I want my book to be an incubator of change, for making a difference in society, creating shared value in society, enabling many future generations to succeed and creating a compounding force for good.
A significant proportion of the proceeds of my book are being invested into a system which recycles the benefit, time and time again, becoming an evergreen agent for positive change in the communities it serves.
My investments celebrate, embrace and symbolise the global momentum towards entrepreneurship and support those prepared to take a risk and seize an opportunity to create their own personal economy which will, in turn, create shared value in their local communities.

After much deliberation, I decided to support a variety of entrepreneurs throughout the world through microfinance, in particular through the terrific work undertaken by Lendwithcare. www.lendwithcare.org
In 2011 I competed in the Marathon Des Sables in the Moroccan Sahara desert. Referred to as the toughest footrace in the world, this event taught me so much about the hidden reserve tank of courage, resourcefulness, passion and commitment that we all possess. I was grateful and proud to support Mencap for the great work they do and thankful to my sponsors helping raise £14,000 towards this great cause. www.mencap.co.uk
As Viktor Frankl noted:
“He who has a 'why' to live for, can bear almost any 'how'."
