He is convinced that learning through laughter is a great recipe for change. He has coached executives, governments, sportspeople, media personalities and students and recognises that our common denominator is that we all need to discover why we are here and why does that matter? His experience and knowledge of the pressures and pleasures of gaining a work-life balance have been a major contributor to this the Wellness Retreat.
