Sian Clifford

Founder, Still Space

Hello hello! I'm Sian Clifford. Utterly overwhelmed, delighted and excited to have been shortlisted for the Hay House and Psychologies 'New Wise Voice' competition! If you enjoy my content I would be so super grateful for your votes - just click the 'VOTE UP' button on any (or all if you're feeling particularly generous!) of my posts. You can also follow me to keep up to date with all my latest blogs. I am the founder of Still Space, dedicated to connecting people to their best, most authentic and creative selves through meditation and the art of doing nothing! I am also an actor, writer and producer. I am deeply passionate about finding new ways to be my best self, because I believe if you want to change the world that's where you've got to start! I think humans are amazing, more powerful and kinder than we could ever truly comprehend. I believe in less doing more being, but that's not always an easy balance to find. So I'm here to share my adventures along the way because I believe the most important lessons that we're here to learn, are also what we're here to teach, and the power of storytelling is one of the most incredible tools we have to connect with one another. To discover. To evolve. To heal. If you're reading this I believe you're part of a movement so big, it's going to change the face of humanity. Let's swap some tales. I LOVE pictures too, so Instagram is one of my fave hangouts. You can find me on @stillspacemeditation

OBI JAMES

Group Facilitation & Team Development, Obi James Consultancy Limited

As Founder of Obi James Consultancy Limited, I specialise in Group Facilitation & Leadership Team Development. I help leaders, teams and groups achieve better, sustainable results by transforming how they work together to ensure that they maximise their resources. I have over 10 years experience of successfully designing and delivering people, leadership and team development programmes to hundreds of business leaders and teams across large multinational organisations like Deloitte, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley and Northern Trust. My experiences taught me that when high-performing individuals come together, they often do not make high-performing teams. Competition, unhealthy conflict and lack of alignment get in the way of effective decision-making, productivity and client service. Since setting up my consultancy firm in 2010, I have further studied neuroleadership, deepening my understanding of the neuroscience of collaboration, decision making, and change management. I am a Certified Team Performance Coach and a Certified Organisational and Relationship Systems Coach through CRR Global. In 2015, I joined CRR Global's Faculty and now train leaders, HR professionals and coaches on systemic thinking and team dynamics, helping them to transform their organisational cultures. In addition to facilitating a number of team development journeys at any given time, I also work as a Quality Improvement Coach with the NHS where I am working with 5 primary care leaders and their teams by employing systematic, data-guided activities to help them create sustainable improvements in the performance of healthcare processes, whilst coping with the demands of the public and the government. My clients include various executives and teams within organisations such as the Mayor of London’s teams, Bloomberg, TSB, Barclays, Lloyds, Farfetch and Royal African Society.

Charles Thiede

CEO & Co-Founder, Zapnito

My background is in technology, professional services and digital media. I co-founded Zapnito due to a number of related observations from my time in these sectors: 1) the social web is creating a huge amount of noise 2) expertise that brands have built up over decades is being drowned out and hidden from those that need it 3) these brands are therefore losing their audience to often undeserving and unhelpful sources, and 4) people are finding it harder to access the expertise that they truly value. I therefore decided to create Zapnito, a white-label platform to help trusted brands reclaim their audiences via expert-driven knowledge networks.
