His varied earlier careers encompassing theology, education and business adds breadth and depth
to his unique understanding of human behaviour. His ideas are challenging, sometimes controversial,
yet they are always presented in the safety of understanding and compassion. It is indicative of
the ethos he creates that he is in constant demand for lectures, workshops, seminars, conferences
from a very wide range of audiences that cross different social strata, different age groups and
different social sectors. He is amusing and entertaining in his presentations without diluting
the meaning and depth of the messages he wishes to convey. He writes and speaks in a language that
is easy and accessible.
