My big announcement
This is a big announcement for me!
I started teaching in 1995, a scary realisation for myself when I thought about it as twenty years give or take is a long time. I have thoroughly enjoyed my adventures with different organisations and meeting so many interesting people, not only that, but my passion to teach others and to share my experiences has driven me to write and deliver courses, workshops, summits and keynote lectures all over the world. In a word, it has been fantastic and I feel very grateful for the opportunities and experiences.
I have been very fortunate that for over twenty years I have been able to do something that I love. I still love to teach, I still get a buzz out of it, however the time has come to take a time out. I need to take a break from teaching in order to fulfil another desire within me. One that I really need to see through. I really would like to finish writing my book.
Some of you are aware of this. I have been writing this book on and off for the last three years but still there are words unwritten and now I know why. The passion and time that I have put into teaching has made it impossible for me to devote the time to my book, as well as running my busy client practices in London and Wakefield.
For that reason I have decided that I will be taking a sabbatical from teaching in 2018. I am making a commitment to myself to write my book. This is obviously the announcement just in case you missed it!
What does that mean to you?
In a nutshell this means that I will not be teaching any of my courses in 2018. So if your intention was to do any of my courses in 2018, then you need to act now. If you don’t take them this year, then you will be waiting until 2019.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my students for their support, you have all enabled me to do something that I love for the last 20 years. However I would urge you, take the leap of faith, if you have a story to tell inside of you, or a message you want to deliver, then put pen to paper. Write more, ask permission less. Make time in your life for your story.
