Real Conversations

Real Conversations has been designed with people at the forefront.  Simply for me people deliver results for your business.  Without them there is nothing.

Over many years of working in the corporate world I was tasked to deliver a KPI, not always fully understanding the reason behind that target or the effect I was having on delivering that target. Poorly engaged or brainwashed into believing I was doing the right thing for customers when maybe I was doing the right thing for shareholders or investors. There has to be  a balance of course, however, my beliefs are firmly placed in empowering your people/team to be the best they can be through supporting, coaching, developing and communicating with them as well as listening to their input & acknowledging their skills.

Speaking with confidence

There was a time that I would very much feel the fear of speaking or presenting to groups of people.

How could i get over this crucial element of my day to day job??

Practice, study, practice and most importantly “knowing my stuff”.

What i discovered was that the more confident I was in my subject matter then the easier it was for me to present effectively and lose the fear .  I have come full circle in this area and have spoken to fairly large audiences with little problem.  Breathe, relax and remember the delegates are there to listen to you and are prepared for you views , opinions and experiences from life and business.

Knowing Yourself Better


I have learned more about myself in the last 12 months than ever before ….

I have been tested in terms of resilience, learning, commitment, drive and confidence.

The truth is I am still being tested but I feel alive as I continue building relationships and looking for opportunities to help others reach their goals as I look to reach mine .

When I heard the words ” your role is no longer part of the company structure ” … only then did I start to put my experience into play for me ….after initial fear.

                                                                           What makes us , what drives us , life events ….
