Whether it's illness, financial uncertainty or the devastating loss of a loved one, every life encounters storms. Dr Cecil Stewart understands the pain of grief when a child dies. He knows about the ricochets of shock that follow in the wake of a cancer diagnosis. The Irish businessman also appreciates the stress and anxiety when financial clouds begin to gather. Cecil Stewart's knowledge does not originate from theoretical guesswork. It is born from the harsh and indelible lesson of personal experience.
However, life's choppy waters may have proved cold and uncomfortable but they did not dampen either Cecil's vision or enthusiasm. With stoic determination, he set about building what rapidly became the largest privately owned Nursing Home Group and introduced a new standard of care in both Ireland and the UK. In recognition of his contribution to the caring community as well as Northern Ireland's economy, Dr Stewart was awarded an OBE.
Today his business seminars and humanitarian aid programmes continue to be well known and greatly valued worldwide.
This is the inspirational story of how a lad from Ireland's rural community, not only prevailed against the storms, but managed to soar above the elements and find happiness and success.
