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.
