Why we do what we do stems from a simple story.
And it all starts back when I was 7……. (in the mists of the last century)….
At my 1st year in junior school, I could spell better than my class teacher. I sat an entrance exam and at 8 (2nd year juniors) I then went to a private prep school – The Perse School for Girls. I went from being teacher’s helper (especially with spelling) to just another pupil who was middle to bottom of the class academically. The girls at the Perse were from a very different background to me; there were many who were also very sporty and while I’ve always been quite good, I was never good enough at the Perse to compete with them.
I left at age 11 and went to the local comp. What a complete culture change that was. Life was completely different at The Manor. I was unique – out of a school of 1500 I was the only “ginger”. I also “posh” (I had had speech training lessons at the Perse – & I can still project if required!). I didn’t need to actually work to get good marks, but I was good enough – I was top or 2nd in most classes and I was in every school sports team and I thrived.
I didn’t shine at the Perse, but in an environment where I could shine I did – the old adage of Success breeds success was applicable to me.
So now I help people become as good as they can be because I know what it feels like to not be good enough. I help them become unstuck, overcome their barriers and shine and thrive, and I do that through the medium of training and coaching.
