The son of Jamaican immigrants, Derek was born in Birmingham in 1965. He grew up happily there with his six brothers and sisters, until the age of 13, when his mother died. This plunged him into the world of a stutterer.
After school and various menial jobs, Derek went into financial services as a trainee. Throughout his 20’s and 30’s, far from being successful Derek had great financial challenges and debt. His situation became dire, and at one point his family home was moments away from being repossessed by the bank. He was working long hours that kept him away from his family.
By the end of 2003, in a moment of despair, Derek discovered a way to live his life differently. Out of this came a unique approach that changed everything, irrevocably. Over the next four years he turned his life and business around, made his first million and people began to ask him how he did it.
Derek is the author of The 10 Second Philosophy® published by Hay House. Using the power of TrueSelf and the utilization of Standards instead of goals to achieve happiness and success, Derek is invited to speak internationally and to coach and advise others.
