Why I Want To Have Influence

I know life is short and I want to make the biggest contribution I can while I am here. I have always had that drive.

The Influence Expert provides a way for me to teach other people about influence while continuing to grow my own influence and ability to make an impact on the world.

Having more influence means that I can really do something about causes I care about (some of them are listed here), that I can help sate some of my natural curiosity about the world through having new and wonderful experiences and that I can hopefully make my own small mark on things, using the wonderful opportunity that being alive has given me.

Through growing my influence I’ve just had more exciting experiences than I everĀ could have imagined. I say these things not to boast but to observe how life can take you in amazing directions if you successfully grow your influence:


  • Invited to a private dinner by a Rear Admiral in Nelson’s Cabin on HMS Victory
  • Having a door held open for me by the man who arguably stopped the Cold War becoming hot
  • Becoming a Chief Executive of a national charity aged 30
  • Helping to run a voluntary teaching programme in Romania
  • Living and working full-time in three countries so far


Where has influence taken you in your life? Where will it take you? How can you use it to have a bigger impact on the world?

  1. I like your messages that being influential is just as much connected with learning other people’s motivations; establishing a good relationship and being patient as it is concerned with driving home your own agenda.

    • Thank you- and exactly- you need to think about what the other person wants. Also, you are often trying to build a relationship over time, there doesn’t need to be a ‘winner’, you can both win!
