Plenty of variety

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

May is looking set to be an exciting month with plenty of variety ahead.

I’m going to be working with some new clients coaching them in leadership skills, as well as reconnecting with some past clients I’ve previously done workshops for plus concluding programmes with several other clients.  It’s always nice to be able to work with past clients and see the progress they’ve made, whether that’s over months or years. It gives me great satisfaction to see the improvements.

My first book is also moving at pace and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with this as it draws to a conclusion – watch this space!

Excitingly, I have also been commissioned to co-write a book about ‘Employee Engagement’ for Routledge Books, which should allow me some international exposure.  Work on this should start in July.

There’s plenty going on in the background too with Grant Thornton.  We’re moving a step closer to agreeing workshops for their ‘G’ Leadership programme, and I’m having similar conversations with Oxford Innovation.

On the same theme this month I’m in discussions with Nat West Bank to discuss running workshops for their own clients covering leadership, motivation and employee engagement, much along the same lines of the leadership programme for Grant Thornton and Oxford Innovations.

Business South are also keen to see what workshops I could run for some of their key clients.

It’s great exposure for me to work with the likes of these businesses and their own client bases, enabling me to meet some really fascinating people.

I’ve also been asked to present a two-hour leadership workshop for select clients of Rubicon People – a recruitment company based down in Poole – some interesting clients will be attending which will make for an exciting workshop.  I’m doing something similar with Tate Recruitment on motivation for their top clients.

I’ve joined forces with some key business associates to form the in the UK Best Practice Forum aimed at manufacturing clients who want to meet up and share best practice.  Our 2nd event will involve me running an Employee Engagement Event for the UK Best Practice Forum. We already have some interesting manufacturing clients attending.

Later this month I’ll also be undertaking some judging for the UK Call Centre Forum which should be fun!

Progress is being made with the Post Office also so I hope to be able to share some exciting news with you on that soon.

And amongst all the work, I have a birthday to celebrate so that’s got to be the highlight! Yes, another year older and they say another year wiser – let’s see!
