An Accurate View of Lighthouse International Group In The Media
Two articles published by the Daily Mail have been the most recent attempt by a small group of disgruntled ex-partners and other non-affiliated people to damage the reputation of Lighthouse International Group, character assassinate Chairman Paul Waugh and destroy the livelihoods of those conducting pioneering work at Lighthouse.
After publication, Lighthouse International Chairman Paul Waugh was joined in his home by the senior partners, Chris Nash, Warren Vaughan, Shaun Cooper, Adam Wallis and Kris Deichler to discuss this libellous Daily Mail article and smear campaign.
Below are the videos which will address the accusations in the Daily Mail articles, the background to the online smear campaign, how it came about and those involved.
This meeting ended up being a fascinating 5-hour discussion of the article. To those interested in truth beyond sensationalism, these talks will be an exciting and revealing glimpse into exactly what has been pioneered at Lighthouse for 18 years. Subsequently, we have been approached by two TV Production companies who are very aware of the Daily Mail’s one-sided sensationalised stance and genuinely want to understand the entirety of who we are and what we do.
Below is Paul Waugh’s anticipatory response to the second article from the Daily Mail…

Welcome to the Public Domain
Anyone who chooses to take private matters into the public domain needs to realise that you cannot have it all one way… your way. This is not a one-way street. You are now in the public domain too.
The only way you can try and do that is anonymously.
Lighthouse International Group is deeply committed to honouring our client’s confidentiality, however, once personal information has been voluntarily released by the client in the public domain beyond the confidentiality of the mentoring/coaching relationship, it cannot be considered to be confidential information held solely by Lighthouse International Group and that particular client’s mentor/coach anymore.
Everyone at Lighthouse International Group is operating under their own names. We are accountable to everything we say.

What Are We Doing About This At Lighthouse International?
We at Lighthouse International Group are now educating people and the press on the truth behind our work. We are holding these trolls legally and criminally accountable to the full extent of the law including the Daily Mail for publishing such falsehoods.
We have launched Parents & Business Against Trolls to teach individuals and companies globally how to handle toxic employees from within and parents and children who are being attacked online. We have experienced this personally ourselves, and are now using these experiences to teach others.
Why Are We Doing This?
For the last 12 months, Lighthouse International Group has been attacked online in a coordinated smear campaign by 2 ex-Associates leaving over a financial dispute as well as from toxic families of the people we mentor, coach and counsel to heal from often horrific abuse. These online trolls have tried to destroy the business and attack us our families personally. They have been directly or indirectly involved in racist posts, posting pictures of children and locations of where business partners live. This has cost the business a huge amount of money, man-hours and lost clients not to mention personal distress.
We have personally experienced toxic narcissism in people as one of the biggest obstacles in the way of businesses and teams reaching their full potential. After many years of research, we realised that toxic narcissism, especially in those closest to us, is at the root of many forms of abuse, including those who become online trolls. It must be dealt with. Good businesses, good people and children are having their lives destroyed because of it.
Who Are We?
We are a group of parents, entrepreneurs, fathers, brothers, sons, sisters, daughters and mothers… Each of us has personally been attacked by toxic people in our lives. In our 18 years, we spent 7 years just having to protect, nurture, and counsel members of our team from past and current abuse.
Those close to us have lost children, as young as 11 years old, to online trolling, as you will see in the video below.
