Sarah McCrum – Take one human being. Add a Cambridge University education and 10 years in BBC Radio. Mix in 22 years of training with Chinese Masters. Then combine with a lot of common sense, diverse life experiences and a passion for inspiring leaders. The result is Sarah McCrum and she’s different to anything you’ve experienced before. 


Sue Fitzmaurice – My motivation to coach, write, blog and facebook, is to present ideas about the world and issues and events within it, and to assist where I can in inspiring others to be all they can be and to reveal their purpose in this world. I hope to provide some nourishment for the heart, mind and soul.


Karen Maezen Miller – I’m a wife and mother as well as a Zen Buddhist priest at the Hazy Moon Zen Center Los Angeles, California. I write about spirituality in everyday life. My latest book is Paradise in Plain Sight: Lessons from a Zen Garden (New World Library, May 2014). I also wrote  Hand Wash Cold: Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life (New World Library, 2010) and Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood (Shambhala, 2006)
