Tony Burgess, Director of Academy of High Achievers Ltd

As an experienced specialist in personal and professional development, most of Tony's time is now spent designing, co-ordinating and delivering performance-enhancing and life-enriching programmes for people who are hungry for more success and fulfilment in their lives.

Tony has trained and coached business leaders, teams within organisations, entrepreneurs, educators, students, sports people and members of the public to help them to tap into and release the full potential of their personal resources, preparing them to attain whatever outcomes they set out to achieve and much more besides.

Tony has a degree in psychology and for more than two decades he has specialised in helping people to thrive in their endeavours by teaching them powerful 'mental and emotional fitness' techniques and offering them super-effective connection and communication tools.

Tony is a specialist in utilising a powerful blend of applied psychology and he often draws on his expertise in the areas of NLP, DiSC® and Havening Techniques® in his work. He often trains and coaches other people-development professionals (coaches, trainers, therapists, consultants, medical practitioners ...) and loves the fact that this starts many positive waves that carry benefits far out into the world.

Tony's core principles to guide the way he lives his life are 'living fully alive', 'making a positive difference', 'loving kindness' and 'inspired action' and by congruent example he constantly strives to inspire others to 'shine' brighter.

...Tony and Julie deliver on stage seamlessly. As partners in business and in life, day by day they are living and breathing their passion for helping people achieve at the highest level and it adds a whole different dimension to a keynote (or conference workshop) to have the two of them enthusiastically and professionally delivering together in such natural and free-flowing way. In terms of connection with an audience, the male-female combination on stage helps ensure that the message gets through easily and effectively to all who are watching and listening.
