I’m Dinah Liversidge. Speaker, Mentor, Coach, Writer, Celebrant, No-Box-Thinker. I am also a wife (30 years and counting), mother, artist, singer (in my woodland and the shower), conversation-lover, chocolate appreciator, car enthusiast and survivor.
I live with my husband, John, and our pets, Branston, Pickle and Lilly, in a Welsh Long-house in a small woodland in Myddfai in West Wales. The Brecon Beacons National Park is just meters from our gate. We found our amazing home in December 2014 and are now working at bringing the love back to this beautiful place.
John makes charcoal in the woods, and I work from our sitting room (and garden when the Welsh weather permits) coaching and mentoring, writing, and preparing presentations. I also work as an Independent Celebrant, working with families when someone they love dies, to prepare and deliver a service of celebration and helping the family to move on.
Dinah Liversidge helps people go from “thinking outside the box”, to “no-box thinking”. Her business and life experiences bring a “what if anything is possible?” perspective to challenging the way we live our lives and un-limit our potential. Using her no-box-thinking approach has allowed Dinah to re-invent her life after massive change and to create a life and a future she was told were not on her horizon.
Her background in Corporate started at SmithKline Beecham as a PA to the Marketing Manager for Anti-infectives, which was to lead to 14 amazing years of opportunity, travel and event management.
Her total belief that “there is no box” have allowed Dinah to overcome several, serious, health challenges along her way, not least a road accident which resulted in eleven years in a wheelchair, and a series of heart-attacks in 2014. Today, walking again, and gardening on her Welsh smallholding, she is living proof of the power of thinking yourself out of a box.
Since 2004, Dinah and her husband John, have been entrepreneurs, setting up and running three successful businesses in diverse sectors, they now live a ‘portfolio lifestyle’ pursuing several of their passions. During this time, Dinah joined the networking organisation, BNI (Business Networking International) and was appointed Managing Area Director for their London North and West region.
Dinah lives in Carmarthenshire in South-West Wales with her husband, John. She offers Mentoring and Coaching to those dealing with massive change and now works as a Celebrant in the local community.
She is passionate about people, conversations, fast cars and chocolate.
