Following on from the hugely popular Alison Pothier, the ‘Lifestyle Guy’, motivational speaker and lifestyle expert, Garth Delikan is today’s ‘Folks for a World that Works’ interviewee. Garth offers a characteristically to-the-point message in our growing collection of inspiring mini-interviews with someone in or around the OurNet community.
Some of his career highlights to date include appearing on BBC’s Boomtown series, Sky News and The Chrissy B Show. He’s also featured in the London Evening Standard and helped a journalist transform from overweight to fit in 8 weeks. He wants to help you achieve the lifestyle you’ve always wanted and feel 20 years younger in only 20 minutes a day!
Fully qualified in coaching, neuro-linguistic programming and hypnotherapy, Garth’s previous roles include being a successful personal trainer, kickboxing instructor and nutritionist.
His workshops on Confident Life Skills and Safety Awareness have been implemented across a wide spectrum of organisations including Astra Zeneca, Diageo, BP, Sony, Anglo American, BAE Systems and ICI, to name a few.
He’s a keynote speaker and frequently communicates on subjects such as Personal Safety for Women, Confidence & Body Language, Lifestyle, Stress Management and Wellbeing and is author of ‘The 20’s Plenty Plan’.
“I’ve always been into fitness and fully advocate that exercise can help you weather the stormiest times, giving you the energy you need to take action. I know the challenges of both ends of the spectrum, and lifestyle management has enabled me to reinvent myself and find my purpose which is helping others achieve the same,” says Garth.
OurNet: Thank you Garth for taking the time to talk to us and being one of the ‘folks for a world that works’, can you begin by telling us about yourself and your big passion?
Garth: I’m a very energetic, passionate person and love working with people and companies to help them bring out the best in themselves and the best of their staff. Touching and lighting that inner fuse of passion that everyone has but are too scared to visit sometimes!
OurNet: What would a ‘world that works’ look like to you?
Garth: The same exciting opportunities as there are now, but without the hate and anger!
OurNet: What is stopping us from creating a ‘beautiful world we all know in our hearts is possible’?
Garth: The fear of change or not being powerful enough as individuals to create that change.
