The IDEA Mindset is a way of thinking that will lead you towards a deeply fulfilling working life. In 6 weeks you will work through a journey that will help you to find your Identity and Direction for a future of Engagement and Authenticity – IDEA!

I’m also the host of The Unlock Moment podcast, a long-form interview series digging into incredible moments of clarity when my interviewees figured out the right path ahead.

About me

A doctor, professional ballroom dancer, senior retail executive, coach, author and podcaster, I’ve plenty of lived experience of personal growth and career change. I developed my IDEA Mindset philosophy to help people figure out what they want from life and work, and how to get it. Today my personal mission is to make a difference, which I accomplish in four ways:

  1. My executive coaching work with senior executives, entrepreneurs, artists and performers principally in the US, UK and Europe. I’m an ICF-accredited coach, a member of the Forbes Coaches Council, a Gallup-certified strengths coach and a graduate of the Henley Business School coaching programme
  2. My book, ‘The IDEA Mindset’, which enables you to access the thinking and exercises behind my IDEA philosophy and find clarity of thought, clarity of decision and clarity of action about the path ahead
  3. My podcast, ‘The Unlock Moment’, where I’m meeting and learning about people who have accomplished great things or brought about significant change in their life. We find out what inspired them, how they got through the hard times and what they learned along the way that they can share with you
  4. Reaching out to new audiences through speaking engagements, online workshops, podcast appearances and articles in Forbes, the Sunday Times, the Telegraph and many others

Working in a coaching partnership

  • Coaching is a partnership of equals, we both have to want to be there.  Let’s get time in the diary to meet each other and to understand your situation, goals and timeline.  What has brought you to coaching and why is it important for you right now?
