“Working with Derek and SEVEN not only did I unearth a lot of dark truths, but it really pushed me to my limits and to the best version of myself. It makes you ask a lot of questions about yourself and understand your WHY! I’ve gone from leaving a career and moving to a new city to finding my vocation in life. I’m now a yacht broker and living the life I’ve always wanted. It has been an amazing experience personally and money well spent. I couldn’t be happier.”

Oliver Yacht Broker


“Thanks to Seven I have kept moving forward when everything in my life was holding me back. I can safely say that this was the best decision I had taken in while and definitely recommend Seven.”

Ilyas MSc Finance and Private Equity at LSE


“Over the course of a few weeks my confidence and clarity grew significantly culminating in a plan that we executed together. I look back on this now and can say, without reservation, represents huge value for money!”
