Following on from my June workshop at Society1 and presentation at University of Central Lancashire, I’m excited to announce that I’m running a complimentary Growth Sessions workshop on 31st July 2018 at East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce in Clayton-le-Moors.
The impact that culture and environment has on wellbeing and business performance.
The habits and behaviours which are affecting your overall performance and the impact they have on the way you work.
How to create small, simple changes to your existing routines to counteract bad habits and build better ones.
Booking for this popular session is essential via Eventbrite.
The aim of the Growth Sessions talks and workshops is to support the wellbeing of knowledge workers, creative thinkers, and people working in the digital sphere. Growth Sessions is a platform for raising awareness, sharing tools and exploring ideas which empower you to improve your habits, strengthen your wellbeing, and activate more of your potential, at work and in life.
Here is what people are saying about Growth Sessions:
“I recently attended a Growth session workshop and it was insightful and full of practical actions. Highly recommended.”
– Simon Price (Senior Lecturer – Employability & Innovation, UCLan)
“A fun and informative session with real life application. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.”
– Catarina King (Society1)
If you’re based up North, come and join me to find out for yourself how Growth Sessions can help you. :)
I’ve been hearing this phrase a lot lately and it’s true. Real-world heroes are more ordinary than extraordinary.
They are just like you and me.
And that means that we’re capable of being our own heroes.

Hope your Valentine’s week is filled with heaps of bold gestures of love, whether you’re sharing it with a special someone or not. Remember, loving others well starts with loving “you”. That’s what heroes do!
I’ll keep this first post of January short, as we’re all busy starting the year on the right foot. :)
The new year holds many new opportunities, situations, scenarios, encounters and events. Some of these you will be familiar or comfortable with. However, there’ll be some new ones too. They might be uncomfortable. They might be scary. But guess what?
When the big idea hits – your light bulb moment – it’s often described as being a bolt from the blue.
Something unexpected. Something brilliant.
So, it’s no wonder that you may feel pressure for a major fireworks display when it comes to finding your next business idea. Or deciding how to go about making a career change. Or searching for your true purpose in life.
How to ban your worst self from the bathroom mirror, and elsewhere in your life…
It’s that time of year…
When the work pressure gets cranked to overdrive in that last minute push before the office closes … Or your home life may become a blur of extra domestic chores before the family descends, and you have a gift shopping list the length of a novel.
It’s easy to make safe choices, because they appeal to our default survival skills.
The safe option could be your meal choice, your career choice, or your sock choice.
Sometimes this is a good thing. We don’t want to get sick from eating shellfish before a big meeting. We want to know we can support ourselves with the work we do. And we want to look and feel good about our appearance while we’re doing it.
And if someone else has made similar choices and appears to have succeeded, it might make sense to follow that same path. Right? Maybe not…
