Daryl’s Story:
A Hard Road to Mental Fitness

My career began in 2001 in a global top 10 FTSE corporate, and from 2012 I used my skills as a leader and business developer to build my own internationally acclaimed company.

With career ambition, high pressured work and a love for being a hands on father to my three young children meant life was always a little too busy. But I was resilient and could ‘handle it’.

However, when an unexpected trauma in my personal life occurred in 2016, it was too much.

It threw me into a major cycle of burnout, anxiety and depression. For a long while it felt like I was permanently stuck in a dark, never ending tunnel. The toughest thing I’ve faced.

My road to recovery completed in 2018, to my happiest self. With a love for helping others, I felt inspired to use my story for good to help other people build successful businesses and careers while developing a healthy work/life balance and avoiding burnout with mental wellbeing in the workplace.

Inspiring and facilitating others to improve their life happiness, grow their business and achieve career success excites me every day. I’m doing what I love, and what’s important to me – being a hands on father and achieving career successes I am proud of through sharing my experience of improving mental fitness with smart strategy and productivity in the workplace.

I achieve this by combining my knowledge with my own unique methodologies and tools to enable easy action for my clients. In keynote talks, training workshops and advisory assignments, I help organisations, leaders and entrepreneurs increase their productivity, prevent burnout, improve their mental fitness and achieve a happier life-work balance.

I’ve recovered from serious burnout to achieve a much happier life, sensible working hours and greater business successes.

My own techniques allow me to spend less time in the office with more quality time for my family and friends, and to enjoy doing the other things I love; seeing live music, watching movies, exploring the world, healthy eating and keeping fit. I’ve just purchased a handmade 3-string electric guitar aim to learn some tunes over the coming months as a new hobby.

My experience has shown me that even the most successful people and companies need a helping hand to get ahead and stay there to fulfil their potential in life and at work. Much your favourite sport teams and individual athletes hire top experts to help them continually break new records and add more trophies to their name.

Let’s discuss how I can best support you, your event or your company with professional speaking, training or other engagement.
