I am a global expert and pioneer in workplace health, wellbeing and performance with PhD and Master’s degree in design thinking and virtual teams. A seasoned business school professor with focus on Executive Education and experience in Europe (IESE, IMD, IE) and China (CEIBS) I am currently an Honorary Professor at the Glasgow School of Art. I have written several books including Chief Wellbeing Officer and Sustaining Executive Performance and my new book, The Daily Reset, celebrates a 20 year career in wellbeing. I am a former elite multi-sport athlete and Duathlon Champion (Triathlon for bad swimmers!) having trained with Tour de France cyclists and Olympic track athletes.
Collaborating with McKinsey since 2017 I take a highly practical, non-threatening approach to health and wellbeing, using my own vulnerability as a means for people to consider their own potential for change. Within the context of positive leadership and culture I take people on a journey from leading self to leading others and from the what to the how of sustainable behaviour change. I love getting into deep nature, and generally hanging out with my family, both indoors and out. I married my childhood sweetheart and we live in Barcelona with our young son and Old English Sheepdog.
