Insightful and thought provoking

I’ve just listened to my first episode of Nigel’s Five of My Life and my mind has gently expanded to view new perspectives. He respectfully ‘dances’ in conversation with his guest and welcomes and makes space for their answers without judgement. Such a wonderful set of questions that are engaging and spark curiosity. Keep doing what you’re doing Nigel as you’re clearly doing good in the world your way!
