Some businesses are still doing brilliantly !

There's so much doom and gloom in the media about the economy, it's great to get a different perspective... This week I was at the High Growth East Midlands Awards organised by EMDA (East Midlands Development Agency) as a guest of Sarah Coleman of Business Evolution Business - who won The Growth Enabler Professional Excellence Award (she is a business coach).

The speaker was Sir Ranulph Fiennes whose world exploration trips have been legendary, and who talked about keeping going in the face of adversity - a great message for all who may be in business and struggling.

All in all it was a wonderful evening of hope, optimism and positivity - and best of all I didn't have to get up there and speak - so could really relax and enjoy the evening!

A big congratulations to Sarah and many thanks to her for inviting me.

Farewell Stephen

In the recent 'Green Slime' post, Stephen has indicated he's taking a sabbatical from my Blog for a while...

And I just wanted to pay him a small tribute to say thank you and goodbye (but only for a while I hope).

Writing a Blog is only fun when it engages communication, controversy and comment - and Stephen has given us all a brilliant run for our money since he started placing his comments. I know I for one will miss his contributions.

Hurry back soon Stephen - this Blog will be a lot less colourful without you!

Finding Your Flow

One of my latest speaking themes is about 'Finding Your Flow' and I've just completed fabulous events on this for the London HR Connection and the ladies of the East Midlands, both of which were incredibly well received.

Interestingly I've been asked to do a 2 hour workshop of the same title at this year's Mind Body Spirit Festival and you can now book tickets for this event for just £20.

During the workshop I'll be taking you through some practical exercises to help you reconnect with your passion and empower you to create an energised and abundant business. I'll also be teaching the secrets of Magnetic Marketing (these are extracts from my Entrepreneurial Masterclass) as well as techniques to increase your vibration to attract the right contacts and opportunities to achieve success.

It's on Thursday 21st May from 5pm to 7pm at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London SW1 and you can buy tickets via - but hurry as numbers are limited and MBS has just gone live with their marketing on the festival this week...

Look forward to seeing you there!

Green Outrage

Just watching breaking news on SKY of green liquid/paint being thrown in the face of Business Secretary Peter Mandelson by what they think was a Heathrow third runway protestor... Amazing that no one grabbed the girl who did it; she just walked away.

Personally I think it was an outrage. No matter what the anger/emotion involved no one deserves to be publicly assaulted in that way. To me much damage has been done to the 'Green' movement today.
