It's been a hectic but rewarding Autumn. 605 people have attended 12 stress management competencies roadshows and related events, including presentations to CIPD in Sheffield and IOSH in London. Also three well-attended train-the-trainers were organized. Thanks to all the event hosts and to everyone who attended.
I haven't worked out how far I've travelled, but it must be several thousands of miles, with events as far apart as Edinburgh and Truro.
Last week included a presentation to ISMA, where I ran a short business development workshop. I was amazed and delighted at the response to this, and I can't remember ever enjoying running a workshop more. It's clear that there is a desperate lack of good business development advice for stress management consultants and practitioners looking to branch out on their own. I'll definitely run more of these next year.
On Thursday, the charity I'm a trustee of, The Marie Trust, had their fundraising dinner at the Radisson in Glasgow. It raised £19k - a great night for a great cause!
Coming up I'm looking forward to presenting to the Royal College of Nursing's Clinical Leadership Programme, which is taking place closer to home.
December will be for catching up with all the home/office based work I've missed, so look out for more blogs and new stuff on the stress site.
