Vinay is an inspiring coach and speaker who’s passionate about helping people achieve all they can from life. He’s studied personal development and achievement for over a decade as a hobby and has qualified as a Master Practitioner and Certified Trainer of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Sports Hypnotist, Performance Coach, and Certified Corporate Speaker.
He’s worked in some successful brands such as Egg, O2, Prudential, RBS, and Audi. Vinay knows a thing or two about facing the challenges of life and coming out intact on the other side. He lost his mother tragically on his wedding day, and also lost twin babies. He’s overcome financial struggles, and come back from failed businesses, and yet he continues to provide inspiration and hope to others through his work.
Vinay was born in Harrow, Middlesex in the 70’s, after his father had moved from Kenya in the 60’s to create a better life for his family.
Even as a youngster, Vinay stood out as someone who didn’t just follow. He took part in the Arts when many of his peer group were heading down a traditional educational path to become doctors, dentists or lawyers.
In 1998, Vinay joined Egg, a new bank that was set to revolutionize the UK financial services industry. Its culture was refreshing and it was here that he first discovered the language of possibility and the whole notion of human potential that would eventually reshape his outlook on the world forever.
In July 2000, he married his wonderful wife Jem and tragically lost his mother to a lethal strain of meningitis. With his world shattered, Vinay decided he would play out the rest of his life to the full and began to tread the pathway he does today.
In 2006, Vinay left the corporate world and decided to build OpenBlue to fulfil his passion for helping others unleash their potential.
