In the UK lockdown began in March, just as the days started to get longer and we had a lot more daylight. We were lucky enough to have a fairly good summer, even if the weather in August was tropical one day then winter the next.
Lockdown in winter may mean the chance to completely hibernate for some of us, but not me. Seriously considering buying one of those lamps that gives the effect of daylight. It doesn’t bear contemplating.
There were some interesting posts today on LinkedIn about how our most used vocabulary has changed in 2020. “Agile” was a favourite; businesses have made some tough choices over the last few months in order to survive.
I had only vaguely considered offering online training in the past, but I soon saw that it was going to be the way ahead. Probably for some time.
Courses start at £35pp and are CPD accredited. Better still, you can try before you buy, just click for a free module.
I love LinkedIn and find it incredibly useful, both for keeping in touch with contacts and finding out information. I’ve had a profile for over ten years and have a good range of contacts.
Lockdown boredom has lead me to doing a bit of gardening, particularly growing from seeds. I bought some mini banana tree seeds from the internet and to my great joy they have sprouted.
I posted it on LinkedIn and got my greatest response and traction to date. Are we all in need of a little light relief? The picture is not representative of my seedling, by the way. I am looking at what will be, not what currently is.
That’s a good representation of our current situation. What we plant now will grow and come into fruition in the years to come. Banana bread anyone?
During this time many of us have considered gaining new skills and/or enhancing existing skills. I recently launched online training and would like to invite you to sample the course of your choice for free. Take a look www.anewcolour.co.uk/online-training/ and please pass on to your contacts.
The training is concise, relevant and CPD accredited.
The coronavirus has made many of us rethink our businesses. Most of my work, whether consultancy or training, is done face to face. Not possible for some time and as I live in Cardiff we only had the five mile rule lifted yesterday. Sooooo, I made the decision to offer online training and this is the result:-
CPD accredited, concise and thorough. I say concise because so much online training includes a lot of waffle. No waffle here (who’s got the time or inclination?}
I’ve been very active on LinkedIn to promote the courses and in the process came across some interesting stuff. Let me introduce to you Sarah Townsend the author of Survival Skills for Freelancers, available from Amazon https://amzn.to/2Y1z1cw
