Biography

I was born in the UK but have lived in The Netherlands for fifteen years. I am the founder of MindWorx a training company that has mindfulness at the core of all it's leadership programs.

I believe that learning does not stop, ever. I am passionate about continued learning, so working in the executive education field is my dream job.  I have helped design, implement and analyse some amazing training programs mainly in the Financial services industry  but also for Corporates, Consultants and Legals. I have worked with top 100 companies to help drive change management and align culture with strategy. I believe that the SIY program is the missing link that I had been searching for.

Emotional intelligence and Mindfulness, especially the ways it is taught at SIY has a profound influence on the way we see the world and importantly the way we treat others.

I personaly have meditated for a long time, first attending a workshop on Transendental Meditation way back in the 1980's. Meditation has always been important to me, I know I work better when I am in a regular practice.

Outside of work I am happiest in nature walking my dogs or simply being with family or friends. I am a vocal supporter against homlessness and environmental issues.

My moto to live by at the moment is: Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind, the second is to be kind and the third is to be kind. (Henry James)
