Here are some of the Happy clients George Anderson has had in the past
"When George presented his wellbeing workshop I must admit that initially I was sceptical. I understood the importance of wellbeing but my life was too hectic and I didn’t have the time to make the changes. But 8 weeks later I’ve lost 18lbs, killed my sugar habit, my glucose levels & blood pressure have normalised & my wife seems to be constantly amused by the number of vegetables I'm eating. George’s non-evangelist approach and ‘progress not perfection’ philosophy helped me start making changes and maintain the momentum. Having experienced the difference first hand it’s no surprise that we’ve invited him back in present his workshop to more members of the team!”
Phil Brennan, Senior Director Dell EMC

“George has run a ‘How to thrive’ session for my work team. After a big shift from office to working from home routine, while going through some major changes and dealing with a pandemic, the team needed something to help them not only to survive but thrive in life. George delivered just that and his personal style made the session a fun one, full of personal anecdotes and real life examples. It was a huge success and we have all walked away feeling more energised and equipped with tools and techniques to help us take the knowledge and really implement in our work as well as personal lives. Everyone found it hugely beneficial and since then, we have referred to How to Thrive session on many occasions and used it to help us find a solution and sometimes explain why we feel the way we feel. George is an amazing coach and a fountain of knowledge, I would highlight recommend him”

A really engaging session that gave me tangible ways to improve my wellbeing"
