Mandela Day - Pay it Forward Coaching

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela died peacefully in the company of his family on 5th December. Nelson Mandela has greatly influenced my life and career and I feel moved to take this opportunity to celebrate his legacy. You might have already heard of Mandela Day?

Mandela Day

The overarching objective of Mandela Day is to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better, and in doing so build a global movement for good.

  • Participation can take any shape you like in “service to one’s fellow human”
  • Mr Mandela gave 67 years of his life fighting for social justice and human rights. The Mandela Day campaign asks that individuals, groups and corporates use just 67 minutes of their time on 18 July, and every day thereafter, to give back. 
  • No matter how small the action, the aim is to change the world for the better, just as Mr Mandela has.

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — Nelson Mandela

I have participated since the first Mandela Day in 2000 and I have gradually increased the time I spend 'giving back', but I can do more.

Complimentary Coaching Offer

For each of the 31 days in January 2014 I am offering a free telephone or skype coaching session of 67 minutes starting at 6pm GMT.

The coaching session is completely free (normally a trial coaching session costs £80 + VAT), there will be no sales-pitch, no obligation and no hidden agenda, it's purely about offering my skills to benefit others, you call me so it'll cost you the price of a phone call (or free if you use skype).

I hope that those who take up this offer share my understanding of what coaching is - download FAQ here - and have an idea how a single coaching session could help them. I am happy to coach you on any topic (that's legal!), just pick something we can reasonably tackle in 67 minutes (i.e. World Peace will take a bit longer...!).

Yes Please!

To claim this offer (one session per person) please send an email to with the subject "Mandela Day Offer" answering ALL of the following questions

  1. What date in January 2014 do you want to have a coaching session at 6pm GMT?


  1. What will you do to spend 67 minutes giving back to someone else?
  2. Briefly how do you think a coaching session would help you? 

The dates will be taken on a first come first served basis so offer a couple of dates to increase your chances of getting a free date. I will individually email you to confirm the date of your coaching session - I am doing this manually so please bear with me, emails will be read in the order of arrival, please do not send multiple emails.

Let's make the world a better place 67 minutes at a time :-)

best wishes
