Spiritual Practices That Increase Business Potential

I’ve always been a spiritual person. One who believes not only in the transformative power of the mind and positive thinking, but that there is a greater good working in our favour.  My whole career as you may know, was launched on a chance meeting that I don’t believe to be a coincidence.

Everyday Ageism – Why We All Need To Take A Good Look In The Mirror

In my search for lockdown entertainment and as a piece of research to inform my own podcast, I’ve recently broadened my listening horizons.

Some have branded the idea ‘discriminatory’; others believe it to be ‘inevitable’ and the only safe for the world to open-up again. Either way, it begs the tantalising question – are vaccine passports the …

Persistence Is Your Most Valuable Business Weapon

Persistence. Not a word that’s often celebrated. Nor, in my view, a trait that is not encouraged enough. For many, it’s a word that invariably throws up pessimism and challenging connotations. Yet, I firmly believe that persistence is your most valuable business weapon, and in the last year, it’s fuelled my drive to continue to reach for the stars. Persistence …

The Difference Between Goals and Dreams

As it is for most, December is usually the most hectic month of the year for me. As an event planner of over thirty years, I’m accustomed to spending the festive season in a whirl of organisation, fuelled with coffee, adrenaline (perhaps a glass of wine or two), executing the season’s most exclusive, spectacular parties.

Overcoming the Challenges of Digital Motivational Speaking
