Having had a traumatic last couple of weeks, thereabouts, with a scare on my eyesight, I thought it might be helpful to relate it here, in case anyone suffers the same symptoms. continue reading »
I’m on yet another Business Course run by The Business Growth Hub in Manchester. We’ve studied various social platforms and I’m now committed to using what I feel has been the most useful part of the course.
That is the ‘Social Media plan’ whereby you choose your platforms, Answer questions to find your strategy, Goal Setting and Calendar all built into a spreadsheet that produces its own Analytics page – so no getting out of the action!
I’ve told people galore about these courses but no one seems to want to come along 😉 : Must be something I said, so I’m writing this ‘blog about it instead.
The only problem is there are so many of these learning sessions and, with the amount of food and snacks that are included, I’m slowly becoming a ‘Learnaholic’ and…..
Hmmm., I think the training is working already. I’m thinking here about telling The Business Growth Hub that they need someone to run a ‘Keep Slim At Your Computer Session’.
I’d better get on social networking and make it happen.
I was summoned by Radio Manchester over to the Birch Service Station on the M62 yesterday morning first thing.
So there we were to the roar of the passing traffic at the Radio Manchester’s travelling reporter’s van cracking through the interview.
I would have liked more time with the lady caller but it went well, all the same – imho 😉
I even had a call from Radio 5 live waiting for me to go on their show but getting to my Greek lesson after the above interview meant that I didn’t get home in time.
Fun day all in all… for a change. 🙂
Having got through the plane journey from The Hughes School of Motoring although, not entirely without hitch as, when having seated myself, a tendency towards OCD made me check ( for about the 50th time ) that my passport was still in the new bumbag, specially bought for the trip to Rome. These genius inventions might be fine for walking around the city, but fumbling to find the right compartment whilst awaiting take off on a Ryan Air Flight is not something to be recommended if, like me, the leg room issue is already beginning to cause anxiety. continue reading »
I’ve just been lost in Rome. With The Vatican, bus tour and a short guide on foot (from my nephew) all done, I had to make my way over to where he was staying with Rachel. Only 1k, but having become slightly worn by the wonderful food, wine and beers etc., my sense of direction was a little out.
Problem is you can run out of time with so many suggestions and ideas, but think I got the basic message across. Had great fun doing this with Kevin, the reporter. He had to shut me up at one point, of course, because I had far too much to say ( as usual ).
My claim to fame this last month is to have been blocked/deleted whatever from 2 people’s FB sites. Hardly a big deal because, as we know, FB friends do not necessarily equate to real friends ( although they could well do ).
On the first occasion, I was merely providing a few facts to some very incorrect reporting by the Press in connection with one of the numerous awards given out within the driving instruction industry by various organisations. The result of my honesty was to see my posting removed. There was also much castigating of those who seemed to want to know the continue reading »
I was enjoying a lie in the other day when the phone rang and I was asked if I’d like to answer questions on the potential changes to driver training and testing. As somebody who always wanted to be a news reader, I decided this would be the nearest I would get to it, so naturally agreed.
This is the link and it is valid for about a week. Oddly enough, about half an hour after the interview, I received a call from Canalside Radio in Bollington, Macclesfield in Cheshire to give an interview with them as well!
Hmm, you never know, I might just get that newsreader job, after all. I’m 2 hours 5 minutes in.
Ps…it’s my first time on the radio, so please be sympathetic 😉
What a wonderful job I have. Just had one of my pupils that has struggled with learning for various reasons and he’s passed third time. The family are absolutely over the moon. I was almost in tears…he’s booked Pass Plus as well . Having said that, I told him to text his mum on the way home, but he said “No, let them sweat…” – don’t you just love ’em? 😉
