A Master Coach and Mentor

Stars of Science
In the Middle East Neil is also known as the on-screen Success Coach for Stars of Science, a pan Arab reality TV show (MBC).
The show was designed to stimulate innovation and invention amongst young Arabs and sees them compete for a $500,000 prize.
It is funded by the Qatar Foundation and has a strong social conscience.
Outside of the training and coaching world, Neil is perhaps best known as the founder and Chief-Executive (1999-2008) of innovative youth charity K-Generation. Founded with a mission to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the youth sector, K-Generation (or Kikass as it was affectionately known) fast made a name for itself by using guerrilla and viral marketing techniques to breathe life into complex social issues. Kikass is still regarded by many as one of the most successful deliverers of coaching and personal development experiences to young people.
Neil has delivered projects for many top UK and international organisations and institutions, these include: Virgin, Barclays, Levis, HBOS, Lloyds TSB, SunGard, Scottish Power, Channel 4, Live Nation, ALDAR, Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance, Zain and O2 as well as the Financial Services Authority, the Home Office and COI.
