As well as being the CM in CM Learning, I'm the reason that your peers and Senior Leadership Team are going to pat you on the back and tell you how inspired it was that you did so much work to develop a growth mindset for all of the people in your business.
Based in Bournemouth, Dorset, I’ve been doing this for more than 20 years. Since Kylie came back with ‘Spinning Around’, every year of that learning and development has been different.
That’s the beauty of change, and why I want you to embrace it. CM Learning was officially born in 2012, and the pandemic of 2020 has meant that what I do is more important today than it’s ever been.
I’ve got all the certificates you’d hope that someone like me would have, such as my CIPD and a Postgraduate Diploma in HR Management. I’m an accredited Clarity4D business partner, and I have used my learning and development years wisely to explore a range of different disciplines so that I can best support my clients and their unique needs. I’m talking sales, customer service and management and leadership to name a few.
For the first 13 years of my career, I worked in private sector financial services, but since setting up I now work across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. There isn’t a sector or industry that you can tell me doesn’t benefit from a growth mindset within its people.
Bored to death by this point? Okay, here’s the other stuff, because I’m not the only Learning and Development Consultant specialising in mindset. But, I could be the one that best suits your organisation and its people.
I've been facilitating online learning for more than 8 years. I didn't have to 'pivot' to it - it's what I already knew and loved...yes, I'm saying I'd heard of Zoom before it was cool.
Oh, and because I practise what I preach (though I promise you, I never preach – I barely even PowerPoint), I’m a big believer in getting stuck in with my own development. So, as of last year I am currently studying to become a qualified counsellor. Like all of us, I’ve had my own struggles and blocks in my life to work through – trauma, bereavement, negative habits – and now I’m here to combine the personal and professional to make sure your people can build their resilience and relationships…and use them to gain results.
