I'd like to wish all my clients, colleagues and friends in comms a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year. I'm signing off for the rest of 2017 and back to business on Monday 8 January 2018. I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with my family and recharging my…
I'm very pleased to have won a Silver PRide award on 17 November 2017. The category was Outstanding Independent Practitioner, within my CIPR region, the South of England and Channel Islands. I've never entered awards as an independent consultant before. I knew it was about time I did. After all,…
Back at the end of May early June, I entered the PRide awards for the South of England and Channel Islands. I’m so pleased to say, I’ve been shortlisted for Outstanding Independent Practitioner.
It’s been over six years since I started my comms consultancy. And for much of that time I’ve been working with CIPR Inside providing communication consultancy, running the #insidestory awards and continually reviewing and evolving the awards since we launched them in 2012.
On Monday 16 Jan ’17 we held a brilliant judging day as part of the fifth #insidestory awards. I loved meeting the entrants and judges and hearing their stories. Everyone enjoyed the day.
But now it’s time for me to branch out more with my business. So that judging day was my last task to support the group. The committee are all set for the party when the big news of who wins will be announced. I’m coming too. Just try and stop me going to the zoo!!!
Yesterday I wrote about #my3words. I’ve chosen these words to guide me for the year ahead and beyond. New Year’s resolutions are made with great intentions, then often discarded by the end of Jan because they are too complex, fail to engage or are too vague (be fitter, healthier, get a better job etc…).
So when Chris Brogan’s email landed in my inbox in the new year and he talked about his approach of using three words to guide the year, it made good sense to me. I figure if it’s worked for him for the past 11 years, it’s got to be worth trying it out for myself…
My three words are: Voice, Moment and Human. Each has a multi-faceted meaning across my personal and professional life. Yesterday I explained my rationale for Voice – which is a big one for me.
Today I’ll explain Moment.
