Peter Russell studied mathematics and theoretical physics at Cambridge University (in the UK), and was a student of Stephen Hawking. He then became increasingly fascinated by the mysteries of the human mind and so changed to experimental psychology. Pursuing this interest, he traveled to India to study meditation and eastern philosophy. In the 1970s, he pioneered the introduction of human potential seminars and taught the top management at companies such as Apple, IBM, American Express and Shell. In 1982 he coined the term “Global Brain” with his 1980s bestselling book in which he predicted the Internet and the impact it would have. He is the author of 7 books, appears frequently on radio and television and gives keynote speeches at conferences all around the globe. He has spent a lifetime researching the untapped potentials of the human mind, and last but not the least he was described by Watkins Magazine as the 21st  Most  Spiritually  Influential  Living  Person in the world.

Often children were forced to walk up to 8 hours a day to get to the closest school, once they got there, exhausted, the standardised curriculum seemed irrelevant to their indigenous lives and so he set up Amantani to combat these two problems with a focus on respect for their local customs and culture. Their work has received great media attention and Fred was recently invited to give a TED Talk all about the Art of Giving.

In 1999 Sue’s life hit rock bottom; she was desperately unhappy, her marriage had broken down, she had over a quarter of a million pounds worth of debt and faced the repossession of her family home. She had 3 young children to bring up all alone with no income, no idea where her next penny would come from and just £10 left in her purse. However, Sue was not going to accept this was her life. She started researching all about the power of our thoughts and the subconscious mind and learnt the fundamental principle that we get more of what we focus on.

She is an extremely successful businesswoman, recently appearing on Channel 4’s popular TV series ‘The Secret Millionaire’.
