Ian Rustige, ACC

Managing Director and Coach ..

Ian set up Energised Engagement to expand on his passion for helping clients unlock their full potential and enable their teams to perform and feel at their best. He is a passionate coach and facilitator who works 1:1 and in groups.

Ian understands the opportunities and challenges corporate life can bring. He spent 15 years working across industry in the areas of business improvement, change and learning. During which time he experienced leading teams in complex organisations, and also savouring the highs of accomplishment and learning from the lows of failure.

He developed his passion for coaching after he experienced a period of burnout, and received some life-changing coaching through which he began to design his current professional chapter driven by his love of finding true engagement and fulfilment. Ian is now a transformational coach facilitating leadership development programmes including inclusion and diversity leadership development, and group and team coaching to develop high performance team behaviours.

Clients who work with Ian comment that they are always struck by how much he loves working with people. He enters his coaching and training with a genuine enthusiasm, optimism and positivity for the future but in a gentle and compelling way; it is the hallmark of his style. Ian holds an ACC International Coach Federation credential, an Engineering degree and a Masters degree in Management. In his spare time, Ian loves running and cycling in the Surrey Hills.
