Co-Founder and Managing Director – After completing a masters in Mathematics, and then working as a management consultant in central London, Ollie took a career break to spend time exploring mindfulness and meditation combined with volunteer work. Initially, the career break was planned to be one year, but somehow this turned into 9 years! Looking for a way to put into practice the values of patience, compassion, and working for the benefit of others, Ollie spent a lot of this time doing live-in care work. This allowed Ollie to continue to study and practice of mindfulness. One of the key aspects of the teachings he studied is to work for the benefit of others and act with compassion for those in need.
