As you well know, I simply love stories of people overcoming adversity, triumphing over injustice, rising above the seemingly insurmountable odds they were faced with and coming through in the end.

And for those of you who like me, also love a good doseĀ of sporting overcomers, please indulge me in a brief but oh so brilliant summary of Liverpool’s European footballing determination as demonstrated last week. Something we haven’t seen since 2005, when they came back from being 3-0 down at half-time to AC Milan, to eventually win the Champions’ League Final in Istanbul.

I am at heart, a communicator. I love to use words, whether written or spoken and maximise those words to hopefully, bring some encouragement - literally, to put courage into the hearts & minds of those who read or hear them. In my work as an executive coach, speaker, workshop facilitator, I love also to listen...deeply, and then respond with some encouragement.
