EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE MY FIRST
SMART NUTRITION PARTNERSHIP!
Let me help you hack your poor eating habits
Those of you who've already read my book will know that now aged 50s, I've easily dropped to the same weight I was in my 20s, by hacking my nutritional habits last year. Our gut and brain are connected via the gut-brain axis. So think very carefully about what you eat. Our poor eating habits are killing our gut bacteria, causing chronic inflammation around our body and brain, compromising our immune system and affecting our mental health. Take it seriously.
3 of the transformational hacks I used were:
Testing my gut microbiome (simple poop sample)
Getting a weekly fruit and veg box delivered to my home to cut down on my supermarket exposure
Customising the contents of the box to consume the right fruit and veg based on my gut microbiome test results
I'm determined to ensure that everyone can EASILY do these same steps because they can have a significant impact on your nutritional habits and your lifelong wellness.
SO, it gives me great pleasure to announce my first partnership with a regional fruit and veg delivery company!
If you live in East Kent get in touch with us. We'll explain how to do the gut microbiome test. Then we'll work with the marvellous team at 'Veg Out!' to customise your fruit and veg contents and start delivering your weekly box as soon as we have your microbiome results. We'll send you what you need to eat each week.
I hope to expand this service with partnerships in other regions soon.

FOR URBAN DEVELOPMENTS
In 2021, the holistic wellness strategy I created for London's new £5 billion urban development was announced by leading urban developer, Argent Related. This strategy harnesses music and sound to deliver a wide range of wellness benefits for those who will live, work and visit Brent Cross Town.
It will embrace music, the sounds of nature, and the sound of silence, across the 180-acre estate. This is the first time that such a detailed consideration of sound and music has been used for wellness in a large-scale urban development. I hope this approach will become the norm in developments.

My PhD research examined the lifelong impact of music from our youth. Those early memories of our school days are deep, strong and long lasting. This work led to my involvement with the NHS' first dementia village (opening 2021/22). I'm helping the NHS ensure that music and sound are at the heart of the care experience for residents of the UK's first dementia village and at hospitals. We're also exploring the use of cutting edge tech that will be used in the delivery.
Music in Society Inquiry
House of Lords
In 2019, I joined forces with Lord Tim Clement-Jones and Sound Diplomacy to spearhead an inquiry at the House of Lords, called 'Music in Society'. The objective - to remind decision makers of the fact that music is 'entertaining', but is much more than 'entertainment'. It delivers a much greater range of benefits throughout life when we let it. I firmly believe that music is the most under-recognised, under-valued asset in the world. Most of my work of the past 30 years has focused on championing this fact.
I enjoy regularly presenting my work at conferences worldwide.

A few years ago, I wrote and recorded a song called 'Seaside Death' to draw attention to a proposed licensing policy that would have had detrimental effects on my local town's evening economy businesses, music venues and youth population.
The song now lives on because I'm pleased to announce that it's been chosen as the soundtrack of the forthcoming crime comedy movie Dan Hawk Psychic Detective, out in 2021.
