This is a biased post in the sense that I have worked with diverse and best life coaches and mentors since 2008 and I know they make a difference. I’ve helped themwith brand creation to online courses all the way to offline events. They make an impact and change lives. So we may often wonder about who may be the best coaches and mentors.
In this post in no particular order, I share some who I consider to be amongst the best coaches and mentors in the UK.
I’ve been fortunate to work with them in some capacity over the years. They are heart-centred and love to make a difference and knowing them in person I know they come from an authentic place of service to humanity.
A coach or mentor must be someone who is healed and learned enough to help and guide others from a non-judgmental perspective without projecting their own noise onto others and instead be like a lighthouse that shows you the light and helps you identify the objects and challenges that may be on the way.
The coaching and consulting industry is booming. Which sadly has resulted in many overnight” experts” jumping into the space claiming to understand how to help you get to where they want to be. But experience is essential in the sense that you must be able to solve a problem in the industry with a solution that you know works when implemented.
So here’s the Digital Rapport® top UK coaches, mentors and trainers list in no particular order.

Word of Kezia’s sold-out international workshop and her videos that received well over 72 million views, that made her a ‘Youtube sensation’, spread to one of the most highly acclaimed publishing companies in the world, and in turn, they offered her a chance to write what has now become a top-selling book “The Noble Art Of Seducing Women” This has lead to many media requests, and Kezia is now regularly featured in international newspapers/magazines and TV shows.

From getting up at five in the morning to load a van for the warehouse, putting in a full day’s manual labour, to applying himself to his studies; Sukhi was taught the discipline of hard work on every level. A solid grounding that invariably shaped a refreshingly Modest Multi-Millionaire, whose down to earth qualities and exceptional interpersonal skills drove a business empire that had grown into a formidable dynasty.
As a firm believer in; “Think Globally, Act Locally”; Sukhi provides an invaluable contribution to his local community, actively campaigning to change people’s lives for the better, tackling issues such as homelessness, better resources for adult education, equipping people with essential skills in numeracy and literacy.
Sukhi’s business motto is – Sukhi makes business SIMPLE, the word ‘ S I M P L E ‘ being an acronym for what he brings to business:
