It was a great joy to share the stage with Andy Puddicombe, the co-founder and ‘Voice’ of Headspace, at the GQ Heroes Retreat at Soho Farmhouse.

Headspace is the meditation app with 45 million downloads. Yet Andy records all of his meditations alone from a small dark studio two blocks from Venice Beach.

Bristol boy turned ordained Tibetan monk, turned trapeze artist, before he co-founded Headspace and moved to LA.

Andy Puddicombe is living proof that technology can be a force for good.

Andy is down to earth, playful, accessible and open. He really is a hero.
