What others say about Daryl…

“Daryl and I have known each other for years, and over that time he’s become a world-leading authority on mental fitness and workplace productivity. Those two concepts are more linked than most leaders give them credit for (too often ‘mental health’ just gets pushed to HR).

Daryl has a range of practical and accessible tools that help people achieve better balance in their work lives, add more value for their companies, and be happier and healthier as a result. Mental health is going to be a major issue in the coming years – and it’s wise to have this man on your radar. He’s a proactive, empathic and intelligent partner for organisations of all types.”

Phil Lewis, Challenging teams of people to bring the best out of each other, and achieve more than they ever imagined.

“Daryl is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is professional, responsive and goes out of his way to provide an excellent service.

Daryl has spoken at a number of our conferences and his contribution is always outstanding and receives brilliant feedback from attendees across the board. His inspirational and honest talks are a real highlight and I couldn’t recommend him enough.”
