A survivor of a head on vehicle collision and passionate about helping people overcome their inner most fears, (especially when recovering from trauma). Doug lived to share his story and his motto is “never give up”. He loves what he does because it makes an immediate difference to people’s lives.They see possibility where once there was none.

When you look at the positive side of life instead of the negative your attitude changes. The challenges we face in our lives give us the resolve to authentically look at ourselves. We can’t do anything about yesterday, other than learn from it, we can’t do anything about tomorrow as it hasn’t arrived yet, all we can do is be creative about the NOW.

“Opportunities occur out of adversity. Adversity is a gift and we only need to look for inspiration from the Paralympics or people with disabilities that get on with life to know that it works.”

Doug’s aim is to empower people with the tools so they give it their courageous all and achieve their goals,

“What you believe you can achieve.”

If you want to inspire your team with the “never give up” attitude, we may be a good fit to make a difference to your organisation and look forward to hearing from you.
