About Us

Our Story

Mightify was born to show 999/911 personnel that they are capable of more than they think. If we can "amplify" a sound, or "intensify" efforts, we can Mightify your innate strengths and value. We've has evolved from a small, award-winning start-up to a recognised leader in coaching and development for the emergency services, working directly with many public sector organisations and thousands of talented people worldwide. 


We take a blended approach to learning by offering both online and face-to-face career change courses; powerful peer support networks and specialist advice. Into 2024 and beyond we will be building more pathways, growing our global network and showing emergency responders of all ranks and backgrounds that positive change really is possible.

Tom Wheelhouse

Founder, Leadership Coach and Change Manager

I left the police in 2013 with no plan, no sense of identity and no skills (or so I thought). Since then I have worked in business development and management consulting in global firms, specialising in people-driven change.

In 2015, I founded Mightify to show first responders what they are truly capable of, and have had the privilege of helping thousands worldwide achieve the careers and lifestyles they previously talked themselves out of. I am a qualified and experienced coach, delivering accredited resettlement programmes to police forces nationwide.

I also deliver leadership and talent development programmes for Ivy House. To find out more about their programmes, visit: https://www.ivyhouse.co.uk/corporate-programmes/leadership-development/ 

My policing background and skill set was the springboard to every subsequent chapter and adventure – showing others how to unlock and present this is something I’m passionate about.

Joe Crocker

CV Writer, Coach and Tech Support

7 years ago, I left policing for a tech startup.

I had 9 years service, 2 kids, a big mortgage and less free cash then when I was a student!

I had skills I didn't feel the job recognised, and I didn't want to leave those skills behind for a 'promotion' to custody, main office or traffic.

I doubled my salary in 2 years and have since worked as a hiring manager for 3 businesses, on over 15 different roles, and reviewed 100s of CVs.
