Neil Burnard’s philosophy on life is to have “Passion in What You Do”. Take advantage of every opportunity and ensure that you don’t look back and have regrets. Life is all about new experiences and the more you have the richer your life can be.
Directly linked to his ‘next adventure’ attitude is his passion for travel and family. ‘Life is a journey’ is one of Neil’s core beliefs and you need to lean from past experience, both the positive and negative as well as enjoy all the new experiences that life can bring.
He also believes that the earth is so incredibly diverse and offers so many experiences. This is reflected in his travel destinations and activities, which include riding motorcycles across South Africa, Himalayas and South America, white water river rafting down the Zambezi and in Nepal. He has also travelled to India, Asia, extensively in Europe, Africa, United States of America, Australia and Canada.
He considers himself an open, honest person and genuinely cares about the people who work for him. Traditional values are important to Neil and he enjoys the closeness of his family. He likes to do good and help out others when he can.
Neil doesn’t like to be surrounded by people with negative outlooks and professionally is disappointed when people waste their talents.
A creative cook, whose culinary tastes follow his travel destinations, he enjoys foods including pasta, Indian and Asian food.
A follower of Motor sport, he especially likes MotoGP and follows that across several countries when he can. He enjoys fitness, swimming and visiting the local gym.
Neil’s preferred reading tends to be non-fiction and his favourites include Nelson Mandela’s Long walk to Freedom, South by Ernest Shackleton and Psychology books by Arthur Sacks.
