Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone who has messaged me with regards to my Dad. Very kind of you, he died on the 24th of June, surrounded by the people that loved and admired him and although it has been a very emotional time, the messages that I’ve been besieged with have certainly helped me to come to turns with losing my Father, the legendary Dave Talbot.
Over the past few months I’ve been devising, designing and delivering so many bespoke courses that it has been great to just invest the time and energy and busy myself in my work. I will be having a little rest over the summer, the odd two-week break in which I am refusing to even think about invoices, emails and laminating! So, don’t take it personally if you get an ‘out of office reply.’ After all my mental health is just as important as my physical health and I need that ‘me’ time to recharge and galvanise myself for the adventures that will beckon in 2020.
I’ve been working very closely with a charity in Stoke-on-Trent, the Macari Foundation and I firmly believe that I’ve made some truly wonderful personal and professional friends. We’ve been meeting, each and every week for bespoke training that informs, educates and hopefully keeps the troops entertained and engaged.
Feedback has been 100% positive and has ranged from:
“Another splendid session and informative course from Steven. Delivered as always with enthusiasm and warmth.”
“Superb training, specifically tailored to suit the needs of our organisation. Great range of activities that deliver the points clearly and succinctly.”
“As always amazing with fantastic info!”
“Steven is always entertaining and informative.”
“I will be able to use the skills Steven has taught me to better inform my working practices. Very interesting, a different world on Steve’s training.”
I’ve got a packed calendar for 2019 and it was being brought up by a Dad with an amazing work ethic that has given me the strength and some would say ‘courage’ to go it alone and actually DO IT! So, thank you Dad, you always believed in me and I’m glad that at the end you were so proud of my achievements both as a professional and as your son.
