In my Keynotes Talks, I use the power of unforgettable stories and images to leave simple actionable messages.
The stories come from building multiple successful business ventures and from sailing twice around the world. The first time on the worlds toughest yacht race. The second time with my wife and 3 children aged 9, 7 and 2.
