Our Story

Life is precious. The time is now. We're in it together.

We have been privileged to work in diverse and inspiring contexts, including with Great Britain Olympic teams, global organisations, incredible teachers committed to inspiring the next generation and small charities with big dreams.  But too often, we've heard the comment:

"I wish I'd learnt this earlier".

This led us on a journey to make world-class mindset development more accessible, with a particular focus on supporting young people to get a head start in their psychological development. Moonshot is about sharing the life-changing insights we have gained from mentors, teachers and students over the years, in a meaningful and sustainable way.

 

Our ambition is to give as many people as possible the psychological tools they need to make the most of this one, precious life.  It is a privilege to walk alongside you towards your full potential.

We are brilliantly unique, just like you.
