I am a man of diverse experience…From a Chinese father and Swiss & Scottish mother I grew up in Hong Kong, spent time on an island in Scotland and then lived north of London for 15 years. Travel has been my way of life, and I have been to and worked in locations such as France, New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Extensive personal studies and life experience in over 30 countries have lead me to uncover fundamental skills and tools in health, communication and confidence which have provided me with incredible opportunities and living wealth.
During my earlier career, I worked for organisations such as Accenture, Coca Cola and Barclays Bank until I realised that solely that kind of work didn’t satisfy my desire to connect and contribute. Giving it all up I moved to New Zealand and then Australia for a 2 ½ year kombi excursion to have fun and find myself. This provided the adventures and debt you can probably imagine. I returned to the UK inspired by some learnings from Anthony Robbins, but not clear on the next step.
At this point life wasn’t all roses so two years later and after listening to a motivational CD one cold miserable evening in a leaky rainy flat in Manchester, I made a decision to move to Australia on a whim and a prayer. With $65,000 debt, no job or visa to work, no family around me and almost no friends, I moved to Brisbane, Australia. Incidentally I had never been there before and it was chosen as it was the biggest city, in my favourite climate, in my favourite country.
Over the following years I paid off nearly $100,000 in debt and worked for some international organisations in their training departments such as Rio Tinto, Boeing, BHP Billiton and Queensland Government.
I am a trained master coach and have completed three levels of NLP training and I write materials for international personal development speakers in the realms of personality and health. Wide-ranging adult learning with Dr John Demartini, have exposed me to the greatest thinkers of all time such as Plato, Newton and Einstein and theories ranging from atomic molecules, the human cell, emotion, social engineering right up to intergalactic travel and white holes.
My purpose is to help inspire people to fulfill their purposes. I achieve this through teaching and sharing core knowledge about communication, direction and self-worth using practical technology, the written and spoken word as well as experiential activities.
“What I like to think I bring to the table is the ability to mix the ingredients of experience, with the spices of observation, to deliver a hotpot of knowledge which can be delicately savoured or wolfed down whole.”
