Life’s Big Questions . . .

You know that moment, that feeling when you realise the true quantity of your workload? Then you do nothing except ponder life’s big questions.
Well that’s what I did and that’s the reason our monthly newsletters have not reached your inbox since January. Not that I was doing nothing, it’s because of the developments that’s taking place within WIN that I've let the newsletter slip and of the huge amount of volunteer help we use to get from our students ceased during exam and dissertation time . . . and course I've got to still  find answers for life’s big questions . . . and in between I found the time to go walking on glass at a women's empowerment day . . . see the pictures below . . . that's real glass and that's really me.

One of my Trustee’s from The WILDE Foundation phoned and asked what had happened to the newsletters, I also received emails querying the newsletter's absence and I am happy that some of you connect with our aims, we have more in common than we know and thanks for the interest and support.

For the past few years WIN has been collaborating with other organisations and companies and this really is the way forward if we are to make any significant changes. There is nothing new under the sun and so when I see another new group/organisation pop up confessing to be the ‘Best’ or ‘Biggest’ in the field I think it's great because you've got to aim high and you've got to think big.

And because there's so much that has happened in the life and progress of WILDE so far this year, I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves.

What Have We Been Up To?
Among a host of activities I was nominated for the Woman4 Africa Award, a very elegant affair that took place in Kensington Town Hall in May. We met an array of talented, intelligent, inspirational, entrepreneurial, empowering and creative women, all exceedingly beautiful in their own way, all with a story of an incredible life journey to share.
Alas I didn’t win but it’s always nice to be acknowledged for the passion you have for accomplishing your goal, and it was another great excuse for a ‘girlie’ night out on the town.

Jenny Garrett, Women’s Coach of the Year 2014

In July we were invited to see the amazing Jenny Garrett, a sought after executive coach and trainer, the author of Rocking Your Role – the how to guide to success for female breadwinners. Jenny is a speaker and the founder of Reflextion Associates Leatership Consultancy and Co-Founder of Roacking Ur Teens CIC. 

The latter, ‘Rocking Ur Teens’ was why Jenny and I met in Bush Theatre in West London in July over drinks. We were introduced by that other awesome Author and Coach, Jackee Holder, who saw the similarities in the works of our young peoples programme.
Needless to say Jenny and I share the same ethos, and we look forward to working with Jenny on one of our young peoples programme. In the mean time do check out Jenny's book, Rocking Your Role.
