Gary also has an interest in the challenges of learning to manage tendencies towards procrastination and has run training courses and written articles about this common issue.
He also works with teams - having two skilled coaches and trainers offers our clients a variety of approaches in dealing with team / training / coaching issues. Gary's particular interests lay in Strategic Planning and Goal Setting.
Gary has had the experience of many cultures including Asia, Ethiopia, United States and other western cultures.
