It is always a joy to work with fitness professionals and today I spent a few hours with some of Aberdeen’s finest trainers. We explored client consultations and examined the science of communication to help enhance the amazing work they already do. Thank you to Mike MacDonald for inviting me to work with you and your colleagues 💜
Today I had the pleasure of supporting the School Of Management MX Programme by delivering a communication masterclass to around 150 international graduates in St Andrews.
Thank you everyone for a great afternoon ..... which extended in to evening !! (Always a good sign when there’s a desire to learn more) - meaningful, light, essential, so important, engaging, professional and ‘the best yet’ ....... all very kind comments as we rounded off the session.
Particular thanks to Maka, Max and Laurie for your kind welcome.
ROYAL COLLEGE OF SURGEONS - GLASGOW
Dentistry has its share of challenging situations and today I spent an afternoon sharing some communication options that will help when conversations need that extra bit of consideration.
It is always a joy to work with professionals who help others and to deliver my work in such a beautiful building added an extra sparkle to the session.
Time to go home after two fulfilling days 😇 I love my work 💜
Received news yesterday that I am a finalist in the Amazing Women Awards. A complete surprise and proud to attend the event in March - wow 😊

Conference Call Time :-)
SERIOUS WORK - FUN PEOPLE
Having exchanged emails and presentation packages over the months, it was a pleasure to meet Shobhan and his project team at Glasgow’s Golden Jubilee Conference Centre. Delivering a condensed communication package including tactics for managing challenging conversations, we had some really helpful discussion and Q&A.
There are a lot of parallels between the medical profession and policing and it was a bit of a ‘mirror moment’ working with this team. The importance and seriousness of the work they do is unquestionable and with it a particular focus and no nonsense approach. On the other side, a sense of fun and light heartedness. It was ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ and they wore them well.
A particular thank you Kristen and Anna from the administration team who have been super-efficient with their communication. A joy to work with you both.
Relaxed chat, a few glasses of prosecco, great company with some fabulous ladies all added to the fun and success of this ladies evening. I joined the wonderful Jenny Copeland in delivering helpful but light hearted tactics for women in business.
Our brief from Jenny Stark from ASK Wealth Management was to create an educational but fun after dinner style talk - a new experience but one that worked so well.
Thank you for a wonderful evening and I hope you enjoy testing out those new skills at work and at home.
The sign of a great night is running for the last train …….. that is all :-)
