After becoming disillusioned with the political campaigning path MHFA England had chosen to take, I decided it was time to move on.
Following my communication to them informing them of my decision, their Chief Operating Officer contacted me to find out why.
This is such an important step to ensure a complete understanding of viewpoints and to iron out if there has been any misunderstanding.
Not only did we spend time reminiscing the early days of MHFA England and the drive to attract the corporate sector, it reminded us both how much had been achieved.
I had never understood how much I was thought of positively. It’s a good few years since we sat in meetings together to drive forward goals. In the intervening years we hadn’t had much direct contact – paths go in different directions.
Receiving the email below was empowering to me. It reminded me just how important it is to ensure those we work with know how valued they are.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you have done to support MHFA England over the past 12 years. Your support across the roles of Instructor, Non-Executive Director and advocate has been invaluable throughout, especially at a time when we were seeking to break into the corporate sector. I hope you know how much we have appreciated all your efforts”.
