    i can fit out a room with bean bags (fully washable in case of accidents) and soft animals, play a bit of whalesong and ode to joy in the background.

    Maybe employ NLyUK to provide executive relief.

    I guess if marriage is a measure of success...

    How about success being measured in terms of meeting people you like spending quality time with?

    Years ago a friend of mine set-up a quite successful executive dating agency.

    It consisted of group dinners in nice London restaurants. He used to call me regularly, pay my dinner to attend and just let me be my charming self.

    I got a fair number of one-night-stands out of it as a perk but these women were certainly not marriage material.

    Anyway, I'm taken now.

    You loved it when they removed their false teeth!

    They suggested converting a grade 1 listed building to a hotel with a modern annexe (100 beds with the rest). The sort of thing Prince Charles would call a carbuncle. No mention of the fact that there would be more chance of getting planning permission to build a nuclear power station in the back garden of a 3 bed semi in Slough.
    The consultant did a bunk as soon as the invoice was paid and he only delivered 16 pages of bulltulip! His drawings were crap and the planning officer had a giggle.
    A coach and a consultant are different things, which one was it?

    Top of the range Executive Coaches who coach senior execs in big companies typically charge £400-600 ph for a coaching session.
