With over thirty years experience across amateur, professional and white-collar boxing I have seen and felt first hand the life-changing benefits boxing and boxing training offers, including a sense of achievement, inclusiveness, well being, learning, team ethic, mentoring and an outlet for everyday life stress.
Warren asked me to help launch a community project working in the mental health area in 2016 alongside Patrick and although we didn’t yet have a name, In Your Corner was born. In Your Corner brings all the positive boxing attributes that are listed above but on a non-contact basis. The positive impact it has had is immense across the varied settings In Your Corner operates in whether that be within the NHS, community groups or private institutions.
It is about making champions in life.
I also believe there is scope for this project to reach out to wider areas within the community, other communities and businesses.
In my ‘other job’ I was, until recently, Sales Director for ITV Breakfast for six years and was responsible for maximising revenue across all commercial streams.
