I help people apply mindfulness teachings with their business knowledge so their work offers greater purpose.

In his corporate life 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 enables management teams to create working environments with high standards of excellence to enhance the experience of customers, staff, employers and shareholders.

Leaving the corporate world Ray spent the last ten years in Asia, exploring mindfulness and the wisdom held in ancient teachings. He joined the executive coaching team at the Asian Leadership Institute where his compassionate and challenging approach enables clients to explore and meet the challenges of being a truly inspiring 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 such as the Schools of Hope in Northern Thailand. He has raised over $13,000USD so far, towards building a school for underprivileged children.
