 12 months on the subject ‘It’s Your Right To Be Wrong’, also the title of his book. Known for his passion, high energy, live interventions and ability to get results from people fast, Elliot brings a fresh approach and delivers a high-impact experience.
Elliot will be sharing his success formula which has helped turn his business round and impact 100’s of lives over the last year alone.
