I am a husband in love and the father of three wonderful daughters. Apart from spending time with my family, there are two things I love above all.
I love helping people take a step back. I love the magic that happens when we take time for ourselves... pause... and reflect on what truly matters to us. Taking a step back enables us to re-energize and re-align. Taking a step back is the first step of any evolution in life. It is the first step towards sustainable fulfillment. I believe so much in the value of taking a step back that I called my company "a step back".
The other thing I love is being in wild nature. Nature grounds me as much as it energizes me. Nature is where I find the deepest peace, and the greatest excitement. Wadis and deserts inspire me. To the point that I go camping once a week, often alone, to reconnect with myself and our environment.
So it is only natural that the experience we crafted specifically for the Octoos community combines these two things I love. And as a coach, I believe that this approach will help people reconnect with themselves... and build the life they love.
In my previous life, I lived in Asia for 15 years and developed an expertise in digital transformation, digital strategy and omnichannel retail. Over time, I grew a passion for purpose-led transformations. In 2019, I decided to dedicate my time to help organizations in their sustainable development and individuals in their personal development.
Willing to reflect on your life, or an aspect of it, with a skilled professional? Interested in personal development? Looking for a more fulfilled life? Wondering what is your next step? Taking a step back is always the first step. Doing it under the stars is always nicer... and often more efficient.
TAKE A STEP BACK UNDER THE STARS WITH ALEX, TO PAUSE AND REFLECT.
This is a private experience for 1 male or 2 people (life or business partners). You will be taken 1 hour away from Dubai, in the middle of nature, for 14 hours (overnight). Far away from the city life and lights, you will be able to take a step back and reconnect with your deeper self.
We will meet at 6:00pm in Al Quoz, Dubai, where you will be able to safely leave your car for the night. We will have a 1 hour drive to get to know each other, and for you to relax and get prepared for our deeper discussion.
When we arrive at our campsite, you will have 15 minutes to connect with the surrounding wild and inspiring nature, while I set up our camp fire and beds.
We will then have a deep conversation around the campfire for 3 hours, during which I will help you progress in your desired direction.
Afterwards it will be time to sleep directly under the stars. In the coldest months of the year, a tent will be available.
We will wake up with the sun, around 6.00am, and enjoy a simple breakfast made of fruits.
We will then make our way back to Dubai on off-road tracks, so you can smoothly ease back into civilization and your daily routine.
I will have plenty of water for you, but will let you organize your own dinner. Bring comfortable clothes for the evening and night under the stars, as well as your toothbrush. I will bring a portable shower in case you want to refresh.
We will be back to your car around 8.30am, knowing that the time is flexible based on your requirements.
