‘Imagine a man coming in. He’s friendly. Joyful. Expressive. Very present to what you want to discuss with him and happy to be of service. His enthusiasm is contagious, his playfulness apparent, his creativity endless. At the same time, he is practical and to the point. He knows his stuff. There’s also something you can’t quite put your finger on.
A kind of innocence that puts you at ease. An openness that is integer and authentic. And suddenly he triggers something in your consciousness and your life will never be the same again. Take a deep breath, relax and allow that smile to emerge on your face…
