He was born and raised in Ireland but, in his twenties, moved to Australia where he was to develop a passionate and enduring interest in the psycho-spiritual world. Following a successful career in business, Bill experienced a major life crisis in his early 40’s when, as he describes it, “Not only did I discover I was climbing the wrong ladder, but the ladder itself was leaning against the wrong wall!” Bill returned to Ireland where he was to represent one of the world’s largest personal development training organizations as regional director for N. Ireland.
