Animation of transforming logo from Global Success Academy to Quantum Orange.

We promised big transformation was afoot, and here it is…


Yep, Global Success Academy has undergone a huge renovation.

Rebirth might be a better word, because we’re doing so much more than just renovating.

Why fix what isn’t broken?

To put it bluntly (as we all know I tend to do) my 70th birthday last year triggered deep reflection about what I’m leaving behind.

Ultimately, what do I want my professional legacy to be?

(I considered the personal too, and they do overlap, but the part that will interest you most is the professional!)

I’ve been doing this long enough to have clients that are second and third generation. That is, the work we do was undertaken by several generations in the same family. It means everything to me that the impact this work makes will live on long after I’m gone.

It took a lot of soul searching, then on a beach walk with my beautiful wife Mary, I finally managed to wrestle it into the right words…

I want to make damn sure that before I retire, I go deep enough to teach you how to do this work without me. That I leave you (and the rest of the world) with a framework that supports you in discovering the wisdom within.

I’ve been teaching deeply transformational personal growth material for decades now, so creating change is not new for me. But what I wanted to do was figure out how to organise all of that transformational teaching into a framework that when applied, will reliably create a balanced, happy and successful life.

A framework that will deliver passion, power and purpose for anyone who applies it.

A framework that can unearth the hero inside everyone…

So that I’m no longer needed.

Not aiming that high was I?! 🤯

Well, I shot for the moon - and boy did we reach the stars. So without further ado, it is my great pleasure to share our new name and company mission with you.

BUT...this is not just a new name. It’s a whole new way of teaching transformational material. I’ll explain more about that new approach in a minute. For now, why Quantum Orange?


Here it is in a nutshell:


We believe that transformation actually happens in an instant, in quantum leaps that can reverberate through generations, despite us sometimes spending years getting ready for it. Since what we do is equip people to make massive, profound and permanent change, having quantum as a part of our new name fits perfectly.



We use orange to represent change, because ultimately we are behavioural change specialists. Not for surface level problems - we're experts at getting to the root cause of issues and addressing them so you can change the behaviour forever.

You can find the Quantum Orange manifesto here.


There’s plenty behind our bold new logo too.
Quantum Orange
The ‘Q’ has three rings to represent the three critically important concepts (we call them keystones) we all need to develop a deep understanding of so that we can keep them in balance - head, heart and hand.

Every aspect of our growth is connected to one of those three keystones. Together they form both the foundation that supports, and the arch that protects and connects, all personal development, growth and wisdom. It would be next to impossible to overstate how vital these keystones are to everything we do, which is why they’re part of our logo.

Suffice it to say without these three keystones working in concert, a life filled with passion, power and purpose is but a pipe dream.

The bottom of the ‘Q’ represents that path that goes within. Going deep within is how we find answers to life’s most difficult problems. The vast majority of players in the personal development field work with surface level problems - but they fail to go within to address what is driving that issue at its source. That’s our specialty - profound and permanent behaviour change created by going within and working at the root of problems.

Introspection isn’t the fastest game in the world, but if you make the commitment to it, wisdom will reliably show up. Persistently going within also turns out to be the key ingredient in creating the quantum leaps I was talking about earlier.

It’s a nod to our belief that if you stop looking externally, you can learn to find your own guidance and wisdom within, to discover the hero inside you.


We believe there are three keystones we all need to develop a deep understanding of so that we can keep them (and in turn ourselves) in balance - head, heart and hand.

Every aspect of our growth is connected to one of those three keystones. Together they form both the foundation that supports (and the arch that protects) growth, wisdom and a life filled with passion, power and purpose.

Let’s have a closer look at each concept…


For obvious reasons we started the framework with mindset - what you do with your head. Growth in this area is all about the journey from confused to clear.


The next major component of our work is heart - the healing of old wounds is a fundamental part of any move forwards. Growth in this area is all about the journey from brokenhearted to bulletproof.


The final component is what we call hand - the thing that brings most people undone is trouble with the implementation of any learning. Knowing you should go to the gym is entirely different to actually walking in and working out. Growth in this area is all about the journey from ineffective to unstoppable.

Why are those three things so important?

Because when we get all three concepts working in concert, rather than against one another, we can live with passion, power and purpose.

We can unearth the hero within and become unstoppable.

So that’s the underpinnings of our new approach for you. We’re incredibly excited about this new direction and look forward to sharing more of Quantum Orange with you.
