Since then he has been exploring how to support healthy living (and dying) systems in family, community, and business contexts.

Some Launch Pod Love

POLLY BARSBY,
FOUNDER @ VERDEKIN

“It is like working with a caring friend who can both hold space for your insecurities.. whilst providing you with a comfortable steel toecap boot with which to kick your ass and move you into exciting unchartered lands of possibility!”

MEL RODRIGUES,
FOUNDER @ GRITTY TALENT TV

“Launch Pod gave me the spring in my step that I needed to think big about my business idea, and interweave my passion for inclusion and social change throughout the business model. It was a creative, intimate and exploratory process, made all the richer by being part of a cohort who I now count as good friends. Ultimately the experiences helped me grow and move on from my safe, regular job to take up space as an award-winning Createch entrepreneur.”

TESSA HOLMES,
BIZ DEV @ CANOPY & STARS

"Very soon after joining The Launch Pod, I would realise its purpose went way beyond traditional life or business coaching. The journey was something much deeper. It gave space to clear away the external distractions and take a deeper look at myself, it helped me explore what would truly make me content and instead of trying to fit into existing boxes, it gave me the confidence to forge my own pathway. The unique and creativity qualities of each session allowed me to gain a new perspective met with curiosity and I looked forward to what each meet-up would bring. Being in a group had rich value, my peers were wonderful people. I’ve been inspired watching their journey’s and feel grateful to have made lifelong connections....."

MIKE CHATZIAPOSTOLOU,
FOUNDER @ SPHERYX

"The launch pod connected me with a great group of like-minded individuals, and under the wing of Jamie's heartfelt and creative approach to self-enquiry, we supported each other to bring our hopes and dreams for a meaningful and fulfilling future to life.

 

I came into the process without a specific project or plan but with a few ideas, themes and scribbled notes.  I left with new skills, an extended professional network the self-support I needed to kick-start the next phase of my career.  It's a fantastic programme for those who want help with budding ideas, navigating a change in life direction or living into their values."

The Launch Pod principles:

  1. A world in crisis needs us to operate with new levels of courage;

  2. Finding courage and motivation is supported by a collective process;

  3. We’re bold in our actions when connected to our purpose;

  4. All of life deserves our care, the strength to do this starts with self-care;

  5. Our capacity for change starts within, and works outwards;

  6. Our journey is determined by who we are being, as much as by what we are doing; 

  7. Reinventing ourselves requires us to develop new beliefs;

  8. The best adventures are co-created;

  9. We are all each other’s teachers;
