Van Henry is in the business of empowerment and will help you to realize your potential and maximize your abilities in order to achieve success. Our services are aimed at everyone who wants excellence in their lives, be that in the corporate arena or in their personal life. The truth is that we all have the potential to achieve the desired outcome, but due to external pressures in the workplace, or at home, we struggle to create the space and time required to make the necessary changes without help, having a coach to support you makes this so much easier.
Van Henry was born on the Island of Jamaica and immigrated to England at the age of 11years where he remained and completed his education. On leaving school he had an interest in engineering and decided that he wanted to be trained only by the best and applied for an apprenticeship with one of the worlds leading manufacturers of aero engines, Rolls Royce LTD, It was his first job application ever, and he was accepted. With this mindset of achieving excellence Van did very well at Rolls but wanted more. After completing his training and two years of service Van decided to travel the world working as a freelance consultant within the aviation industry. Because of his thirst for learning he interacted with people of various cultural backgrounds and of different social standings.
Van soon became known as the person to talk to if someone had a little problem or wanted to bounce a few ideas around. Van travelled for thirty four years not just working but using every opportunity to learn about people wherever he went. With this, his skills in dealing with people grew and his spiritual knowledge developed. Van also learned to speak German and Swedish and soon found himself in positions of leadership, organising, planning and managing various projects, working in Europe, Scandinavia, Africa, and America. He also managed his own business but still there was something missing. In 2004 Van was asked to manage a project in South Africa for a Swedish company and as usual he started to interact with people and because of his findings he was inspired to start coaching.
Van returned to Europe at the end of his contracted period and decided to make coaching his full time occupation and found a reputable company with which he trained and acquired his accreditation as a coach, he was also invited to join their gold coaching programme which gave him new insights to the business world of coaching. To add to this Van also studied NLP (Neuro linguistic Programming) and became a certified practitioner.
Mr. Henry found his true vocation in life and although not totally dissatisfied with his previous occupation he made the change and now help to stimulate human potential, helping individuals and organisations to achieve their goals and uncover their true potential as he did his own…
“I get fulfilment from motivating people”, helping to improve the human condition, teaching people to achieve far greater things than they ever imagined. Teaching those who have limiting beliefs about interacting socially and intellectually with others of different backgrounds be that racial, religious or social, that this can be done while still maintaining ones own identity and cultural heritage. Van joined a program run by world renowned motivational speaker Les Brown and became one of his platinum speakers inspiring people to realise that they have greatness within and it’s not what you’ve done but what you can do.
