"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.
A highly competent, knowledgeable mental health professional with a substantial range of expertise that sets him apart in his field. He delivers with passion, enthusiasm and energy.
"Michael has a unique, results-driven approach to unlocking the leader inside of you. He respectfully challenges paradigms that exist inside everyone that inhibit performance and helps you to not only identify them but manage them into strengths."
"Michael combined real-life experiences with practical lessons in a dynamic 3 hour presentation. We are all searching for joy and happiness and Michael made us focus on the choices we make and the impact on our business and personal lives. Highly recommended."
“I had the honour of watching Stef in the Olympic stadium in 2012. Her story had everyone on the edge of their seats, laughing out loud and in the next moment reaching for their tissues. Stef is a true champion who is not only an inspiration on the track but also on the stage. She brought the house down and I’d pay to watch time after time. A joy to work with and an honour to know her.”
“Listening to Paralympian and model Stef Reid describing how she had successfully adapted to becoming disabled was inspirational. Stef eloquently articulated the problems of striving to conform to the narrow stereotype of ‘normal’ and encouraged the audience to challenge the current paradigm. She emphasised the need to celebrate difference rather than view it as a reason for exclusion.”
“Stef has worked with us on numerous occasions, bringing a magic and passion to our internal and external audiences alike. Most recently she delivered a powerful keynote speech at the Future Leaders event, which brought together many of BP’s highest potential individuals from around the world. Stef possesses an extraordinary ability to engage every person in the room, sharing her perspectives in a way that is at once engaging, energizing and thought-provoking. Stef has a natural speaking talent and an ability to make us all think again about what is possible in life.”
