Strategies for personal and professional success.


Edmond motivates and inspires audiences from all industries and backgrounds by applying cutting edge research, unexpected strategies, east-west thinking, and real-world applications to today's most demanding professional, personal and inter-personal challenges.

But Edmond does more than simply share motivational stories and information.

He teaches audiences to be fearless. Not in the sense of taking unnecessary risks or acting out of character, but fearless in its truest sense; to focus on goals clearly, strategize effectively, communicate persuasively and act decisively when results are important and outcomes matter.

Psychotherapy, Teaching, Consulting, Coaching - many approaches to the goal

Turns out that resilient people (and families, organisations, and countries) actually think about - and react to - challenges differently than the less resilient.
