Philip Dyer Founder - Healthy Leaders

Philip has a business career which has spanned over 30 years and a broad range of sectors. Whatever the business sector his focus has always been people, identifying the barriers to personal growth and development and how these impact on organisational aspirations and ambition.

Whilst Philip’s experience extends to international businesses, his passion lies with owner managed businesses; often referred to as the backbone of the British economy.

Philip was the first Entrepreneur in Residence at the University of Central Lancashire and held an Honorary Teaching Fellow position at Lancaster University Management School and is a regular presenter on the topic of wellbeing; having seen too many negative examples of the impact of running your own business – excessive stress; lack of time – his emphasis is on self-care to improve personal wellbeing and quality of life. If you feel good, you perform better; be that at home or work! In response to an overwhelming need, Philip founded Healthy Leaders in 2018 – focusing on wellbeing coaching to increase productivity and performance followed by Healthy Leaders Academy in 2021; an on-demand online proposition, accessible to multiple users.

Philip is a former Black Belt in Karate and British Karate Champion (1977); making physical wellbeing a lifestyle choice, his most recent competitive endeavours were in the international sport of indoor rowing, achieving runner up in the European Championships in January 2019, and a credible 5th place in the World Championships in California – February 2019, and archery, reaching the quarterfinals of the European Masters Games in 2023.

Alex Clapp Founder - Claritee Group

Alex Clapp has owned multiple businesses in the North West including his flagship firm, County Cost Consultant for 23 years. Regarding the costs law sector, County Cost has retained its longevity due to his forward thinking and versatility.

Earlier this year, Alex co-founded Claritee, a corporate wellness company comprising no alcohol corporate events, bespoke corporate training and the recent establishment of a CIO department.

Claritee was born from Alex’s struggle with addiction as a result of a deteriorating eye condition that developed in 2015. With no confirmed diagnosis, Alex resorted to alcohol to cope with his mental health, covering up to family, friends and peers about his affliction. Thankfully, after seeking help, Alex attended multiple rehabilitation centres and has been sober for 9 months.

Through his own plight, Alex endeavoured to help others in a similar situation; individuals in the corporate sphere who may be struggling to admit vulnerabilities. Claritee’s mission is to provide services which encourage individuals to prioritise their wellbeing and instil practices to maintain positive mindsets.
