Inspiring Schools Programme

We are extremely proud to launch the Inspiring Schools Programme. We have been getting some great interest from schools who are looking to inspire their students with teaching and training that will prepare them for the real world.

We will be working with Year Gifted and Talented school students to help them achieve their maximum potential over the next two years so they go on to fulfil their goals and aspirations.

For those students that don’t know what they want to do after school (and its absolutely normal not to know), we will also be providing Goal Setting workshops to help them narrow down their options and start thinking about their strongest subjects, the subjects they enjoy the most, the right jobs or further education courses that will help them to get there.

Here is a quick snapshot of what we can do for you and your school learners too.

  • Confidence and Self Belief
  • Raising Aspirations
  • Self – Motivation
  • Setting Realistic Goals for Work and Life
  • Managing Time effectively
  • Presenting and Selling Yourself
  • Presentation Skills
  • Cultural Awareness
  • Building effective Networks (it’s not what you know…)
  • Self Awareness
  • Planning your life
  • Leadership and Team Building
  • Entrepreneurship

The overall wrapper around these lessons and workshops is ‘To Create balanced and globally minded school leavers’.

schools, excellence

Do what you love doing. You can earn money doing what you love.

Do what you love doing

There are lots of different mantras out there about how to bring about personal or business success. Once you’ve read as many books as you can you will come to realise that nearly every ‘Guru’ out there is pretty much telling you the same thing but in their own flavour. The question often comes down to ‘Which flavour do you like?’

If I was to offer a simple flavour, it would be the ‘Love What you Do’ flavour.

Doing what everyone else expects from you, or doing something because its easy to do, or you think it can make you some money may well bring you success in some ways, but it will NOT bring you happiness.

If you want Happiness in every aspect of your personal and business life, you need to do just one thing: ‘Do What you love Doing’, even if it scares the living crap out of you.

Love what you do.

Love what you do.

what does your business do?

“What Does your Business Do?”

Too many times, at networking events, when I ask new business owners the question, “What do you do?”, I brace myself because I know I am about to hear their life story. Please don’t do that people!

what does your business do?

Describe your business simply by explaining the benefits and as shortly as you can.

As Einstein allegedly said, ‘If you can’t describe what you do in one sentence, you don’t yet fully understand what you do’.When I first started in business, I was exactly like that too with bags full of enthusiasm and passion but I know now that I made an assumption that nearly all new business owners make. I thought others would be just as passionate about my business as me. Eventually, when I started talking less and with more impact, they would be.

Clients want to know how you can make their world better. If they can see that, then they’ll share your enthusiasm.

Here’s a few tips to make sure you don’t bore the pants off people. They’re often too polite to tell you.

  1. Talk about How you can help them.
  2. Most people care about how you can help them rather than what you do.
  3. Talk to them emotively.
  4. Don’t use jargon. Please!
  5. Tell them Why you do what do you rather than What. Somebody is already doing What you are doing.
  6. If they like your Why, they will ask you for more information and actually be listening.
Here are a few examples of what I say to my prospects or fellow business leaders.
  • “We help to create better leaders”
  • “We help leaders build and grow their business”
  • “We help businesses sell more”
  • “We introduce businesses to new diverse markets”

Try it out and let me know how you go.
