Dancing with life, trusting intuition and and co-creating with spirit are my fundamental qualities. These ways of being have built a strong foundation in how we can all operate in business. Purpose has always been my driving force!

Two worlds collide with dynamic effect

On one hand I am a proud hippie, mystic, self-confessed tree-hugger and radical eco-warrior, also a thought-leader media entrepreneur, speaker and renowned online retail businessman.

In 2007 on Channel 4's TV show 'Dumped' my eyes were opened to the vast devastation human lifestyle waste was having on the planet. It was a realisation that was to lead to a lifetime’s work protecting the Earth.

My first magazine GREEN was published with National Geographic from 2008, which then moved to The Guardian in 2010, evolving into the My Green Pod magazine from 2013. Co-produced with my wife Katie Hill, it is now the world’s biggest ethical lifestyle magazine and My Green Pod leads the field in ethical shopping. I also founded in 2010 and still run one of the World's most respected sustainability and climate awards, P.E.A. (People Environment Achievement) Awards.

Speaking

My role as a speaker.

My Journey from living on a landfill for Channel 4's TV documentary 'Dumped', to launching the World's biggest ethical lifestyle magazine National Geographic Green is a story of finding purpose, a blueprint for living in service to something higher than myself. If everyone focused on what they love doing and is brilliant at, and then dedicated this skill to fixing the biggest issue of humanities time, the climate crisis, we would all be living our purpose doing what we love for a higher cause. My ability to support and facilitate transformational shifts in leaders is a unique gift, helping to co-create an energetic shift in consciousness which can guide people to realign with their spiritual and purposeful selves and values, the parts everyone has but nobody is truly living.

Consulting
Action creates change.

Giving back .

I've learnt a lot over my 15 years being a pioneer in sustainable business, restorative retail and ethical living. Now seen as a thought leader, it is a privilege to be on many boards as an executive director or non executive director. Helping organisations leap frog into a sustainable climate and co-creating real values that will surpass this current economic time gets me up in the morning. We can truly create a better future, but only if we are prepared to move into purpose with no compromise.

Spirited Business and Leadership events.

Training with a female Shaman shaped an idea to build a community of business leaders. Leaders open to reconnecting and working with the true essence of 'Spirit & the Sacred' is perhaps the only way to evolve through this impending climate crisis. Having worked with over 100 leaders now it's clear that what 'WE' teach really works. Come and join an event and be a part of the 'Spirited Business & Leadership' community.

Selected publications

300 Years of Leadership & Innovation

My wife, Katie, and I were selected as sustainability leaders for the 300 Years of Leadership and Innovation publication.

300 Years of Leadership and Innovation is a beautifully presented, fully illustrated hardback book, authored by a team of distinguished academics and award-winning writers. Produced in partnership by the History of Parliament Trust – one of the most respected and authoritative research projects in British history – and publisher St James’s House, the publication celebrates leadership in Britain and beyond over the past 300 years.

Launched to coincide with the 300th anniversary of the appointment of Britain’s first prime minister, Robert Walpole, in 1721, and in the year of Her Majesty The Queen’s 95th birthday, the book celebrates leadership across the full spectrum of British society: from Parliament and Crown to captains of industry and those pushing the boundaries of innovation.
