I have been extremely fortunate in life. Alongside having a loving family life and various rewarding charitable and personal interests, I have been blessed by forty years of working, the great majority of it with clear purpose. I have had the privilege to work alongside extraordinary leaders and other likeminded individuals, with shared values and a belief that together, we can contribute positively to the world.
As a British Army Officer, campaigner, entrepreneur, advocate of responsible business and champion of ethical purpose, I have had the opportunity to work on extraordinary projects across more than twenty countries, covering all manner of agendas.
Through this experience I was able to identify my purpose to:
‘Help people maximize their potential – for good'.
My various campaigns, professional work with businesses, philanthropists and NGOs, as well as my books, speeches and articles, are all aligned to deliver on that purpose and I wish you well in finding your own purposeful life.
