At heart, I’m an introvert, I like to get things done quietly but outstandingly well and the following should help you to better understand my character and style to see if I'm the kind of person you'd like to work with.
I’m the kind of person who would rather:
Originally from humble beginnings and a fairly tough background, I invested in my education and developed the skills to work in, consult, coach and lead a wide range of businesses: from cutting edge high tech startups that created industry firsts, mid-size traditional businesses that went on to be sold to market leaders and as a senior advertising executive with S&P 500 and FTSE 100 global communication companies, where I led teams to grow revenues from zero to nearly £20m pa and leading multi-million-pound culture change programmes. Consequently, being singled out for recognition with 'Distinguished Achievement' and CEO ‘Outstanding Contribution to Business’ awards!
This kind of recognition is always welcome but the thrill for me has always been in helping individuals and teams lift their spirits, confidence, self-belief, collaboration skills and their performance, to realise more of their collective potential to achieve things they previously thought weren't possible. My files are full of such stories and it's these sincere 'thank you messages' that give me the most satisfaction.
This has been made possible because throughout my career, I've invested extensively in the study of management psychology and more recently, the insights coming from neuroscience research, not just to influence my thinking for personal benefit but also, to learn how to effectively and ethically influence the thinking habits of others for mutual benefit, whether they be clients, people working above, alongside or under my leadership.
What I help people with now is what I've used - micro-strategies that include proven frameworks, practical workable principles, innovative tools and interventions for the real world today, backed with the latest scientific research, things that anyone can put into practice to make a positive difference in their careers, teams, businesses and in fact, in other aspects of their lives too.
From my experience over the last 20+ years, I know without question that success doesn't have to be as stressful as some people make it, where tension and excessive pressure are the norm and rarely is true success about the money or power. Those people who achieve the highest respect and admiration from the people they lead or work alongside are the ones who show that success can be achieved in a more mindful, calm, considered, respectful and wise way.
What you really want to know though is 'can I really help you achieve what you want personally with less effort, hassle, pressure, stress and in less time than traditional methods' i.e. no BS or false promises?
Whatever level people reach in life, I believe that everyone can be and do more, and often with less effort or stress so why not get in touch, use the link below for a no-obligation exploratory conversation with me in the first instance, and all in total confidence of course.
Here, you will get a feel for why I love to develop executives and entrepreneurs, i.e. by developing you, the people you lead will develop and the combined power of your influence has the potential to produce awesome collective impacts. You'll see my style, which doesn't suit everyone I know but the truth is, it's helped many individuals and teams to smash it in business and in life.
Even if you're not sure how to break with conventional thinking and conventional behaviours that get conventional (average) results you can learn how to be different with my coaching and mentoring, good different. It take no extra effort but can enable you to achieve the results you should be achieving and here's the thing, you are capable of more, better, stand out results with the right help.
You'll hear about just one of the many tools I use and this one enables you to train your brain to significantly influence your own thinking and emotions far more effectively across areas like mental fitness & wellbeing, self-confidence, work related stress, physical fitness, weight management and financial success. And, learn how to easily build your own templates too.
You may be one of those who attended my keynote speech 'The Neuroscience of Mind Hacks' and my Strong Minds book signing at the ExCel London but even if not, this should give you a feel for the reception of people who came up to the stage afterwards. Many people also enrolled in my Personal Leadership Mastery online course within 24 hours of this event.
