Paul Weston is the Founder of Tempo1 Solutions as well as a musician and Ironman Triathlete and fundraiser. For one if his triathlons he raised money for The Arthritis Society, my favorite charity.
I interviewed him for Journey To Success Radio.
Born in Yorkshire, England, Paul Weston’s early interests in life were music and sport, and at age 16, he joined the Royal Marines Band Service as a woodwind and string player.
His 26-year career took him to over 50 countries including several overseas tours on board the Royal Yacht Britannia in support of the Royal family.
Commissioned to officer in 1996, he passed Special Duties Office Training and served as a Director of Music and as a General Service Staff Officer in support of NATO and UN operations around the globe.
As well as his music and military career, Paul played representative command rugby, cricket and golf, became a passionate windsurfer and snowboarder and completed the London Marathon, raising several thousands of pounds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society in the UK.
In 2005, Paul left the military and immigrated to Canada, and in 2006 formed Tempo1 Solutions, a consultancy aimed at helping companies develop effective leadership and management practices. He is also a contracted partner with Crestcom International, a world authority in leadership development.
His client base is spread across north America and he is also much sought after as a Key Note Speaker and presenter and spends much of his time raising funds for worthy causes through various activities.
In 2014, he attempted his first ever triathlon (a very short ‘tri-a-tri’) and once completed, immediately entered the 2015 Muskoka Ironman – exactly a year ahead – which he completed in 13 hours and 50 minutes, raising over $4,000.00 for the Canadian Cancer Society.
In 2016, he completed the Mont Tremblant Ironman in a new best time of 13 hours and 19 minutes and raised over $4,000.00 for The Arthritis Society.
He is now starting his preparations for the 2017 Lake Placid Ironman, the 2017 Around the Bay Road Race, the 2017 Paris to Ancaster Bike Race, and the 2017 Scotia Bank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.
As well as his consulting work, Paul is a very active semi-professional musician and conductor and has worked with several orchestras around the GTA.
He currently lives in Newmarket, Ontario with his family.
