    Becoming The 0.1%

    Becoming The 0.1%

    Gareth Timmins is a former Royal Marines Commando turned Author and emerging Behavioural/Cognitive Scientist. During recruit training in 2005/06, he documented his experiences by keeping a never-before captured diary of elite military training. In recent years, he has utilised his psychological grounding to produce and integrate thirty-four lessons that people can employ to achieve cutting-edge, performance thinking.

    While in training, widely considered to be amongst the most demanding in the world, he was awarded the Shooting Medal and later went on to represent the Royal Marines Shooting Team. He was also awarded the Operation Telic Medal for his team’s contributions in Iraq, during the capture of Royal Navy and Royal Marines personnel by the Iranians, during 2007.

    As a fully trained Royal Marine, Gareth passed a short, but intense selection/training course to join Fleet Standby Rifle Troop (FSRT); a specialist arm of the Royal Marines that conducts non-compliant boarding’s in both military and security operations, as well as offensive operations for the Royal Navy worldwide. As a result, he deployed on two occasions to the Northern Arabian Gulf (Iraq) and once to the Gulf of Aden/Somali Basin (Somalia) to engage in counter piracy.

    Upon leaving the Royal Marines, Gareth deployed to Somalia as private Maritime Security Contractor (Team Leader) during the upsurge in pirate attacks and hijackings in 2011, and was subsequently involved in one of the biggest pirate attacks of that year. He subsequently deployed to Egypt during the Arab Spring and in the midst of the Egyptian revolution to conduct intelligence and security operations throughout the region.

    Feel Your Heart Come Alive

    Feel Your Heart Come Alive

    Delighted to welcome Singer-Songwriter Paul Alexander-Low as my guest on Episode 023 of the Feeling Versonic Podcast 'Feel Your Heart Come Alive'.

    Paul started playing the guitar at the age of 16 and immediately felt the urge to write his own music which he did throughout his adult education, and subsequent work journey progressing up the corporate ladder, and raising a family.  Alongside his music, Paul's other passion is martial arts at which he has been an avid competitor, and achieved success in winning 2 National Championships. 

    So, at the age of 48 years young - is it too late to embark on a solo music career and fulfil his early dreams and ambitions?  Paul feels like this is his time, and following the release of debut single 'Feel Your Heart Come Alive'... a song Paul describes as being "About someone who is full of passion, love, hopes and dreams but holds themselves back through a fear of rejection or judgement",  in August 2020 I think he has had a solid and promising start.  

    Paul's vocal style has been compared to Don Henley and Bryan Adams so expectation, and the bar has already been set pretty high!  

    This episode also includes an exclusive play of 'Carry On' a moving, meaningful tribute to Joss Spurway, who was tragically killed in a light airplane crash in Australia in 2017.

Top podcast

There aren’t that many times in a week where I choose to spend an hour listening to one show but Feeling Versonic is exceptional... Friendly, interesting, chatty, and with great music but take that as a given.. what this podcast really delivers is insight.! I go away knowing more about songwriters and about the business side of music. What’s more it inspires me... to write, to listen and to improve, and I enjoy every minute... Jon done!!
