I am the founder and host of OFFLINE, a private, by invitation network designed to encourage fresh ways of looking at the world and the art of sharing. I host dinners privately and on behalf of corporates that straddle all ages and all backgrounds. There is neither any agenda nor any outcome to an OFFLINE gathering, just a bunch of smart, engaging people who enjoy mixing business with pleasure. Over the course of the evening, attendees eat and drink, laugh and think, while they build relationships and I share stories that reflect the OFFLINE philosophy.
I don't much care where people come from, their status or their wealth, but I care very much that they are givers. A curiosity and interest in others is a hugely underrated quality and the only criteria I ask of guests is that they participate with an open mind and a generosity of spirit. Who knows where the conversation may take you?! Aside from OFFLINE, I write, present, connect, moderate, read and talk, although not necessarily all at the same time. I also have a background in the art world which challenges you to look, observe and question the conventional view.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
