Ray is an accomplished coach and mentor from the UK who has run several businesses. He is a past recipient of the prestigious Daily Telegraph “Business Leader of the Year” Award.
In the nineties, Ray pioneered the development of the “Heart and Soul Management® Framework” in the UK – a key component of his strategy to launch and grow a successful professional services business. Adopted by a number of leading financial services organisations, it enabled management teams to create working environments with high standards of excellence to enhance the experience of customers, staff, employers, and shareholders.
In 2005, Ray left the corporate world for a six month sabbatical, which didn’t go according to plan! A series of random, unforeseen events meant he spent fourteen years living out of a backpack in an amazing journey of re-invention. During that time, he developed his own mindfulness and wisdom practice and absorbed the wisdom held in ancient teachings. The entire journey has been chronicled in his book, Life Without A Tie, which was published in 2022.
He joined the executive coaching team at the Asian Leadership Institute in 2015. His compassionate and challenging approach enables clients to explore and meet the challenges of being a truly inspirational leader. He helps people apply mindfulness teachings learned from the masters in a modern context, integrating it with their business knowledge so that their work offers greater purpose, meaning, and happiness. He is always exploring new ways to encourage the development of greater emotional intelligence and self-awareness, for himself and others.
He is a frequent traveller and loves mountain trekking and long distance running. Other interests and hobbies include writing, film-making, music, acting, soccer, and motorcycling. He also set up a foundation to raise funds for worthy projects. He has raised over $50,000USD so far.
