“Don’t skip breakfast, cut down on coffee, go for a walk…” we are all familiar with the healthy messages, but how realistic are they to implement?

At our July breakfast we heard for the first time from ‘The Motivational Dude’ aka Ross Anderson. Ross is a psychologist and wellbeing expert who specialises in human optimisation. He helps people enhance their mind and body thus elevating their health, happiness and performance.

Much to the audience’s delight Ross opened with some early morning participation in the form of hugging, making screaming noises and seated leg and arm exercises! This was to demonstrate an ‘engagement process’ which includes:

  • Being in the moment
  • Energising mind and body

Result: We all changed our ‘state of mind’ in a matter of minutes; allowing us to think differently and more positively, thus creating more fruitful paths.

Ross was pulling from his own life experiences  - a very colourful but difficult background while growing up, one that almost lead to a prison sentence. He was keen to equip us with some tools to help us tune in to our mind and body. These are tools that have helped Ross transform his life from gangs and drug addiction to University graduate and now life coach.

Ross uses science and wisdom based systems that are clinically proven to reduce stress, promote positive emotion and improve long term health outcomes. He maintains his academic roots working from one-to-one through to organisations such as:

  • Nike
  • Regus
  • STV
  • Cisco

Since making the decision to follow a more purposeful path, Ross has helped to optimise the lives of over 13,000 people through his speaking, training events and TedX Talks. His ambition is to help 100,000 people realise more of themselves by 2020.

In his own words “Once I got my sh*t together I felt it was my duty to help others to overcome their own challenges in realising their potential.”

It was a fascinating and honest presentation, which also touched on improved diet and nutrition. We were asked to think about what we eat and what foods trigger a negative reaction in our bodies.

Everbody enjoyed the presentation and many were keen to follow up with Ross. His contact details are:
