The world today revolves around a culture that is in constant pursuit of continual happiness, setting ourselves goals and finding new challenges. Whether that’s as simple as defining a new year’s resolution, exploring self-care and wellbeing or tackling the feeling of incompleteness in our lives - the demands we place on our current and future selves is set at the ultimate high.

This has left us to question, are the goals we set really what we want or what we are told to want? And will they really complete that feeling of happiness that we are seeking?

But fear not, keep calm and breathe deeply.

TEDxCoventGarden wants to draw on the ideas and experiences of those who have tackled these exact questions head on. Join us on Sunday, January 27th 2019 for a unique day filled with talks, mindful exercises, food and workshops with our inspiring and energising speakers who will guide us on a journey of self-discovery. During the day we will draw on their experiences to help us identify our true authentic self and gain ideas and tools to elevate our lives.

My passion for discovering the potential within those that surround me is what has paved my career in leadership & development over the past 10 years. It’s not uncommon for me to have a minimum of 2 books and a podcast on the go to satisfy my desire of self-growth. However, nothing brings me more joy than being inspired by people in the world who are fearless and risk living a life of pure joy and fulfilment.

As a result of his cancer diagnosis in 2006 he set out three goals: to become closer to friends and family, finish climbing the Seven Summits (including Everest), and build an affordable, plant-based food business.
