Private Equity Investor turned Clean Energy Entrepreneur
I started the Career Clarity Cohort having just left a 15-year career in private equity and trying to figure out what was next. My decision-making process is research and analysis-driven. Huw is likeminded and has done all the groundwork and applied his critical lens to the body of knowledge related to self-exploration. He takes the potentially paralyzing task of finding purpose and breaks it down to actionable, bite-sized daily exercises of structured introspection which compound into profound insight and, ultimately, a framework to help guide your allocation of time and attention. I finished the program with focus and the confidence to say no to pursuits that would distract me from realizing my vision.
"I was struggling with confusion and this circle of doubt and indecision. Now, I'm much more energized. If you talk to my wife, I'm almost a different person energetically."
I had been seeing a therapist for nine months before this: every week, an hour a week for nine months. I didn't like going to work. I wasn't even really going to work. I work remotely a lot of the time and would find other things to do instead of work because I really didn't care about what I was doing or where we were going. Now with my new role and my new partners, if I could work eight days a week I would. I'm hungry. I feel like I have purpose and I know where I'm going.
"[Through the Core Gift interview] we basically nailed down my entire essence to one line - and I think about that line every time I’m getting ready to meet with a client... and through my day to day that invigorates me and keeps me going."

I had just survived Tech layoffs (gratefully) and was suffering from a combination of survivor’s guilt, missing my friends/colleagues who were no longer at our company, and feeling like I was falling short of making the large-scale positive impact I am capable of. I knew I needed a change. I saw that Huw was speaking at an event and felt it in my spirit that I had to attend. The event had incredible energy. Something magical was in the air. Huw’s heartening words captivated my attention, drawing me in closer as he shared his story with the audience – a journey of applaudable achievements, compounding career misery, hope, self-discovery, clarity. And then the missing piece: Gifts. I had explored my core values with my life coach and heard of visioning, but the idea of all of us having gifts to give was new, exciting, & refreshing to me. I smiled with anticipation. This was the path I had been searching for. I joined Huw’s 6-week career transformation program, one of a group of impressive like-minded people ready for change. The assignments we completed and discussed together were fun & challenging, requiring deep inner work, patience with ourselves, and time. The results were well worth the investment. Throughout the 6 weeks I saw myself become happier as I expressed gratitude & appreciation and learned how to put myself first. I rediscovered who I am through refining my core values and establishing a clear vision. I made new friends. And through having my core gift revealed, I became tuned in to the path I need to make the impact my heart desires. Thank you, Huw, for such an incredible blessing.

Huw is both easy to talk to openly AND has a rare quality in that he seems to elevate the other person's thinking. In other words, I was able to think clearly when talking with Huw vs. with others (or alone). Many people have the opposite effect, like when I spoke to Ray [Dalio] in person for the first time - I was able to make a few coherent statements but not think on my feet at all. With Huw, it's like many of the virtues Bridgewater preaches but it worked so much better with psychological safety and knowing Huw was interested in helping me rather than determining my deficiencies.
I'm the owner of a marketing consultancy nowadays but I came from decades in corporate. While I was never in "corporate hell", there were several years when I was lost and trying to find my purpose. And even now, as an entrepreneur that loves my work, I'm always looking for ways to improve and better myself.
I attended Huw's webinar for the "living well" goal. I especially enjoyed his exercise on finding our lighthouse values. Defining them has helped me have more purpose and a set of values to make better decisions in my work and personal life.
Huw's style of coaching is authentic and open. He shares experiences from his life to illustrate points. He has an incredibly well-defined methodology so my analytical brain loves the steps and processes. At the same time, he truly cares and has a big heart. I feel his genuine goal of wanting to help others live well.
I highly recommend Huw's webinar and no matter what journey or phase you are in your career and personal life, you will benefit from Huw's program.
