Today is this blog’s 1 year anniversary – you can see the first post here.
I like to think I’ve improved and I certainly feel happier and more confident about writing a blog than I did 12 months ago. Who would have imagined me sharing poetry here!
Along the way I’ve found huge support, kind words, intelligent comments and challenging thinking. A lot of this has come from the ConnectingHR & EMCC communities on Twitter. Thank you so much!
To anyone contemplating taking that step into blogging, I have to say to you make the time and just start. Do it for yourself & learn from the experience – it’s a great source of reflection. Find your way – it’s hard at first but you will get great support.
Perhaps most importantly, just remember this little quote from @Projectlibero….
“You get a wonderful view from the point of no return”
On this anniversary, the blog has just hit 4,000 views! So to celebrate this landmark & as a thank you to the community I want to give something back.
I have “just one” free ticket to give away for the first of the new EMCC UK Symposiums on “Mapping the Mind“. The lucky winner can chose whether to attend in London on 6th March or Manchester on 15th March. All I ask in return is that the winner writes a guest blog post here about their experience.
Here’s what you need to do
Please nominate someone who isn’t already going but you think is both deserving of the ticket and would value the symposium. Please ensure that they are able to go and willing to provide a guest blog. Then just email me with a brief explanation of why you’ve nominated them to firstname.lastname@example.org
My choice of the lucky winner will take place on Friday 27th January.

With a very heartfelt nomination from Ian Pettigrew (@KingfisherCoach) the lucky winner is Bev Holden (@stickythinker) who will be going to the Manchester Symposium on the 15th March. Watch out for her guest blog post on the experience!
Well done Bev! Hope you have a fantastic experience. Looking forward to the guest blog (David, Bev and I know each other from a few years back … six degrees of separation and all that jazz!)
