I was born in October 1960 within an inner-city part of Nottingham, England. As an only child, I was influenced in my formative years by the unswerving love of my mother and grandmother – my parents split up when I was only three.
Despite my humble existence, I was happy – until the age of eight. Then the arrival of a violent stepfather triggered a stark polarization of darkness and light over four decades.
An alcohol addiction from a very early age – triggered by the violence I was experiencing – ensured my world was in constant turmoil. Academic achievement and having three beautiful kids significantly challenged the darkness.
It was during the decade of concentrated education that I became conscious of my personal development journey. A Degree in Education was then followed by a Masters Degree in Customer Service and Quality Management, the latter strongly influenced by eminent practitioners such as Covey, Deming, and Peters.
I now use my extremely diverse life experiences to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals and communities – globally. As the founder of the PaulLoweHEARTS brand, I’m totally committed to HEARTS:
