For over two decades Ian has been a globally effective, tireless, and sought-after social mindfulness and health coaching specialist. His time-tested and proven programs have re-ignited peoples lives and brought a new sense of purpose, whilst generating impressive wellness returns for global brand businesses.

His preceding careers included 18-years as a British Army Royal Signals Warrant Officer, and Cisco EMEA Training Program Manager. It was during this latter period that he began to notice a clear link between
prolonged stress, and the onset of burnout. He realised that in high pressure environments, we should actively seek selfcare strategies to balance out our increasing performance demands.

His ongoing practice and global initiatives have afforded him the privilege of providing empowering self-care solutions for people all over the world. Ian has held audience with contemplative leaders including Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) founder Jon Kabat-Zinn.
