‘Thank you so much for your time once again! Your advice at the sessions I’ve had with you and your team since completing my MBA and during the programme have been invaluable. I think my success at both interviews I have attended was in large part due to the preparation techniques that I received from you and your team. It was particularly helpful to have the follow-up sessions with you in London and I really appreciate the time you gave me. You might be interested to know that I am in touch with several of my fellow alumni who feel the same about your coaching programme. The general view is that your services were the highlight of the business school’s career management sessions. I would like to keep in touch and please give my regards to all your colleagues.
Best wishes, Vivian Davies, MBA Durham
“The Programme gives practical and applicable tools for career development and success at work. Understanding ‘self’ and personalising a winning profile for interviews and meetings are uniquely insightful.”
Dr Graham Davies, FRSA, Fellow Commoner, Sidney Sussex College, University of Cambridge.
“John Lowe has provided consistent and personal support as I navigate my career from successful qualification through the early years of clinical practice and into the broad future ahead of me. I will use the Programme as a guide for career related decisions.”
Dr Stephanie Johnson
“I have thoroughly enjoyed following the Programme and I can confirm that your style and approach has fast forwarded my career progress. I can relate to and endorse your summary of the programme as being “ a permanent and comprehensive expert coach for personal and career development.”
Simon Manasseh, former General Manager - Western Harvesters (CLAAS)
“There is no doubt that your kind coaching helped me a lot to explore my strengths and weaknesses which has been one of my best experiences of my course. I will certainly let you know when I need your further help.”
Zhigao, International MBA student – Bath University
“The Resource on listening skills and in particular stress, relative to the four personality types, is insightful and highly relevant to today’s business environment. By helping the Coachee understand their own personality type and how that relates to others in a work scenario, Lowe has provided a structured and sequential approach to job selection, winning at interview and performing in the role. The Programme is relevant for anyone, irrespective of their job type or professional status, who may be seeking practical, real-world guidance on how to identify their ideal role and excel in their chosen field.“
Adam Smith, Business Consultant
‘I have found working with you to be very rewarding and challenging. All tips and structures that you have outlined I have applied when I am in meetings with potential employers. You are, in my opinion, the most professional coaching company that the business school has used as an outsourced service.’
MBA Student - Kingston University
‘The Programme is an impressive and instructive piece and clearly relates to an eager audience who will benefit greatly from its contents and to particularly those who are struggling to find work.
Edward Brunel-Cohen, former Global Head of Finance, Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment
“To move from an IT City based career into teaching in a London inner-city school I had a very difficult decision to make. I did not feel completely fulfilled in my city career and needed advice about how I could progress into a role where I would be challenged and would really enjoy. John is very good at ensuring that he does not make decisions for you but steers you along the decision-making path - a path which had become rather confused for me! After our discussions a career in teaching/education was at the top of my list. John provided expert advice in tailoring my CV and provided superb guidance on interview technique all of which helped in me being accepted on to a very oversubscribed course with the UK’s leading educational establishment. The Programme provides all the advice, guidance and expert knowledge that John has acquired in a concise but very warm and friendly format. The detail on Personality Profiles, CV styling and interview technique will allow an individual, regardless of the career they are pursuing, to make the next brave steps forward. The advice helped me and for that I am truly grateful. I am in a job where I am challenged, rewarded and most importantly absolutely love.”
Jake Armstrong, Secondary School Teacher
Excellent. A most thought-provoking approach, a real asset in making strategic HR decisions.
Bill Thomas, former Senior Vice President and General Manager Hewlett Packard EMEA.
"Uniquely relates to both ‘sides of the desk’. It will enhance the expertise of HR professionals and is an invaluable guide to those seeking expert career guidance."
Andy Kemp, formerly De La Rue Plc. Group Director of HR
“You managed to present sometimes rather complicated psychological facts in a very short, simple and easy to understand way. Your language is clear and specific and you manage to keep the unavoidable repetitions (to make the individual resource modules readable in their own right) to a minimum. Particularly useful are the formats, templates and questionnaires and the respective advice. But as absolutely outstanding I found the ‘Responding to job advertisements’. It provides such a wealth of advice, which may sound logical but does not come naturally to the inexperienced applicant and it also shows your extraordinary experience in the subject. I have never seen anything similar before. Your analysis, advice and your tips for the interviewing practice are all very valuable knowhow to any manager. I wish I had this expert insight when I still was interviewing, as I did it mostly structured only around historical data and hard job related facts not knowing how to sensitively tackle the soft aspects. Likewise your Programme will provide useful material for all ambitious and experienced professionals. It must be rewarding to pass on this wealth of experience and know how in a rather specific topic to the wider professional public.”
Uwe Muller, former Managing Director Siemens Power Generation
“John Lowe’s approach gave me the tools to present myself to the interview panel in a clear, dynamic and effective way. I was selected for a place in Chambers against 300 other highly qualified applicants.”
Oscar Matthew, Barrister.
“John Lowe gave me valuable support and advice during the lengthy process of selection, training and qualifying as a medical doctor. I shall refer to the Lowe Profiler as an expert career reference tool when I must choose the GP or consultancy route. The positive ‘can do’ tone is motivational for anyone in whatever employment.”
Dr Lauren Trisk
‘I have found the career support from you and Regent Coaching very helpful. I think it is both professional and efficient.
To begin with, your coaching has helped me to realise that I would be most happy in working with something that is related to my previous experience. In that respect, the personality profiler was one of the things that helped me. Secondly, I have found your coaching in the interview techniques very helpful. I really enjoyed our last meeting in London! At the same time, I realise that preparing for an interview is important and I can still improve my performance. I feel that I have improved in the main thing: taking the initiative and focusing on how best to illustrate my main skills. In our last meeting I learned that I could improve my performance in body language, keeping up the smiles, etc., in order to deliver my message more convincingly!
MBA Oxford Brookes University
‘I have really benefited from your excellent coaching. It has helped me to be proactive and to target my job / project hunting. I think that all of you (Jane, John,) have a lot of experience in the field. I believe that you know what companies require from applicants and what they expect for managerial positions. Thus, you are highly capable and able to provide accurate advice.
Also, I have found you very friendly, open, and highly professional. I am very happy with the University of Durham because they have complemented my academic education with the expertise knowledge from the Regent Coaching Team.
MBA Durham International Student

“John Lowe’s wealth of experience as both a head-hunter and coach has resulted in a refreshingly honest approach to career development.
This will be invaluable to MBA students re-positioning themselves in the current turbulent job market.
Self-knowledge is an important attribute and the four personality types provide an invaluable tool for developing this.”
Professor Patricia Rees, former Director MBA Programmes Manchester Metropolitan University
"This is an excellent programme which summarises the guidance John has given to MBA students at some of the UK’s top business schools, not to mention countless practising managers and senior executives. If you want a high-profile career, the Lowe Profiler is a very good primer for preparing your job search, CV development and interview technique. I know it works as I have used it successfully myself."
Dr Huw Morris former Dean, Manchester Metropolitan University Business School
"This coaching programme made me more aware of my core strengths and provided me with a universal ‘tool’ that I can use whenever I want to successfully present myself. I have a stronger self-awareness – and it has really worked for me as I now have an attractive job offer!"
Nadine Vieker MBA Judge Business School Strategy Consultant, University of Cambridge
“The interview and coaching instruction was invaluable – not only did it focus me on my key strengths, but it provided me with a clear and simple platform to deliver these. I felt that my ability to perform was significantly enhanced and would certainly recommend the Lowe Profiler to my colleagues. I felt that it also enhanced my skills and understanding of myself.”
