Incredibly Proud to Receive this from The Prince’s Trust – See What’s Globally Possible With Expert Mentoring!

April 22, 2016

I’m incredibly proud to receive this card today! And for whatever reason it does not want to seem ordinary – why should it – it’s exceptional – but it refuses to rotate so you may need to stand on your head to read the #Wonderful words of young people who have been helped though the programme.  For me? I am SO PROUD to have helped  countless young people with Coaching and Mentoring over 10 years to succeed through starting and growing their own enterprises! AND …

Go and look at Simon’s #Amazing work and marvel. Personally? The Prince’s Trust is missing a trick in not showing the extent of what’s globally possible with help through their Business Programme for young people. My message?Go on! You know you can help!

If you are an experienced entrepreneur and know how to Coach and Mentor, Go on – Get in touch today.  You’ll be thrilled with the results and that #Wonderful feeling you only get from giving back and creating a legacy through others.

#IdeaToEnterprise for Women Entrepreneurs Declared a Resounding Success!And there were Outtakes!!

April 15, 2016

Just been reviewing the showreel produced by the fabulous creative Ursula Kelly of UrsulaKellyPhotography who covered the whole one day Idea to Enterprise conference for Women Entrepreneurs where  I recently gave my Keyno2te on my Top Tips for Entrepreneurial Success (as a Serial Entrepreneur with 10 Business To My Credit) that have helped thousands of businesses to start and grow globally.

Can you imagine working through around 200 photos?  But there they are and they captured the people, the speakers, delegates, presentations, the WOW (Women of Wisdom) panel, ethos of the event and so much more…

I thought you may like to see a couple of what we thought were ‘off camera’ moments, so here they are to show that whatever you do, there’s always someone watching!

Caught in the Act! Yes, speakers need a coffee break too. And when you have a client like the amazing Tasneem Dakri, with her FABULOUS  healthy vegan desserts you ARE going to sample them! And when you are asked to sign your latest book (in my case ‘Woman Power: Strategies for Female Leaders’, a global anthology with a complete chapter on my Vital Vision Blueprint™ Process designed to help you  transform your life and business) you WILL say ‘Yes’.

And when you speak or present on a topic you are passionate about – there may be some unusual expressions! But as long as the powerful messages get across? Job done!!

One #Amazing Day is the only way I can describe this Idea to Enterprise Conference, the culmination of an exciting and innovative programme run by Leicestershire County Council and Project Managed by  Bernadette Sarginson of Empower Coaching & Training who also Chaired the Idea to Enterprise Conference.

You’ll get some idea of the calibre when I tell you that the BUZZ was SO BIG that a female passer by, who had been thinking of starting her own business, saw the crowd at The Phoenix Centre, Leicester, UK and walked in to find out what was happening.

Of course, we welcomed her with open arms! because this event was for both Start Ups and established businesses determined to grow.

I was delighted to have been invited to present an Inspirational Keynote, focusing on the Power of Holistic Vital Vision™ to Create the Life and Business You REALLY Want!

AND  an emphasis on the power of getting a great mentor (It can sometimes be a lonely affair running your business and the slide shows some of the ways an experienced mentor can help you.

Nicky Morgan MP, Minister for Women and Equalities made an appearance during the day and the the line up of the other Inspirational Speakers included Women Entrepreneurs who are busy transforming the performance of entrepreneurs and their ventures around the world: Sophie Bennett, Founder of The Wealth Network; Lisa Spencer-Arnall, CCS Coaching; Rachel Green, Celebrity Chef plus a whole host of Workshops run by Sophie Bennett, Sue Gorman, Joined Up Working; Daksha Patel, Your Mind At Work; Rachel Roberts, RR Accountancy and more…

The packed programme continued with the afternoon session including an overview of the Idea to Enterprise programme’s impact from Peter Mosley and the WOW Panel Q&A with Women of Wisdom: Michele Walsh –MsMoneymaker; Julie-Anne Hart – Intuitive Consultant; Sue Ritchie –  Your Ecstatic Health;  Caroline Beasley – Starflower Company; Sindy Kaur – Challenging Perceptions of Beauty and myself, Serial Entrepreneur, Coach and Mentor, Women Entrepreneur Keynote Speaker and Co-Author of the global anthology ‘Woman Power: Strategies for Female Leaders’

The whole programme, run over several months, also involved a series of Women Entrepreneur Training Days and Group Coaching and Mentoring Days.

Voted a Resounding Success, with many participants continuing their Coaching and Mentoring Journey to ensure the success of the Visions, Strategies, Plans and Tactics they have designed throughout the programme.

Wouldn’t it be #Wonderful to see this powerful programme, now developed, repeated but also replicated.

Our finale photo of those delivering the programme surely says it all!
