About the keep calm guy

Bill Mann is a leading expert on overcoming personal resistance to change. He is a best selling published author, keynote speaker, and qualified executive coach and mentor.

Bill had an extensive career in Financial Services and IT before traumatic changes forced him to re-build his life.  A survivor of the London 7/7 bombings and subsequently a widower with a young family, Bill developed the techniques and strategies to overcome the shock, anger, and resistance. He learnt how to manage his emotions and his thinking to overcome his losses, embrace the opportunities, and move forward.

He now uses his considerable talents to show organisations how to lead change with high levels of emotional intelligence, and show individuals how to face it with resilience and an open mind.

His personal story is told in his first book: How to Keep Calm and Carry On.  This is a semi-autobiographical tool box for dealing with change.
