Our story

Aziz was founded over 30 years ago by Khalid Aziz, a media pioneer of his day who at 21 became the youngest ever appointed BBC producer and subsequently, at the age of 24, a news reader and current affairs presenter both on radio and television. In addition to the BBC, Khalid has worked for a number of ITV franchises and Channel 4.

Khalid has won many awards for his business documentaries and this, combined with his own successful career, has fuelled his passion to help others fulfil their ambitions. And so the concept of Aziz Corporate was born. Today, the business enjoys an enviable reputation for delivering world class coaching and mentoring solutions to senior leaders across the UK and internationally.

Our Code of Ethics

The coach and mentor matchmaker for senior leaders

We help transform senior leaders at FTSE 250 or similar organisations into authentic, high performing and influential leaders by matching them with best-in-class ExCo level coaches and mentors with the right blend of industry specific experience and coaching expertise.

Excellence and Individuality

We believe each individual deserves support that is tailored to their circumstances and which includes specific expertise and experience. After all, one size rarely fits all. We also believe our executive coaches need to have senior corporate backgrounds themselves because senior leaders want someone who has sat in their seat, and who understands the complexities, pressures and politics of operating at a senior level.

We recognise coaching represents a significant commitment of time and cost and it’s important to us that we provide excellent value for both the individual and the organisation.

Honesty and Integrity

We believe in ‘doing the right thing’. We take the time to listen and really understand what’s required, asking challenging questions to identify the right approach. Then we speak individually to our coaches to get the best blend of experience, style, expertise and personality.

We also believe that, for a number of reasons, coaching is not always the answer.

If we don’t think we can help, or if we don’t think it’s the right time, we’ll tell you and we’ll put our hands up straight away if something’s not working.

Reliability and Respect

We recognise and are mindful of the demands on your time. We respect your expertise and believe in providing honest, valuable and impartial advice. We’ll never let you down, we’ll move heaven and earth to find the right solution and we’ll always keep you up to date with all programmes and insights. You’ll find us proactive but not pushy, personal in our approach and always professional.
