Well, I've worn many hats in my time - ranging from being a professional DJ, Customer Service Coach through to IT Director for an International Media Company - but the one hat I've worn consistantly through that time - is indeed that of a Coach - and I've been lucky to work with Athletes and Sports People through to International level - a number of them Medalling at Major International Championships.
Now let's be honest here - the world of IT has decided it has increasingly become a place for the younger man (not my decision - theirs) - and so I looked to change direction a number of years ago - and with my love of Coaching and a wealth of experience in that area, there was only one decision really!
I trained as an NLP Practitioner (my kids call it Jedi Mind Tricks ;o) threw in the towel on my business life and have never looked back. I have to say that right now is the most fulfilling time in my life and the old "should have done it years before" certainly applies.
Oh, BTW - I still manage to keep my hand in on the business side of things by working with companies on developing their staff mindset.
