Owen's style of work is engaging, full of enthusiasm and passionate. During 2009 we worked together on a project, where he delivered the motivation and time management elements, and his ability to fully connect with the participants has been a key success factor, resulting in plans to repeat this exciting project twice during 2010. His ability to motivate, illuminate and activate the participants to examine and change their way of being is outstanding.Claire Murphy CR Programmes Manager, Pfizer
I am the Pilot of the first ever Irish Women's bobsleigh team to qualify for an Olympic Games, Earlier in my season I spoke with Owen to help me get over a traumatic crash I had experienced the previous season, I was worried that my Olympic qualification would be in Jeopardy unless I could get past this mental block. Only a few minutes into our chat I was making progress and had learned skills to enable me overcome my fear and anxiety on a particular track. I knew I had to practice what he advised or I would not be able to race and gain the vital points necessary to qualify for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic games. Looking back now I'm so thankful for his help.Aoife Hoey Irish Olympic Athlete
