Healthy living tour

Six months ago I radically changed my eating and exercise habits and as a result, have lost over 20 kilos and taken 6.5”off my waist. I now walk around 15k steps each day, and intend to do so for 365 consecutive days (I reached the half way point, and 1190 miles, last week!). A lot of this is down to my health coach, Anna, who will be joining me to provide a series of half-day workshops over the two week period, 21 October to 1 November. If you’d like to book one of these workshops, of have more details, please contact me. The workshop could truly be a life changing event – I cannot recommend it too highly.

Our first open course

Yay! After 30 years of only running in-house courses, we’ve finally taken the plunge to offer an open, public course.  It’s on one of our popular topics, ‘Nudge Theory’, and is for anyone whose role is to influence, persuade or get the buy in of others. It will be on the 11 September, in Salford.

Coaching for coaches

Many of you will know me mainly as a personal coach, and I do feel that’s where I’ve made my most significant contributions.  I’ve sometimes been asked “how did you do that?”, or “how did you know that?” So I’ve decided to run a one-day workshop for existing coaches, where I offer my best advice, toolkit and skills set for successful coaching.  There will be two opportunities: Tuesday, 23 July, and Wednesday 9 October, both in Manchester.  Numbers are limited to 12 per session, so please get in touch for further details if you’d like to attend.

Motown Moon

And now for something completely different!  As I grew up (?!) in the 1960s I had two major passions: the music of Tamla Motown and the Apollo space programme.  This year (July) sees the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, which put the first man on the moon. To celebrate I’ve created a special presentation called ‘Motown Moon’ in which I tell the story of the both the Apollo programme and the history of Tamla Motown, all to the backdrop of stunning space visuals and a Motown soundtrack.  The presentation lasts 45 minutes, and can be followed by a Motown disco…!  All this is free, for a charity donation, so if you’re looking for a summer social.
