Over the last couple of days I’ve been attending a performance coaching course in Bangor. After some initial trepidation (mostly created by the pre-course reading list that was sent) it turned out to be an interesting couple of days, surrounded by friends and acquaintances from the #BigIdeasWales project with whom I’ve worked for more than 11 years.
We learned lots and had a chance to try out our new-found skills on each other. Thanks to Vicky from The Centre for Coaching for her tolerance and keeping us on track.
On the last afternoon Islwyn Jones from Pen y Bryn Falconry brought Willow, one of his barn owls, to fly in the meeting room. Lifted everybody for the last afternoon’s work.
At the end of the session, David (Maria Garwell the Magician’s husband) produced a balloon modelled apple for our teacher… maybe he was looking for extra marks in his assignment!
Us #BigIdeasWales role models run an eclectic mix of businesses. We speak in schools and colleges across Wales to encourage young people to think about working for themselves at some point in the future. If you’d like more information about what we do have a look at http://business.wales.gov.uk/bigideas/
