There are inspirational life stories and then there is Chris Thrall’s.
Zero negativity and a positive mind.
“Piers has had the biggest impact of any speaker that we have hosted in the three years since we have been running events… Super-efficient and easy to work with and organising, I wouldn’t hesitate in working with Piers again.”
“An amazing person and speaker. So popular that we ran out of headphones and space on our exhibition stand! It was an incredible sight.”
“Thank you so much for your excellent and very inspiring workshop. You delivered everything we hoped for and more. With such a diverse group as ours, it is often hard to please everyone but what you did was spot on - a perfect balance of entertainment, drama (how apt for us!), education and inspiration. The feedback that I have heard is all very positive. (You demonstrated) how to do something slightly outside of most people’s comfort zones and highlighted what can be achieved by looking at things differently.”
“Christopher was a blast of fresh air, delivering a powerful and thought-provoking workshop which not only challenged us to think in new and innovative ways, but also gave us plenty of tips and techniques to help us apply the lessons to our business and personal lives. All this, while keeping the group entranced and thoroughly entertained. One of the most effective, original and enjoyable sessions I have ever experienced.”
"Christopher rose to the challenge of providing an energetic keynote after lunch for our week of UK conferences. He met with us several weeks before our conference to craft a presentation using his magic skills that took on board our objectives and messages for the day and expressed them in an entertaining way. "The feedback from our delegates about Christopher's spot was positive and it added a fun and memorable element to a day that otherwise would have just been full of hard work. It was a pleasure working with him and we highly recommend his presentations."
“What we experienced was far more than a masterful illusion. Christopher’s session was extremely thought-provoking in a very positive way. The surprise was that he engaged the issues at both deeply philosophical and temporal levels simultaneously… I was very impressed by the way he engaged the group. He did not ‘act’ in front of us; he pulled us into a world which we created together. I have no hesitation in recommending him to other organisations.”
“Delegates were extremely pleased by the presentation as it wasn’t just about fixing professional problems that sometimes seem insurmountable, but it was about how to tap into creativity in all activities of your week to be more grounded and resourceful. Then to tap into that creative resource pool when you need to do it at work.”
Owen has a niche profile with dual medical and psychology backgrounds. He is an exceptional trainer who has a specific training style that engages, entertains and inspires. He is a highly credible and consummate professional. His training sessions leave lasting positive memories that I can fully endorse.
I’ve never been able to quieten my mind, but this book has helped me do just that! It’s packed with wisdom, time efficient techniques and rich experience that really will make a difference to your day and your life. Fantastic read that will benefit absolutely anyone who picks up the book. No matter how busy their brain is!
When it comes to mental health, I suspect that all quick-fixes are bogus so am usually a sceptic of the self-help genre. Owen O’Kane’s book is a proud exception. Ten to Zen is clearly a work written by a serious clinician. It is not about providing some sort of perfect path to inner peace, rather it is an honest, eloquent, no-nonsense set of easy-to-use strategies for anybody seeking to find a way of improving their mental and emotional well being. I thoroughly recommended it.
