Really proud to be nominated to @bbclondonpeople Instagram project #greaterlondoners.
Although the journalist got a few things wrong, including it was an unpaid week trial I did for the accountant not paid it made me reflect on what I have achieved. Through the Real Apprentice and its successor Growing Talent, I’ve got over 600 people into permanent full-time jobs – literally changing their lives – as they tell me. All with barriers. All without the confidence to secure a job the traditional route. One of these, Shennell, nominated me for this #greaterlonder project. #proud #humble
I drew on my experience years later when devising the Real Apprentice which run from 2004 to 2013 and won multiple awards including the best of Europe to Growing Talent – 2014-Present.
It’s amazing the difference we can make to others without realising the impact we make. I’m guilty of not reflecting on what I do enough. I believe most of us don’t reflect on our actions and affirm just how great we are!
Take time to nurture yourself.
