January 6, 2017

We want to be the best leaders we can be and we want to make a difference to the people we support. The trouble is we are often our own biggest critics – we are often too hard on ourselves and I am not sure that is always a good thing?

Finding Dory – it was a team effort!

Finding Dory, as you may know, is the latest Pixar film which we all enjoyed as a family on a visit to the cinema. This was especially a favourite of Bettina’s as we had watched the trailers on YouTube numerous times. During our recent holiday in Whitby, we took the opportunity to buy Bettina a Finding Dory balloon filled with helium.

Living your life well

I think living your life well is a personal matter; it can mean so many different things to so many people. Although I do think you should reflect on what it means as often as possible. I believe that life is a precious gift. So what does living your life well mean to me?

Networking: it really is all about who you know

My life has been enriched by the people I know and I have come to the conclusion that the success I have achieved in both my careers has often been due to the people I know. I wanted to share with you my ideas and tips which will hopefully help you benefit from networking, especially if you struggle at conventions to network.

Finding a ‘why’

Standing outside the gate of the Garrison Athletics Track in Colchester on a cold dark Tuesday night, had it really been 20 years since I was last there waiting to start a group run? Would I be able to keep up? And would I be embarrassed if I struggled? In my head I am 29, but physically I am now 59. But more to the point – WHY? Why am I doing this?

The Art of Reinvention

I love life. I want to be the best I can be and even as I approach 60 I still think my best years are ahead of me. So why do I feel the need to reinvent myself and how will it help me become the man Joyce wants me to be?

Reach your potential, then go further!

At 33yrs old I had not reached my potential with my running and I was determined to do so, hell I was going to go further than my potential. I was only going to do this by training with people who were better than me. As a leader, coach, mentor and a trainer, I feel that supporting people to reach their potential is a key aspect of leadership.
