Insight

In the glittering heydays of 1980s advertising, Michael was in the thick of it; working at Saatchi’s and living the prolific adman lifestyle. High pressured deadlines, a pace as fast as lightning and alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol. His journey - as Michael’s wife would call it - is from being off his head to on his head. From alcoholic to Yogi.

Both life’s joys and heartbreaking tragedies would change the trajectory of Michael’s life. The birth of his son set him on track to what is now twenty years of sobriety and the untimely and sudden death of his brother would be a harsh dose of perspective that would see him follow his heart and leave the addicting excesses of the advertising world.

Michael Townsend Williams is a DOer who likes to be. Through his experiences of obsessive doing in advertising and obsessive being in yoga, he created a company where being and doing can come together. Do Breathe, the welldoing company, is on a mission to get the world breathing better.

Michael is also the author of 'DO Breathe: Clear your head. Find focus. Get stuff done'.
