With some 40 years at the helm of driving business success, Eddie Thomas knows what it takes to get results. Having managed, grown and sold a variety of businesses in his career, in 2014 he turned his focus towards using his years of experience towards helping others to do the same. And so Rare Breed was born.
Eddie’s appreciation for mentoring can be traced as far back as the launch of his career in a publishing company in London – when the owner recognised a rare talent in an inexperienced 20-year-old and thus began many years of a unique mentoring relationship. The steep learning curve paid off and within 12 years he had risen to CEO and sold the company to Robert Maxwell (Daily Mirror Group). Since then he has accumulated experience in acquisitions, capital raising, mergers, equity events, MBOs, amongst many of the other challenges and opportunities businesses face, hands-on experience he is now able to share with his clients.
Eddie is a master business advisor who can show you exactly what needs to be done to take your business to the next level. He is an extremely likeable, straight shooting business advisor who can successfully identify the best strategies and tactics to see any business flourish.

After 18 years of working for corporations in international marketing, Mark set up his own company. Initially extremely successful, the company went bust due to a bad debt from a major client, and triggered a personal breakdown. Mark then changed his life by training in the neurosciences and has never looked back. He set up his own behavioural psychotherapy practice in 2000 and has since helped thousands of businesses thrive by working with the leader to tackle personal limitations such as stress, anxiety, depression, lack of self esteem and motivation.
Mark has an MBA and is a Fellow of The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA); a Member of The International Stress Management Association (ISMA); an Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM); and of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
Mark’s rare combination of knowledge and experience, which combines behavioural, organisational and leadership psychology, executive coaching and resilience and wellbeing, provides business owners with fast, far-reaching and effective solutions guaranteed to transform employee engagement, motivation, productivity and thereby growth and profitability.
What do business owners have to say about Mark?
“I have found Mark’s way of approaching things refreshingly different to the run of the mill. He isn’t ‘heavy’, he encourages you to think from a completely different angle and doesn’t harp on about the past. Mark is more ‘bespoke’ and with him you are guaranteed gentle support and plenty of ‘light bulb moments’, which is exactly what you need to when you are losing direction and need a reality check to help you re-clarify your vision and where to take your business. I would heartily recommend him.”

“Mark is simply excellent at what he does, he truly cares and will not stop until he has helped you move forward. Well worth the investment of time and money.”
