About the authors
A dynamic husband-and-wife team, Andrew and Gaia Grant are the founders and directors of the consultancy Tirian International. Focusing on organisational innovation, they design and deliver highly creative educational experiences for leaders and teams. Over more than 25 years and in more than 30 countries they have worked at all levels — from the classroom to the boardroom, from tribal education to corporate coaching. Tirian’s seminars and experiential learning programs are now presented under licence in a number of countries around the world. Andrew is a highly sought after and engaging keynote speaker for senior executives from Fortune 500 companies, and Gaia is the author of a number of books and other resources, including A Patch of Paradise and The Rhythm of Life. They have also co-authored educational resources directed at all levels, including the ‘Schools Total Health Program’, which has helped improve the lives of more than 25 million children in developing countries worldwide. When not travelling, Andrew and Gaia live with their two children between Sydney and Bali.
