GreenWell Events

GreenWell Events develops and manages programmes of nature and wellbeing events outside in the natural environment. The aims of these events are to improve the health and wellbeing of people around Northern Ireland encouraging them to be more active and to get outside. Research has indicated a very positive psychological and physiological effect to being in the natural environment especially now as we are coming out of lockdown.

He has been responsible for the successful leadership of many Local Authority services, private businesses and voluntary organisations and, amongst other projects, is now using his considerable years experience to assist Charities, Community and Voluntary organisations through his consultancy GreenWell events.
