About Us

Live Well, Love Well, Lead Well.

LW3 stands for Live Well, Love Well, Lead Well. We think this is a worthy definition of success for both us and the people and organisations that we work with.

For the last six years LW3 has been helping organisations to grow well; helping organisations grow up without growing old and helping people to flourish without collapse or burnout.

LW3 was started in 2017 by its founder Mark and his wife Sarah.
Hi, I’m Mark the managing director of LW3.

Everyone has a story. In fact, you are in the middle of yours now. Stories are powerful, and the most important story is the one you tell yourself. Your story helps you to explain the past, make sense of the present and shape your future.

At the heart of my story is a mental health crisis. In 2006, I suffered a nervous breakdown whilst managing a major incident with a high-profile client. This was a moment that changed everything for me. At the time, I didn’t know how to describe what was happening to me, but it felt like the plug had been pulled and I really did think it was the end.

Thankfully it was not, and I lived to tell the story and continue to write a better one. A story that I have used to explore what it means for people and organisations to succeed truly, sustainably.

Helping individuals and organisations to write a better story has become the foundation on which LW3 is built. It can look like many things – counselling, coaching, mentoring, planning – but it always starts with a conversation.
