Events Speaker, Certified Trainer, Life Coach, NLP Practitioner, Property Investor & Entrepreneur
I speak at events to both small groups and large audiences in the UK and overseas I from time to time I run my own seminars. I’m a member of the Professional Speakers Association (PSA). On several occasions I have shared the main stage with business professionals such as Kevin Green, star of Channel 4’s ‘Secret Millionaire’ and I feature frequently in the press and radio.
I was born in Yorkshire and, following the separation of my parents before I was 3 years old, I was abandoned and placed in various children’s homes for many years. As a teenager, I gave up my education to get a job to help my mother who, at that time, was struggling financially. Later in life after living in Israel for 8 years, I decided to return to education as a mature student to study IT, Interpersonal Communication & Business with Bristol University. I had resolved at a very young age not allow my past to determine my future and despite the challenges I had faced early in life, my dedication, work ethic and strong morals propelled me to become the successful businessman I am today in several different avenues. I strive to practice what I preach and to be a man of my word. My Life Coaching company ‘Passion4Life Global Ltd’ was set-up in 2006.
I embrace the beauty and richness of diversity and have lived in Sierra Leone, Israel, the Faroe Islands and various parts of the UK. I also have a home in Portugal. I use my own life experiences to motivate and inspire others to achieve their potential. My talks not only reference to these experiences and why I made the choices I did, they also challenge my audiences to think of my message in terms of their lives and offers practical ideas that work for everyone. I speak from the heart, usually without a script, and my entrepreneurial background and leadership style complement my skill as a speaker, enabling me to tailor my talks to particular business needs, organisations and personnel. My principles are universal, simple and easy to put into practice which is why they work for anyone. Some of the subjects I have spoken on include, but are not limited to: Business Growth & Success, The Psychology of Success, Property Investment, How to change your Mindset, How to Get & Stay Healthy, Culture & Diversity…
Being a spiritually minded as well as a businessman, I am passionate about helping others become the very best that they can be in both their business and their personal lives. I am supportive of children and young people and I’m a regular mentor and coach for homeless and vulnerable young people in the county of Berkshire. I am a Trustee of ‘Children 1st West Berkshire‘ and I’ve decided to give 10% of my fees for speaking engagements to local children’s charities. My own charity ‘Children’s Champion’ will be operating very soon (June-July 2015).
Here are some topics I can speak on:
- Don’t Let Your Past Determine Your Future – Personal or Business
- The Value of Adversity
- Success in Business
- Facing your Fears
- The 7 Secrets of Success
- Diversity in Business
- The Power of Focus
- The Gift of TODAY
- Women in Business
- Abandonment to Success (my story)
If you are wondering whether to contact me regarding an important speaking engagement, I want to tell you that there are two main types of speakers: one type is practiced, polished and rehearsed; and one type speaks from the heart and moves the audience. I am of the latter type.
