We cover G = Growth from a Personal & Business perspective, as it is a fascinating and compelling topic to share stories and experiences, and T = Technology, something that is everywhere and is firmly here to stay…asking the questions about what does it mean, is it for good, how do we harness it and ensure it helps our future.

So, in the G&T Sessions Podcast, we are speaking directly to ourselves, when we were younger, not as wise as we are today, how could we know how transformative that Technology would affect the world …. And know how getting your personal growth and mindset in order, is a key building block and enabler to any organisation or business idea you want to scale.

We're going to try to take you, the audience, on a journey through the stories and lessons of gifted and talented people who have written their own personal growth stories, dealt with amazing peaks and character building valleys, but have learned and carved their own path to making their own history and future.

#Gifted #Talented.

Given Tech now integrates into so many areas of our life and many people see this as their new path for opportunity, we will also discuss Tech with our guests who are growing, advising, supporting, coaching and innovating in and around technology and so the founders, co-founders, entrepreneurs, CEO’s, leadership teams of tomorrow will know how to realise their dreams, find and unleash their own ideas to become unicorns, build new markets, new businesses & disrupt the world for the greater good.

Tom Morley, Rockstar Activator Following his time in the music business with the 80s band Scritti Politti Tom has developed a truly artistic way of living where every experience leads him to the humorous uncovering of some universal truth. He turns his disasters and successes into stand-up comedy for conference audiences. 40 years onstage, first behind a drum kit then being the multi-talented front man for whole troupes of performers earned him the name ‘The Rockstar Activator’. Instant Teamwork is both Tom’s speciality and the name of his company. Teambuilding, be it drumming or harmony singing is all very energising on the day but how do you make that bonded feeling sustainable. Tom has devoted the last 20 years to answering that question and he turns up with a customised set of tools he is passionate about sharing. Fascinated by the creative process Tom is passionate about sharing what he’s learned about art, rhythm and harmony over the past 65 years. From playing kit drums with the Art School band Scritti Politti in his 20s, through songwriting in his 30s, to studying psychology and facilitation in his 40s, Tom eventually set up Instant Teamwork International in his 50s. Equally at home challenging a global board of directors as he is when inspiring a local charity group, Tom has an experienced and humorous approach, which puts people at ease immediately. His down-to-earth belief that people can achieve great things when they overcome their natural fears, has empowered thousands of individuals to work together effectively. Tom’s style, developed working with teams as small as five to groups of five thousand during the last decade, ignites people’s curiosity. His own enjoyment of the creative process is an irresistible invitation for us to leave our comfort zones for a while and join him on his journey. And, of course, we expand our horizons on the way. This was a very entertaining episode and hope you enjoy listening and watching on your favourite platform. Enjoy!

He is a fitness enthusiast, and after struggling with his own fitness for over a decade due to lack of knowledge and proper guidance, has dedicated his time and efforts to create businesses designed to positively impact people’s health and fitness, and help them create long-term sustainable lifestyle solutions. He is always challenging the status quo, in breaking barriers, and blasting through ceilings we set for our own personal growth. “Everyone has the right and obligation to be fit, strong and healthy” Ketan says, – so, at AKRO and now at Alpha Coach, he has created a platform to allow everyone to achieve their health goals.He also walks the talk in terms of taking action and execution, and takes his own fitness very seriously.

Guy Rigby, The Entrepreneurs' Adviser & Rower, The Entrepreneur Ship with David Murray We are so pleased to release today's episode of The G&T Sessions Podcast show with Guy Rigby. Vision. Ambition. Enthusiasm and Determination. These are some of the qualities Guy most admires. As an entrepreneurial adviser with a financial background and a restless spirit, he has been lucky to spend almost all his life advising founders and management teams of growing, SME businesses. It’s been a stimulating journey, encompassing many exciting success stories. In terms of experience, he has been the senior partner of two accountancy firms, a managing director, a finance director, a sales and marketing director, a charity trustee, an executor, a chairman and a non-executive director. In 2010 he decided to write it all down. Guy’s book, “From Vision to Exit – The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Building and Selling a Business” received wide critical acclaim, becoming one of Amazon’s best-selling business books when it was published in 2011. He now split my time between chairing and promoting the Entrepreneurial Services Group at Smith & Williamson, and running his own advisory and mentoring business, “The Entrepreneurs’ Adviser”. In two days from today, 10h December 2021, Guy and David Murray will attempt to break the record for the oldest pair to row across the Atlantic. With a combined age of 124, they will compete in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, to make a successful East/West crossing in under 60 days. The Entrepreneur Ship purpose is to promote entrepreneurship in all its aspects and to raise funds for a charity focusing on supporting young and aspiring entrepreneurs who are or who are seeking to create sustainable, socially responsible businesses which support both local and global communities. Most Atlantic crossings are made by teams of four and take about 30-40 days. Rowing as a pair, however will make life far more challenging, increasing each individual's responsibilities and substantially lengthening the crossing. The Entrepreneur Ship will depart from La Gomera (an island just to the west of Tenerife) in December 2021. The destination will be Nelson's Dockyard in Antigua, arriving sometime in February 2022. Personally, I took a great inspiration from this episode with Guy & David’s mission and have kindly been allowed to sponsor Lily, The Entrepreneur Ship. The Unleash Your Unicorn brand is proudly on the bow of Lily, #UnleashYourUnicorn is a community launching in Q1 2022 for Tech Founders who need help to take their amazing ideas to impact. If you are interested in joining the community see the link below. Guy like myself, firmly and passionately believes in innovation & entrepreneurship and I can relate wholeheartedly to Guy’s motto – "If it isn't broken, break it" – there's always a better way. Such a great episode and an amazing mission for Guy and David. Gods speed and safe passage and wish you all the best with the row to the finish in Antigua.
