Biographical Information

"Originally trained in drama and theatre, Ros spent her early career in a range of community development roles. This culminated in 3 years as CEO of the Marylebone Centre Trust - an action research project integrating complementary medicine into NHS primary health care provision. " [1]

"Ros worked in community development work for 17 years and in 1987 became Chief Executive of a charitable trust dedicated to exploring the added value of complementary medicine and counselling as a core part of primary health care provision. From 1992 she worked for the Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum, developing its pioneering partnership work ever since. In 1996 Ros co-founded Trigonos - a social business in North Wales that seeks to integrate social, economic and environmental solutions by providing opportunities for personal and professional development to a range of individuals and groups." [1]

"In 1992, I started working for the International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF) and I was responsible for leading its pioneering partnership work until the end of 2011." [2]

"My lifelong interest in health and wellbeing has taken many directions including:

"Completing a training in Optimum Nutrition (whoever would have thought I would become fascinated by the bio-chemistry of the citric acid cycle?!)

"Studying and teaching T’ai Chi Ch’uan for more than 12 years – getting up most mornings at 6am (this has become a habit even though the daily T’ai Chi practice stopped somewhere around 1985!). This took me on two study trips to Thailand to study with a Chinese T’ai Chi Master (known as Lao Tsu – or ‘revered teacher’). Tai’Chi accounts, I am sure, for my physical fitness, mental alertness and capacity to contain my energy and pace myself – as I advance into older age. It feels good to be introducing some T’ai Chi exercises into my teaching on the Advanced Practice courses for the Partnership Brokers Association.

"Most recently I have taken up Indian Head Massage a form of massage of the back, shoulders, arms, neck, head and face that is practiced all over India. It is based on Aurvedic principles and on the notion of the chakras – energy centres within the body that, when they are in harmony, mean one is balanced in terms of one’s physical, mental and emotional state. I really like the idea of being able to make people well (or at least, feel better) and this is a simple but effective intervention to be able to offer." [3]
