MY JOURNEY My journey travels from nearly being born a cockney, to nearly going to Wells Cathedral Choir School (but my voice broke), ending up with a degree in Geology and Music, qualifying as a teacher, and at the age of 24 being a Deputy Headmaster. I did not want to follow in my Grandfathers footsteps as a Headmaster for more than 25 years in the same School. Instead I studied Economics, Politics and Sociology as a Post graduate, ending up working in the Logistics arena. At Bath I met my Wife so it was certainly worth going back to do my Post graduate for that alone. Now pushing forward to influence companies, communities and individuals with revelation, vision, inspiration and energy. MY STORY People who have influenced me are; Mr O'Connor - My English teacher from Secondary School. - He showed me learning is a life long experience Evelyn Summers an inspirational artist, who took her life back to the drawing board, and then made a difference. My Dad - Who showed me it was worth being in it for the long haul Peter Bendo my best friend in PNG - who showed me why we need to live today to the full. John Fuidge who reminded me that - People matter Wynford Evans my singing teacher. He encourages me to show my passion Bethany our daughter Who showed us destiny can be fulfilled in a moment Redundancy from a job I loved - to embrace fulfillment in developing my X factor MY MILESTONES Finding that the stone was rolled away for me Ditchingham, Norfolk, 1980 Writing a new Mathematics curriculum in PNG in 1984 Being radically (miraculously) healed of Malaria in 1986 Setting (post 2000) a number of high level business strategies with senior level directors of tier 1 companies that are still being rolled out today. Seeing many others changed in Uganda in 2001 and 2002, in body mind and spirit. A fight with cancer in 2002 in which I reassessed my priorities. Redundancy in 2002 which has caused me to focus on my factor X, and do what I enjoy doing. Mexico in 2005 where I have seen much joy in the face of need, it challenges my levels of contentment. The loss of our daughter Bethany (December 2005). A sharp change of direction is teaching me to follow my dreams (April 2009) An embracing of variety that means portfolio is possible!
