Over the years he has also brought the latest research-backed insights from Positive Psychology, leadership, and high-performance teamwork to a wide range of clients including business schools, the military, police services, resource companies, and financial institutions and has delivered large scale Positive Psychology based events to 1000s of school and corporate staff.
