A career in international business starting as an Electronics Engineering graduate, designing the first surround sound loudspeakers. Moved into sales, in many international roles within different industries. Held many senior roles including MD and CEO with major global companies and SME’s – wide breadth of experience. Coaching business leaders. Author of “Nuclear Powered Resilience”.Curious by nature, became fascinated with how the mind works on a mission to create a series of mind “user manuals” to help people manage their thoughts and emotions to become more productive, creative and happier with life. Everything we ever did or will do started with a thought!

Nuclear Powered Resilience

Imagine having unstoppable inner strength, combined with a feeling of internal warmth, that nurtures and reassures, providing a deep cushion of adaptability. How would that feel? What could you achieve and enjoy with that level of resilience?I had the gift of unconditional love as a child, giving my brother and I remarkable inner strength and a deep sense of self-worth. Through 10 years of research of how the mind works, I realised I could share this gift with anyone, tailor made for them in one Golden Habit. In February 2020, during Covid a friend in need reached out. I shared my technique. Within 24 hours they were transformed telling me “You saved me” and pleading with me to share this with others. For over 60 years they had the hand of a past trauma on their shoulders, holding them back and occasionally flooring them. Whether you have experienced Unconditional Love or not in your life, this technique will either fill a gap or strengthen what you have. You will also learn how to easily embed this as a 5-minute habit so the benefit keeps growing stronger, long after the initial step change from when you first learnt the technique.
