As Neil continued along his path towards self-knowledge and alignment, his professional career was also taking off as a civil law Barrister. He ran both his legal career and healing business concurrently until one Friday afternoon in 2008. That day he was crossing the car park of the Inner Temple when one of his friends from Bar School remarked that Neil was becoming a ‘rising star of the civil bar’. In that moment, Neil knew it was time to leave. In his mind, it suddenly became clear that his star was rising in the wrong field. Within a matter of months, he had left his legal career behind forever.
From 2009-2012 Neil dedicated himself full-time to spiritual inquiry under the guidance of his endlessly supportive and wise teacher who he had recently met in Vancouver. With more time and space for inquiry, Neil’s connection to the spiritual dimension was maturing and he came to see he was being called to a new path. A much deeper calling was taking shape within Neil and his sensitivities, abilities, and the depths of his listening were increasing.
By 2012 Neil was being called back to the professions, but this time as a Speaker and Coach. It was that summer that The Conscious Professional was born, now a thriving corporate consultancy through which Neil offers trainings and keynotes internationally.
With a love of public speaking, Neil also went on to become an acclaimed inspirational speaker at events and seminars across the world. Drawing on his unique professional background and his compelling spiritual journey, Neil’s insights and wisdom leave audiences energised and inspired to take meaningful steps in their own lives.
Neil loves nothing more than sharing his passion for mindfulness and transformation with the world and continues to do so through his teaching, writing, speaking, and art.
And so it goes.
