Testimonials for Ray Good

“Ray is not only an insightful and mindful person, he's also a stand-up guy who has really mastered his craft. The one-on-one sessions with Ray were not only enjoyable, they were extremely practical and useful. Ray's ability to deliver complex content in a digestible way is a skill not many have. He backed up themes with research, justified outcomes with science and helped build behaviors in me that will hopefully change the way I approach life. I highly recommend Ray and would actually implore anyone curious about living mindfully to give him a call”

Andrew Lipp, International Brand Lead, Google


 

“Ray is an amazing facilitator. Loved his practical science-based approach, easy to integrate, inspirational stuff, especially about how to manage technology and information overload. Looking forward to our next session”

Steve Maidment, Chief digital officer , Crownbet

 

Ray’s sessions have been a game-changer for me. I’ve used mindfulness Apps in the past but never managed to keep it going. Thanks to Ray’s guidance I’m now meditating everyday. I’m less stressed, I get more done, I’m able to switch off and I’m sleeping better than ever. Guess I found my good place, thanks Ray”

Ray Good's Biography

Ray Good is a mindfulness coach for high achievers, creatives and entrepreneurs, forward-thinking businesses, and the terminally stressed. We’ve taken the candles and sandals out of meditation and chucked in a bunch of other stuff: science, consistency, laser-like focus, resilience. All the things you need to fight stress, think better and feel happier. And no “Ommms”, we promise.

Rewind back to 1993. The Prodigy just went platinum, crop tops were cool (for some mysterious reason), and Ray Good was living the good life. Well, sort of. In the early 90s, Ray ( aka Sugarray ) was one of the world’s Top 100 DJs, spinning the decks at sold-out raves in London, Tokyo and Berlin, organising large-scale music events for up to 15,000 people. He owned one of Australia’s most respected import record stores, even started his own record label. Not bad for a 25 year-old.

Things were good, but they weren’t always easy.

See life, as one of the world’s top DJs doesn’t leave much time for inner tranquility, vegetables, or getting to bed at a reasonable hour. Ray was burning out. So were most of his mates. Eventually someone said, “You should try meditation. Here, borrow my Enya CD…”. That was 25 years ago, and Ray has been meditating every day since.

That daily practice gave Ray something you don’t get from money and success: balance, focus, a chance to reboot. He turned that clarity into Hooked – a sustainable seafood restaurant empire. Ray built the business from scratch over 10 years, scaling the operation, opening new stores.

When the time was right, Ray sold Hooked to focus on his real passion: Meditation. His quiet, daily ritual, which, in the business world, is as close as you can get to ‘Secret Sauce’.

These days he works as a full-time meditation and mindfulness coach – helping creatives, high-flyers and entrepreneurs find their Good Place.

Think about it. The best guy to teach silence is the one who understands noise.

Ray’s style mixes modern science and eastern philosophy. It’s evidence-based mindfulness and resilience training, backed with 26 years’ experience and the latest scientific research. Anything to help his clients feel better and think better. (Except healing crystals. They don’t really do anything.)

You want to see some credentials? Ray’s an accredited meditation teacher and mindfulness coach. He did his Mindfulness facilitation training under Dr. Craig Hassed at Monash University and completed teacher training with Melbourne Meditation Centre. He’s also a fully-paid member of Meditation Australia…and pretty handy with a turntable.

TAKE A GLANCE AROUND YOUR OFFICE. HOW DOES EVERYONE LOOK? HOW’S THEIR POSTURE? ARE THEY HAPPY? HOW MANY COFFEES ARE THEY SLAMMING JUST TO GET THROUGH THE DAY?

Every leader wants to get the most out of their team. But long hours, constant stress, information overload, high attrition and, yep, even depression – none of that is good for business or for people. Welcome to the costs of living unmindfully.

HOW WE CAN HELP

Ray runs secular mindfulness and mediation workshops for tired bosses and coffee-addled employees. And the benefits can equal big bucks.

Improve team productivity and performance

 Reduce attrition rates, sick leave and absenteeism

Make your team happier (sounds simple when you say it like that)

Lower stress and increase team resilience

Help your team manage technology and information overload

Attract top talent through good workplace culture

WHAT IT’S COSTING YOU?

The math behind this stuff is pretty well documented. Dozens of studies have proved the cost of not having a workplace wellness program outweighs the cost of implementing one.

Think about it. How much does staff turnover, absenteeism and low productivity cost your business? A 2015 Australian Industry Group survey reckons it's about $578 per employee per absent day. That’s around $44 billion to the Australian economy every year.
