In 2017, Stephen, who was a Senior Development Manager, overseeing multi-million GBP commercial property projects, suffered a heart attack brought on by work related stress and anxieties.
This horrible experience led to us creating SVH Inc. to work with with businesses in ensuring they don’t lose their people due to stress, anxieties and other mental health issues that lead to physical illness, burn out, staff turnover, presenteeism, absenteeism, and a general lack of engagement.

I come from a background of events (Corporate Social Responsibility, Experiential Marketing, Hospitality, Team Building and Charity works) which earned me an Associate Fellowship in 2014 with the Royal Commonwealth Society, London and an award in Corporate Social Responsibility from the Lagos State Government of Nigeria. I am also an Engaging and Insightful Speaker. Able to connect with and capture the attention of my audience, and take them on a journey of discovery with me, bringing them back more aware and empowered. Be it virtually or in person, my energy is quite palpable, I have been reliably informed by those who have heard me speak.
Recently, I was nominated by the Yorkshire Choice Awards in two categories; Businesswoman of the Year 2019, and Local Fundraiser of the Year, 2019.
I am a Connector who “connects the dots” among people with different backgrounds and strengths by recognising and pointing out patterns that help people come together and build greater resilience. I have an intuitive ability to sense how people with different strengths and weaknesses can come together and establish a common ground, with a focus on building strong, vibrant, happy and incorporated teams
I come from a background of real estate, spanning 30 years and which has taken me around the world, working as an expatriate, leading and delivering major projects.
My vast experiences as an employee, a manager and a director gives me unique insights into the often overlooked stressors of a high paced work life especially in the real estate industry.
Having experienced the nearly fatal ill effects of high stress and anxiety in the workplace with no work life balance, I am wholly committed to helping organisations ensure happiness and engagement at work, reducing the ill and costly effects of a highly stressed work environment.

Castle Howard is one of Britain’s most magnificent historical stately homes. It’s very history is replete with resilience and adaptability, from the length of time it took to finish building it (100 years) to the challenge of a fire outbreak and its restoration.
